Dear Bernard & Jamal
I am so sorry this is a late review as we stayed with you in January, I don't think you will ever forget both Mark and I (its Paula here!). To anyone looking for a little piece of heaven, calming, relaxing, warm and cosy with wonderful food and a wine cellar that I drunk dry but was re-stocked by Bernard at an instant, please don't look any further than Riad Menzeh. Its located 10 mins from the main square and Bernard will insist on walking you there with a map marking out key landmarks ensuring you don't get lost on your way back. Its very easy after your first 2 trips.
Marrakech was not for me and sadly I didn't enjoy it. BUT if I could move Riad Menzeh to another country I would be back year after year. I can not begin to tell you how well I was looked after. Bernard and Jamal went out of there way to try and make my stay as comfortable as possible. Bernard walked us into the town and on my one and only trip out to a restaurant in the evening Bernard insisted he walked us there and asked the restaurant to call him when we was ready to leave so he could come and walk me home again!!.
Majda cooked for us every night and the food was amazing. Always 3 courses which were delicious washed down with wonderful wine. Riad Menzeh feels like you have just walked into a friends cosy house to stay as that is what Bernard has created. I cannot sing its praises enough and I can assure anyone looking to stay in Marrakech you will not be disappointed.
Bernard, thank you so much for your amazing hospitality it was beyond anything I have ever experienced.
Jamal for having to put up with me, always ensuring I had hot coffee in the morning along with a lovely breakfast and wine in the afternoon!.
Majda, some of the best food ever! All of your own recipies and everything made from scratch it was truly wonderful.
Best wishes to you all Paula and Mark xxx
