To properly experience Marrakesh you have to stay in a Riad. Riad 58 is first class and ALL the staff and Paolo are very helpful.
Of course you have to work out how to find the Riad in the maze of little streets but it is not difficult and fun. At least you can rub shoulders with the locals ( literally!).Mohammed and Ismail were helpful in their advice and were willing to take you to local restaurants. Toufik the local driver is very helpful and always at the right place at the right time.
Cannot fault the Riad and would stay there again.
For visits, Ourika valley and Essaouaira are musts as well as the Majorelle gardens.
Restaurants, Tanjia, El Fassia, , Peppenero are first class - you get what you pay for.
Dancing displays in restaurants equal mediocre food and high price.
