This was our first time in Marrakech, after too much TripAdvisor research I stopped on Riad Tamarrakecht and decided it was the one. We were not disappointed.
We were staying for six nights in total but because we booked fairly late the Riad was only available for five nights, fortunately the unbelievably helpful Sara found a solution we could stay at the Riad for two nights, have an excursion to the Sahara and then return to the Riad for final three nights.
This meant we stayed in all three first floor rooms and i can safely you will love any of them. Each has a unique individual charm.
I'd recommend getting a transfer from the airport arranged by the Riad it can be difficult to find but once you are there Sara will talk you through exactly where you are and need to go.
Breakfast is delicious and can be eaten on the lovely rooftop, served by Sara's brilliant brother Mukhtar who we really enjoyed getting to know. The whole family are perhaps the nicest people I've ever met and nothing is too much for them.
The walk to Jemaa el Fna is about 15 mins but walking through a less touristy neighbourhood in the Medina is actually really nice. You are left alone and you can eat where the locals do.
It was my birthday while I was there and Sara's mother baked me a cake, a bloody delicious one at that.
Everyone at the Riad goes above and beyond, the Riad is so comfortable that even moving rooms still meant everywhere felt like home.
There's no way we'd think about staying anywhere else. It is a remarkable, beautiful home away from home. Thank you so much.
