My wife and I have just come back from a 4 days stay at Maison MK. What can I say: It really worth it. But let me start some months ago, because Maison MK is not only what you experience once in Marrakech, it is also the advise, help and all the support you receive from Paul (owner) and all the rest of the staff in order to prepare your stay in Marrakech. From excursions and guided tours to restaurant bookings for dinner, and even they look for a gymnasium where we could go the days we wanted and pay just per day (even though they have their own “mini” gym). And I can tell you that they work with the best of the best. The company they work for tours and excursions…what can I say about our guide, just that when we arrived from our first tour we immediately asked Jallel (the manager at the Riad) if we could have this guide for all our excursions!! Thank you Afid for showing us your country.
And now let’s go to the Riad itself. First of all, and really a very important thing: “What you see is what you get”. If you visit their web site, that’s Maison MK. No “photoshop”, lovely decorated rooms, 2 minutes walking to Jema El Fna square and the Souks, incredible terrace for breakfast…and really lovely and nice staff. All staff members, from managers to the girls cleaning are always trying to deliver you the best possible experience, always smiling. They never answer “no”, and if you receive the first “no” answer, it’s because you are asking for something impossible.
About breakfast, they serve a really good breakfast consisting in yogurt, croissants, bread and butter, orange juice…and you can also order any kind of eggs or omelette. We also had lunch the day we arrived, very good chicken and tomato salad (you will eat tons or tomato salad in Marrakech). We also had a private dinner our last night, they have a short list of wines, all from Morocco. But they surprised me, we drank a white one which was really good and very reasonable priced. Regarding the food, as they do not have a “menu list”, you have to arrange the day before what you would like for dinner, but the cooker is really good and our dinner, consisting in a fresh cucumber soup, avocado salad, mojito, monk fish and strawberry desert was really good.
I’m sorry but we did not try any spa treatment, but I tried the TV room, two comfortable sofas, a projector and a home cinema which makes you feel like in the cinema. You just need a coke and pop corn. Why I didn’t ask? Maybe they could have provided also this!!
I think I’m not missing anything, if we come back to Marrakech we will definitely stay at Maison Mk.
