We had the most fantastic time at Dialkoum!
Laurent and Muriel arranged for us to be picked up at the airport which makes the start of the holiday so much better (I am used to arriving in foreign cities and being ripped off straight away by taxi drivers). When we arrived at the Riad we had a full 20 minute introduction to the city and what to do from Muriel which set the holiday off on the right foot (without her im not sure how we would have known where we were or what to do!)
The room was lovely and fitted perfectly with our needs. Breakfast every morning was lovely and one day we even had it up on the roof! There is also a tiny pool in the courtyard which is great for coming back after a sweaty day to cool off in.
They are great at thinking about the little things at the Riad. Encouraging you to drink and handing out free bottled water at request is not something that is necessary but makes a huge difference to the whole experience of Marrkakech. Tea and Coffee is available on request at any time and you genuinely feel that Laurent or Muriel will go out of their way to help you out.
Finally the location - situated near Bab Dukhala we thought it was the perfect place. Defiantly dont stay in the new city if you want to see the real Marrakech, the location of the Riad is close enough to be able to walk to the souks in 20 miuntes but far enough out that you also feel a bit more detached. Its so nice to be able to go back to a calm tranquil Riad after the hustle and bustle of the centre of town!
all in all 5*s - cant recommend highly enough!
