we booked the Riad, not knowing anything about marrakech, we left the airport and was greeted by a very kind taxi driver, which was organised by the Riad!! thank god they arranged this for us as we would have been very lost. we got to the street where the riad was and it is down a back alley, not what we expected at all, it was in a very poor part, but this is to be expected once you understand marrakesh, the poor part is very poor and the rich is very rich, however when you open open the doors, that you think will be horrible, you are greeted by a WONDERFUL , VERY BEAUTIFUL Entrance, the design is very traditional,
the only downside is there is not enough lighting in the rooms, and there are no plugs, the baths are very big so Ideal for a Romantic weekend away and because of the lack of lighting this could set the mood,
the hotel was very clean, and Mohammed was always on hand to help,
they do not serve alcohol, this is nothing to do with religious beliefs, so they are more than happy to let you drink any drinks you bring yourself, you can buy them in the local carrefour, we even went drinking with the owners who were very kind, the Wife has such a friendly warm character.
Mohammed will arrange quad biking, which I will reccoment, Camel riding I wont, ( personal bad experience nothing to do with Riad) definately worth having a Hamman it was AMAZING!!!
All in all this is a lovely place, just research the location and make sure you are happy with it, although everything is a 50Dirham ( £5 or 5 Euro) taxi ride away so not that far at all!
All I can say is thank you for a lovely stay
