It's so funny that the reviewer before me said it was his first review because this is mine as well on TripAdvisor and it's because Nadine and Al were just excellent excellent hosts! From our pickup at the airport (seamless), to welcoming us to Marrakesh and the riad, and helping us find our way around the medina (finding snacks/food even though it was the middle of Ramadan, key places to see, shopping e.g., great places to buy babouches - Moroccan slippers, maps and written directions, etc.) - they were just so wonderful, kind, and thoughtful. Breakfast was delicious and they were so great about our dietary restrictions (I still dream about that amazing bread Nadine baked). I think a great illustration of how thoughtful these two are is when Al took me and my boyfriend on a quick tour of the main square, Jemaa el-Fnaa, I mentioned never having seen green figs before and the next morning they were on a small plate in the midst of our breakfast feast! The riad itself is stunning (and easy to find - near Ben Salah Mosque) - my artist boyfriend still remarks on how beautiful their use of local materials and incorporating and modernizing local design is. And not only is the architecture gorgeous, but the furnishings, pool (so perfect after a long hot day of walking!), and beautiful view of the sky (complete with little birds chirping!), were all so lovely. I could honestly go on about how amazing these two and the welcoming oasis they've built all are but I hope you get to experience it for yourself instead! I once read a great quote about writing reviews and it seems fitting here - I could adorn the night sky with all the stars I want to give Al and Nadine!
