We decided upon this Riad because of the good trip advisor reviews it had received and it really surpassed our expectations during our four day stay. Didier was a very warm and welcoming host, spending some time with us upon our arrival and provided some useful advice about the city; he always had time for a small conversation. Hakim was very attentive and always smiling and Queen Beija is one of the most friendliest cats I have ever come across. The food prepared for us was the tatsiest we experienced during our stay, when compared to the restaurants and stalls we tried at the place Jemaa el Fna. It was always such a pleasure to be able to come back to the serenity and peacefulness of the Riad after a trip through the hustle & bustle of the the souks and kasbah. There is a lovely plunge pool to cool off in, Orange trees to relax under and enjoy a good book, living areas to escape the heat and our room had a really tall ceiling, plus good air conditioning which made the July night heat bearable. Our goal going to Marrakech was to relax, take things slow and enjoy what the red city had to offer. Riad Rafeale is a charming tranquil oasis located slap bang in the midst of the exotic and alluring chaos that is Marrakech.
