We returned from Marrakech last night where we spent our honeymoon for 5 nights (I know you're thinking why is he on his lap top when he has just been on honeymoon!).
The riad absolutely made the trip for us. We both adored Marrakech but you can only really appreciate the manic beauty of the city when you have an opportunity to retreat from it. In terms of the riad itself, it is stunning. All the beautiful, authentic features that you expect of Morocco and a wonderfully serene atmosphere. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and there are loads of other places to relax such as the pool, the side rooms with chess, etc and the great roof terrace.
However, as with all accommodation, it is made or broken by the staff. They made us feel truly welcome and comfortable and were genuinely friendly. They provide incredible food, keep the riad spotless and give priceless advice on how best to get about, how much to tip, etc.
We will definitely return!
