The transfer arranged by the riad waited for us, in the airport, for almost 2 hours during which we waited and complained about our luggage. As a result, we entered Vanilla Sma almost at 2:00 a.m. starving and completely frustrated with our luck. Nelly, the wonderful host and Redouan, her assistant, were waiting for us and made all the difference! In a minute, Redouan went to the kitchen and came back with great food while Nelly took note of all airport details to trace our bag the next day. She also advised us on all the places we should visit and the restaurants where we could experience the local food without having digestive problems.
The next day we woke up on a lovely, charming bedroom, had a marvelous breakfast and went to tour Marrakech knowing that everything was being handled to get our bag as fast as possible. And so it was ... :) At the end of the day, Nelly arranged a transfer so that we could collect our bag (as RAM does not deliver the bags!).
We do recommend the riad hamman (specially after coming back from the desert!) and a dinner cooked by Redouan!
The riad location is perfect as it is 5 min way from Djemal El Fna.
In the end, you get the perfect stay! That's what happens when you run a business with your heart and a great team. Congratulations Nelly, we look forward to go back!
