We had a family vacation in Marrakech: my wife, our 3-year-old daughter, and me. Marrakech was an amazing city, but just the wonderful experience at the Riad ANJAR was worth the trip!
First, the service was top notch. We were met at the airport and were treated with special care from the moment we left customs to the time our vacation ended. We felt like the riad was our home, while at the same time were treated to never ending wonderful service. I can't say enough nice things about the manager, Nour-Eddine, who made our stay special (taking us on a tour of the medina, helping with suggestions for traveling Marrakech with a toddler, always greeting us with a smile). The owner, Zahra, was warm, friendly, and ensured all our needs were met. It was really a perfect vacation with our daughter, though it would have been an equally wonderful trip for just my wife and I.
I recommend bringing a big appetite. We ended up eating dinner at the Riad twice because the food was so good. The breakfast each morning was a great start of each day.
-Very convenient location - a few minutes from the souk, very safe and quiet neighborhood. The Marrakech streets are confusing and I am not great with directions, but Nour-Eddine gave us a few landmarks and we never had any issues with getting lost! No problems.
-Our room, Ajat, was the perfect size, immaculately clean, with a spa-like bathroom.
-Zahra arranged a day trip to the Atlas Mountains. I would highly recommend it if your schedule allows. Nice break from the city. We had a perfect, kid-friendly, hike/mule ride.
-No problems communicating if you don't speak French
