We visited Marrakech for a week-end to celebrate a significant birthday, and wanted to stay in a riad for a truly Moroccan experience. Riad Catalina ticked all the boxes for us. From the moment we stepped from the narrow alleys of the medina through that sturdy door into the beautiful courtyard, we were enchanted. The interior was peaceful and leafy, full of birdsong by day and lit by lanterns at night. We have happy memories of tiled floors and walls, a marble fountain centrepiece, orange and fig trees, doves and tortoises, and a very friendly atmosphere. Our room was comfortable and quiet with traditional charm. The city beyond those sheltering pink walls was as weird and wonderful as expected. We enjoyed Jemaa el-Fna by day and night, bartered in the souks, and just wandered around hither and thither to relish all the unfamiliar scents, sights and sounds. Then we returned to nearby Riad Catalina to relax in very pretty surroundings and eat delicious home cooked food away from the melée. Highly recommended.
