This being my second visit to Marrakesh I had an idea what to expect but Zam Zam exceeded those great expectations. It's like Bleeding Heart Yard in London in that it's bleeding hard to find but once you've mastered those little alleyways you reach a real oasis. The fabulous courtyard has a full size palm tree in the centre reaching through to the sky. Nobody could give you a warmer greeting than Faysal as you arrive and for the ladies in the kitchen nothing is too much trouble. The "sandwich" they rustled up just before we left for the airport was the best I've eaten.
Aziz is a sort of legend in the area so I'll post his picture in the courtyard and you can see the stunning doorway to one of the rooms. Marcus has assembled a charming staff and the place is immaculate old school Moroccan chic. Lovely rooms, huge beds, yummy breakfast and tranquility much needed after shopping in the souks!! Loved it.
