We stayed at Dar Les Cigognes for two nights in early August and really wished we could have stayed more. On our arrival at the stunningly beautiful riad, we were greeted by Pierre and his lovely staff who couldn't have been friendlier or more enthusiastic. Our early flight had got us to the hotel at breakfast-time but our room was ready for us which was wonderful and meant we could get on with our day.
Before showing us to our room though, Pierre took the time over tea and homemade sweet treats (delicious) to tell us all about the riad and the services it offered (the Hammam is amazing and well priced for a bit of luxury) as well as Marrakech itself. He helped us design the perfect plan for a couple of days in the city based around what we wanted to do and what he knew would work best - so incredibly helpful and helped us make the most of the time we had. He's also just such a fun character to chat to!
The riad and the rooms themselves are beautiful, filled with nice touches such as beautifully presented hommade potions and lotions in the bathroom and fresh fruit to snack on. Breakfast was delicious - go hungry as it's a feast that will last you the day - and served on the flowery and peaceful roof terrace.
Can't recommend it enough and will be back no doubt! Thank you all at Dar Les Cigognes!
Hywel and Lani.
