Patrick and Marie were excellent stand in hosts for their son.
Nice top floor room typical of a Riad, lovelly and clean and just refurbished. Flowers everywhere and orange trees growing in reception area.
Food on an evening we stayed in was beautiful traditional Moroccan with special effort from everyone for an aniversary meal and a bottle of local wine.
Breakfast was always very nice, fresh and a great start to the day with a good mixture of eggs,bread,cake,preserves,pastries, fruit and drinks.
Great location from walking out the door to being in the Souks and main square within minutes. Hard to believe the turmoil only a few feet outside the Riad and the tranquility inside. Only noise was the religious chanting early in the morning that would last around ten minutes sometimes coming from the residential area the Riad is located. The Riad even organised a member of staff to take us out the first morning free of charge to orientate ourselves.
You really need to get orientated quickly to find your way out and into this location as its entrance is in a back street that leads onto the main bussle of one of the buisier residential streets and really exceptionally busy outside with just the locals buying and selling within a few metres of the door from stalls and local little cupboard type shops.
Also watch out for motor bikes flying around in the whole of Marrakech between pedestrians in all the streets and footpaths as well as in the Souks and markets,it can be a bit daunting at first and quite dangerous.
Just beware of people in the street telling you in this area as well as the whole of Marrakech any story to guide you to go with them to local places then wanting money.
The Riad organised a taxi to and from the airport that saved a load of hassle as noone knows where half the riads are so it was door to door. The Riad also organised a trip to the sea for us and a trip to the Atlas mountains, both excellent trips and great English speaking drivers and payment direct to the Riad rather than having to haggle not knowing if you were safe or not.
A great first experience and we would recommend to anyone.
