The superb level of service started even before we got on the flight. Charlotte and Patrice, the owners were emailing us about airport transfer and restaurant recommendations which was really nice as neither of us have ever been to Morocco before.
We arrived early on a Friday so the big square in the Medina was not chaotic yet. The riad itself was located in a very convenient location and everything about the riad itself was also excellent, from the small pool in the courtyard to the beautiful decor and the comfy beds. The best part about Riad Itrane is definitely the staff.
We unfortunately didn't get to meet Charlotte and Patrice as they were away on family business in France, but the Manager Abdou, Abdel, Fatima and all the rest were absolutely brilliant. It is these types of personalities that should be i the hospitality industry; they were friendly, helpful, and no request was too big!
We spent two nights in Agane room and it was a nice relaxing place to unwind after sightseeing all day. We then went to Essaouira for one night and returned to Riad Itrane for our last night. We wanted a nice Moroccan meal at Itrane and Fatima made us the most delicious Chicken Lemon tagine and Moroccan salad. The dessert Nos Nos is also a must try for those who like orange and milk!
We are looking forward to visiting Marrakesh again just to stay at the Riad Itrane!
