“An oasis of calm”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2008

I live and work in France and was invited by my company to go on bit of a jolly over to Marrakesh for 6 days. Having never been there and wishing not to cause offence I accepted and arrived there mid afternoon with 13 French colleagues.

We'd already organised transport from the airport, so we were not concerned about getting to the Riad. What was surprising was that as we arrived at the medina, Regis, the boss, and Adil from the riad were waiting for us with luggage barrows. To get to the riad involved making our way along a few narrow lanes, past many little shops, where, at each one, we were greeted like old friends.

Once at the riad we were shown into a beautiful cool inner courtyard where we were invited to sit and drink mint tea whilst our baggage was delivered to our rooms.

Nothing was too much for the staff. The dinners, an optional evening thing, was superb, prepared during the day by Yassine. The aromas were just intoxicating. Breakfast was simple, but plentiful and served on the roof terraces, under welcome shade.

Rooms, well certainly my room, are simple, but well finished, clean and spacious. Many of the orignal riad details have been preserved.

What really struck me about the riad was that although we were only minutes from the central square of Marrakesh and the surrounding area was a warren of activity and noise, once inside it was as if we were a million miles from anywhere.

A month a go I was out in Bahrain for a couple of weeks for the Grand Prix. I spent a lot of time at the Ritz Carlton which is an excellent 5 star establishment with a myriad of facilities, but in all honesty it wasn't a patch on the riad.!
