We have just returned from a magical trip to Marrakech made more magical by staying at the wonderful Riad dar Sbihi. Run by the most professional yet warm and friendly couple - Sybille and Saad.Riad dar Sbihi is in a residential area of the ancient medina and is like being transported back to mediaeval times, sometimes you do almost feel you are intruding on a way of life unchanged for centuries just by walking through, I certainly felt it was appropriate to dress in a manner respectful to the Muslim community here by covering shoulders and legs when passing through this area.
The Riad is peaceful, beautiful, food amazing and has an attentive yet discreet approach to hospitality, I stayed here over my birthday and it was one I will never forget . Would never stay in a hotel in Marrakech having stayed in such authentic and atmospheric accommodation.
Thomson (who we booked through) were non existent, we were given a number for the rep if we needed him rather than him coming to see us, so we booked a guide and driver locally which was a far better experience than an organised coach trip to see the sights. We could manage our own time and visit places at our leisure. Thank you Sybille and Saad for a fabulous time we hope to see you both again before too long .............
