After searching for a few weeks we came across this riad as we wanted to get the true Moroccan experience. rashid (the husband of the manager) was there waiting for us at the airport on time. When we arrived at the riad, which was in the heart of the medina, we were very pleased by the welcoming atmosphere. The room was adequate and very clean, the bathroom was of a good size with a very comfortable bath and an excellent shower.the 5 nights we were there was a heat wave in marrakech and the air conditioning in the room was a godsend when we came back in from the searing heat.
At dinner and breakfast we had tariq helping out who was great and ready to help with any request.
The quality of the dinner was great and the choice of food for breakfast was second.to none.Charlotte (the manager) was great and without her we would have not known where anything was! She arranged a driver for the day to take us on an excursion to the Atlas mountains. He was also called Rashid and was a fantastic guide. He took us to a local Berber village, took us into someone's house where we had some tea. Then we went to see argan oil being made by handmade then the mountain. Note that when they advise you to get a guide in the mountains then listen to them. We.didn't thinking we knew better and it ended up taking us 1.5 hours to hike when it should havetaken 20 minutes!
In conclusion we would recommend this riad to anyone looking for a stress free holiday in marrakech at very good prices.
Thank you Charlotte and Rashid as without you our time in marrakech would have been rubbish!
By try he way I put Terri le for swimming pools there wasn't one and in fairness other riads that advertise one itt will be no more than a tiny tiny tiny dipping pool.
