Just came back from Marrakech where I had a 4 night stay in La Porte Rouge. Already read on tripadvisor that this riad has an excellent recommendation by other travellers and I must say ... they were right! The staff gives you a warm welcome with tea and cookies, a guidance through the riad and a detailed route you can follow to explore the old city of Marrakech.
The riad is situated at the edge of the medina, no worries ... only 15 minute walk of Jemaa-el-Fna, the main square of Marrakech.
Every day we had breakfast on the roofterrace (a quiet place in the sun) which included 3 different specialities. Great way to discover what locals eat. In the evening you can eat at this riad, you are not obliged to eat outside. And I must say we had the couscous royal ... the portion was enormous ... but delicious :-)
They offer various excursions outside Marrakech and follow up the service of these excursions.
Marrakech is a busy city and the roofterrace is an excellent place to escape of it all: jacuzzi, sunbathing, massages, ... everything you need to relax is offered in this riad. Especially the massage is a must! Choose the 1-hour-massage ... you won't regret it!
Conclusion: this riad is a gem in Marrakech, very friendly staff, excellent service, great food, ... I will definitely return to Marrakech and this riad! Thank you Karen and your staff to make our stay wonderfull!
