I stayed in Riad Reves d'Orient with two friends for six nights in November. Even before we arrived Samira was extremely helpful in responding to questions and arranging our pick up. I had read in other reviews that many of the riads will nickel and dime guests at the end of the stay. We were all extremely pleased to see that we were charged exactly what was quoted, which also included taxes, breakfast and water on arrival, and only for those services we used and meals and wine we had. No hidden costs or fees.
The staff at the riad were exceptional by any standard. It is difficult to articulate just how helpful and friendly Mostapha and Fatima were. They were very flexible in accommodating our schedule each day, particularly last minute changes and requests. A good example is how Mostapha woke up at 5am to walk us to the meeting point for a tour we had booked on a Tuesday. As it turns out, the tour was cancelled and we had to reschedule for that Thursday. Mostapha woke up again at 5am and walked us to the meeting point just to ensure our safety. The relationship among the staff was very congenial, which added to the relaxed atmosphere of the riad. But despite this familiarity, they ran a tight ship and didn't miss a beat in providing professional service.
Fatima's cooking was the best I had. The kefta and vegetable tagines were my favourite. After talking to other tourists, I believe the breakfasts are also above par. We received crepes, bread, eggs, coffee laced with cinnamon, warm milk, honey and preserves every day and on demand.
If you are looking for an authentic Moroccan experience, Mostapha will take you the local hammam and work you over. I felt amazing afterwards and wished I had done it earlier in the trip.
The riad is also extremely clean and well positioned in the medina. It is extremely close to the souks, the square, the fandouks and Cafe Arabe. Couldn't have asked for a better location.
I have every intention of returning to Marrakech and this riad is part of that resolve. I also intend of bringing a larger group of friends to share the experience.
