Booked a girls trip to Marrakech to celebrate my birthday and it wouldn't have been nearly as wonderful had we not booked at L'Oriental Medina & Spa!
The staff at this Riad were extremely accommodating and caring, that by the end of the trip they felt like extended family- specifically Elias & Abudl!
As soon as we checked in, Elias gave us an in depth guide of Marrakech on the map, providing us with thorough directions to the Souks & Place Jemma El Fna. Honest recommendations were made on where to go for affordable and good meals, as well as what things or paths to avoid to ensure we did not get scammed.
The whole team really went the extra mile by walking us to certain shops and booking us personal taxis to ensure we were given an honest rate. Even the chef came in an hour early to make us breakfast upon request when we made them aware that we had an excursion before their breakfast start time.
We came as a group of three girls and shared one room, but not once did we feel it was too small. Both our double and single bed were extremely comfortable; and the sheets, towels and toiletries were changed every day.
While we did not have treat ourselves to the spa or ate at the Riad for lunch/dinner, we thoroughly enjoyed breakfast as it was different every morning and appeared to be traditional Moroccan dishes. Abdul always greeted us with a smile & poured us the loveliest of teas.
Would recommend this Riad ten times over! Conveniently placed and amazingly run.
