I have to say I was very pleasantly surprised by how little hassle I faced in Marrakech. I loved the location of this pretty Riad-in the authentic souk where locals buy vegetables and meat. The streets are spotless and we felt safe wandering around until late at night. Its a 10 min walk through the souks to the main square and frankly a welcome walk after heavy meals. The riad has a beautiful small plunge pool which would be priceless in the summer. The dinner served was superb. The staff-Hassan in particular-were wonderful.Hassan,an intelligent and kindly Berber had many interesting insights into Moroccon life.He was great with the children too,playing cards with us until late into the night. The rooms are a little dark but this is typically Riad-esque and Im sure welcome in the height of summer.
Food tip-Fantastic cookery course at Souk Cuisine-great for adults and children and the best way to get to know the souks as the locals do.
Lunch-order Mechoui near the main square-the roasted lamb-served with bread, salt and cumin. Not for the faint hearted but the best lamb i have tasted.Souk Cuisine will show you where it is.
