Staff, location and welcoming
The stay was ok. Nice staff. It is quite an acoustic space. Requires most guests to be on the same schedule. Not the place if you want to sleep in and have lazy mornings.

A hidden short whirlwind

The interior setting, staff friendliness and service.
The Riad is a great option - but by far the biggest issue is finding it. You should call the Riad before arriving. Being a seasoned traveller, I knew of the potential for difficulties from "friendly" locals. We caught a taxi from the airport, who dropped us off at the closest junction, and he told us to walk the rest of the way. Depending on how you see it, the "friendly" local boys will aggressively suggest they help you navigate into the streets. Of course the fear is that they will lead you into an incorrect Riad / demand a fee / harvest your organs. If you end up choosing this Riad, you MUST call them before arriving, and let them know to meet you at the Junction. Forget trying to find it yourself as there are a series of dark, winding hidden and somewhat scary alleyways. Google Maps shows the incorrect location. We followed Google Maps there, walking 10 mins followed by 3 aggressive locals all claiming to represent the Riad. It's quite stressful. The actual Riad is beautiful inside. The staff and owners are friendly and they make sure you have a nice stay. This is a great pick for a memorable trip to Marrakech.

Perfect location&hosts felt like friends

The warm welcome. The staff would attend to your every need. Rooms are large&comfortable
Positives- welcomed with transfer pick ups&greeting from the parking with short walk to Riad. We were greeted by Rashan (hope this is correct saying) &his wife who were always smiling, friendly&welcoming. They spoke little English, therefore we mainly communicated with nods&gestures, but we got by. Had no official greeting from the manager? Unlike all the other reviews. I think we passed him on the stairs, but he did not officially introduce himself- which was a shame! The staff can not do enough for you here! Particular thanks to Abto who on several occassions escorted us to different places&picked us up Rooms are amazing! We stayed in the Green one- large double. Bathroom tub is huge! You always feel as if the staff are out to help you! Even if they struggle to communicate- shame the manager can not pay for them to have lessons as they are such lovely people. I would not recommend booking tours through the Riad~ we did this x2 & had trouble. On the desert trip to Zagora (2 nd we had to drive around another 450km (14hour drive) then due to the language barrier the drivers boss rang asking if we could lend him £50 for fuel & he would give it us back. When we go back the driver didn't understand us when we asked for money& he said "Riad, ask Riad" We tried to sort it with the Riad (as we did book through them) &still did not get our money back! As we were told we had to pay this. The communication barrier was hard& it looked bad on the Riad, although we know it was not the staffs fault, they did their best. However I feel the manager could have possibly been around more to resolve issues such as this. I would not have booked this tour if I knew there would have been problems& I feel they took advantage of our trusting nature to lend the money.
