This is supposed to be an upmarket Riad but don't be fooled. Only the price is upmarket.
Our room was minimalistic with hardly any cupboard/hanging space, very dark with poor entrance door. The most disappointing aspect was no door between bedroom and bathroom except for a poor quality curtain that got soaked from the shower which took ages to produce hot water.
Be Warned!!! I booked and paid a deposit in £'s. When I came to settle the final bill, I was told I could pay in cash in local currency OR if I chose to pay by credit card, the same one that I paid the deposit, then I would be charged an extra 4 percent. A bit late knowing this as you are leaving! Nowhere else in Marrackeh did I encounter this with a credit card.
To be fair, the staff were very helpful and kind and the lounge/dining room were tastefully decorated.
