I, my wife and my daughter arrived at the riad very late (circa midnight) on the 14th of July 2011 and our 1st impression was that is was 'fine'. That impression changed to 'fabulous' the very next morning when the sunlight literally lit up the place. It’s a gorgeous riad and one of very few that have its own 'plunge' pool (perfect for cooling down in on the sweltering Marrakechian afternoons!). You'd never guess the hustle and bustle of Marrakech was literally on your doorstep as the peace and tranquility this riad offers is just amazing!
Each day we'd have a belly filling breakfast at the riad and then set off to explore Marrakech/Morocco. On the occasions when we needed to be out early, the staff had our breakfast ready at 6.30am! The staff are clearly very attentative and can be 'on call' whenever you need them. The riad has an excellent location and whatever you need (food, drinks, souvenirs, taxis, tourist sites etc) are less than 100 yards away. The owner Alix got married a few days before we arrived and hence was not at the riad everyday however we did have the pleasure of meeting her before we left and that was lovely.
All in all we had an excellent time at the riad and it did make our experience of Morocco all the better! I’d not only recommend this riad to others, I'd definitely opt to stay again if and when we go back to Marrakech!
