We stayed at the sister Riad Dubai in Marrakesh Kasbah District but came out on a free transfer for a day by the pool. Staff were very helpful, transfer was free and they gave us towels to use.
We set up by the pool which was a good size although inevitably there was a bit of sand on the pool floor. Sun-loungers were comfy and we had no trouble getting a couple of parasols to keep the sun at bay. Pool water looked clean enough and I got the wiff of chlorine so am assuming it was being properly maintained.
The reception area and surrounding public rooms looked clean and well maintained but I didn't see a bedroom so can't comment on those. This is not 5 star accommodation but it is so nice, so authentic and so friendly it more than makes up for the stars.
We had a lunch which was good value and well presented - again staff courteous & helpful.
It took about 25 minutes to get from our Marrakesh Riad to this one and it seemed pretty much in the middle of nowhere with not much around it. The free transfer to Marrakesh I guess allowed you to dip in and out of the city as you wanted. The shuttle seemed to be running pretty often so I wouldn't see that as a problem.
Nice to get out of the heat of the city for a while - highly recommended!
