I staid in Marrakesh for a week with my girlfriend and we have to say it has not been the most pleasant experience.We staid at Riad Chi Chi for the entire stay, the staff working there were very helpful and the breakfast is ok, however after a few day's we had the unpleasant experience of having money taken out of the safe while out in the city. The event turned the holiday into a very bad experience, having senior management take the issue very lightly was not very comforting. I was recommended to report the issue to the local police by the senior manager in order to get our money back from the insurance company. Considering that the manager knew that the police in Marrakesh is a complete bureaucracy, we were still recommended to report the issue to the police. We didn't get a police report in time and we have not had anything sent from the management in order to help with our claim.I had to spend over a day walking around from police station to police station trying to report the crime. If the issue with the theft would have been handled better this trip would have been ok. I would not recommend Marrakesh or this particular riad to anyone that doesn't like crowded, smelly or any place where hassling is present at a ridiculous level.
