Me and my husband have just come back a week ago after spending a week in the Riad.
It was an absolutely brilliant experience in Marrakech which was topped off perfectly coming back to the beautiful Riad with smiley faces!
We arranged transfers beforehand (we paid a little more but didn't mind as the last thing I wanted to do was haggle for a taxi after just getting there).
Patricia (owner) had arranged for her son Piers to meet us at the taxi drop off point and take us back to the Riad.
The Riad is situated within alleys as are most others but is not difficult to find at all. As soon as you remember where the key buildings are you will be fine. For us it was the Bab Doukalla Mosque. It is located very closely to souks/The square etc.
We were greeted by Patricia, Abdou and Fatima who all made us feel at home.
We had arranged a meal at the Riad on our first night which was lovely and well presented.
Our room was situated on the ground floor. Yes you can hear other guests but it wasn't as bad as i thought it would be at all. The room itself was spotless and a very good size. The room was cleaned daily and there no doubts in my mind at all on leaving the door unlocked the whole day.
Breakfast was delicious and different every morning. We would have ours on the terrace and the table would be set for us and nothing was any trouble at all.
Excursions can be booked with Patricia as can Hammam/pedicures etc in their own Hammam at the Riad.
We booked an excursion to Ourika Valley which was amazing.
All we can say about this Riad is that it was as though we were staying with family :-)
We are already planning our next Marrakech trip and already know where we will be staying!
So thank you Paticia, Abdou, Fatima and Piers for making us feel so welcome and being so helpful.
Rukya and Muhammad :-)
