Just arrived back from a 5day break to Marakkesh,Stayed at the Riad Al Mamoune,after reading all the good reports on here.I went with my daughter,who is 27,the Riad is ab stunning,you can not ask for a better,cleaner,place to stay.The only draw back is the walk to and from the Riad. The alleys are VERY VERY DISTURBING, and i would never stay there again, unless i was with a man! we were followed by a guy high on glue,and the last night 2 lads followed us on moped,and actually grabbed my daughter.and asked her for sex.! the alleys are very dark,I have been all over the world,and have never beeen so scared in all my life.walking back home at 10pm at night.We had to go out for food etc.... the owners kept saying its safe? but it does not feel that?. we met 3 gals from the USA who were staying there and they said the same. and to be honest it spoilt the Riad,I only chose it as some 1 put on here that a man was employed to take you back at night? well we never found any1?? only men who wanted to be paid to show us the way? or so they said???. i would go back but would stay in a hotel on the main road. The city is wonderfull,vibrant,exciting, the best meal was Cafe Agare right on the square.good food,good prices. we didnt eat on the square at the barbies.but would do if my tum wasnt sensative.lol. hated the monkeys,sooooo cruel and so wish they would ban them... we did an amazing trip,to the Atlas mountains,visted a Berber home,a coop of women making products from argane oil... BECAREFUL i got stung for £65.00 750 dirhams for a 50ml bottle of oil!!! my fault.. we had a guide meet us and take us up to see the waterfalls. very very slippery and hard if you are a bit unfit. but well worth the visit... all in all the trip was a wonderful experiance, and would recomend it to every 1 except for familys with young children.why drag them araound in thet heat??. if any 1 would like any more tips or advise please message me on here,and i will be happy to help.ps booked the day trip with the hotel and had jamal he was amazing,so kind and very patient, the cost was excellant 700 dirhams,approx £65.GBPpickes up at 9am and arrivved back at approx 5pm. very good value..
