I bought a 4 night trip to Marrakech as a Christmas present for my sister and after alot of research settled on the Riad Doucuer Mandarine and was not disappointed. If you have not been to Marrakech before then it is easy to be quite intimidated by the city on arrival as it is a crazy place however it is far safer than it first appears and once you have adjusted to their lifestyle an amazing place to visit. Riads are tucked away inside the medina and hard to find so I would definately advise arranging the airport transfer with the owners as you may struggle to find it but once you arrive you will be given a map (which was well used!) and the area explained fully by Sylvie or Stefan (who are so helpful and kind)
An immaculately clean property, comfortable and well equipped, with staff that are lovely. The roof terrace is beautiful and it was a shame we could not use it as much as we would have liked to due to the weather being a little cooler in Feb. Breakfast was basic but plentiful and they are happy to accommodate your requests.Wifi in the rooms works well, and despite being cool in the evenings the airconditioning worked well to heat the room quickly. The bathroom is large with plenty of hot water although the shower a little low down for me as I am almost 6 foot, but was not a real problem.
10 minutes to the main square through a residential area with friendly locals, and although can seem a little intimidating at first you soon realise nothing could be further from the truth. I had been to Marrakech once before and stayed in a large hotel. Big mistake! Riads are traditional and beautiful and the only way to make your stay complete. Would definately stay at Riad Douceur Mandarine again......in fact planning to take our mum later in the year.
