We booked with Bernard and the package offered including transfers, a meal with wine and days guide in the Atlas Mountains was excellent value. Bernard was away but Jamal the Manager couldn't of been more helpful. All the staff at the Riad are excellent and the service is 100%. The Riad is peaceful and so relaxing. Breakfast is delicious and the meal cooked for us when we arrived was the best we had - would recommend especially if your arriving later in the day. Ours was a very short trip only 3 nights but we really packed it in - picked up first morning at 9am for quadbiking and camel ride with Marocexpo which was fantastic with lunch in a Berber village, returned at 6.30. Jamal booked for us to go to La Comptua a popular restaurant in the new city (which is such a contrast to the Madina) very rich area, scared we were going to have to pay a great big bill but infact the food is average price and good. The main reason to go there is for the belly dance show and musicians which came on at 10.30 - try and sit upstairs to get the best experience. Next day picked up 9am for the days treking with Sadir in the the Atlas Mountains, arranged by Bernard - what an amazing time. You walk approximately 18km firstly to Sadir's house for refreshments, then up into various landscapes and lovely views. We stopped off for lunch at his friends place up high - again lovely food. Then onto another relatives village where we watched his friend down a hole in the floor making taguines (he makes 80 per day by hand). If you want to really see Berber life you must do this trip - good footware required and fair fitness level. We finished off with a quick look at the Madina - this was not for me but I know shopping is a big draw in Marrakech and many enjoy the thrill of the hussle and bustle. You are treated like VIP's at this Riad and as friends also. Thank you so much to the lady who did my Hammam in the Riad too - I really enjoyed it even though I was very quiet - in shock a bit! All round a fantastic experience and wonderful people. Thank you Jamal and your friend (sorry can't remember his name but so cute) and the lovely cook!
