I had booked the riad based on the Tripadvisor reviews I had read. I have to say we were NOT dissapointed!
Muriel and Laurent were away during the time of our visit, but they made sure to email me prior to my arrival to let me know that their relatives/friends would be looking after the riad in their absence.
We arranged for the airport pick up which was there waiting for us on our arrival. The driver took us straight to the Riad. I have to say for our first time in Morocco and walking to the riad we were a little skeptical as to where we were going, but once we walked through the door all hesitations left us! Nelly and Guillome (not sure on spelling) welcomed us with mint tea and wonderful sweets. We stayed in the Malika room which was awesome. The room was clean and beautifully decorated.
The main courtyard where we had breakfast was gorgeous and the pool was perfect for night time when we needed to cool off. The location of the riad is perfect because you are able to walk to the Square with the hustle and bustle but then come back to a peaceful tranquil place for the night.
The unlimited Free bottled water was a bonus that we definitely appreciated. Free wi-fi.
We had dinner in the riad on our last night and it was delicious! The portions were extremely huge! The best were the cabbage roll appetizers and the triangle pastry stuffed with cheese.
We would definitely recommend this riad to anyone who is travelling to Marrekech!
We will be back one day soon!
Our highlight was our last night when after dinner we learned how to belly dance from one of the ladies on staff. Thank you!!
