I have wanted to go to Morocco for a while, and now I am really glad we did. It is a country and culture very far from what we are used to, but for me it was like a fairytale with the maze of souks, the markeds, spices and mountains.
Riad Cocoon is a special place, that made us relax in the middle of the busy city. It has a warm and welcoming atmosphere, and a friendly and helpful staff.
From the moment we ordered to after we got home, Corinne and her staff did everything to make sure we had an unforgettable vacation!
We stayed in the Green Eyes Room which was very nice, with rosé petals on the bed when we arrived. The bed was good and the bathroom was clean and nice!
The first night we had preordered dinner at the Riad. It was served on the beautiful roof terrace. Corinne met us here to welcome us and give us some advice on places to visit while in Marrakech. And the food was amazing! We had dinner here several night after, perfect those days we had been on excursions.
Every morning we were served fresh breakfast on the roof terrace. It contained of warm and fresh bread variants, fresh orange juice, coffee, jam, honey and some cake. Perfect!
The Riad is located in the middle of the narrow souks of the Medina. The first day, the staff guided us through some of the many roads. But we had no problem finding our way back, because a nearby museum had signes all over.
I would have to recommend the TTHP Maroc-Excurion tour company. We went for two 1-day excursions to The High Atlas mountains. It was amazing! I was stunned and shocked round every turn on the road about how fast the landscape can change and a new wonderful view appeared. It was really something else than my idea of Morocco before we went there.
And the possibility to visit and have lunch at a berber families home is something we will never forget! It is not possible to compare their way of life to ours, still they seemed happy in their life in the mountains. And of course the lunch was great!
