This was a phenomenal landing from a freezing Britain and a hard few months work to celebrate a special birthday. The choice could not have been better. We had 3 full days plus one evening and had a packed programme of activities all helpfully planned by hotel staff. The welcome was warm without being intrusive, the roof top where we ate our delicious meals was dream-like; the views across the skyline of the medina and away to the High Atlas could tempt you to stay there all day.
We were so close to the Luxor Gate that this was ideal with a 5 minute walk to the main square and just 2 minutes into the souks but also 2minutes out of the medina and into the more modern quarter of the city where we found a fixed-price covered market ( a bit of a relief if you've had enough of haggling in the souks.)
We had a half-day trip out to the Atlas mountains which the hotel organised for us and we had a wonderful day out.( Rachid our taxi-driver was helpful, chatty, informative and a good driver!) In the riad we took advantage of their amenities by having a hammam and a massage and the staff here were delightful and very attentive. The gastro menu
evening was superb and the variety of tastes a delight. We also took a morning's cookery course which led us into the hotel kitchen and even out with Omar to the local communal bakery oven where we left our bread to be picked up a couple of hours later.
The staff were helpful, polite and always hit the right balance between formal attentiveness and friendly conversation; Si Mohammed the night waiter was so friendly and helpful he even spotted us leaving when he was outside off duty and came over to help with the bags and wish us a safe trip home!
The atmosphere was enhanced by the carefully chosen music, and in your room if it was ever not to your taste you had the option to change the play-list or even turn it off. The rooms were luxurious and beautifully designed, again, if there hadn't been so much to do you could have been tempted to stay there and chill for hours. The morning coffee was a treat for me as a regular coffee drinker and a well-chosen variety which even converted my wife! Clearly a lot of time has gone in to establishing Maison MK locally as there were a couple of local shops who knew the owners and one even gave us a discount! A wonderful stay in glorious surrounds - for me the roof-top bar with the minaret lit up and the wood-fire crackling in the brazier sharing an apero and then a late night snack with my wife was the absolute tops. Thanks a million !
