My friend and I stayed in the Duplex room for 3 nights in March. This room suited us perfectly as plenty of room to dump our things and a two sinked large bathroom which was great for two girls. We had our own small roof terrace which again was great for a glass of wine and we were lucky enough to have a fridge and mini bar. We were lucky enough to look at the other rooms and I think if I was to go with my husband I would choose room 3 very large and romantic. The Riad itself was great very peaceful with lovely room terraces commanding fantastic views including the Atlas Mountains. As people have previously written you go through maze/rabbit warren type walkways to the Riad and can't believe what lies behind the door, but a spotless beautiful unusal place to stay and a fantastic welcome awaits you. We ate lunches and one dinner at the Riad which was brilliant. I would say the Chicken Tagine was the best of our stay and that included eating at Le Topsil one or Marrakech's best restaurant. Pretty pricey but very good and atmospheric. Peggy the American Owner and her staff of Fatima. Pal & Harmidau (apologies for miss spellings and pronounciation) were fantastic. Peggy is very knowledgeable and helpful we even phoned her during a crazy shopping trip to see if were paying over the odds & she was great. Great manicures and pedicures from Fatima on the roof terrace. The two guys again were helpful, discreet and respectful. They would even walk us to restaurants and meet us afterwards, kind of like a free walking taxi service.
Marrakech itself is crazy but a truly great experience. We found the further you went into the Souks the better price you could achieve and the less hassle you got. We were nervous to start with as so different to the UK, but soon felt safe and I must say we had great fun bartering. I would give the Marrakech Museum a miss absolutely nothing there of interest at all. I would definately return to Marrakech and do a day trip to the Mountains and I would stay in Al Jamal Amirat without a hesitation and would recommend to all.
