We went from the 5-8 of May and we had the most amazing time. To be honest, we had our reservations about going to Marrakech but we absolutely loved it and would not hesitate going back. We stayed at this Riad and the service was outstanding. Immediately after booking we received a lovely email from Rashid and Charlotte and were told we could opt to be picked up from the airport. We decided this was the best option, it is 6euros per person. The Riad is really well situated, maybe about 15 minutes walk from the Place and it is a 5 minute walk to the Souks. Whilst this might seem far, it is absolutely recommendable. In the Riad it is extremely peaceful and it is away from all the noise of the street and the hustle and bustle, yet still very close to everything. Once we arrived at the Riad we were warmly greeted by Charlotte with mint tea and Moroccan goodies. She explained everything there was to know. The whole Riad was beautifully decorated and our room was stunning. Everything was extremely clean. We felt immediately at home. We were introduced to Simon, who was extremely friendly – he went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable and felt at home. Both Charlotte and Simon made our experience SO so special. The service was exceptional!
We went on an excursion to the Ourika valley. We booked this with Charlotte. Although the price was slightly more expensive than prices we had seen in the centre, this was because you get your own private driver, rather than going with a bus of 14 other people. We went with Hossam who was extremely friendly and made our trip fantastic! This trip is highly recommendable.
We had breakfast every morning on the wonderfully decorated terrace. The breakfast was amazing, so much to choose from! Everything was so delicious. On the last night we had supper at the hotel. We were the only couple in the Riad that night, and Simon decorated the terrace especially for us with candles and petals! He cooked us a delicious meal, it was the best meal we had in Marrakech!
When we go back to Marrakech we are definitely going to come back to this Riad and we have highly recommended it to all of our friends. All in all, I would give our stay a 10 out of 10 and I cannot fault anything!
