When I did my research to find a Riad in Marrakech for the first few days of our holiday I could not believe how many there were to choose from and they all sound good. But how lucky were we to have chosen this one! It truly is a gem. There are few places where I can honestly say there was nothing to find fault with. The moment you step through the door you are treated as if you are the only people in the Riad. The rooms are beautiful, very clean, super bathrooms, most importantly cool! The Riad itself is calm and peaceful with a lovely pool ( larger than most Riads which usually have dip pools) which is exactly what you need after shopping or sightseeing in the Medina. But most wonderful of all, it is the staff that make this place so amazing!
Aziz, Jamal and Ismail are so attentive without being intrusive. They give great advice about where to go, eat, sightsee etc but when you return they greet you at the door as if you are coming home! There are no strict timings for anything, it just happens when you want it to!
It really couldn't be more perfect. We had 3 of the rooms but I would also recommend this beautiful Riad for large groups of family and friends when you could take over the whole place.
The location was also fantastic. When you do your research, stop at this one and don't waste time looking any further!
