As we got out of the taxi the look on my husbands face was a picture. Stunned at what looked like a a warren of small tunnels. As we walked through the tunnels we saw the entrance to the Riad Aya.....formidable a place of tranquility with beautiful rooms and the attention we received from the staff; Maria, Majda, Abdul and the owner Madame Michelle was without doubt one of the best experiences, we are well and truly hooked by Maraakesh and the Riad Aya. Maria's care and attention to our needs was outstanding, we stopped in Marrakesh for five nights and were spoilt by the superb food prepared and cooked by Maria on three nights. We miss her already, if anyone really wants to see the real Marrakesh then Riad Aya is the place for them.
The terrace and plunge pool were relaxing and secluded and we were able to purchase drinks on site, we did leave the Riad to visit the souks and markets which were all within walking distance and took trips to the cascades seven lakes (walked to the first one only but it was beautiful) and Casablanca (courtesy of Jamel a worldly wise and interesting gentlemen who catered to our every whim). Jamel organised two meals out which were again superb. Yes we would definately stay there again.
