Me and my boyfriend LOVED our stay at Riad Utopia, the rooms were lovely, HUGE bathroom, the staff were very friendly (especially the guy that served breakfast and worked at night), yummy breakfast, AMAZING dinner (the best we had whilst in Marrakesh by far).
The whole Riad is very pretty and is decorated very nicely, everywhere is lit up with candles at night and looks lovely!
On arrival a member of staff who I presume was the manager brought us mint tea, biscuits and a map and sat down with us to point out places of interest on the map which was very helpful.
The Riad was a little too far away from Jemaa el Fna for our liking! Some other reviews say 10 minutes, I'm not sure why, as it takes 20-30 minutes to walk. We tried walking a couple of different routes but it still takes this long.
Watch out for the guys that hang around the car park where taxis drop you of for the Riad, especially if you have just arrived from the airport, they will walk you to the Riad door (even if you say you know where you are going!) and then want paying for this! We told the guy we didn't need any help but when he wouldn't leave us, my boyfriend handed over about 5 euro for this "service" but the guy insisted that we pay him 30 euro!!! ..we weren't sure how safe the area was so had to pay this, but stand your ground and say no the max you should pay for this is 20-30 Dirham (2-3 euro)! ...this isn't any fault of Riad Utopia just thought I would point it out so that future guests can learn from our mistakes! :)
