Have just spent 5 nights in Riad Etoile and were sorry to leave, we were made so welcome, nothing was any trouble to them. The whole place is strikingly beautiful, the camera doesn't lie. All the staff were so friendly and helpful. We stayed in "Dana" room.
It was so clean and fresh to come back to after the mayhem of the narrow alleyways and cluttered souks. There was tea/mint tea/coffee available, just ask.
The state of the art hot-tub on the roof is finished now - with curtains (if you need them) and to add to the enjoyment, it comes with music, changing coloured lights, fountains, etc. and there is a shower and toilet there too.
It is so quiet once inside, and we slept well on the quite firm mattress. The toiletries were in such pretty silver trimmed bottles and the soap had a lovely spicy smell. For breakfast, which was good, there was ample freshly squeezed orange juice. We particularly liked the homemade fig jam (and we're not mad about figs!) and lovely crispy toast, but there was quite a selection of items on offer, just help yourself.
On leaving for the trip to Essouria, a full breakfast was provided at 7a.m. and we were escorted to a taxi in the big square and taken to the minibus - recommend this trip organised by the riad. (It would have meant an awkward trip to the bus station to get the ticket the day before if we had gone by bus, and the bus station is in the new town area).
From the riad we were able to walk to the main sights in Marrakech, saving the hassle and haggling getting taxis.
Cannot imagine any riad being better and would highly recommend.
