Enjoyed a stay in this delightful Riad. Staff very attentive to your needs. Wadi was especially helpful, making sure that we were well looked after and booking tickets and arranging transport for us. Nothing was too much trouble, met at airport, taken to Raid, and you certainly need this kind of support if you have never traveled to Morocco before. The rooms were well appointed, Hot shower, fruit and chocolates and a guide with lots of information to local attractions. We had a wonderful meal at the Riad. We ate out a lot but this meal was certainly one of the best in Marrakesh. You can either sit under the stars or in a wonderful decorated and charming room on the ground floor. Breakfast was also very good. Thanks to Wadi, who made our stay so lovely, we will be back.
Tips, only arrange taxis, local eating places through the Riad, Staff who have a wealth of experience and able to advise or best eating places. Also taxis are best arranged by them, or you could well end up lost and be ripped off from local taxi drivers.
One disappointment was that we hired a official guide to take us the first day around Marrakesh. Interesting to start with and gained lots of knowledge. However be warned, and the end of the morning we ended the day in local 'friends and relatives shops' with a high sell and was told this was for 'education purposes only'. This was not the case, it was clear that we were taken there to buy goods and this felt very uncomfortable and not a pleasant experience.
Also there are local well presented dressed men, who speak good English who will come up to you in the main square of Marrakesh making out they are staff from your Riad/hotel and offer to show your around. They appear very convincing, and friendly, and if feeling tired after a day of travel, it is easy to fall for this. , I heard many stories of the of people who have been caught out. They simply work on commission to take you to family shops and local eating places. Be very careful not to fall for this scam.
Best as previous stated, is to organize everything through the Riad, this proved to be our best move and certainly a least expensive one.
Thanks to all, for making our trip and very memorable one.
