They say 'third time lucky' and for my third visit to Marrakech (and my girlfriend's first) we chose this Riad, mainly because of a combination of good pricing and positive customer reviews. we couldn't have done better. Joce and Moice are the epitome of Lebanese hospitality - warm, friendly, good natured and good humoured people who will gladly go out of their way to help you if at all possible. The Riad itself is superb, clean, well decorated, and with many little touches that just added to the general feel-good factor that surrounds this property.
Te location is (by Marrakech standards) one of the easiest I have found, although I would recommend you let the owners arrange your transfers to and from the Riad (at very reasonable prices). A little French goes a long way in Marrakech, but Joce has pretty good English and arranged a car for us for the day at a good rate after my original arrangements fell over.
We loved the room, and the little extras (like spa-quality bathrobes and a scattering of rose petals in the bathroom) were lovely. Their kitchen staff are very attentive, and it's well worth eating there at least once during your stay.
Despite the fact the Riad is almost next door to a school, we found it to be really quiet most of the time (bearing in mind you're never more than 100m from a mosque in Marrakech, particularly in the Medina). Like anywhere else in Marrakech, you need to pick out landmarks as navigation aids, but this place is comparatively simple to find, both by car and on foot.
Everyone should visit Marrakech once, and after a day of craziness in the centre, this was the perfect little haven to return to each evening. By far my favourite place to stay in Marrakech!
