We stayed at MonRiad for a total of 6 days over the course of a two week trip around Morocco, using the Riad as a base in Marrakech.
From the moment we arrived and were picked up from the airport to the minute we finally left, MonRiad was a perfect little oasis of calm in an otherwise crazy city! The welcome we received (complete with mint tea) from Manuela, Luca and the rest of the staff was so warm, and the service at the Riad from there did not disappoint. Nothing was every too much trouble and because of them we were able to make the most of our time in the city, exploring all the main sites and bartering our way through the souks.
We returned to MonRiad after a few trips elsewhere (trek up Toubkal and trip to the desert and Merzouga), and each time we came back the greeting did not change. Manuela even checked up on whether we were OK when she was worried we hadn't returned from our mountain climbing trek!
The Riad itself is really lovely, very peaceful and a nice calm place to return after a day exploring Marrakech. It is incredibly central to all the main sites, and the rooms are really generously sized, comfortable and well decorated. Breakfast is a traditional Moroccan affair (complete with home made yoghurt), and again they are always very accommodating, with the timings changed to suit your timetable.
In short - we couldn't recommend MonRiad highly enough for anyone that wants to explore Marrakech whilst experiencing a traditional Riad. Thanks Manuela and Luca for everything!
