The Riad is in a great spot, near the El Badi Palace and walking distance to the square. We arrived at night and had arranged an airport pick-up which was good as it would have been difficult to find on the first night. We were led down an alleyway until we reacher an arched wooden door in a high wall. It opened up into a lovely candlelit courtyard with a small pool. I had the pool to myself and every evening at sunset I swam and floated on my back watching the storks that nested in the giant nests on the palace walls circle above me. After my swim I was offered mint tea by the friendly lady staff or Hamid one of the managers. All the staff were lovely.The first 4 nights we stayed in a suite on the first foor. It was a nice room with a comfy bed but the airconditioning didnt cool it down enough. After our few days away we stayed in a rooftop room. This was smaller but still lovely and the airconditioning was better. Hamid was a mine of information , he spoke some English and with my very few words of French we got by, his recommendation of a restaurant was just right and we had a great night. Our last night was lovely.We arrived back in the evening from Essaoira. I had my swim and we had booked a meal at the Riad which was great. All the food was fresh and specially prepared for us by the cook.We had a lovely meal followed by mint tea by the pool. I would stay here if I ever visit Marrakech again.
