Thankyou to Isabel, Sanaa and all of the staff at the Riad Vert for making our first stay in Marrakech so truely wonderful. Where do I start? We were welcomed to the Riad with mint tea and cakes. Much needed after a very long wait at the airport for the transfer organised by Travel Republic. A tip for people booking, Isabel can arrange airport transfers, please email her directly to arrange this. Isabel arranged for our transfer back to the airport as we didnt want to miss our flight due to a late pick or worse no pick up at all. Our taxi arrived on time and took us directly to the airport. Email the Riad directly if you need any information. firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our room was decorated in beautiful colours with lovely furniture and was perfect in every way. It was cleaned to perfection every day. It is not just the rooms that are kept spotless, all of the Riad is. The Riad itself is exactly as you see in the photos. It is beautiful, so peaceful and calm after days out shopping and walking. Towels are provided for the roof terrace and it has comfortable sun loungers which is rare. We loved the sun hats! Again this is yet another added extra that is provided for you.
Our days out sightseeing and shopping in the souks were made easier by Isabel arranging for a taxi to take us and then giving us a pick up point for when we wanted to go back to the Riad. She provided us with maps and tips on where to go and where not to. Nothing was too much trouble.
Food - again, im lost for words. We ate at the Riad everynight, experiencing moroccan food prepared by Fatima (thank you Fatima). Each night a different meal was served. Starter, main and desert. I think we will both need to diet now we are back.
As two women travelling alone, the minute we stepped into the Riad we knew we were going to be safe, looked after and thoroughly spoilt by everyone. We were treated as friends from the moment we arrived. Thankyou. Whatever we needed, we just asked and it was provided.
We changed money at the Riad (at a very good rate) which saved us the hassle of finding a bureau de change also free wifi is available which is another added bonus.
Riad Vert was a real find for us. Our trip was made so much more unforgettable through staying here and meeting the lovely genuine people who run it. Thankyou again. Our only regret is that we did not stay long enough. We will return. Elaine and Ali xx
