My husband and I stayed at this fantastic Riad for 4 nights from 24 - 28 September 2012. Our first time in Marrakesh so we were not sure what to expect but it was a beautiful haven of peace excelling all our expectations.The airport taxi arranged by Nadia & Chloe (owners of the Riad) dropped us in the Medina where we were met by Said accompanied by a lad with a barrow to transport our suitcases. Said led us through the alley ways to the Riad where we were welcomed by Nadia with mint tea. She gave us a most useful map, pointed out the places of interest and assured us that Said would accompany us to help us get our bearings and show us the way to Jemaa El Fna square. This, plus the fact that he gave us a card with his telephone number printed on it should we get lost, gave us the confidence to explore this fascinating old city. Our en-suite room decorated in Moroccan style was most comfortable. The Riad has a lovely plunge pool and a beautiful roof terrace. Said and Adil (who call themselves "Mr. Day" & "Mr. Night") couldn't do enough for us. They also made bookings for us at restaurants, Nothing was too much trouble for them. The food in the Riad was delicious and wine was also available. When my husband went down with "traveller's tummy" the cook made him a special soup to help with his digestion! This is a wonderful place to stay, comfortable, and a haven of peace in the busy old city. But what makes it so special is Nadia & Chloe and their staff who truly excelled in caring for us. If you want an authentic Moroccan experience do stay with them if you are going to Marrakesh!
