This riad is tranquil, peaceful and relaxing. I chose it for its location as I wanted somewhere quiet, away from the chaos of the Medina but knowing that the shuttle bus would transfer us to and from the centre of Marrakech when we wanted to go. The Riad is 25 mins from anywhere and is reliant upon an organised shuttle service which it does not have. It could be great but the shuttle NEVER arrives on time. When it does take you in to sample the delights of Marrakech, the driver insists on picking u up at 9.30 pm at he latest, which is very early and not really enough time to relax and enjoy an evening meal. One night the shuttle left early and abandoned us in town and we had to pay 200 dirhams to get back. Very badly organised. This hotel/Riad will not survive unless this shuttle service is run properly. The food is adequate but expect to wait a minimum of 40 mins for anything. Breakfast is bread, jam, orange juice, yoghurt and pancake. This is served everyday . No fruit, eggs, or any variety. It's just ok. The milky coffee is good. On our last day, they ran out of tomatoes, which meant we could not have moroccan salad or tomato and mozzarella salad which were two of the better dishes on the menu. The hotel was a really cheap deal. Expect food to match. I would return to Morocco. It's wonderfully vibrant and I met some lovely people but I would not spend more than 2 nights in this Riad. The monotony of the breakfast nearly killed me! Don't book any excursions from this hotel. Unreliable. The gardens are pretty and the young staff do their best but they have no organisation at all. Such a shame as it could be so much better
