We stayed at the Riad Les Orangers D'Alilia for 5 days at the beginning of June. The Riad had arranged a taxi to pick us up from the airport and despite being delayed by huge queues in passport control, the taxi was still waiting. A very welcome cup of mint tea was waiting for us on arrival at the Riad.
The Riad is spotlessly clean and well maintained. Our room (Sophia) was on the first floor ( 1 room is on the ground floor and the other 4 on the first) and was well sized with a good size shower ( with plenty of hot water) with a wash basin and toilet adjoining. The bed was comfortable and large. Even though we were overlooking the alley, the room was quiet and there was air conditioning which we used when necessary. The breakfasts were good (but do not expect a large cooked breakfast) , taken on the roof terrace - a lovely way to start the day. Joelle and her staff were excellent - helpful, friendly and nothing was ever a problem. We had one meal at the Riad which was good.
The Riad is some 15 minute walk from the main square but since it is along roads with shops and cafes, was enjoyable. There are not many eating places near the Riad but the Cafe Kasbah ( opposite the Mosque De La Kasbah) provided a good selection of meals and snacks and the rooftop terrace was a good place to have a mint tea and watch the storks nesting opposite. A more upmarket and very good meal we had at the Hotel Jardins de la Medina ( right out of the Riad and then left for about 100 metres on the right).
We had two trips, one to the foothills of th Atlas Mountains and a coach trip to Essaouira - both worthwhile.
Overall, a very good holiday and we would recommend the Riad and Marrakech to everyone.
