So many of the reviews here have described this Riad as an 'oasis', emphasising how tranquil it is, compared to surrounding streets of Marrakech... I hope this doesn't bore you, but this is going to be another of those raving reviews. It's difficult to comprehend the sense of peace, comfort and relief to be found within the safe, beautifully whitewashed walls of Riad El Sagaya without also experiencing the chaos encountered once you step outside the door. This is not to say that the Riad is in a bad or difficult location. On the contrary, it is in an excellent position, giving you equally easy access to sights both inside and outside the Medina (the walled Old City). Youssef and the other staff are trustworthy, genuinely helpful and friendly. Don't be afraid to ask Youssef for tips on anything Marrakech-related- he's as street-smart as he is refined, and will generously share useful knowledge which your guidebook neglects to mention. Everywhere you look is inspiration- the wall-climbing flowers reaching for the blue sky above the courtyard, the little birds flitting inside the house and waiting for crumbs of your simple and yet perfect breakfast. The interiors are delightful, colourful, beautiful and balanced- you can experience the traditional Moroccan design, while still enjoying the smooth white sheets and cleanliness we come to expect from a high quality hotel. If you still need help making up your mind, then all that remains is this - this Riad has my FULL recommendation. I cannot imagine anything that could disappoint you here. For me personally - Marrakech, the city of my dreams, turned out to be more topsy-turvy than I could handle. But this Riad was exactly what I wanted, and it gave to me the relaxation, friendliness, honesty and magic which I had travelled to this city to seek.
