I’m sure it has been written many times before but Les Jardins Mandaline really is an oasis of calm in the colourful, exciting, occasionally infuriating city that is Marrakech. Situated in the Medina, it is approximately a 10-15 minute walk to the main square (if you know the way, of course!). Everyone who works at the riad is lovely, friendly and more than happy to help.
On our first night we arrived at approximately 1am but were warmly welcomed with mint tea and biscuits. Our room was not extravagant but very comfortable with plenty of storage space and a well-stocked bathroom. It also has air-conditioning which is essential in summer months (temperatures got up to 38oC while we were out there).
The rooms are cleaned every day and fresh towels are provided. There is a lovely, refreshing plunge pool – perfect for when it gets too hot on the sun terrace!
Breakfast is included and consists of freshly squeezed orange juice, tea/coffee, a daily-changing selection of Moroccan breads/cakes. Reasonably priced dinner (€10/12/15 for 1, 2 or 3 courses respectively) is also available, freshly cooked on site. We only ate once but the Tangia (a Marrakech speciality) we had was absolutely fantastic. Plenty of times throughout the week fantastic smells emanated from the kitchen so I can only assume everything else is equally as good!
Taxis can be arranged through the riad and I would highly recommend doing so, especially if you are not familiar with Marrakech. Once you’ve got the hang of where you are though you realise just what a fantastic location the riad is in – very close to the souks, but far enough for it to be quiet and calm. Wifi is available, though a little patchy it is usually possible to pick up a signal somewhere if necessary!
Will appeal to everyone from singles and couples to families. All in all a perfect retreat, couldn’t ask for much more really!
