We decided this year to have a week away at Christmas time - something different....so we chose Marakesh and the Riad Minorisa. We arrived in Marrakech later than expected due to a flight delay....but our driver was waiting patiently for us. Soon we were on our way to the Riad...Abdul was waiting for us when we arrived....and he carried my case for me the short walk to our accommodation . We were given mint tea and sweets while Abdul checked us in...he then gave us lots of information about Marrakech ...ie what to do and see but there was no hard sell on trips etc..just lots of good information. The room we were given was lovely...colourful and comfortable....toiletries and hairdryer etc... small fridge..and Wifi.....We slept well and got up next morning to a lovely breakfast consisting of coffee.. fresh orange juice....fresh bread and honey...and on a couple of occasions fried eggs.!....Abdul was always on hand to help....We booked a trip to the Waterfall while we were there.....which I found challenging to say the least....it was a hard climb to the top but well worth it......We would definitely come back to Marrakech and stay in the Minorisa.....Don't be out off by the maze of alleyways and streets etc....leading to the Riad.....as this normal in an Arab quarter......and it was perfectly safe....and only a 15 mns walk to the Medina .....and the shopping...and you soon get used to all the haggling ! It does get a bit tiresome ...but its part of the fun !...There are also shops with fixed prices ... .Take a good pair of walking shoes as there is lots to see and do..and perhaps a thicker jacket or cardi for night time as it does get a bit chilly......there is a train station about a 40 minute walk away...but there are also buses and taxis available...make sure you agree the cost before you set off. The are lots of nice restaurants in and around the Medina....and some selling wine...but it can be very expensive..!
