I discovered Villa Flore on my last day in Marrakech and most certainly will stay there next time! Can't wait to go back! Three days in Marrakech isn't enough!
Tripadvisor is my best source for travel but in this case I selected an okay Riad near the top of the list/ but not as terrific as Villa Flore which was 125 on the list. Many Riads with the center courtyard have dark rooms with minimal reading lights.I asked to see a room at Villa Flore which was lovely, complete with a comfortable large bed, fantastic bathroom, and quiet location away from the main walkway. We had dinner at this beautiful small hotel with a bright center courtyard. The ambiance and quality of food was as good as it gets. The staff served the most delicious dinner and the the chocolate mousse was the best I've ever tasted in 63 years! The cost to stay is almost the same as the popular Riad nearby but the room and food were far superior at Villa Flore. Location is EASY to find...no dark alleyways to navigate! We will be thrilled to return and take advantage of the half board deal because the food is real quality without the risk of the Jemaa El Fna night market food stalls. Marrakech was worth the trip; the trains are a great way to see the landscape and meet interesting people.
