We first found the Riad Lyla by default and having spent a delightful night there 2 years, vowed to return.
Wanting to plan something special for a 60th birthday this seemed the obvious answer.
We booked directly with Dominique, who really could not have been more helpful. He arranged our transfers from and to the airport, purchased our bus tickets to Essouaria, bartered for our taxi to the bus station, and even let us use the Riad on our return to Marrakech before our flight home.
Breakfasts were delicious, afternoon teas served on the roof terrace and even special 60th birthday cake was no trouble.
Evening fires were lit in the salon even though we were the only visitors and wine was forthcoming.
Dominique and his staff did indeed make our stay memorable for all the right reasons.
We look forward to an excuse to return.
