From the nightmare of the airport, to the chaos of the streets, down through the alleyways into the tranquillity of Riad Maison Belbaraka.
Being our first time in Marrakech, arriving early evening and not knowing how adventurous we would be feeling we had arranged an evening meal with Charlotte, it was excellent and caused a dilemma every subsequent night – did we try the various city eateries or stay in the Riad knowing we would receive an excellent meal.
Our room (Pigeonnier) was lovely, extremely clean and welcoming – all the rooms looked like they were to the same high standard.
Breakfast every morning on the terrace, at whatever time we chose to get up, was wonderful, no pressure, excellent food and Charlotte’s team happily provided any extras requested.
Charlotte spent time with us the first evening with a map and her invaluable knowledge, advising of both the pitfalls and the highlights of the city, making sure we knew where to find the things we really wanted to see. Rachid was there waiting for us the next morning to guide us from the Riad onto the main road ensuring we noted the various markers so we could easily return to the Riad. With our map, set of keys for the Riad and list of phone numbers ‘just in case’ we were off.
What a wonderful city.
For us Riad Belbaraka was the perfect place to explore it from – within the Medina, so easy walking distance to everywhere, but outside the souks so once the Riad front door shut the noise and chaos of the streets completely disappeared. There was always somebody there to welcome us back in, no matter what time of day or night we arrived and nothing was ever any trouble.
We will one day return to Marrakech and will absolutely be staying at Riad Maison Belbaraka again.
