Spent a week at Riad Menzeh to celebrate our Golden Wedding. We chose Marrakech because we wanted somewhere different and we were not disappointed. The Riad was a fantastic experience. Hidden away in the alleyways of the Medina in a local area which was just what we wanted in order to experience the real Marrakech. We felt very safe at all times going through the alleyways and found the locals very friendly and welcoming.
Bernard was a wonderful and attentive host he went out of his way to make us welcome as did Jamal and the rest of the staff.
Our room was the Menzeh suite which was the biggest room, highly recommended, it had everything we required and beautifully furnished in good taste.
Jamal's breakfasts were gorgeous, fresh orange juice, freshly made bread, pancakes, strawberries, different jams, tea or coffee, plus pieces of cake if you were still hungry. We did two trips which meant an early start each time so we would have been happy to miss breakfast but Jamal insisted and got up early to make sure we got our breakfast.(How good was that!)
So glad we did not stay in the hotel zone which is in the new town we would have felt cheated and it was quite a treck from there to the Medina. On arrival it can be a culture shock in the Medina but after the first day it becomes a wonderful experience. You soon get used to sharing the narrow streets with donkey carts, motor bikes, bicycles, horse drawn carriages, not to mention the people walking along, especially at night when everyone seems to be going to the square. On numerous occasions when walking back to the Riad locals would tell us we were going the wrong way to the square and we had to tell them we were going 'back home'.
Don't suppose many older people would choose Marrakech for their Golden Wedding celebrations but it was perfect for us we loved the whole experience and Bernard made it really special and enhanced our holiday .
