We have just returned from a week at the Riad Qodwa. From entering to leaving the property we were made to feel like family. The Riad is located outside Marrakech with a shuttle bus available for visits in to Marrakech. As Marrakech is such a busy place, it was lovely to get back to the peace and quiet after experiencing the hustle and bustle of people,cars,carts and most of all motor cycles in the city itself.
Our bedroom (5) was enormous, complete with sofa and armchair. We did not have a panoramic view from the room, only the bushes lining the pathway! Breakfast was served outside (inside if you preferred) and was perfectly adequate for our needs (bread, pancake, french pastry, yogurt, jam, cheese and olives). The pool area was lovely for sunbathing and, for those brave enough, a swim (Water was a bit cold). Inside there were plenty seating areas to relax in.
Wifi was free and usually good reception.
The driver of the shuttle deserves a mention as, to be honest, I do not know how he made it through the traffic in Marrakech in reasonable time to meet his passengers. We went into the city 3 times and waited for the shuttle at the Cafe Roxe opposite the pick up point.
We went on one trip to the Ourika Valley arranged by the Riad staff. We enjoyed this as it gave us a flavour of the Atlas Mountain area.
All the staff went out of their way to help us make the most of our trip and so deserve our thanks.
