I stayed here 9 years ago and was determined to come back. Have just spent another 5 days introducing my husband to this magical Riad and can only describe it in superlatives.
The Riad is made up of 8 original buildings and each area has its on charm. Quietly sophisticated yet with a feel of intimacy and friendliness. The staff were excellent and fully attentive, making us feel as if we belonged there! Other families were there and it was wonderful to see the children enjoy themselves in the different courtyards and suites. The evenings were a little cold so if you wished to leave your own suite you could meet up around the log fire in the main sitting room. Wherever you wanted to eat ( highly recommend eating in as the food is wonderful), you could chose your own room to eat, whether it be the courtyard under the orange blossom trees or by the log fire in the sitting room.
The breakfasts were spent sitting on the roof terrace enjoying the fresh produce and orange juice while watching the sun rise over the roof tops of Marrakech.
El Cadi is also situated very centrally so if you want to leave this oasis you can walk straight into the chaos of the souks.
We will be back again, only if it was just to stay in El Cadi and not venture out into Marrakech. A perfect holiday!
