My husband and I have just this minute returned from our stay at the Riad Dubai, in fact we are Gatwick waiting for a train.. What better thing to do while waiting than to rate our holiday.
We were met at the airport by the Riads driver and had a swift 15 minute drive to the Riad. We were met by Housni who took us to the riad and welcomed us with mint tea and morrocan sweets whilst pointing out the do's and donts of marrakech. Our room was very clean, very quiet and relaxing after the madness of the city. Our first night was spent in the square..with a warning from Housni not to be back too late... Which made me feel a little uneasy!!! Upon our return to the riad at 9pm.. We were greeted by a beautiful handmade birthday cake complete with candle and a serenade of happy birthday in Arabic!!! (The trip was my 40th birthday present!) ... Hence the " don't be back too late!!"
We spent our 3 days in marrakech exploring the city, the stories of hassle seem to be exaggerated..although you do get a bit of hassle but its easy to just smile, laugh it off and walk away. That way everyone's happy.. I'd recommend a few days in marrakech to anyone, but I'd recommend the Riad Dubai to everyone.
You must try the snails on the square... Not as bad as you'd think. The cinnamon tea sold by the Berbers is also worth a go.
