...'when a watermelon is transformed into Riad'...

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 20, 2007

Cracking little dar to the north east of the souks.

Good breakfasts comprising: home-made yoghurt, m'semen (square, fried folded pancakes), breads, jams, eggs (French or Moroccan omelette), tea or coffee.

Friendly resident owner by the name of Patrick.
Much of the interior is salvage from the gutting of La Mamounia so there's an unselfconscious homage to Marrakech's past as the playground of the world's movers and shakers. Instead, however, of being a slave to the past, Patrick has inserted some rather fun and appropriate modern touches mainly to be found in the photography that scattters the property and in his choice of plants for the plunge pool garden - papyrus and margherites. Plain and simple.

The only point of complaint I would have is that, despite two separate correspondances and affirmations there was not, after all, a baby cot for Archie. Luckily Archie-poo is somewhat bomb-proof and quite happy to sleep of firm flat pillows. However, I appreciate many parents might be aghast at the idea - as conditioned in our fear of SIDS as we are. If you plan to take small people jump up and down a bit more than I did - perhaps he'll get the cot sorted (it seems he shares it with another riad and forgot to say he needed it). Either way it might be sensible to do what I did and take your own baby bedding anyway...

Unique Quality: There's a rather snazzy black marble plunge pool in the garden area. I didn't use it myself but on a day that reached 39oC it was handy for 3 1/2 month old Archie to dangle his feet in. Which brings us rather neatly to child care: as super hot days aren't the best for very very small people and I had business to which I needed to attend in Gueliz I arranged to leave Poo (Archie) with the ladies at the riad. I returned some hours later to find a washed, fed and changed baby asleep in a bhous and ready to be taken to his bed. This cost me about 200dh for the services of two ladies who occupied and entertained him until he could keep his lil' eyes open not a moment longer.

On the whole pretty darned happy with the stay.

This riad does NOT TAKE PAYMENT BY CARD.

Nor does it have its name on the front door. Handy that...

Directions: To the north-east of the Medina
