We have travelled extensively, but we have never experienced such personal service from a hotel. We were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary and right from the start we were able to arrange some details directly with the hotel by email, such as champagne in the room.
The food was outstanding and the staff explained each dish of our amazing homemade three course evening meal which we ate sitting on the beautiful terrace. Daily breakfast was also remarkably good with flat breads, home made jams and freshly squeezed orange juice. The staff were extremely attentive, helpful and nothing was too much trouble - always greeting us with a smile and very keen to make our stay very special.
Ahmed offered valuable tourist advice and we enjoyed a beer round the small pool whilst making use of the free wifi. We stayed in the Coral room which was perfect in every way, right down to the room safe. The Riad was impeccably clean, and well kept, offering a serene and beautiful sanctuary from the hubbub that is Marrakech.
The short walk to the main square took us through the most interesting parts of the city, so the Riad could not be in a better location. We loved Marrakech itself and found the people to be lovely. We felt very safe and at home there. Shopping in the Souks is a great experience so make sure you have plenty of room in your suitcase for your flight home!
All in all, a perfect break - but the thing that sets this trip apart was the warmth, welcome and genuine personal attention from all the staff. It was as if we were staying with family or close friends.
A massive thank you to Laurent, Ahmed, Mohammed, Samira, Fatima and all the team for making our trip so very special from Claire and Philippe.
