A lovely Riad with a wonderful host to pass your time in Marrakech!
We arrived in Marrakech at the end of a hectic two-week trip through Spain and Morocco and found ourselves without a hotel for a night due to a glitch in our planning! We were prevented from having to spend the night in our car by Michelle’s extremely kind efforts in looking for a place for us to stay!
While she had just returned from vacation and her Riad was not yet open to receive guests – she managed in a very short time (and late at night) to phone around and find us a place to stay. This help was invaluable in our time of need and we are very, very grateful!
The next morning we checked into the Michelle’s own Riad. The place is tastefully decorated with beautiful touches. We were offered an upgraded room, the XXX suite, which was spacious, nicely decorated and very comfortable. The bathroom was modern with a well-functioning toilet. The sink drains were a bit slow, but this is to be expected in a country like Morocco where individual Riads cannot possibly alter the plumbing system of an old city. We encountered no problems with the hot water in the showers; there was plenty even for back-to-back showers.
The satellite television has a number of great channels which we enjoyed watching very much.
I must mention that when I arrived at the Riad, I was not feeling very well. Michelle came to the rescue again with medication which we gratefully accepted as the pharmacies in Morocco keep very odd hours!
We always slept in so never actually sampled the fantastic breakfasts other guests have raved about. However, Michelle did arrange for a packed breakfast for us to take to the airport for our early flight out of Morocco. Much appreciated!
The riad also arranged for our ride airport – a comfort and reliable service, which we would recommend.
Michelle’s service was superb and the staff were great, helpful and friendly. Overall, a very nice stay at a very nice Riad!
