We spent a couple of days in the Riad Baladin and enjoyed it very much. In the morning you woke up by the noise of the sea and the seagulls and then started with a great break breakfast. From there you could dive "prepared" into the Medina. There was no problem that our daughters could go out as well (14, 16, 19) without company of the parents.
The Riad gets just the right amount of cool air during the night which makes you sleeping well. Beds and bathrooms are charming. There is nothing I missed.
The big plus comes as well from the stuff and the management. We got a lot of help. We got picked up from the airport and a lot of good locations to go when we started our round trip from here. Nicole gave us great locations. Actually Nicole could even organize a round trip and its worthy to contact her before you come to Morocco. She also organized a rental car for us and the owner was very kind. When we dropped the car in Marrakesh he brought us to the next location the and saved us an ugly ride with all that luggage.
Comment: very common in Morocco is cash and as well the riad wants to have cash. Not a problem, there are a lot atm's around there. I recommend to bring enough Dollar or Euro, we got mostly only 2000 Dirham from the atm.
AT the end I recommend to stay only two nights in Marrakesh and instead of that more nights in Essaouira. Marrakesh has very bad air pollution and the smell of motorbikes follows you everywhere.
