We have just returned from a superb last minute holiday staying at the Dar Nimbus Riad. What a find!! The website for the Riad is excellent giving all the information a traveller could need. Our transfer from the airport to the Riad was all arranged and even though we were delayed getting through passport control (travellers be warned Marrakech airport is a nightmare!) our taxi was ready and waiting. Ali from the Riad met us from the taxi and walked us through the narrow streets to the Riad. Our room (Julie Gallery Right) was clean and quiet with a lovely en suite bathroom. Water was provided in the room together with excellent air con and bug zapper if needed. The whole Riad is very relaxing; we enjoyed time on the roof terrace, cooling off in the tiny courtyard pool and sipping mint tea. Fatima's cooking is excellent and we enjoyed meals at the Riad every evening. Breakfast is very minimal but delicious - travellers/visitors should expect a simple fare of bread, pancakes, jams, juice and coffee/tea, all served in the little courtyard. Ali's friendliness and willingness to show you from the Riad to the main street should not be underestimated - he's a real gem! We also enjoyed an excellent hammam and massage at the Riad. This needs to be pre-booked as the hamman needs to be heated well in advance - real value for money and very relaxing. The whole atmosphere is very home from home, no one imposes themselves upon you but are equally available and willing should you need anything. As a word of warning it might be advisable for visitors to request a guide service from the Riad - although we didn't avail ourselves of this I'm sure it could be easily arranged for a fee and would be most advisable as maps bear no resemblence whatsoever to the labyrinth and myriad of streets - visitors/travellers can become easily lost!!! All in all, a very excellent stay - I would have no hesitation in returning or recommending this Riad to friends and family.
