An extended family of 9 enjoyed our stay at Riad de la Mer the last week of February, right from our arrival - when Abdul sent a man to take our luggage and show us the way. (The medina can be pretty confusing before you...More
We had a family holiday over Xmas 2014 in this lovely riad. Ideal size for 8 adults and 2 small children - each family had a separate floor. Abdul was at Marrakesh airport as arranged with a taxi and a minibus. The journey to Essaouira...More

Dear Hilary. Thank you for your interest in Riad de la Mer. In answer to your question about the 4th floor bedroom accommodation, I would say that there is no problem for tall people with the super king-size bed (which has no footboard).
