My daughters and myself went for a three day trip to Marrakesh. We had a great time, the Riad was lovely with very helpful and friendly staff. The breakfast was filling and tasty, it may have been nice to have had some fresh fruit and yoghurt as well as the pastries and bread as one of my daughters couldn't eat wheat, however it was easy enough for us to buy in the markets. The rooms were clean and spacious with plenty of sockets, and hanging space for clothes. The bathrooms had hot, powerful showers and plenty of towels. The rooftop was great to sit on for breakfast or having mint tea in the afternoon. At night you could sit under cover on comfortable chairs in authentic Moroccan style. Trip to the Atlas mountains with ride on camels was truly memorable, with a lovely lunch in a Berber house on the balcony overlooking the Toubkal mountain ( second highest in Africa apparently). The souks were fine once you got the hang of offering almost half what was asked for and sticking to your guns or almost. Found a lovely open air bar called Kosybar near the Riad which sold wine, beer and cocktails, it overlooked a square and part of the wall where you could see storks in very close proximity nesting and flying around. It was great to hear the Imman calling people to prayer around the city. Staying in the old city made us feel we had travelled to a foreign country rather than stay in a hotel that could be anywhere. I would recommend Marrakesh and this Riad to travellers wishing to see the Medina.
