Many aspects of this riad are good. We were in a superior room which was large enough with additional seating. The beds were fairly comfortable and as this was February we were glad to have plenty of bedding available. The sheets and towels were of particular high quality. The architecture of the riad is lovely and it's also pretty quiet and peaceful there. On the roof terrace there was comfortable seating and a couple of very comfortable sun beds. Mohammed does cook evening meals which you can arrange and pay for ( if you haven't pre-booked half board ) or he can recommend and take you to restaurants.
However in certain ways he didn't seem to be that hospitable although this may have been in part just the contrast with the wonderful hospitality of Riad Baladin in Essaouira. Breakfast was at 9.00 and generally immovable, so that the day that both we and the other couple were staying there had to leave at 8.00 to take a tour, there was no option to have even a snack before we left ( and we did ask in advance). On the day we had to leave for the airport though he did bring breakfast forward a bit. Although the room prices are not high, I felt that the prices for alcohol and his evening meal and for wifi were a bit steep. I wasn't keen on the restaurants he recommended and wondered whether he had any vested interest in us patronising these particular establishments. Personally I would go with the Time Out Guide to Marrakech for recommendations.
