Two couples stayed here for one night - the next day we were flying home. We would have been very happy to spend more days here. It has an uninviting entrance at the end of a dusty narrow passage - and then you are ushered in to a wonderful open space with garden pond, pool etc. One of the largest spaces in a riad in Marrakech. We had a pool room (next to the pool) and the blue room - upstairs overlooking the garden and pool. The latter was an upgrade. The owner - Charles - speaks good English and is very welcoming. We had complimentary tea and home made biscuits on arrival. There are no keys to the rooms as it is very safe inside. The outside walls of terraces etc are lovely colours and in good repair. There is a great view over the rooftops from the top terrace.The rooms are well appointed. The water pressure in the pool room was poor and the water flow stopped - but Charles soon had it fixed for us.
It was our last night in Morocco so we decided to eat in the Riad - Wine £26 a bottle and meal for 4 was £170.Perhaps pricey but it was wonderful. We ate next to the pool and had wonderful starters of Moroccan salad - some hot and some cold eg aubergine and tomato, A number of these on dishes - bit like a tapas.
There is free Wi-Fi. Plenty of seating areas on all floors and lovely cool lounge to sit in whilst temperatures climbed to 40. Breakfast is typical - pancakes, yoghurt, orange juice, bread and jam.
We didn't have to leave our rooms until 2.00pm on our departure day and then we could sit in the lounge until taxi came. Charles and the staff were all very attentive. I highly recommend Riad el Arsat.
