On our first night we were met by Thierry, he is a terrific host! We had the dinner in the Riad and it was lovely,
On our first morning Thierry sat down with us and a map to orientate us - he does this with everyone and will walk into town with you on occassions. The first time you leave the Riad it is terrifying, all the raods look the same and you are warned against all the tricks, kids looking for money to take you back to your Riad, people telling you that the roads are closed etc. But once you have walked it once, it's easy and speaking Frnech definitely helps once you are out and about.
The Riad is well located and very comfortable, the breakfasts are filling and everything is beautifully presented. You can also buy alcohol there. We happened to stay with a few other young couples and had a few boozy nights on the terasse. Abdul was exceptionally helpful and continued to serve us until the wee small hours and then served us out breakfast the next day!
Thierry went over and above the call of duty by walking us to the police station one day when I lost my wallet (see 4x4 Camel - i got it back!!) and working out payment when we had difficulties witht the banks.
My only issue was that there was no air conditioning in the rooms - but actually on the second night it wasn't an issue at all and i wouldn't have turned it on anyway.
Also I can sleep through anything but others complained about the prayer calls at 4 in the morning - i don't think you can escape that in Marrakech though - it didn't disturb me at all!!
