Family-Friendly Riad

Moroccan culture is a family-friendly culture. They love children. In the streets children will be greeted with warm smiles and lots of attention. If you are here for more than a weekend there is a good chance the locals will take the time to learn your kids' names.

Because most of the medinas are very old, their streets are often bumpy and can present some challenges to those with small children. In addition, the Moroccan riad can be a great place for a family vacation, but because of style, amenities and other guests staying within earshot, some cater more for families with small children, while others are not adequately suited to host these type of guests. 

A Few Questions to Ask Your Potential Riad to Get the Most Out of Your Stay:

  • Do you welcome families with young children? Becaue of acoustics and types of travelers, some riads feel uncomfortable servicing clients with young children. It is nothing personal, each riad has to think about what kind of clients they can service. You will be happier in finding a riad that feels it can take care of you well.
  • Do you have things like high chairs and baby beds? Riads are not like large chain hotels and some of them are equipped with things like baby chairs and beds and others are not. Make sure you ask before you come. If you need a bathtub for your child be sure to ask if your room is equipped with one.
  • Is your riad noisy at night? Depending on the clientele of the riad, they might be noisier late at night when a small child might be a sleep and quieter in the mornings when a small child would want to play.
  • Will my room be big enough to accomodate our child? Some of the rooms in the riads are fairly small and would not be able to accomodate a small child in them in addition to the bed that is already there.
