We stayed five nights at this luxury riad, and we were glad we devoted the most time to this hotel and Marrakesh (out of 10 days total in Morocco).
The two buildings that make up the riad are incredible. The ceiling in our room (Safi) rivals the ones we saw at Dar Si Said. Our children’s room (Safari) had a huge picture of Teddy Roosevelt and was totally different from our room, but also beautiful. We took pictures of the lighting fixtures throughout the hotel, because each one was more gorgeous than the next.
As much as we loved breakfast on the roof and the little salons you can curl up in front of a fire, it was the staff who made our visit so special. Each morning Pierre, the general manager, would check in with us over breakfast to make sure we knew where we were going, how to get there, and he helped us make all our reservations. He encouraged us to go with our three teenagers to Imlil and Kasbah du Toubkal, which was a total hit.
The concierge arranged for an excellent car and driver for the first five days of our trip, and we all loved the chef and her assistant, especially after spending the morning with them in a cooking class. The location is great — very close to great shopping and the famous square, Djemaa el-Fna — but not so close that you’re hearing the noise.
