We stayed here with Simone and Meryam in April and we were over the moon with the level of care. I had arranged with Simone for a taxi pickup from Marrakech airport on arrival. I messed up with timings but she re-arranged our collection and was there waiting for us at the point where the taxis cannot travel further. A short walk thru cobbled alleyways and we were at the riad. So thankful for the advice on here to do it this way, I can imagine a real pain with someone who is not sure of the area. I had also arranged a meal in the riad on the first night, what a lovely way to start our holiday ! Meryam is a brilliant cook and the whole eating experience was an utter delight. Our room was the paprika room and was lovely and spacious on the first floor. Simone has a special way with putting the whole riad together and it had the feel of a traditional Moroccan riad but with a bit of a boutique hotel feel to it. Next morning we had a bit of a shopping list and Simone knew where to go to get the best deals and before long we had most of our list. She also took us to parts of the souk that we would never have found on our own with an interesting slant on Marrakech. We stayed for 3 nights and I can honestly say it was a wonderful experience. Simone kept in close contact by e-mail. Some of the other riads I contacted never even responded.
