My stay at Ryad Dar Ganou was in honour of my hen party, 6 of us (from the UK) travelled and stayed there together. We had the entire Ryad to ourselves and we were blown away by the service, friendliness and extra mile Veronique, Marc, Mohammed and Noel were prepared to go to in order to ensure our comfort. No request for help or information was too big or small.
Veronique organised reasonably priced activities for us that we were keen to experience and took us into the Medina on our first day to show us the square, souks, cash machines, bureau de change, good places to eat in the square and the way back to the Ryad.
Marc took us off the beaten track to a village that makes many of the items you can find in the souks, he looked after us all well and had a brilliant sense of humour.
Mohammed was always willing to help and offer his service with a friendly smile and gave us information about places to visit in Gueliz when we fancied a night out.
Noel took special care when cleaning and tidying our rooms, each day the bed was laid in a new refreshing yet ornate style.
Veronique and Marc's little dog was really cute and friendly.
The Ryad location is perfect as we were right in the centre of the Medina so very close to the souks, the square, the Marrakesh Koutoubia Mosque, taxi ranks, bureau de change, cash machines and a 20 - 30min walk from Gueliz where you get to see the Medina wall from the other side. Yet when you close the door to the Ryad you are in a tranquil peaceful environment - just perfect after a day in the vibrant souks and intense Medina.
When we left Marc took all our bags to the taxi rank for us and both Veronique and Marc came to wave us off as we left to return home. It was such a lovely touch and felt so sad to say goodbye to them.
I will definitely go back to Marrakesh and for me there will only ever be one place to stay here - Ryad Dar Ganou.
Thank you again Veronique, Marc, Mohammed and Noel and bless you all!
