Having visited Marrakech earlier in the year I was apprehensive that this riad may disappoint after our previous stay, which was wonderful, I should not have worried.
The riad is in a perfect position, very close to everything that you would want to visit. The rooms, although on the small side, were beautifully presented and wonderfully clean.
We were met by Hussein, the manager of the riad, who could not have been more helpful. We were given mint tea and shown around the riad. Hussein then escorted us through the myriad of alleyways, pointing out land marks on the way, to ensure we found our way back!
We ate in the riad on our first evening, the food was fresh, well presented and plentiful.traditional Morrocan cuisine and very tasty.
We were travelling with another couple and all decided to have a traditional hamman, this is an experience not to be missed. The gentlemen were led in one direction as us ladies went off in another. We were scrubbed to an inch of our lives by the very lovely lady who does the cooking in the riad. I am ashamed to say that I have forgotten her name, however will never forget the amount of effort she put in to rid me of my dead skin!!
Hussein continued to be on hand for the duration of our visit, nothing was too much trouble and everything was done with a smile.
I have bored people to death about how great our weekend was and cannot recommend this place highly enough.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Riad Princesse du Desert Nothing is too good for her. Equidistant from the " Jemaa El Fna " and " Door Dar El Bacha " , the location of Riad Princesse du Desert is exceptional especially since it offers beautiful calm and tranquility. Nestled in the Medina, the small alley that leads to the riad is a wonder with warm colors that contrast with the blue sky and vegetation that is rare in the Medina which can give the feeling of a Provence in Marrakech. Additionally beautiful decoration, attention to detail , arches , columns and moucharabiehs , lace white stucco ceilings, zellij ( tiled ) walls and featuring an alchemy of colors and smells with refined bath products (jasmine and amber ) make this a wonderful place to be . Additionally, not forgetting comfort alongside the beauty, each of the 6 rooms feature air conditioning, soft bedding and luxury linens. Breakfast is included in the price and we offer complimentary Moroccan mint tea and coffee with homemade cookies at all times. ... more less
