My mother & I had a memorable stay at the Villa Makassar in December 2011. We used a travelzoo voucher to treat ourselves to a trip to Marrakesh with a stay at a luxury riad :) Villa Makassar is situated down a slightly noisy street in the Medina, but you would never know it as its a quiet zen of a place once you walk inside.
The voucher was a fantastic offer as it is a very beautiful art deco riad, beautifully laid out with its own indoor pool and hammam. The deal included dinner as well as a hammam. Dinner was delicious; canapes, chicken tagine and a delightful pastry dessert called Ktefa. Our waiter was particularly attentive and very friendly and helped teach us some arabic words to get us by during the stay :)
We had a lovely twin room. We had a problem with the shower as it didnt have hot water but as soon as we reported it someone came to look into it immediately and when he couldnt help the charming owner came round to investigate. We were promptly given a key to another room we could use for the duration of our stay to use the shower there (even though our shower was fixed the next day).
Our hammam at the riad was a fantastic experience. Do not leave without having one!
On the whole a delightful stay in Marrakesh.
