It seems every one around the country is restoring a family riad and turning it into a luxury B and B. The fad began in Marrakech, where, I am told over 450 B and B’s now occupy the medina (This makes me shudder. Were did the "locals" flee to?)
I usually don’t recommend accommodations (simply because there are so many new hotels and B and Bs that I haven’t visited). Riad Al Manar, however, is located a few miles from our home in Azemmour, and it is lovely, if you want to get away from it all. This riad, in reality this beautifully decorated, and spacious villa set in the midst of a park like garden, is located just outside the resort of El Jadida, about 50 minutes south of Casablanca. You will need a car. Getting there might be a bit of a challenge, so be sure to reserve ahead.
