We stayed here last November: 2 adults and 3 teenagers. The taxi drive from the airport was an experience for first time visitors to Marrakech, and as the taxi driver got lost, we found ourselves immersed in the mayhem of Marrakech immediately. It had been a bit of a gruelling journey, starting in the middle of the night and we were tired, thirsty, hungry and a bit bewildered by what we were experiencing. Finally, the taxi stopped in a pretty busy and chaotic market area, and a very well dressed, well groomed man appeared, and led us down some pink alleys, into the Riad.
As soon as we stepped through the door we ceased to be careworn. A sense of calm and relaxation almost overwhelmed us, and we were led to a cosy sitting are by the pool where we made friends with a fat cat, whilst being served incredible mint tea…..and that's how it was through our stay, returning from the maelstrom of the city, the like of which I have never experienced, but loved, was like stepping through the looking glass.
Utter peace, utter calm.
The rooms were well furnished and very comfortable and, throughout the Riad, which is much larger than it appears, there were numerous wonderful nooks and crannies where you could chill out with a mint tea, which is addictive, and a book, or just nod gently off. The roof is amazing, plenty of sitting areas and the various views across the wonderful skyline, which change with the light through the day, is something to treasure and remember.
The staff were great, not in yer face friendly (thank God) but available, welcoming and polite. The breakfast by the pool was a major and significant event, the setting itself is beautiful, and they set the table wonderfully. The food was a mixture of the prosaic and the profound and there was plenty of it…….more than plenty.
I wish I could go back every weekend.
