This was our first visit to Marrakech. We travelled with our 11 year old daughter. Laurent and Aziz were the most perfect hosts and helped make our visit easy and special. We pre-booked the ride from the airport (strongly recommend you do this). Laurent sat down with us on once we settled in and reviewed a map of Marrakech. He also graciously walked with us to the Jamaa al Fna (main square) so that we could orient ourselves and ensure we would not get lost coming home. Laurent and Aziz made suggestions on places to visit and even restaurants we might enjoy. They can help you with any excursions - we took a camel ride and Aziz lined up everything for us. Leila is an amazing chef!! We ate at a few restaurants but honestly, Leila's cooking was as good as a restaurant. The riad is located close to the restaurant Pepe Nero (recommended by Laurent), in a stunning riad with both Moroccan and Italian menus (we ordered from the Italian menu and found it delicious). Each afternoon, we came home to our friendly riad and were welcomed with Moroccan mint tea and cookies. It was a peaceful, wonderful experience. Our room (on the second floor) was large enough for the 3 of us, and the private bathroom had plenty of hot water. The rooftop terrace was also a wonderful place to relax. If you want to shop, I recommend you walk through the souks for that Marrakech experience. For the most part, however, the best prices are found at the Ensemble Artisanale, where you can see handcrafted local goods sold at reasonable prices (without the need to haggle unless you wish to - all goods have pricetags on them). The riad is walking distance to the Ensemble Artisinale. Laurent and Aziz strive to make your stay enjoyable and stress free. The first morning, they even asked other guests to stay quiet so our daughter could sleep in! They were flexible on when breakfast was served, recognizing that when you are on vacation you don't want to have to wake up at a certain time. Breakfast was tasty and hearty every morning. Everyone was gracious and warm, both to my husband and me as well as our daughter. I strongly recommend the Riad Aguerzame!!
