We've just stayed 3 nights at the Riad and had the most fabulous time!
The Riad itself is an absolute gem and has been totally refurbished from top to bottom with exquisite taste mixing boutique style with Moroccan touches. All the different bedrooms have their own personality and the common spaces - be it in the patio or the roof terrace make you want to stay in the Riad rather than face the hustle & bustle of the souk.
In terms of service, I have to say top notch and genuinely one of the best service I’ve had in a long time! Marie & Francois (the owner’s parents) were fabulous – welcoming us warmly on arrival with a traditional mint tea, giving us great tips & drawing maps so we wouldn’t get lost in the labyrinth of the Medina, helping us book restaurants and taxis so that we didn’t worry about a thing. I can’t speak more highly of them as they were both present when we needed help & advice but also very discreet which meant that we had a great romantic break without having the feeling that there was always someone around which for me is the perfect combination!
The rooms are all fantastic! When we arrived all the rooms were empty so Francois and Marie took us for a little tour and I have to say that all the rooms are stunning and all have their unique individual style & design which adds to the quirkiness of the Riad.
The roof terrace & outdoor Jacuzzi are pure heaven and we loved having breakfast in the sunshine overlooking all the roofs of Marrakesh.
We’ve even experienced the new spa which they have recently built and had a couple’s hamman and massage. Again, couldn’t fault a thing – my skin was so soft after the hamman and the massage was probably one of the best I’ve had!
I would have loved to stay longer and fully intend to come back!
Marie, Francois, Greg and everyone at the Riad – thank you ever so much for your kindness and for looking after us so well. You’ve truly made our holiday special!
