Our first trip to Morocco and Marrakech was made entirely memorable by the superb reception and service provided by Villa Makassar. A Riad in the Medina with 10 rooms all of which are presented in genuine art deco style, as is the whole Riad. Everywhere you look you see pieces and furniture from that period. We stayed in the Leleu room (a great upgrade) with the furniture all from the designs of Jules Leleu. The room was a picture as we arrived and Juliette who showed us round the whole Riad made clear that this was to be treated as our home for the next 6 nights. And that is the beauty of this hotel - you feel like you are at home with staff, whilst there when you need them, not pressing you, always smiling and polite but also friendly.
The freedom to come and go as you please around the Riad, making use of all the wonderful facilities such as the peaceful roof terrace or the cooling pool. The Spa facilities were excellent and the massages that we both enjoyed were of the highest standard.
We ate dinner twice during our stay and on both occasions were treated to home cooked traditional Moroccan food which was delicious.
Never having been to Marrakech we found the advice of the staff and the manager really helpful when planning our days and our situation in the Medina meant that we were never far from the sites of interest and the hustle and bustle that typifies Marrakech.
We travel frequently and like to vary our destinations but we have promised ourselves that we shall be returning to Marrakech next year and Villa Makassar. Perfect Riad, perfect staff and perfect situation.
