A travellers dream, is to discover and experience staying at Riad Helen. We were met at the airport by Damian (owner) and Mario (one of the managers) and from this point our wonderful experience started. The Riad is in an area where one can feel the true Marrakech and be in walking distance of the main square and souks. Mario and Maxime were truly fabulous hosts and nothing was too much trouble for them - such kindness is hard to find. They guided us through the souks, took us on a trip to the mountains, prepared coffee and tea at any time for us with something to nibble, and were always there for help and advice, and what they did not perhaps know, would find out. The list of their many kindnesses is acually too long to mention here. Many a laugh was had as well.
The Riad itself is lovely and we felt comfortable from the moment we stepped in.
Fatiha cooked the most wonderful traditional dishes for us, and also gave us an option to say what we would like to eat. Her wonderful meals will always be remembered. Fatiha extended many kindnesses as well.
We can highly recommended staying at Riad Helen which is made so very special by Mario, Maxime and Fatiha.
