The Riad Dixneuf la Ksour will go down as the top highlight of our many worldwide travels. During our stay at the Riad, my wife and I enjoyed both the atmosphere of being part of the old city of Marrakesh and the comfort of luxurious accommodations. Each day, we could depend on meals to be prepared fresh and delicious. In fact, we had the opportunity to visit the kitchen and observe the cook as she took pride in creating her culinary achievements. The courteous staff contributed to our pleasurable stay by continuously providing excellent service. Yet, the most noteworthy and lasting memory about Riad Dixneuf la Ksour was the compassion and support that Madeline, her husband, Cyrus, Mustafa and the entire staff enthusiastically bestowed upon us when my wife and I were confronted with a personal emergency that jeopardized our entire trip. Their care, concern, and conscientious assistance went beyond our highest expectations and turned a serious crisis into a manageable ‘bump in the road’. When we departed Marrakesh, we could truly say we were leaving our newly found family. To Madeline and Cyrus, Mustafa, Ishmael and the entire staff of Riad Dixneuf la Ksour, Patricia and I thank you for allowing us to experience a wonderful memory of the human spirit.
