Riad dar ilham is a great place, 12 km or so away from the heart of Marrakech, it's a great place to unwind and relax. The real beauty, is that it allows you to go into the heart of Marrakech on your own terms, and then retreat, and relax when you want.
Te riad has a fantastic pool, is super relaxed, and the food is top draw, if a little expensive in Marrakech terms, bjttje service from the newy acquired Imane and the entire team is highly personal, as an example, due to our departure flight of 20.40, we were offered an additional room in which we could shower etc after enjoying the accommodation for the best part of an extra day.
You should know that this place is not centrally located, it's a 20 euros round trip into town if you don't line up with the free buses, and the food is a little pricey, but your research should brace you for this, overall, it's top draw.
However, if relaxation is your thing, this is definately the place.
One thing for the owners, wireless Internet connection, it's really a must that you improve this, the intermittent service is frustrating.
This is a top 3 place in Marrakech, suffering because some of the people giving bad reviews have not done their geographical homework, enjoy.
Practically, the riad lays on complimentary shuttle buses at 11 am and 6pm,
