My family and I have just returned from a five night stay at Ksar Anika. This was a return trip to Marrakech and Ksar Anika because we loved both so much. We don’t often return to the same place but we were not disappointed. I can honestly say that, having travelled the world extensively, I have never experienced such welcoming hospitality and attentive service. From the moment we arrived, the service was as outstanding as the first time we visited, nothing was too much trouble. Madjouline, the Manager and Abderrazak, the Deputy Manager were always on hand to help with our queries and offer suggestions regarding our holiday plans. Abderrazak also arranged our trip to the Atlas Mountains. We were here to celebrate my husband’s and my daughter’s birthday. On both of these days, birthday cake was unexpectedly supplied and a lot of fuss was made of them. Every afternoon we relaxed on the roof terrace, soaking up the sun, where we were supplied with complimentary mint tea and cookies. We had dinner and lunch twice in the Riad, both times the food was delicious and the service very attentive. A hamman is definitely recommended at the Riad. There is a lot of hustle and bustle in the Medina of Marrakech and visitors should be prepared for this, but it is also part of the fun. However, entering the oasis of Ksar Anika is total bliss in comparison. A great way to start the New Year!
