5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2010

Our stay at this riad was superb! The photos on the website almost don't do justice to the reality of the tranquillity of the building, the amazing bedrooms and bathrooms and the sun terrace. The staff were very helpful and willing to offer advice on excursions as well as arrange them for us; they were also happy to put drinks in the fridge to chill them for us (tonic water and champagne). Breakfast is served on the terrace or the ground floor by the plunge pool (not in the room as it states on the website) - both of which are lovely.The air conditioning was very effective and most welcome. The riad is also very easy to locate, not down too many tiny streets and so there was no anxiety about getting lost. The main square is 10 minutes walk away, we arrived at the riad at 8pm and by 9:00pm we were eating brochettes in the square - a great strat to the holiday! We went to the Atlas Mountains and out to Essouria - both a contrast to the city of Marrakech. It is possible to go to and from Essouria for the day (quite a lot of the guidebooks imply its too far but it isn't) we left at 8:30am and arrived at 11am - we had lunch, walked right along the beach, wandered around the medina and ate an evening meal, arriving back at the riad at 8:45pm - a wonderful day!
The final bill was in morrocan dirhams and it was a little confusing intially to relate this to the deposit which was paid in euros (take a calculator and then you can check its accuracy for yourself) and the website which quotes prices in sterling.
We would not hesitate to return!
