We cannot recommend this riad highly enough. Not only is it absolutely beautiful, you have an instant feeling of cool and calm when you walk through the door. You would never believe all the hustle and bustle going on a couple of alleyways away!
It's situated right by the palace, about 15 minutes walk away (if you don't get distracted by all the street vendors) from the main square and the souks.
The staff are really friendly and accommodating. When we arrived we felt like we were on honeymoon with all the petals strewn all over the room! We stayed in 3 rooms in total as we used it as a base while we traveled around a bit. Each has it's own identity and they all are equally beautiful, very clean and have powerful aircon which is much needed! We often had the roof terrace, including the sun-loungers and jacuzzi to ourselves which was great. You can happily have breakfast or supper up here too.
Breakfast was a great spread of things. Very traditionally Moroccan and fresh everyday.They also serve dinner which we had on a couple of nights. The food was great, some of the best we had whilst there and well priced too. Mustafa also makes a mean sangria which is unlimited.
Most importantly the staff dealt with an emergency very proficiently, and made a potentially stressful situation much easier to handle. My boyfriend had a bad accident whilst we were staying there (passed out and smashed his head up) the staff responded quickly and had good first aid skills. Karen called a good doctor to come and stitch his head up, which was much better than having to move him and go to the local medical center.
We cannot thank them all enough for a great stay and would highly recommend this place to anyone who wants a relaxing base in Marrakech.
