We have just returned form a 4 night stay at Riad Karmela in Marrakesh. I cannot praise highly enough the welcome given by all the staff and the high standard of accomodation. A top tip is to arrange transport from the airport to the Riad, we used A2B who were very efficient. Once we had arrived it was a pleasant change not to have to fill in forms at the reception, instead the owner himself sat with us as we sipped mint tea, and explained the locale and best areas to visit. Each day we took breakfast on the rooftop terrace which has a commanding view over the Marrakesh Medina itself and even extends to the Haut Atlas mountains. The Riad staff arranged for us to spend a day treking including a delicious meal in a private home in the mountains.
The experience of Riad Karmela exceeded all of my expectations and is an absolute jewel in the vibrant and exciting city of Marrakesh. It is a is definately a place that we will visit againMore
