My wife & I have just spent 4 nights at Riad La Porte Rouge & enjoyed our stay very much.
We had the small bedroom on the ground floor out of choice because it was the cheapest,it was very nicely decorated as I believe are all the rooms, it may be a little compact for some but it suited us fine. It is a little noisy in the morning as you can hear breakfast being prepared but again you get what you pay for. All in all we thought the riad was great value, it has a lovely relaxing atmosphere with beautiful decor, soft music & soothing fragrances. We were lucky to have good weather & so ate our lovely breakfasts up on the roof terrace which is also a nice place to relax, the Jacuzzi being a nice extra. We ate at the riad a couple of times, the food is very good.
Karen is a very nice lady & very accommodating, we found all the staff friendly & helpful.
Location wise the riad is a little way out of the center but once we got used to the route we did not find it to much of a problem to walk, day or night, the staff will organize a taxi for you if you do not want to walk & they are very reasonable price wise. All in all we found all the other delights of La Porte Rouge far out weighed the location issue.
Once again we would like to thank Karen & all the staff at La Port Rouge for making our our first visit to Marrakech so enjoyable. Joe & Helen Jones.
