Riad al Massarah is one of the best properties I have stayed at, ever. Staying there is a truly amazing experience.
The entrance is dramatic--after your car enters the city walls, your host meets you and you walk into the meandering passageways to the riad. There, behind a closed door, you are seated with mint tea and sweets in the courtyard away from the hectic scene in the streets. Your blood pressure drops 10 points as you are lulled by the quiet of the courtyard.
The room was lovely, with beautiful decorations and an indulgent bathroom that was strewn with rose petals when we came. The hospitality was amazing--our host was warm, knowledgeable and exceedingly helpful with recommendations on where to go, how to navigate Marrakech and even gave us a few helpful Arabic phrases. I felt that any questions I had were efficiently and competently answered. When I returned and was unable to stay at the Riad, our host arranged for us to stay at another fantastic property.
The location of Riad al Massarah was great--as soon as you exit the front door you are in the passageways of the medina. The central square is an interesting and entertaining 15 minute or so walk.
Breakfast on the roof was wonderful and indulgent with a spread of juices, mint tea, bread, yogurt and honey-covered Moroccan "pancakes". The massage and in-house hammam were wonderful. Overall, I give my highest recommendation Riad al Massarah for a truly unique and relaxing experience.
