Decided on Riad Karmela mainly because of the reviews--also price was great,as was the location--after we booked we received a really informative e-mail from them and took them up on most of their suggestions such as airport transfer--as it turns out I would consider that essential unless you have been to Marrakech many times--well the ride was about an hour late--so we arrived at the Riad around 9:00am and had arranged to purchase breakfast because we were arriving that early and knew the room probably wouldn't be ready for us--well breakfast every morning on the roof top was a perfect way to start any day !! I loved the sfeng with my fresh fruit and my coffee--we received a quick orientation with a pretty good map and went to our room--It was a great room--Meriyum--large shower,good lighting,fantastic water pressure,good hair dryer and a great air conditioner !! We ordered dinner there our first night and it was really,really good--5 bowls of different cooked vegetables and tangine chicken--very nice--great service too !
Marrakech is really chaos but inside the walls of Karmela there is total peace and quiet all the courtyard areas are perfect just ask for tea and relax with a book anytime--they have 2 turtles in the main courtyard to watch and watch out for ! All the outside areas are perfectly decorated and so was our room ! Very nice!! We also had a hammam there and had them hire us a guide for one day which helped us get our bearings so we could then wonder on our own--the staff was very nice especially the ladies at breakfast-- and yes they don't always cover the food--I'm just not sure why ? We had an issue with our toilet which they tried to fix everyday but somehow couldn't quite do--we were there 4 days our last day we went to the Sofitel Hotel for a long lunch by the pool before our flight back to Spain--
