This riad is a little far from the medina and I do not believe the owners are around much. It could use a Serious deep cleaning, capital S. From the carpets to the throw pillows on the bed, the terrace upstairs and the breakfast room downstairs, the shower the bedspread... it all needed cleaning.
At breakfast they served us on Bavarian China and paper napkins..... lol!!!! Same continental spread of assorted pastries, coffee, tea and morrocan pancakes - seem to be the standard from the riads to the sofitel.
The staff was helpful at check-in and that was pretty much it. They had a splash pool that was downstairs? and needed some cleaning as well - the water was very cloudy.

I am a muslim and my girlfriend is a european who is older than me we are staying in the Ibis in Casablanca, taking the train to Marrakesh and stayin in the Riad Nejma Lounge, will it be a problem at the airport in Caablanca and Riad/Hotels that we are not married and share a room?
It depends on your nationality. If European or 'western' not an issue. Otherwise, they can get a bit funny and ask for a marriage certificate...
Again, the second scenario is less likly in larger reputable hotels... I'm not sure where Riad Nejma fits in...
How are they to know you are not married? A lot of women travel on a passport which has been issued in their maiden name.
I shouldn't think it would be a problem at all.
We are in the same situation and visited Morocco in December. Noone was the slightest bit interested in whether we were married or not.
It will not be a problem at the airport that you are not married, but ALL sex before marriage is illegal in Morocco,hence there being no age of consent.I take it that you are non european and although possible to share a room within the confines of private riad,I would be prepared to book that extra room should hotel management ask for proof of matrimony,as all hotel and riad owners are culpable if the law is broken by their guests on their premises.However it should not prove to be a problem,just be prepared to get that extra room if challenged on your marital status.
OK, let me clarify the previous reply I made. It depends on Nationalities and what you look like.
I know a person who was a European national, not white skinned, and a lady who was also a European national, fair skinned and they got a hasstle when getting hotels.
So it could happen or as the other poster mentioned, maybe you will have no problems. It all depends on the person at the checkin desk on the day...
All the best with your travels...
well lets be serious........no one gonna ask u in the airport if she's ur wife or not but just in some hotels "not all of them" they can ask u if u gonna share the same room "if u have a none arabe looks no one gonna ask u anything". But not all the hotel, plus thers allways some arangement when it come to that if ur muslim.
otherwise in a riad or any other place "home....ect" no one ask.
