Three of my friends and I stayed in 2 rooms at Riad Samarkand for 4 nights. The riad is beautiful and well cared for and the rooftop terrace was very pleasant. The best dinners we had in Marrakech were at the riad and the breakfasts were delicious and LARGE. We were served wine and appetizers on the roof whenever we requested it. Pierre was very helpful arranging an excellent guide (Mustafa) , dinner reservations and making suggestions about things we should see and do. I loved staying there!
