I am currently sitting at the airport about to leave MArrakesh and wish to write this review as quickly as possible. I fail to believe any reviewer that gives this riad anything less than a 5 plus rating. We travel a great deal, stay In a wide variety of places from very high end luxurious to completely basic and I have never, repeat never, recieved such utterly exceptional service. From whoa to go this place pulled out all the stops. The riad is beautiful, a total haven of complete tranquility. Lying on the terrace listening to the sounds of Marrakesh whilst soaking up the last of the evening sun, leisurely relaxing in the courtyard or the beautiful lounge area with the sounds of birds quietly chirruping was completely utterly relaxing. The riad is small, hence the exceptional personal service. We shared the riad with one other couple who we never saw (they were in the suite) . We would never have know they were there. Abdel and Meena were THE most wonderful people. Nothing was too much trouble and the attention to detail from pick up through to our departure was unbelievable....the bar has been set very very high for anyone else to follow. Ron, the owner, was not there during our stay but phoned as we arrived and when we left to check all was well. It was like talking to a friend. We were very late arriving by car (wonderful photographic distractions in telouet ) and clearly he had been in touch with Abdel and they were concerned about where we were....how tremendously thoughtful. All the glowing reviews everyone has placed about lovely riad hayati are completely true.....with bells on. I could go on and on with superlatives about this place. In many ways I don't want everyone to find it but realise the entire selfishness of this approach and Ron and his amazing team deserve every success. This is hospitality at its very best.
Oh and by the way.......the previous call to prayer comments..... Rubbish. I am a very light sleeper and didn't even hear them. And if I had heard them.....they are a magical sound evocative of the beauty that is morocco and would have been welcome.
