My friend and I had a flying 2 night visit to Fawakay Villas and enjoyed every minute of it. It's so easy to get there from the UK and we were transported from a damp and grey Stansted to another exotic world in a matter of hours.
We were warmly greeted on arrival by Dawn and Francis (and Doris the donkey!) and enjoyed a drink and olives by the open fire near the bar area, which was the perfect start to our adventure. We then rounded off the evening with a delicious 3 course meal in our dining room again in front of a roaring fire.
Our rooms were perfect with lots of space and a nice shower plus a comfy sitting room area with a telly and open fire. A big thank you Francis for making sure we could watch our favourite tv programme in the evening!
The next day after a hearty breakfast served by the ever smiling staff, Dawn arranged a car into town and recommended where to go in the Marrakech souks, where to eat and how much to pay for taxis which was a great help as it's easy to be over charged. We had a lot of fun soaking up the atmosphere and enjoyed a superb lunch at the rooftop restaurant of Cafe Arabe, thank you Dawn!
In summary it's a lovely place to stay, we were warmly welcomed and looked after by all and I would definitely like to go again for a longer visit. We were lucky with the weather but it would be nice to go when it's a little warmer in the evenings and we could make use of all the outside facilities, as there are lots of hidden seating areas and beautiful gardens and the pool looked very inviting... next time!
