My husband and I traveled Morocco for two weeks this spring and were very fortunate to end our stay at Riad Princesse in Marrakech. The Riad is beautifully restored and lovely to return to after a day experiencing Marrakech. Our stay was most amazing because of the staff at the Riad. Youssef could not have been more accommodating. Not only did he exceed all of our expectations and needs, he anticipated them. His attention to detail made our stay pleasant and comfortable in spite of inclement weather. As other reviewers have written, the food is fabulous. Also, you must take the cooking class with Nada and Khadijah! Being a well rounded cook of many ethnic cuisines I didn't think I would gain much from the class but I was so wrong! They used local spice in creative ways and took all evening explaining all of it to us. The next day Youssef purchased the spices we wanted to take home, better than anything we can buy at home at a fraction of the price. Our dinner was amazing. We made the best aubergine salad I've ever had in my life!
- 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
