What a surprise when we walked through the Riads big black doors into a beautiful garden oasis. We were welcomed by Cyril with mint tea and delicious little cakes after our flight from Manchester and Gatwick. Cyril was a lovely french man, who very kindly went with out of his way to show my husband and I how to get to the nice restaurants and the Souk. Which is very helpful when, like us you have never been to Marrakech before. It can be quite daunting, but we had no need to worry as we felt so very safe. Even at night coming back from the restaurants down the little ally ways, and you very soon get to find your way around.
We would certainly go back and stay at Riad Samarkand, it was a little bit of heaven in all the chaos of Marrakech.
Patrick the owner of the Riad most helpful and charming, and we feel, we have made a new friend for life in him. What a very interesting man he is.
Try dinner there, at least one evening. It was delicious.
The only thing we regret, is not visiting Marrakech in warmer months as it was cold ,and we would of liked to of enjoyed the lovely garden and outside areas at the Riad.
It's an experience we wouldn't of missed for the world, and we hope to go back one day.
If you like a drink stock up at dutyfree.
