On arriving in Marrakech you are at once caught up in the husle and bustle of this busy city. Mixes the old with the new very well. Lots of large hotels but for us to escape from the souk and walk down intricate alleyways to the heart of Marrakech and so to the Riad Ilayka. A small black highly polished door greets you and when you knock you walk in to utter peace and tranquility. There is a central courtyard and at its centre the traditional water fountain. The greeting is warm and friendly and Mohammed brings guests mint tea and pastries. Then to our rooms. They are all different but beautifully furnished to a very high satndard. Some are on the ground floor while others are on the next level. If you want to explore to the highest terrace there is a real treat waiting for you. The view over all the roof tops of the old town is wonderful and there is a plunge pool/jacuzzi and comffortable beds to lie and relax. I could say more but you need to see for yourself - I am sure that this Riad will not disappoint! We will definitely return and I hope it will be soon.
