The operators of this Riad are so welcoming and accommodating!
The Riad itself is fine, 4 ensuite rooms over two levels. The only issue is that the traditional style bathrooms do not have a door, leaving the bathroom and toilet open into the bedroom.
On our last night we were moved to a room with a door on the bathroom, the owners said this was to accommodate the guests that were due to arrive the day after we left (we were in a double, and were moved to a triple). So if the lack of a door would be an issue for you I suggest contacting the Riad to confirm.
The location of the Riad is fine, 10-15 min walk from the main square. The distance allows the Riad to be peaceful (apart from the call to prayer, which is lovely once you get used to it).
Breakfast is served fresh each morning, delicious assortment of Moroccan pancakes, bread, pastry, coffee and juice. Great relaxed start to the day in either the lounge area or the roof top.
The one issue is the local children. We arranged a transfer from the airport to the Riad and for whatever reason the taxi driver dropped us at the end of the road (around 200m from Riad front door) and got a local boy to show us the way. He asked for a "small gift" and when we offered around £3 we were told by the boy that it was not enough and he would be back later for more money. We told him to take the money as he would not be getting any more. Reluctantly he accepted the money and said he would be back later.
During check we were asked if we paid the boy, and how much. Despite it not being the fault of the Riad the money was offered to be refunded.
The "small gift" became a common theme throughout our trip in Marrakesh, and no matter how much you offer it was never enough.
The day we were leaving we had an evening flight, and as our room was not due to be occupied until late that night we were able to keep the room the whole day at no extra charge.
We were quite ill during our stay and the operators of the Riad were fantastic. Their hospitality made our trip to Morocco!!
