Having read the previous review on here, I was a bit worried about finding the apartment on arrival so I pre booked a transfer. We had no problems that way and then could get our own bearings the next (I would thoroughly recommend buying the Lonely Planet guide to Marrakech as it has an invaluable map at the back).
Also, having read the previous review, it was also good to know that the apartment looked out onto a grave yard as then I knew what I was going to. This caused me no problems at all as, to me, it was better then looking into someone elses window!
The apartment is located near Jardin Majorelle (thoroughly recommend going there, it is a great oasis). The apartment is not in the centre. It only took about 15 minutes to walk to Mohammed V in Ville Nouvelle where there are numerous upmarket eateries. Its about 40 minutes to walk to the Djemaa El Fna Square. You can see great sunsets from the apartment too.
The lady that owns the apartment could not do enough for us. She upgraded us from the studio we had booked to the one bedroom apartment. The only drag was having to go through the inventory of the apartment when we arrived (and when we left!). I guess you just take that as part of the process though. One day I asked for an extra sheet...I got a duvet! Bless.
One thing I would thoroughly recommend is eating out in the Djemaa El Fna square in the evening (awesome atmosphere). I also had a hammam and was treated to one at 'Le Bains de Marrakech' - it was an awesome experience in a most amazing riad :)
The apartments do not have a swimming pool. We found it easy to use the one at Hotel Le Marrakech.
All in all a good holiday which I can not fault in anyway.
