I travelled to Morocco this summer and stayed in Marrakech for the last 2 days of my holiday. I feel extremely fortunate to have spent the last night of my trip in Riad Sekkat as the location is fantastic: very central (5 minutes from the main square) however the riad was beautiful and it felt like and escape from the hussel and bussel of marrakech into a picturesque, peaceful paradise. My partner and I opted to eat dinner on the terrace which is covered in pretty flowers (and also provides a good private area where you can sunbathe and relax). The food was fantastic- although I had stayed in a very expensive 5 star hotel before staying at Riad Sekkat the meal eaten on the terrace was the most delicious meal I had eaten throughout my stay in Morrocco and was also very reasonable. If you drink alcohol (as I do) this is also offered at an additional cost and is very good quality.
The owners of the Riad are absolutely fabulous: not only extremely informative about options about what to do and where to go but also made us feel very comfortable and provided lovely accommodation where we could feel secure and "at home". Everything is kept nice and clean and the beds are very comfy.
I will definately be returning and would highly recommend to anyone travelling in Marrackech.
