This was our second trip to Marrakech; the first was at hotel Mamounia right after it's reopening ( Very nice hotel with an exceptionally beautiful garden but unfortunately a service which didn't stand up to expectations). For our second stay in Marrakech we chose a Riad to really get an authentic feel of the city. And I have to admit that at first I was a bit skeptical when a chauffeur sent from the Riad came to pick us up and took us through a small winding road to get there. Fortunately my reluctance and worry were counterbalanced by the beauty of the Riad and to stay there. Cyril the manager welcomed us with extreme kindness, he was very attentive and charming. The Riad itself was a magnificent place with raffined furniture and decoration. The whole was very elegant and harmonious. The owner didn't want to do (like other riads we've visited) pack the place so much to get as much profit as possible. This big riad is composed of only 5 suites, giving you the sensation that you are the landlord. Big rooms and superb decoration have been very pleasant throughout our trip. Finally after visiting the very loud souks and hectic city of Marrakech, it's nice to kick back and relax by the pool while sipping on an authentic Mint Tea. Or soak up the sun on the rooftop terasse! Thanks again to Cyril for a wonderful trip, we will return!!!
