My mum has always wanted to visit Marrakech and as we don't get to spend much time together I surprised her with a girl's trip there for her birthday present. I chose Riad Carina as it was in the Medina and I was advised to choose a riad over a hotel as the experience is more authentic and personal. They were not wrong.
Riad Carina was beautiful. You walk through the door to a lovely, peaceful courtyard where breakfast is served daily. The rooms are comfortable and provided everything we needed. We were on the top floor and our door opened onto a roof terrace where you could relax in the sun on the loungers if the weather permitted.
The staff at the Riad were wonderful. They were welcoming and helpful. The weather was a little chilly when we went and they provided an endless supply of delicious mint tea. We had dinner there one night which was the best meal we had in Marrakech- our one regret was that we didn't have more dinners there.
We met others at the Riad who had been before- everyone was very welcoming and friendly. I would most certainly stay there again and would highly recommend it.
