Getting to Marrakech for us was not an easy affair as there are no direct flights from Poland. In the end we have decided to visit Agadir on a package holiday with a direct flight and then take a taxi to Marrakech. Riad Cinnamon staff was very helpful and arranged taxi pick up for us both ways which was convenient and assuring that we had a reliable service. The journey took about 2.5hrs door to door, as there is a newly build motorway linking Agadir with Marrakech. It was a very pictures trip across the desert and mountainous terrain.
Finding your way around Medina for a new comer is a challenge so to our relief we were met at the taxi drop off point by a Riad Cinnamon manager and he guided us thru the narrow alleyways to our accommodation. If this was not for that, we would be still most likely wandering around the maze of Madina today!
On arrival we were greeted by a friendly staff of Riad Cinnamon. The place proved to be an oasis of peace and tranquility for our entire stay. The location and proximity of our accommodation proved to be a real asset as it was very easy to nip off for a short stroll around Medina and return have a rest when the busy life of the Red City proved too much for us. Riad Cinnamon is next door to Marrakech Museum and Ben Youseff Madrasa – only 5 mins away walking distains – all key must see tourist attraction of the city.
We have not used the mobile pre-paid phones provide to us by riad staff and opted out to use our own roaming mobile phones. This was a big mistake as roaming charges outside EU are still very high and on upon our return home we were faced with a mobile phone bill tripled. Not to mention mobile handset lost!
First night we were treated to a complimentary dinner and the lamb tagine was the best meal we had during our entire stay in Morocco.
Riad Cinnamon has been restored using traditional craftsmanship methods and no expense was spared to achieve authentic atmosphere on every level of detail. It felt like being at home away from home. Highly recommended!
