I decided to take my boyfriend on a surprise trip. I had always dreamed with visiting Marrakech. So I wanted to stay in a nice affordable place. A friend recommended to stay in a "Riad" vs a typical hotel, since Riads are the typical "luxury" house in Marrakech. And staying at a Riad was the best thing we could do. Advise, do your homework before you go to Marrakech, there are nearly 1200 Riads in the old city and thay can dramatically vary one from another in terms of quality and price. Riad Al Rimal is a neat place to stay, very cozy, every single area of the Riad is very well decorated and the rooms, oh boy very very nice nice nice. We stayed for 7 nights, 4 in a suite and the other 3 in the "DIAMOND" suite, supposed to be the best in the hotel, honestly we were a bit deceived, the rom is for sure bigger but the private terrace they offer...mmm... not good at all. It is the only part of the hotel were the decoration was overlooked. It is really a shame, cause with a bit more decoration this will be a beautiful area. So you will be better off in a regular suite, they are beautiful !!!
One other thing, when booking your reservation or when being in the hotel ask for Samuel, he is the director and boy he knows his job, very nice, gives good advice and he is just a very pleasant person to talk to, very friendly. Good job Samuel, you make the difference in the Riad !!!
Food is so so in the hotel, you better go to a restaurant, my suggestion DO NOT MISS OUT ON THE "TANJIA" awesome restaurant, it is defenetly in my top 5 list !!! For those who love ceasar salad and are frustrated cause when you are on a trip it seams no one can make a decent cesear salad, well in the TANJIA they got it right !!! Also go to the Ouzoud waterfalls if you have the time for an outing, and if you got tired of the souks. I was impressed, with the falls, was not expecting that at all, nice surprise.
