We were a family of three with an 8 year old daughter looking to expand her knowledge of non-european culture. We picked the perfect base for this to happen.
At the airport we were met by our driver and driven into the city. Upon arriving at the drop off location we were met by a hotel staff member Ismail and 2 baggage carriers, less than 5 mins easy walk to the Riad through the winding medina streets and we arrived at what can only be described as a stunning boutique hotel and a brunch/snack along with a cool drink to welcome us.
We stayed for a week in the Jasmine room, it was an ideal suite split over 3 floors, the ground floor having the bathroom, the middle floor a king sized bed and the top floor the master bedroom leading out onto a private balcony.
Service is important when I’m looking for somewhere to stay and I was not dissapointed in any way. We agreed that this can only be compared to a michelin starred restaurant in hotel form. Noting was too much trouble but at the same time the staff were not imposing or pushy in any way.
It is a 10-15min stroll to the main square but is easily remembered how to get back to the Riad, especially as you are guided on your first trip into the city by a member of the hotel and are also given a mobile phone to use for any questions or help needed during your stay.
Our daughter fell ill with a 24hr stomach bug/fever midway through the stay, the hotel again went over and above what you expect sending out a staff member to go buy a thermometer late on a Sunday when the city is closed and offering to take us to the hospital if we needed.
The breakfasts were fantastic with a huge amount on offer: fresh fruit, cake, bread, pancakes, eggs.. the list goes on. Snacks such as Omlette, Salad etc. can be ordered during the day and it is definitely worth reserving the home cooked meal, the tagine was delicious and the portions large.
The balcony/terrace areas are perfect for relaxing on those days when you feel like a break from the busy city centre life and the small courtyard pool is ideal to cool down in.
The overall feel of this Riad is luxurious, calm, relaxing and perfect. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this to stay and I would certainly return again if I was in Marrakech.
