“Great stay at Riad Sekkat, could not have expected more!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2012

I had chosen to stay at Riad Sekkat having looked at the reviews on Tripadvisor. We took advantage of the 3 nights half-board package which was very good value.
I have to admit I had my reservations as we had to pay half of the reservation upfront to secure the booking and had to do it by bank transfer. However Valerie was very helpful and all went smoothly. She was responsive to all emails and queries.
The whole stay from arrival to departure went smoothly. Khalid, who managed the riad in Valerie's absence, was very hospitable, friendly and helpful. We could not have asked for anything more. They prepared lunch for us on the roof terrace al fresco which was a very nice surprise as it was a very sunny day. We informed Khalid the day before when we wanted our breakfast and dinner and he was always obliging.
The riad is about 7 minutes walk to the souks and about 15 minutes walk to the main square.
I thoroughly recommend the riad for couples, families and groups. They have 4 rooms and it is possible to book the whole riad.
Just be aware that they only speak French, although our friend managed to communicate with Khalid via Google Translate.

From our initial enquiry through to being taken back to the airport at the end of our stay, we could not have asked for more. All our questions prior to arriving were answered and our every need catered for when there. We were made to feel very special and welcome. Beautiful roses were in our room, courtyard and dining area. In the evening fairy lights and candles illuminated the private courtyard.

We were the only guests at the riad. Khalid and his wife were so attentive and thoughtful. Khalid patiently imparted his cooking skills to my husband in spite of the language difficulties given that my husband does not speak any French or Arabic.

Khalid hired a car and drove us to one of the beautiful valleys. He also took us to purchase our tagine and mobile accessories. On top of this he arranged for me to go to a traditional hammam that I requested and also for a massage for my husband.

We enjoyed most the personal attention that we received from Valérie when booking and prior to arriving as well as that of Khalid and his wife at the riad. We also enjoyed the calm and convenience of the riad. What we least enjoyed was leaving. We expected 7 days to be too long in Marrakech. In fact, we still have lots more to see and do so we will be going back to Riad Sekkat at the first possible opportunity.

Once again, we spent a wonderful stay at Riad Sekkat. Exceptional location, exceptional "cuisine", so peaceful. One of the best value for money option I found in Marrakech. It was once again too short. For sure, we will come back !
