It is not easy to find a city break with something for a 12 year old daughter, 22 year old son (and his girlfriend), and their holiday control freak mum (me) - I searched for ages on the internet, all the riads in Marrakech that I had previously stayed at being full, and stumbled upon Maison MK.
It felt like a bit of a compromise - no swimming pool, just a plunge pool, and would they really make my 12 year old feel welcome given that they don't accept kids under 12? I held my breath....BUT - what a joy, and what a great find. From the moment we walked through the door, we relaxed - all the usuals - beautiful rooms, great location - but what made it really special, was the little touches and the staff. Mobile phones pre loaded with numbers and credit, i pods, rose petals, drinks left outside your door in the morning, a bath you could swim in, the most divine rooftop terraces, I could go on and on - nothing was too much trouble, the brilliant staff seemed to anticipate our every need - escorted us to taxis (untold hassle for me in the past in Marrakech), and most of all, made us feel like very esteemed family. We took the cooking class - completely brilliant - lovely little spa - where we were pampered - and in the 34 degree heat, we did indeed plunge in the plunge pool! The best food that we ate was at the Maison MK - the tasting menu was divine, and had something for everyone (even the 12 year old - can you believe it?) - a must visit, whether you are lucky enough to stay at the riad or not. I can honestly say, that I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Marrakech, my kids - of all ages- feel the same, and I am trying to think of an event where I can manage to hire all 6 rooms......Bravo Maison MK - we look forward to seeing you again!
