We recently traveled as a couple to celebrate our 3rd anniversary— and could not recommend the place more. Our experience began with lovely email and phone exchanges with the owners, Daniel and Richard. We would stay at the Riad Tizwa both in Marrakech and in Fès, making our Morocco experience very convenient to arrange. They arranged for us to hire a driver to take us from the Casablanca airport to Marrakech (and he was delightful, his name is Miloud and is also a knowledgeable tour guide). When we arrived, late at night, the lovely Hassan was waiting for us with a candle-lit spread of mint tea and almonds, followed by an incredible dinner up on the terrace (we had asked him for a favor, since we were starving from our trip—and he made it happen last-minute, even though dinners usually must be arranged in the mornings). He knows how much we thank him still for this! The next day, we met the amazing Mohamed, who manages the Riad. In him we found an invaluable person who took care of everything for us, from getting train tickets to Fes, to making restaurant reservations, to setting up a drive to Ourika valley—all with the best disposition, sense of humor and delight. Thank you Mohamed! Mallika and Aziza were also bright smiling faces during our stay. The location is perfect, right by Rue Mouassine as an entrance into the souk. Kudos to Richard for the gorgeous design of the riad— the rugs, the linens, and the amazing lighting were absolutely beautiful. They provide babouches and bathrobes in each room; and every morning, when you wake up, you can count on a tray of coffee and tea (kept hot in great thermoses) to be waiting for you at your doorstep. You can have breakfast at any time of day. Candles are everywhere. You feel at home. It is this sense of detail that makes Riad Tizwa Marrakech stand out. I would go back in a heartbeat, and would recommend it wholeheartedly!
