Arriving in Marrakech for the first time is a strange and wonderful experience but with Nick and his colleagues at Riad Africa there to provide the welcome, you immediately feel at ease. The hotel itself is down a back street or two off the beaten path but very near the heart of the old city. Within its courtyard, there is a sense of calm with a relaxing atmosphere and staff who look after you very well. And if you get the opportunity, please sample the food - it's fantastic! Nick also arranged an excellent itinerary for us to go up into the High Atlas and Anti-Atlas Mountains with a guide and driver who were world class. We felt like missing old friends when we parted several days later. We had a five-star experience at Riad Africa - we're sure you will too!
