This is the second time we have stayed at the Jardins de la Medina and loved it. As soon as we arrived we were made to feel very welcomed. Our room (Described in their brochure as “Superior”) was comfortable, air-conditioned, had a seating area and a French door that opened onto a small patio.
Everyone was always very helpful and friendly and spoke French and English. Without exception whether they were looking after us at reception, porters, housekeepers or waiters they were always friendly, attentive and informative. We often spoke with Youssef, Hakim and Amin who were exemplars of excellent service in reception but it would be unfair to single out anyone more than another.
Food was always excellent with a very good choice of fare for the outdoor buffet breakfast and a delicious evening menu that was well prepared and presented. It’s a good place to chill out in the heat of the day with a pool forming the central feature of the Riad. Plants and trees provide ample shade and there is a spacious sun deck on the roof for sun worshipers.
The Jardins de la Medina is very well located and although the narrow streets of the Kasbah and Medina are fascinating in themselves you will want to venture further into the city. The Riad is within easy and safe walking distance of the main attractions of Marrakesh e.g. 10 minutes to the Saadian Tombs; 15 minutes to the Badi Palace; 25 minutes at a steady pace to the Koutoubia Mosque, the famous Jemaa El Fna and the adjoining souks. The Majorelle Gardens are best reached by Petit Taxi and you’ll find no shortage of them just about everywhere but agree the price before setting off e.g. a one way journey to The Majorelle Gardens will set you back about 40 Dirhams (approx. £3.20).
The Jardins de la Medina enabled us to take on Marrakesh at its own crazy pace and when we’d had enough we could just walk through the big door of the riad and relax within its cool calm interior. I’m confident that this riad will always be our choice when staying in Marrakesh, Insha’Alah.
