We stayed at Riad Tamarakech this Apr for 3N/4D. After reading multiple reviews about this Riad, we wanted to stay here and only here. N no regrets on that end for sure. Here's my detailed review for all of u travellers planning a stay here:
a) To start with, it is at a comparatively easier location than the others we later saw while in Marrakech. As you park outside the Medina, the Riad is an easy peasy 5 mins walk away. The owner/managers were kind enough to pick us up and guide us to the Riad. It is also at a perfectly walkable distance from all the major attractions.
b)The decor, ambience the set up is so so perfect. Really! When you walk through the Medina, you will doubt your decision for sure but the moment you enter the Riad, it takes your breath away. Beautiful architecture, perfectly moroccan interiors and the whole set up mesmerises you completely. We had chosen the honeymoon suite as none other were available and aren't we glad. Not too big nor too small just perfect. Carved windows with colourful glasses, beautiful lamps, lanterns...huh.. who more can I say about the decor. All great.
c)The food served for breakfast is pretty modern as compared to the other Riads we experienced. It is actually a mix of modern breads and condiments and some local traditional items. It is served on the terrace with has a nice enough view to enjoy.We also had dinner the first evening at the riad, a Chicken tagine, and it was pretty great.
However, the house cats were a bit of a botheration and so were the flies all around.
d) Finally, the most important factor, the hosts. A very gracious and helpful family runs the Riad and they do a pretty great job. The Father who is also the architect created this wonder and his children Mukhtar & Sara run it with him. The lady of the house runs the kitchen here as well. Any questions regarding the Riad/Madina/Marrakech/Morocco, they have the answers of you. They are a great team working together to make your stay a great one.
All in all I'd rate this one a 8/10.
Special thanks to Mukhtar and Sara(both sisters) for a very comfortable stay!
