The riad is charming as everyone says but the best bit was the family who made our stay, and I am sure everybody else's stay, delightful. Nothing was too much trouble and all done with a feeling of genuine caring and friendship. The helpfulness does not stop at the door either so there is no need to get lost in the souks if you don't want to( although it is part of what Marrekesh is about).
We did a lot of walking to the various sights and restaurants etc. and a lot of reading on the roof terrace( where when discovered were usually plied with tea/coffee cake soup etc. even when we hadn't asked). We were there for 11 days which I think for most people would be too long unless you go on a couple of trips outside the city but we were made to feel so welcome for the whole of our stay that leaving seemed to come too soon.
- 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
