This review is as much a description of Monique and her staff as it is of our trip to Marrakech.
So my husband and I have decided to write this review as a letter to Monique because that is the way she made her wunderfull riad happen.
Dear Monique, in our travels my husband and I have never found a more comfortable, loving and beautifull "home" to stay in as you provided us. All your information and advice about how to get in and around the Marrakech Medina proved to be advice we couldt not do without.
And when we returned from our "adventures" you always found time to listen and together with Zaraś and Muradś cuisine we had a romantic setting and good food to end our day,
You have a very big heart and you use it to make us feel that we were not just turist staying on your hotel but we were welcomed guests in your home.
And you planned some fantastic trips to Ait Ben Haddou and Imlil and telouet with a english speaking driver all very beautifull places. Thank you for comming with us on the excursions we really enjoyed your company.
Many Hugs and kisses. from us.
Please stay at this quiet Riad and do let Monique book your transport from the airport or where ever you are comming from. The Riad is in a very quiet little street and you wont find it without help there are not many signs in the Medina to help you in your way,
The food is especially good, try the dish with sweet pasta or maybe a tagine with quince. All her staff always go out of there way to make sure the napkins are neetly folded and candles burning all around the riad courtyard.
Everyone allways with a smile.. Do go if not for the riad experience alone then because marrakesh is a magical, fantastic place to discover and you will shop your self silly!
In all it is a very safe "neighborhood" and we had no trouble at all but do be kind when you say no to the locals when they try to sell you something. They are poor people and they mean you no harm. A smile and a kind, No merci! or maybe later will get you far and you will not have offended anyone, everyone wins!
