I chose Riad Zamzam as the venue for our Moroccan wedding reception based on fantastic food reviews and wasn't disappointed even catering en masse for 27 people (including 2 vegetarians and 1 vegan).
We stayed for a week and were treated like royalty, every wish granted. We were travelling with young children who were entertained by the very friendly staff, fussy eaters catered for, dozens of bottles prepared, last minute baby-sitting requests fulfilled.
The location is within walking distance of the main sights but far enough to avoid the noise. You still get dogs barking in the middle of the night and call to prayer but not much can be done about that.
Staff very helpful in arranging day trips, restaurant bookings, all transport.
The Hamam was fantastic (however the therapist doesn't speak English if you have special requirements).
I love the décor, very luxurious, lots of attention to detail and very peaceful ambience but still very Moroccan - all locally sourced. Also super place for a party in the evening with stunning lighting and different spaces to use i.e. snug room/courtyard/terrace/balcony.
There was difficulty arranging rooms. I specifically asked not to stay in one room and ended up spending one night in there before being moved to our desired room.
The welcome book says fresh fruit & water in the room replenished daily. Only fruit were oranges in the courtyard & water replenishment was slack. I'm sure this would have been addressed had I brought it up.
Very special venue, wonderful staff, amazing food, fantastic intimate wedding.
