We stayed for 3 nights on our honeymoon at the end of August. The Ryad organised a shuttle service to collect us (which is essential if it is your first time there as it is not easy to find). When we arrived after a very long, hot journey, we reached heaven... We could smell dinner waiting for us and saw a table waiting for us by the pool - it was one of the best meals we had during our entire 7 night stay in Marrakech / Essaouira. You'll pay European prices for the food and wine in the Ryad but it's well worth it.
Staff were really friendly and accommodating to our needs. I am coeliac and each morning was given fruit, yoghurt and omlettes which were delicious. Staff were always on hand to help or make us lovely food, snacks or cocktails! Their spoken English is very good but prepare yourselves with a little French beforehand just to make sure you are understood.
All in all, we had a wonderful time at Bellamane Ryad and spent hours lounging on the many different terraces and admiring the view from the roof. Bliss. Highly recommended.
