We chose Marrakech to hold our Annual Advisory Board meetings in early February. 13 of use stayed at The Angsana Riads for 4 nights and our experience was fantastic. We were met at the airport and driven to The Angsana. Upon arrival at Riad Firdaus myself and my colleagues received a very warm welcome from Mohammed - the Riad Host. We were given mint tea and pastries - delicious! Many of our guys were keen to see a big rugby game that was being televised so they promptly arranged a tv and refreshments!
All the staff made us feel very welcome and the service we received was outstanding. I was given the use of a mobile phone in order that I could contact the Riad Host if I needed help with anything. Special mention to Sabah who I dealt with prior to our arrival and helped with all our accommodation and meeting requests - she was a fantastic help to me. Also Mohammed, the Riad Host who was always there to greet us with a smile. Big mention to Cous Cous our Riad host in the evening. He was great and went out of his way one evening to get some batteries for our Chairman's camera!!
Golf trips/hot air balloon trip and museum tours all organised via the Angasana and enjoyed by all.
We had a number of meals here and all were very good - we all had a great time at the Arabian Night buffet and enjoyed the entertainment provided.
Our meetings were held at Riad Zaouia - a short walk from where we stayed - the meeting room was set up with pads/pens and audio/visual equipment as requested.
The rooms are very traditional, clean and well equipped. There is a beautiful sun terrace which we made a lot of use of. The Spa at Firdaus is fantastic and myself and one other enjoyed the Hamman and Massage treatment - thank you Rini!
The Riad is only a 10 minute walk from the main square and there are quite a lot of shops and restaurants on the way.
It is a fantastic place and I would highly recommend this to anyone.
