My boyfriend and I flew into Agadir and worked our way north to Fes Via Marrakech…. Total trip of beach, beauty, shopping and culture.
We did the trash beach/hotel thing in Agadir on the beach and then spoilt ourselves rotten at Riad Tizwa in Marrakech and Fes.
The Marrakech hotel was the most laid back place we have been for years and really just so simple. The food was just lovely with the best breakfasts we every had. The best fruit salad ever (with a lovely twist). Beds comfortable and big (we stayed in room 3), terrace beautiful and the food very good. But it was the little things that made the difference: sort a good place to eat, done; hammam and masseur, done; The manager Mohammed and my boyfriend got on so well where he even took us to meet his family in the hills outside Marrakech.
Also they pretty good on the environmental side as we are interested in green issues. We also took their hand made soap from the natural herbalist from outside of Marrakech up to fes for them - but maybe time for solar panels?
The brothers who own the place were easy to deal with online when booking and just relaxed when we got there. Richard was there when we got there and I think that was a real bonus. He told us the history of the riad and really gave us a sense of morocco.
We thought this place was perfect to relax given the upsidedown madness of the souk.
