There are so many riads to choose from in Marrakech, it can be overwhelming. Rest assured, Al Massarah doesn't disappoint. From the moment we arrived the service was excellent - staff met us at the taxi and showed us the way there, through a couple of side streets off a small but bustling market. We ate a delicious dinner there on the first night in the dining room next to the serene courtyard. There is a small pool to cool off in, a library room and a great roof terrace for sunbathing. Our room was small very charming, with a massive bathroom and shutters that blocked out all the light, great for a good night's sleep! It's in a great location, 10 minute walk from the main souqs and 15-20 to the main square. All the staff are very helpful and will go above and beyond to assist you; my girlfriend was ill on the first day and they were very attentive. Couldn't recommend it enough for a first time in Marrakech.
