Our recent stay at The Repose led us to discover truly personal, caring service that was well beyond extraordinary. Jan and Rachid (and their talkative daughter...) welcomed us for our final night in Morocco. We were treated as if it were a family reunion. Our memories of Morocco were truly punctuated with an exclamation point with our memorable stay here....

Everything was great from our arrival with a great welcome tea(Jan pastries are so good!!) to the time of leaving. We enjoyed the beauty of this riad as well as the very good food for dining or breakfast served by a kind staff.

Stayed here with my family. Had a great time, the riad was very cosy and exquisite with great attention to detail. Was very different to anywhere else I have stayed at (in a good way). Staff were very helpful and sincere. If your looking for something which is not 'touristy' then this place is ideal, a real taste of Morocco...

Little riad with beautiful clean rooms. Owners and staff are making you feel at home and they make sure you really do. Fantastic roofterrace. Possiblity to have a very tasteful diner inside or on the roofterrace. Laidback and relaxed atmosphere. Jan, one of the owners, will make sure you will not walk around like a headless chicken by giving you...

We had booked this Riad for one night and just before we arrived our booking was cancelled. This might not have been the Riad fault as booking agents like Expedia do not release our details until the hotel has paid there commission. The owner of the Repose did find us a another hotel for the same price, which as not...

Dear Sir and Madam We hope you are both well. Thank you very much for your review on tripadvisor. We were rather confused by your review so wanted to clarify a few points: As soon as we realized there was a problem with your agency booking, we emailed you exactly 10 days before your arrival date to inform you of...

Stayed at this riad last September and it was one of the nicest places I have ever stayed at. In terms of just plain decor and comfort, this riad is totally beautiful. Every detail of it was designed with much love and care - that much is obvious. The rooms are beautiful, the common area, and the rooftop terrace. It's...

We went to Rabat for the Mawazine Festival and a trip through Morocco. Our first stop was the Riad of Jan and Rachid in Sale. We were immediately impressed but the beautifully restored Riad.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Repose, is an oasis of calm in the heart of Sale's traditional medina, Rabat. Lovingly restored by the owners, Rachid and Jan, this luxury riad has been renovated and decorated using traditional materials and craftsmanship to give a haven of peace and tranquility. The whole riad oozes Moroccan charm and each of the 4 suites has its own unique identity. The salon is ideal for dining in the cooler months, reading a book or playing games. The courtyard is great for sipping tea, listening to the splashes of the fountain, while the terrace is fabulous for breakfast, sunbathing or siestas in the shade. With Rachid and Jan on-site, the hospitality and customer service are second-to-none and the combination of their local knowledge and awareness of international expectations ensures a warm and comfortable stay. ... more   less
