We have just come back from a week in Marrakech at the Riad Maison Arabo Andalouse.
We chose the Riad on the strength of the reviews on Trip Advisor and we weren't disappointed.
We arranged an airport transfer with GPaolo, which was great and Mohamed met us to show us the final walk to the Riad.
Despite being close to all the bustle, the Riad is in a very quiet street and once inside it is totally calm, and beautiful.
Mohamed is an absolute diamond. He was so helpful and knowledgeable, and nothing was too much trouble. Zahra and Fatima were also great, and made us feel completely at home.
We ate at the Riad one night, and it was the best meal we had in Marrakech. The Tagine of lamb, prunes and almonds was so fresh and tasty.
Our room, no. 7, was lovely - and we loved just lying in bed looking at the amazing structure of the ceiling.
The weather was not that kind to us, being wet and chilly especially at night, but the heating in the room and bathroom were completely adequate and we were never cold.
Although we didn't have much opportunity to use the roof terrace, the views of the storks and across the rooftops was stunning, and when the sun did appear it was a proper suntrap.
All the places we visited on Mohamed's recommendations were superb, and I would recommend the excursion to the Mountains and also the superb Hammam, not far from the Riad.
We were the only guests staying for the majority of the week, so we had the opportunity to view all the rooms, and they were all lovely - which ever room you get you won't be disappointed.
We will definitely return both to Marrakech, which we loved, and certainly to the Maison Arabo Andalouse.
