These folk have it figured out. A gorgeous space, friendly, efficient staff, amazing food, and a seamless ability to coordinate everything and anything you may wish to do or see in Marrakech or further afield.
Marrakech is a bit of a seeming chaotic mess, and Riad Al Massarah is the perfect haven to retreat to. Once through the door the hum of the city seems miles away. The analogy my brain kept returning to is of ziplining: you start off at a safe place, then launch yourself over the abyss which is at once terrifying and exhilarating, speeding your way across, then suddenly you find yourself back on your own two feet on solid ground. Al Massarah was definitely that safe platform (especially for the first day or so), and Marrakech is that adrenaline-inducing thrill ride.
The food was consistently amazing, and we're so glad we arranged to do the cooking course with Chef Adbelwahed. The meals we had were some of the best we had anywhere in Morocco. Foodies take note!
I noticed some other reviews docked points for location, but for us it was ideal. Positioned at equal distance to both the heart of the medina, as well as to the Nouvelle Ville.
Without a doubt in my mind we will be returning to both Marrakech, and more specifically to Al Massarah!
