My boyfriend and I stayed at Le Jardin d'Abdou for three nights during our visit to Marrakech. The riad is both beautiful and totally relaxing. On arrival we were given a tour of the riad, shown where we could relax and sunbath and was given some traditional mint tea on the roof terrace whilst we waited for our room to be prepared.
Once we had settled into our room we decided to head into the main square Jemma Le Fna and was given great directions and advice from Abdel, who mostly served us during our stay. The walk into the square is about 20 minutes, but along the way there are shops to browse and you get a taste for the more day-to-day living in Marrakech.
Dinner at the riad is a MUST! We ate here on our second night and were totally amazed by the food. We had the briwates for starters, a lamb tagine which fell apart in the mouth and poached pears for dessert. After dinner we drunk Casablanca beers by the pool (all drinks come served with warm popcorn and olives, which is a lovely addition) and chatted with the other riad guests. No ask was too much for staff, even when another guest dropped a CD in the pool after a few drinks, they were very helpful in getting out and laughing along.
Our room was lovely and well equipped, especially the air conditioning after a long day walking around Marrakech. The bed was very large and comfortable and the noise from the street wasn't too much, which we would imagine it to be if we had stayed closer to the square.
Overall, this was an amazing place to stay and a total oasis from the busy streets of Marrakech. The staff were incredibly helpful, especially Abdel who helped us navigate around the city and taught us about the local culture.
