As we were staying in Riad Shemsi for a week we decided to book the Chocolate Suite and we did not regret it. The room was spacious with a comfortable bed. The large shower room had lovely toiletries and bath robes.
Breakfast is very nice with delicious homemade yogurt but there was no variety. We had two lovely evening meals in the Riad and another in Les Jardins de Medina very close by. (booked by the Riad)
It takes more than 15 minutes to walk to Jmaa El Fna through the hustle and bustle of the very busy Marrakech streets. It was hotter than we expected so the air conditioning in our room was most welcome on a few occasions.
The Riad booked the trip to the Atlas Mountains for us. It is expensive but we really enjoyed it. We walked for two hours with a local guide and learned a great deal about the Berber way of life. To take advantage of this you do need to be able to walk on steep, rocky ground.
Riad Shemsi is a lovely place to come back to after a hectic, hot day. All the staff were friendly, welcoming and helpful and I became addicted to the wonderful sweet mint tea. We loved the place!
