A Little Piece of Heaven…
One can only love Marrakech through the arms of Riad Al Massarah. It is the peace in the storm. After meandering largest traditional Berber market in Morocco (the souk), strolling through the orange-scented gardens, exploring the palaces and museums, and ending your day experiencing wonders of Jemaa el-Fnaa--- you need a place to call home. Riad al Massarah is the reason I return to Marrakech year after year.
Mike and Michel, the owners, are eager to hear about your adventures and help you make plans/reservations for the following day. The rooms are expertly decorated and you are made to feel that you are the only guest in the house. I have visited the Riad many times. I have taken friends and rented the whole Riad, traveled with a friend or two, and now plan to return by myself. I feel safe and pampered. I know that at a day’s end, as I drag my weary soul to the Riad, that David, the night host, is going to open the door and welcome me home.
The food is to die for! I look forward to the first morning walking out to the small terrace or roof top garden and eating a delicious fresh cooked breakfast and huge bowls of coffee. It is heaven, I tell ya! My suggestion, if you are new to Marrakech and arrive on an early flight from Europe, is to have Michael or Michel have lunch prepared for you shortly after you tour the Riad. You will be tired from your early journey and very hungry. You do not want to hit the streets of Marrakech aimlessly looking for food. Unpack, eat lunch, and let Michael and Michel ease you into Marrakech with maps in hand.
Two great hosts in one phenomenal Riad.
Honestly, each room is fantastic. Fireplaces for chilly nights, billowing curtains on the doors and...
