Everywhere you go in Marakesh, you are asked 'where you from' and after you tell them the same response 'big welcome'. The people here in general are kind and generous and specifically that is the case at Riad Majela. The website description of the riad and its location is accurate; it is a quiet oasis amid the delightful chaos of the medina and one we returned to to regroup during the day. Youssef welcomed us each evening and each morning,served delicous, simple breakfasts on the roof terrace and brought us cold beers when we returned shattered after a hard day of getting lost. I would return to this lovely location if I were lucky enough to be back in Marakesh.
