I was extremely lucky to get a booking here this time round and was it worth it or what! Although I have stayed here several times before I failed to write a review (probably because I wanted to keep it a secret) however I feel like I owe the team at Timila to write about this beautiful riad and the impeccable service they deliver time and time again.
Brahim the riad manager is a warm and intelligent man who makes him self available for your every need. He not only has plenty of restaurant and activity recommendations but also heaps of insider tips when it comes to making your way round the souk and knowing the best local Moroccan places.
When its hot outside the riad's roof is the best place to be, with plenty of secluded places to lie out in the sun and shady places to read your book, one finds it hard to believe that the bustle of the main square is only 4 minutes away. Few of the small riads offer in house hamams and massages however Timila has both and what a luxury it feels like to have them! When the weather calls for a day spent inside theres no better place to be than inside Riad Timila's sitting room with the fire on and a moroccan blanket to keep you cosy. There are plenty of books to choose from or you can curl up on the enormous sofa and watch one of the many movies on offer.
The decor within Timila is outstanding, full of art and moroccan antiques without being overwhelming. There are lots of plants so both sides of the building are fresh and clean all the time. The beds are incredibly comfortable and each room has lovely windows which let in such a beautiful light when you wake in the morning. It is very easy to be undisturbed whilst staying there, there have been times when there are other guests there and we never even noticed!
Finally I must mention the food! Henia the wonderful chef delivers some of the best food in Marrakech, home from home cooking that can be fully trusted and enjoyed.
Go and stay there if you can - you won't regret a single minute of it!!
