We timed this perfectly - escaping the rain in the UK and going to a destination with a good chance of warmer weather at the beginning of February. Due to restrictions on carrying liquids in hand luggage failed to take sun cream and got a little burnt - the sun can be deceptively intense out there! But how lovely to be dry and feel that heat. We were met at the airport and had a quick ride to the centre where we were met again from the taxi by Maison mk staff, and a very warm welcome on arriving in the riad - all very organised. The riad really is an oasis of calm just around the corner from the bustle of the souks and the Jemaa el Fna. The location could not be better, near enough to be able to wander our from the riad to the market and also close enough to where you can get a taxi to venture further afield. Inside Maison mk and up on the terrace it is so peaceful, even though in the evening you can see the smoke from all the cooking in the medina it is extraordinarily quiet. Maison mk is beautifully designed and decorated in a calming contemporary Moroccan style using soft earthy colours throughout with a lot of thought having gone into what guests might want during their stay. A wonderfully comfortable bed with the best quality bedding, a huge bath, power shower and thick bath robes - you will not be disappointed with the luxury. We stayed in room 2 which was more spacious than I had imagined with lovely personal touches that you wouldn't find in a larger establishment. The staff were full of character, cheerful and attentive, but not at all intrusive and made you feel totally at home. The food was delicious, carefully and freshly prepared and great Moroccan wines. I loved the fact that the breakfast alternates - but not just French and Moroccan, with yoghurt and delicious fruits, cheese and honey. Make the most of the spa at the riad, but you must book before you go. If you have never had a Hammam treatment it is a must. We had the Afternoon Treat which is where one of you has a massage for 45 mins whilst your partner has the traditional Hammam and then you swap, followed by full English afternoon tea which we had up on the terrace in the warm sunshine - absolute bliss. You will feel totally relaxed and at ease at Maison mk. We will definitely visit again and next time take a larger case to purchase some of the lovely things that Maison mk has to offer and also to buy some of the wonderful things found in the souks.
