Just back from an impulse short break in Marrakech - it was fantastic! A late email to Paulo and he immediately confirmed that we would be met at the airport. We were arriving quite late so asked if we could eat - no problem. We asked for lemon chicken tagine as I had read from another reviewer that it was good. Ishmail met us from the taxi, took us to a lovely suite and set a romantic table for us. Lovely. Breakfast served by Ishmail (does he ever sleep!?) on the terrace in the morning was delicious and plentiful. Paulo booked an excursion for us for the following day to the Atlas Mountains and a 'Hammam' at the fabulous Bains de Marrakech before personally walking us to the Djemaa el Fna and showing us the signs to lookout for so we could find our way back. We ate dinner at his Italian restaurant in the new city. Delicious and excellent value. He had not pushed it at all - I had read that he also ran an Italian restaurant so asked if we could book a meal. All in all we had a fabulous stay, unlike a previous reviewer, felt perfectly safe walking 'home' at night and found our way easily by following the signs. The warmth and helpfulness of the staff at the Riad could not be faulted. We shall definitely stay there again.
