I had read the glowIng reports about the Riad & I must admit it even surpassed my expectations. This is an enchanting Riad,artistically decorated with elegance,& impeccable attention to details.A happy marriage of Marrakchi Art & design. The soft lighting& soothing music throughout create an an ambiance of tranquility which is so welcoming after the Mayhem of the Medina. we were upgraded to the Secret Room which is vast & dazzling,split into several levels,very refined& scattered with fascinating finds. All the rooms are superb & very different. The food prepared by Touria is delicious & is served on the stunning terrace for indolent breakfasts(you must try the mouthwatering pain perdu)with a 360degree panoramic view over the Medina & its minarets& the Atlas Mountains,savouring the succulent monkfish tajine under the bewitching lantern lit Bedouin tent with the haunting sound of the Muezzing echoing in the Medina.To top it all is the warm,generous hospitality of Jean who made it a memorable& magical stay.he is also very professional & a real perfectionist as well as very artistic.Nadia & Touria are adorable & Abdu a real treasure with his incredible knowledge,linguistic skills& kindness. Merci encore Jean& a bientot Inch'Allah!xxxMonic & Bill.
