We chose this Riad as it was well recommended on tripadvisor, we were very happy with our choice. Right from the moment we stepped off the plane and had a taxi waiting for us the trip was special. He took us to the Riad where the wonderful Aziz was waiting to greet us. We were provided with a lovely glass of mint tea while he showed us the map and recommended things to do. He then walked us to the main square which was great as we were then able to get about without getting lost. Unfortunately during my visit I was unwell with a heavy cold, so did not get to get out and explore as much as we would have liked... Luckily just relaxing on the roof terrace was possible and provided me with some much needed rest and recovery time. It also means I have a great excuse to come back! Sadly Laurent was in France on holiday so we did not meet: he carries my family name which is pretty unusual, hopefully I will cross paths with him next time we visit.
The team at the Riad could not of made us feel more welcome or less looked after. Breakfast was yummy as was the meal they cooked for us on the first night. Best tagine I had during my visit by far!
As they had no reservation for our room for a couple of days, they were kind enough to let us use the room while we waited for our evening flight on our last day. A little gesture of kindness that made all the difference especially as I was still feeling rather under the weather.
I would not hesitate to recommend this Riad to anyone. Yes the streets of Marrkech outside its doors are hectic, crazy and downright scary at times, but the Riad by contrast is the absolute opposite. Calm, relaxed and safe. The advice we were given by Aziz and the directions, allowed us to dip in and out of the madness outside and make the most of our three night trip.
