I arranged a 6 night stay as a suprise present for my husband and wanted it to be a trip he would never forget. I spent hours looking at other Riads and I am so pleased I chose Riad Mur Akush. We had the best holiday we have ever had. Maria helped me plan it, giving me ideas for trips and arranging airport transfers and a meal for our arrival. Her advise was so helpful and having everything organised before we left meant that when we arrived we could just get on with enjoying our holiday.
We were met at the airport by Hussain who pointed out things of interest on our journey to the Riad. He, like everyone connected with the Riad, made us feel so welcome. We were delighted that we got to meet him again when he took us back to the airport at the end of our stay.
I cant put into words how beautiful the Riad is. Our room on the top floor was wonderful with a sleeping area, sitting room and the biggest bathroom I have ever had. We arrived late and the Riad was all lit up looking so pretty. We got such a warm welcome from Mohamed and Rachid who are just the loveliest people you could meet. They had an amazing meal waiting for us and eating it in the court yard was magical. They made us feel at home straight away. You wont find better hosts anywhere.They look after everyone so well making sure they have everything they need.
Breakfast was always yummy. My fave was when we got cake! Mohamed made sure we had all the coffee we could drink and knew just when we needed a new pot!
On our first morning Mohamed gave us a map and pointed out places of interest and showed us how to get where we wanted to go.Thanks to him we never got lost.
The Riad is in a great location. Just a ten minute walk from the Square .it is next to the Bab Doukkala Mosque so is easy to find. The call to prayer did wake us on the first day but after that we slept through it. There are 2 terraces and the court yard, all great places to sit and relax after a days shopping and sight seeing.Mohamed and Rachid were always happy to make us coffee when we got back to the Riad. The views from the roof terrace were amazing and sitting there listening to the calls to prayer was one of my favourite experiences of the holiday.
We had a day trip to Essaouira on the bus and a day trip to the mountains arranged through the Riad. Both were days out we will never forget and ones we would recommend.
Eating out was so cheap. There are lots of great places near the Riad, including a Moroccan fish and chip shop. There is a little booklet in the room which gives details of places to eat and it was really useful.
We were made so welcome by Mohamed and Rachid that we didnt want to leave! Saying goodbye was very hard. We will definately be returning to Marrakech and to Riad Mur Akush and to the wonderful friends we made
