I have just returned from a 4 day get away in Marrakesh, which I found a must-see city, among the wide range of places to visit in Morocco.
Most of my full satisfaction and love for this city comes from the fantastic welcome and gentleness given by the riad's owners.The riad is beautifully decorated with exquisite taste, as well as it offers the traveller the long-waited break from the hustle and bustle of the medina. Slightly away from the beaten track, but still very near the Grande place, the patio takes center-stage as meeting point to exchange our impressions of the city with the owners. The swimming pool is heaven sent after long walks in the medina. Dinner is served in the riad upon request, to the travellers' choice, and no doubt this is one of the riad's strengths; plenty savoury moroccan food, mostly tajin. don't miss it! Daily excursions outside Marrakesh, such as Essaouira or the Atlas, can also be organised from the riad at convenient prices. Airport transfers are recommendable and they are managed by the riad owners too if needed. In short, a very lovely place to savour the peacefulness of Marrakesh, yet with excellent location and only one stone throw away from the very heart of the city center, The riad also has spa and gym facilities ad a wonderful roof top to have breakfast and dinner, at your convenience.
Just a small detail to comment on the owners' lovely gesture. The leaving day was my birthday and they brought us some cake with candles for a proper celebration. Thanks Joce! I will go back to your riad when I visit Marrakesh again! a Bientôt!
