We arranged for a pickup from the airport, which for 15 euro is well worth to find the riad at first and see your surroundings. We were kindly greeted at the door and served tea right away. The fountain wasn't working so the water looked a little dirty. At first this concerned me but I quickly got over it. This isn't a 5-star resort so don't expect that. But you will find clean and cozy rooms, friendly staff and quaint surroundings. A 15 minute walk to the center of Jemaa el Fna, the walk is recommended for shopping as the shopkeepers don't haggle you as much as in the souks (which I found to be rather unpleasant). Tea and chicha on the terrace is perfect for relaxing after a day in Marrakech.
I also recommend the day trip to the Atlas mountains. Take the trip to the waterfalls...it's worth it, even after paying for a "guide" to take you (people in this area rely on tourists so just be kind and fork over the 100 dirham)...our guide wouldn't take us all the way to the top but we just paid him for showing us how to get there and then went to the top on our own. It's a great view so do it! Just make sure you bring appropriate shoes or go barefoot (like I did). I also recommend the hammam just near the riad by Palace Bahia. We went on the last day and it was the perfect ending to our time in Marrakech.
Breakfast is simple but again, you're in Marrakech...you will be served a typical North African breakfast (coffee, OJ, breads and toppings like jam, cocoa and butter)....don't expect a full spread. You can order dinner from the riad just be sure to give them a 24 hour notice.
