Staying as a young couple in Marreakech we had booked the cheapest room in this lovely Riad. When we arrived at 1am we were warmly greeted by Stefan and Jarwad. After staying in the Les Therieres room, we were told the next morning we could upgrade to Le Petit Patio and then to Le Hammam room (the best room in the Riad) for free!! All of the rooms were spacious, welcoming and authentically decorated in a Moroccan style. The breakfast was lovely, and it was made sure that we always had enough of everything (pancakes, fresh fruit, omelettes, fresh orange juice and usually a little bit of cake on the side).
We had the option to have dinner in the Riad one night - 3 courses and they accommodated to my pesceterian needs, again with lovely authentic Moroccan dishes. Served up on the roof terrace we were left to our own devices, Stefan and Jarwad only coming up at small intervals. It was so romantic and so well executed.
In terms of tourist advice, Stefan was always around and always willing to help. He was able to recommend good bars, restaurants and a spa for us to visit and was quick to fill us in on any cultural tips. Marrekech is a very friendly place, please don't be fooled by what others tell you.
Location was great, near the square and lovely restaurants but secluded enough to allow relaxation during the day on the roof terrace. Price is excellent, you get much more than you pay for - Stefan and Jarwad couldn't be nicer hosts. We felt like it was our little home. Roof terrace, a little pool to take a dip in to cool off, a lounge and all beautifully decorated.
I can honestly say this was one of the loveliest holidays Ive had, and staying at this Riad was a big part of it!
