On arrival ( 4/07/12) we were given Morrocan Tea which was different but nice, a map of the area.
A previous comment on here about air condiioning being turned off if you dont eat her seems strange as other guests ate out and no comments about this were said. We had the control to turn on or off in our room.
We had an enjoyable stay at this Riad and found the staff to be very helpful and freindly. My wife and I had not been to Marrakesh previously and found the 40 degrees heat overpowering. The Riad is found by going along narrow side paths but once inside it was pleasant, clean. I can truely say the bed was the most comfortable i had slept in. The Riad was very quiet both day and night. We ate in the resturant on a couple of occasions and the food was very good. Try the Morroccan Soup, if you like red wine try the local Morrocan, it is full bodied and very tasty to the palate. The breakfast consists of a large bowl of fresh fruit, bread / cake , tea or coffee.
Finding the Riad is very testing and strongly recommend letting the Riad sort your taxi from the airport and to the airport out. Our taxi was sorted out by my travel agent but the Riad uses the same ones.
Walking the 20 minutes to the main square through the narrow street of a souk was a daunting task with mopeds, moter bikes flying past you both ways. Crossing the roads was a nightmare. Be very careful if you have young children.
Becareful if you take photos of anyone they will demand money. We asked someone the way on the map and he followed us for ages wanting money to take us. There were to girls aged about 23 who were very frightened as they were followed and pestered they were also ripped off 100 dirham each for taking a photo.
Thank to Damien and his team as we enjoyed our short break.
