This review is a bit overdue, as we stayed at this amazing Riad back in November 2010. It was still rather new then, but judging from all the positive reviews since then it looks like Laurent, Ahmed, and the rest of the team are still hard at work making travellers' holidays an amazing experience.
Laurent was the perfect host, and personally sat down with each arriving group for as long as they needed, to explain more about the wonderful city of Marrakech.
Ahmed is an excellent organiser, and was able to help us book restaurants, hamams (follow his recommendation), and hot air ballooning with no issues.
As other reviewers have said, it was a relief to have a home where we could escape to when the sensory overload that is Marrakech gets all too much. A cup of mint tea, feet dangling in the cool indoor pool, and a book was the perfect pick-me-up.
Try the dinner at least once, it was one of the best meals we had in Marrakech (and we visited the supposedly top two restaurants in the city).
Be aware that the Riad is set back from the main road (such as it is) so may be tricky to find upon first arrival, but you will quickly get used to it. Although it isn't on the main road, it is still perfectly safe to get in and out (there was a single female traveller staying with us and she reported no issues).
Great location too as its easily walking distance to most places you will want to go.
More like being a guest in a home than a hotel, very highly recommended.
