We enjoyed a memorable long weekend escape to Marrakech, with this riad as our home base. Dar Les Cigognes was the perfect riad experience for our first trip to Morocco – full of charming traditional touches!
Loved – The beautiful décor throughout the riad (a photo opp at every turn!). The landscaped rooftop was the perfect spot to start the day with breakfast and end the evening with a nightcap. The daily breakfast (included in the room rate) - outstanding presentation (I ended up buying a set of blue/white pottery to take home with me to try and recreate the experience) and perfect selection (fruit, fresh squeezed OJ, café au lait, and a basket of breads/pastries). Location was outstanding – within the medina and within convenient walking distance to the key sights.
Disliked – Bathrooms were modern, however our shower didn’t drain correctly so we ended up bathing in inches of standing water each morning. Guest rooms don’t have proper door locks, so if you’re hyper concerned with safety this may not be the place for you. Our room (Berber), and others located on the ground floor, only offer windows facing the interior courtyard so it can be a bit dark.
Suggestions – Would have liked to be able to see 2-3 different rooms and then choose our preference. While we loved our Berber room, we were preoccupied with curiosity about what our other options might have been. I would suggest asking when you check in.
