Everything at the Green Mango is top quality, right down to the light fittings and straw hats by the loungers. Olivier, Sebastian and staff are always available, and always willing to provide information or a cup of tea. Particular mention for the night porter who is a true gentleman. Sebastian also has some great recommendations on restaurants and clubs to visit, that didn't appear on any "10 things to do in Marrakesh" lists.
The room was nice, clean and spacious, and surprisingly dark in the mornings, enabling us to sleep in. The rooftop is really relaxing and peaceful, with a beautiful shaded area, sun lounges and a jacuzzi that was a blessing after a day walking the streets-as Shakira says, the hips don't lie. The Riad has very few rooms which meant we practically had this area to ourselves. A fantastic breakfast is available any time of day - the quality of which was really brought home (no pun intended), when staying at an Irish hotel the night we returned.
The Riad is well located, with three main routes off it that will take you pretty much everywhere. A few reviews of other Riads mentioned safety so for the record, the area was very safe, getting to know a few of the local lads while we where there. A taxi service is provided from the airport, so probably worth taking advantage of this, until you have got a feel for the area..
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Riad Green Mango is one of the most recommended riads in Marrakech; well situated in the centre of the Medina close to the souks and the principal historical monuments and only a 10 minutes on foot from the Jamaa el Fena square. Sebastien and Sarah master the art of hosting with so much refinement. Their Riad, located in the Antiques district, offers a great feeling of calm and well-being. ... more less
