The best part of the riad was the lovely and spacious roof terrace. A kitten and it's mother were living up in the terrace providing us with the only source of entertainment available within the riad. To be honest there was absolutely nothing to do so I would recommend staying out for as long as you possibly can, however this is unbelievably easy as there is so much to see in the nearby Jemal D Fna etc.
I hated coming back to the riad late at night which felt like coming home to your mum as you had to ring the door bell and was a bit too intimate!
The beds weren't very comfortable and I think the bed linen needs to be updated!
The staff were lovely and very friendly, providing us with loads of information, maps etc.
I would recommend Riad Des Olivers to couples, not families. Location is a major factor, very central and yet not loud at all.
In my opinion it felt in a way that you were staying in the slums of Marrakesh, unlike when visiting them in other places, I was staying in them. This is definitely why 2 nights is enough! We spent the third night in a hotel with a swimming pool which was more like having a holiday! The riad made me realize that when on holiday, I like having more luxury than I have at home. This is my view... I recommend trying the riad for yourself to see what you think!!!
