What a wonderful place to stay and amazing value. An oasis of beauty and calm in the centre of the medina. We were a group of nine and had this gorgeous Riad to ourselves. We all agreed that our holiday of four nights would not have been so enjoyable were it not for the warmth of the welcome, kindness, useful information and amazing hospitality under the management of our hosts..British born Allan and his delightful French wife and her sister. We were told to treat our surroundings as home and it could not have been a more comfortable one! We were greeted with smiles by all the helpful staff and absolutely nothing was too much trouble. At our request Allan had arranged a pick up from the airport as well as the return arrangements and so from the moment of our arrival everything went smoothly. He also organised a gala evening for us complete with musicians and dancer. It was amazing. We ate at the Riad, where the food (especially the breakfasts where freshly squeezed orange juice, homemade yoghurt and melt in the mouth pancakes were a highlight) was truly delicious, but also dined at a local restaurant recommended by Allan which was superb. A terrific day was also spent in the Atlas mountains, again organised by Allan. Our spotlessly clean rooms and lovely bathrooms were beautifully furnished. We ate a superb "light" lunch one day under the tent on the roof terrace, which provided a tranquil place to relax after the hustle and bustle of the souks. Our whole experience made our first visit to Marakech unforgettable for all the right reasons. We were sad to leave and will no doubt return.
