Having just returned from Morocco and a short city break my wife and I just wanted to convey our thanks to Bernard and the team at Riad Menzeh by writing this review.
Having never travelled to Marrakech before and having poured over the guide books Riad Menzeh actually came as a recommendation who had stayed previously and said by staying here our holiday would be enhanced and they weren't wrong.
On arrival we had pre-booked our transfers through Bernard who had already answered a flood of questions I had sent him via email. On arrival in the City we were met by Bernard himself who welcomed us into the Riad and immediatly put our nerves at rest as the hustle and bustle of the lanes were in full flow.
Led into the Riads sanctury Bernard showed us around, sat us down and gave us maps and all the information we would need to enjoy the next few days. After a pot of delicious mint tea and a look around our room we were then taken to the main square and shown where a good place to eat would be for a first night and which bank we could trust to change money and use the ATMs. We walked in with another couple who were on their last night but were happy to give us tips on where best to spend our few days.
Over the next few days we felt so at home in the Riad with Bernard and his staff always there if you wanted something from a pot of mint tea to an appointment in the on sight Hammam (which if you go... dont be shy but is worth every penny).
The rooms are clean and fresh, the breakfasts plentiful and even with the onset of a night storm the Riad team even prepared supper for 6 guests one night as we didn't want to venture out.
On our last day Bernard arranged for one of the staff team (her name I remember but can't spell) to Henna tattoo my wifes hand and leg which she loved. Bernard was also happy to give us tips of where to travel in his home country of France for an enjoyable break.
In all Riad Menzah and the staff team increased the satisfaction levels of our stay no end. Marrakech is a wonderful and sensory battering city which has to be seen to be believed. Riad Menzah's friendliness and quiteness offers you the excellent escapism you need amongst this hectic city.
Go Riad Menzeh! We will be back.
