We stayed at Riad Aguerzame in March for five nights and could not fault our stay - we have not stopped talking about it to family and friends since we got back. Laurent's warm and friendly welcome from the minute we arrived to the minute we left was second to none. On arrival and after having tea and cakes, Laurent briefed us on local knowledge of the area and places to visit and see - he then introduced us to Aziz, who is most charming and helpful, and we took a walk through the alleyways of the medina (about 7 minutes) to Jemaa El Fna, this being the hub of Marrakesh - we were so grateful for this service as I am sure we would have never found our way amongst the hustle and bustle of mopeds and everyday life but after a couple of times it's not a problem.
We had our first evening meal at Aguerzame and the quality of food, wine and service was amazing. We also experienced the local restaurants!!!! Perhaps we should have paid more attention to Laurent's recommendations - but it is a worthwhile experience eating out in the main square for the atmosphere.
Our patio suite was traditional, comfortable and very clean - we really felt at home. Riad Aguerzame is tranquil, relaxing and a great get away from it all - we found ourselves soaking up the sun on the roof terrace at the end of the day.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Marrakesh but truly believe that it was due to the excellent standard of accommodation and hospitality from Laurent, Aziz and his housekeeping staff.
Laurent also offers a transfer service to and from the airport - this is well worth it as it takes out the stress of finding your own way there.
Thank you Laurent and Aziz for a truly wonderful stay - hope to see you soon.
