We had planned to stay two nights, but when we arrived my partner decided to make the decision one night would be enough and we headed back to the (amazingly perfect) El Fenn in Marrakech. Villa Maroc came recommended from friends and we weren't disappointed, but we also weren't blown away. We had a room at the very top off the breakfast terrace. It was a cute set up with the sleeping area up one level and a nice sitting area when you first enter the room. But, the door didn't close tightly enough to stop the wind from rattling it continuously (this was solved with a washcloth in the space). The bathroom was a little more run-down than I'd hoped to see, but other than these two complaints the riad was charming. Dinner is served tucked into various little rooms/alcoves and the food was very good. Breakfast was served up on the terrace (it's chilly with the wind, of course) and the service was pleasant while the food wasn't as good as that served at dinner.
The location is great - it's just a short walk to the beach, breakwater and you're right in the medina.
