Have just returned from a week in Marrakech and Riad Barroko with a friend. The Riad is wonderful, the superior double we had was on the roof and had fantastic views, the room was cleaned daily, breakfast was in the courtyard and the two trips we booked to Essaouria and Ourika were great. Essaouria is worth the two hour drive as the contrast between Marrakech and Essaouria couldn't be greater! Marrakech is busy and vibrant, Essaouria is gentle and calm and not polluted by manic bike riders! Only note of warning is the trip to waterfalls, if you are not a big walker this could be hard as you need to climb over rocks and up mountains to get there, flip flops will not work! I found muscles in my legs never before used and an ability to become a mountain goat....but its all worth it...the views is fantastic and amazingly you can still buy pottery and jewellery in the mountains!
Would also recommend dinner in the Riad, had one of the best meals of the whole trip and cheap. Also recommend the Hammam nearby, very wonderful experience......friend and I agreed we would stay visit Marrakech and Riad Barroko again. Though would recommend French phrase books as staff do not speak English.
