I can only confirm all the good things said about this riad. The philosophy that the owners run it by is spot on, and you do feel instantly at home. Marrakesh is such an assault on the senses that it was great to have somewhere like this to return to before heading back out into the Medina. The owners Laurent, Muriel and their staff were great, with good advice on how best to enjoy your trip. The rooftop terrace is amazing for sun worshippers but as I am not one I found the little shaded seating areas lovely, and the cool waters of the plunge pool were perfect for a refreshing dip. It is tucked away somewhat, but just look out for the pile of sand (don't think it'll be going anywhere soon) and you know you're nearly there. A couple of tips, deal with the Riad directly rather than a booking agency. I had transfer issues that thankfully Laurent sorted out. And take enough Euros to settle up with, I nearly ended up looking very silly!
