Recommended personally by a friend, Riad alboraq absolutely made our stay in Marrakech - it was exactly what we were hoping for and pictured as our 'Aladdin's Cave' away from the hustle of the vibrant city.
The owner Michelle was amazing - she made our every move happen with great ease and was so welcoming - be sure to ask her to organise day trips out of marrakech, drivers, airport transfers, even day spas for you. She goes out of her way to make you feel at home but without the 'too close' feeling of a b&b.
Smiro, Sieda and Aisha (the other staff) were absolutely incredible - they are so hospitable and so warm in sharing their Moroccan culture with you. ALWAYS take them up on their offer to cook for you - it is absolutely divine genuine Moroccan food served either inside by the heavenly scented kitchen and appealing pool, or on the rooftop terrace covered in sun lounges, shaded nooks to relax in and the beautiful nighttime atmosphere of marrakech. Dont feel like you're cheating by eating at the hotel - Sieda is like 100 great street cooks wrapped up into one super talented lady - and so entertaining too! They even serve wine - a comforting luxury in marrakech. Smiro even showed us how To make Moroccan tea - a tradition we look forward to taking home with us.
Location was perfect - easy walking to the souks and central square, and cheap cab ride from anywhere in the cuty. Rooms were stunning and central areas begged to be relaxed in.
Overall, I cannot recommend it enough - thank you so much for the team for sharing you're beautiful riad with us.
We'll be back!!!!
