From the moment we arrived at lovely Riad Shalimar we felt at home. Marie Helene is the most amazing hostess and she was waiting for us with a great mint tea that we enjoyed in the amazing patio of the riad. We chatted in a friendly atmosphere while the cook prepared the most fantastic tagine!! I miss her cooking so much! She was simply great! Better than many of the tagines we had in restaurants around Morocco! We stayed in a room at the groundfloor, very comfy, clean, nicely decorated and very fresh and cool for the high temperatures of Marrakesh. We spent our first night there and then headed to the desert and we could not book another room in this riad for our return. Since we had a problem with the other riad we called Marie Helene and her lovely husband Etienne who invited us for dinner that night and helped us out! They were just amazing and fastastic people!! We are so grateful because they made our stay in Marrakesh one of the most unforgettable things in our lives!! It is not very easy to wander around the Medina, you can get lost very easily but they were always there to help us, we could call them at any time and always gave us directions! Look no more, Riad Shalimar is THE place to stay!!! We will definitely return there!! :o)
