It is Saturday 12 October, 1 pm, and we are in Marrakech as I write having been in Morocco for a week. Whilst in the city we have had the pleasure of being welcomed with open arms at Riads Maison Arrabe and Kniza, both stunning in every aspect. We are keen to come back to Marrakech sooner rather than later and decided to pop over to La Mamounia to have coffee and cake, we'd heard about the patisserie milhojas and wanted to try it, as well as making a reservation for our next trip as we like to try different places. At the entrance we were refused entry because we wearing shorts!!!! Hotel La Mamounia is way down the list of hotels on Trip Advisor, hovering somewhere around #144. The Riads we frequented are in the top ten. It's obvious why. I will never stay at La Mamounia now, there is no point going somewhere where you not welcome. If you are ever in Marrakech stay at Riad Kniza. It is exquisite. It is where I will be returning.
