The Riad Adriana was recommended to me by a good friend who has stayed there several times. I read the excellent reviews on Trip Advisor and visited the website and decided it was ideal. The Riad offers exceptional value for money; the rooms are immaculate and the staff are polite, friendly and attentive and always smiling. The owners of the Riad, Idriss and Melanie, are really lovely and do their utmost to make you feel welcome.
We arranged transfers to and from the airport and everything went really smoothly. The taxi drops you at a nearby mosque, which is as close as you can get by car. You have a short walk to the Riad along narrow streets full of local traders and your bags are carried in a wagon. At first you wonder where you are going, then you walk through the Riad door into a beautiful oasis. The Riad has been beautifully renovated and is really well maintained with beautiful carvings and painted ceilings. Every room is exquisitely decorated and very traditional.
On our arrival at the Riad, we were proffered with mint tea and delicious cakes and Idriss spent some time with us going through places to visit on the map of Marrakech, then we were shown to our room. We stayed in the Olive room on the first floor, which was lovely.
The rooms are large, well-appointed and really quiet and peaceful. The bed was really comfortable and we slept extremely well. Each morning we were woken by the singing of birds, which was simply lovely.
We ate at the Riad on our first night as we arrived quite late and the meal was exceptionally good. The Riad has an excellent chef who clearly takes a lot of pride in their cooking and presentation. The meal was so good we decided to eat at the Riad again on our last evening. We were asked to pick the meal we would like from a cook book; it was absolutely delicious and exceptionally good value for money.
Breakfast is served on the upstairs terrace in the sunshine, which is glorious and such a lovely way to start the day. Each day we were given freshly squeezed orange juice, homemade yogurt, tea and coffee and pancakes with jam or honey.
The Riad is in a really good location in the Medina and it is only a short walk to all the main attractions.
Idriss and Melanie have worked hard to make it feel like home and to be honest it felt very much like visiting old friends. I loved it so much I have already booked another trip in October and I am very much looking forward to visiting my friends at the Riad again.
