With only 5 rooms available, we were the only couple there for the first night and we were greeted with the night care taker Abdul who then served us Moroccan mint tea and sugar biscuits!
The riad is very quiet and a little confusing to find as we arrived at night. After the second night, coming back to the riad is a breeze.
The room was clean and we got a room with a toilet with bath tub and also a dome filled with colored glass stars above the toilet. It was relaxing and enjoyable to be in the toilet. I can't believe I said that but really it was enjoyable to be in the toilet!
The riad serves dinner and breakfast costing about 10 euros per person and it will be cooked on site by Khatijah however you need to inform the care taker in advance. The food was authentic and filling beyond imaginable.
Deco within the riad is beautiful yet simple. They even have a dipping pool for summer and a terrace to relax on. There a guide book available scattered within the riad and a fair amount of english books for the book worms.
Do ask the care takers for advise before stepping out of the riad as you may feel harassed by the local teenagers outside the riad and the whole of Marrakech.
