We have just returned from a 4 day break, we were so thrilled with this Riad. We had a room with a private terrace that had a gate to the roof top pool. The room was beautiful, lots of little touches (morrocan slippers, candles, hand made soaps) and was spotlessly clean. Marrakech is so noisy and bustling it was a real pleasure to return to the tranquility of our Riad. The hotel arranged a day in the Atlas Mountins which is a must they are so beautiful. We paid for a taxi and then for a guide to take us on about a 4 hour walk in the mountains. They arranged for a donkey to meet us with a picnic lunch, which made us feel like royality. You can really appreciate how lucky you are when you see how the Berber people live, but they all seem so happy and very welcoming (the total cost of the trip was approx £120.00 but well worth it!). We ate at the Riad twice I had the same meal each time because it was so delicious. We also eat at Dar Moha and Bo Zin. Dar Moha is very traditional food which if you don't like Morrocan food this is not the place for you. Bo Zin had a good atmosphere, the service could have been better, my Husband had chicken kebabs which when arrived were raw inside, they did change them but without an appology which was a bit annoying.
We were very keen to leave a good tip for the staff on departure. They were all so curtiously and helpful. In the past we have added money to the bill to be split between the staff, in this case that do not have the facility to do this. We were told as we were leaving that there is an envelope in Reception but by this stage we had little currency left.
We went for a hamman at La Sultana which is a member of the SLH chain, this also looks good but I would still choose Villa Des Orangers every time. Can't wait to return!!!!!
