My girlfriends and I recently stayed at the Riad Reves D'Orient in Marrakech in November 2013. Once we got over the initial trepidation of walking through many narrow endless lanes to reach the Riad, we were greeted by Samira and her team of capable staff. Immediately they made us feel special in their "home" giving us a lovely room to accomodate all 3 of us. We were then given a quick guide of how to get to and from the Riad to the main square. While this Riad is about 10 -15 minutes from the entrance and to the square, we soon found our feet and were quite at home here. Our new friends, especially the young and talented Youssef took great trouble to greet us everyday and to spend a few minutes with us each day.
Youssef is a charming young man with many talents. Funny, engaging, informative and downright helpful. Having someone like him, who speaks good English and with a good idea of Marrakech and Morocco in general, is invaluable!
The icing on the cake was the lovely hammam and massage performed by the girls at the Riad. Thank you for such a wonderful experience. Even the Chef went out of her way to make dinner the way we liked it!
I would definately encourage others to try out Samira and her wonderful Riads. The personal touches are indeed a gift!
