Riad Alwachma is not what the pictures and description make you believe. The riad and terrace are very small. The room we occupied was tiny with barely enough room between the walls and the bed. The bathroom was also very small, very dark and uninviting. Our 2 day/3 night trip to Marrakech was a last-minute excursion from the Riviera where we were vacationing from the US. We had exchanged emails with the manager a few days before our arrival to find out availability and told her we were planning to spend the last two nights of our stay in her riad. When we told the manager, we would not be staying the second night (a Sunday night), she became very unpleasant which confirmed our initial bad impression. Because we did not want more recrimination, we paid for another night and left as fast as we could. With French school vacation over and on a Sunday night, It was easy to find an elegant riad, spacious, with a big beautiful terrace. We speak from experience. One of us spent 2 years in Morroco with Peace Corps some years ago in a small village near Marrakech and is very familiar with riads.
