This was our first trip to Marrakech and the staff, service and surroundings of Riad 72 truly made it such a special trip. We can't emphasise enough just how beautiful and tranquil Riad 72 is, an oasis of calm against the hustle an bustle of such a vibrant city.
The rooms are fabulous, each with there own unique features, from a bath that you could fit a group in to an elegant mezzanine suite. We slept like babies in our huge bed surrounded by fluffy pillows, lulled to sleep by the rustle of banana palms and song's of birds outside in the courtyard.
We chose to eat our first breakfast on the roof and what a delight it was, an array of pastries, fruit, breads and homemade preserves served with our choice of fresh orange juice and mint tea; all whilst we gazed over the views of the city with the Atlas mountains off in the distance.
We ate at the Riad for two of our three nights in the city as the food was so delicious, Fatima and the entire team really do go above and beyond and made each meal a delight.
We really can't thank Christian and his team at Riad 72 enough. We can't wait to return to Marrakech and especially to the warmth and tranquility of Riad 72.
