It was such a joy to stay at La Maison Arabe for so many reasons. Not the least because during the Christmas/New Year period this year it was pouring with rain and quite chilly in Marrakech. It was heaven to come home to glowing open fires, beautiful floral arrangements, fresh tangerines, a welcome cup of tea or stiff martini.
In truth it is probably more boutique hotel than riad but the Moroccan detail and atmosphere is everywhere, the choice of restaurants and the quality of food, the free wireless internet, the charm of the barmen and all the staff makes it a true stand out. Maybe in better weather those things may not have been important but during my stay, I really valued those comforts and the high level of service and the variety of facilities offered in house. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming and the staff of which there are many are so unobtrusive and delightful.
It was too cool to swim but it has a beautiful pool on site and another just out of Marrakech which would be divine in the warmer weather - a great break from the madness of the medina. All age groups were staying, singles, couples, some families and all nationalities so it was really a delightful experience.
