We Stayed for 7 nights in August 2016. This Riad is lovely. A tranquil oasis hidden amongst the dusty old streets in old town Medina. Highly recommend organising an airport transfer with the Riad before you arrive otherwise you may not find it. The driver carried our bags right to the door. The Riad is peaceful and very beautiful. We stayed in a suite and it was gorgeous, Air con, Fridge and safe included along with an amazing shower. We just wanted a chilled out time to relax and this placed delivered. We spent our days relaxing on the roof terrace, lounging by the dipping pool on the ground floor and our evenings out in Marrakesh.
Sara and her family who own the Riad are very helpful and attentive and offered much help. The Riad is a 15 min walk to the main square and this walk is very exciting offering a true glimpse into the culture of street markets and locals lives in Marrakesh.A Highly recommended Riad
Breakfasts at the Riad were huge and we did not need to eat again until the evening.
It may be worth stocking up on drinks and snacks for your room as these are not easy to get during the day when most places are closed and often so is the Riad kitchen.
We went on one excursion to the waterfall in the Atlas mountains, this is highly recommended and worth the 2.5hr drive as it's a whole day excursion exploring the waterfall, going for a swim and then a late lunch. (take swimming gear and good walking shoes as it's tough walking for some sections)
If you want a traditional Riad experience and unparalleled peace and relaxation then this Riad is for you. You literally cannot hear a thing from the outside world except the distant call to prayer and the trickling of water into the dipping pool.
We hope to return one day when the Riad is extended to include Hammam
