The Riad Cinnamon is just beautiful. After booking from their website and being a little unsure if the reality would live up to the photos we were overwhelmed with how beautiful the Riad was when we arrived, it was simply stunning. From the moment we arrived we felt at home. The Riad has been renovated to an outstanding level, the rooms are spacious and tastefully decorated in a modern Morrocan style. Air con, fridge, travel adaptor, hairdryer etc all provided in the rooms was great. Also a great touch was the very useful luggage scales provided to aid the Ryanair battle on the way home with luggage weight (we still failed as there was too much amazing shopping to be had!)
The service at the Riad Cinnamon given by Abdou (the manager) is unbeatable, he is there for any queries, helps to book restaurants and trips, organise any whim you may have (ours was camel riding!). On arrival you also receive a very accurate map and directions along with a local mobile phone. The phone is a brilliant touch as if you are ever lost or in need of advice Abdou is always there (his english is brilliant & he is very friendly). The girls that work in the Riad are also brilliant, they are extremely friendly and can do henna tattooing much better than the people in the square. As two women travelling alone we were initially apprehensive about finding our way back to the Riad at night (Marrakech is a maze, but an amazing one) but we needn't have worried as the ever reliable Hassan can guide you at anytime. He even came to meet us from the restaurant the first night to guide us back and ensure we didn't get lost!
We ate one night in the Riad and the food was outstanding, the girls had cooked a beautiful lamb & prune tagine with a morrocan salad starter and lemon cake dessert, all very yummy.
The roof terrace is super relaxing and the perfect spot to sun yourself after a hard mornings shopping!
I can't actually find the words to explain how lovely our 4 days were, only to say that if I could have just moved in and not come back I would have!
Thanks to all at Riad Cinnamon, we will definately be back and highly recommend this Riad to anyone. If you go to Marrakech, stay at the Riad Cinnamon (or the sister Riad Papillion).
