My mother and I recently stayed in Villa Makassar and were thoroughly impressed by the Riad as soon as we walked through the door. You would never expect such a beautiful place to be there when you're on the manic but amazing streets in the Medina.
We were met by extremely friendly and welcoming staff and the level of help and service we received throughout our stay never wavered. The riad itself is stunning, the furnishings and layout are amazing and the fact that the owner spent five years travelling the world to find them gives it a lovely touch. It is so calm and peaceful, you could easily never see another guest if you wanted to and we certainly were never disturbed by anyone despite there being a large group of women staying there at the same time!
We ate in the hotel for dinner and lunch on two separate occasions and the food was delicious, we certainly would have eaten there more were there not so much else to explore in the city!
On our fist full day Juliette organised a tour guide for us for the morning, he was a very friendly chatty man who took us to all of the main attractions, gave us some great advice on haggling, eating and where to go and what to see. He also took us for a proper Moroccan meal which was fantastic.
We also experienced a traditional Moroccan Hammam in the hotel spa where we were scrubbed to within an inch of our lives and left with glowing, soft skin. Certainly worth a try if you stay, just don’t expect it to be relaxing.
In summary, we would recommend this to any traveller, I am 28 and would return with a group of friends or a boyfriend and likewise my mother would happily go back with my father or even a group of her own girlfriends.
