Detailed review by Anne-Mariel
After trawling through a number of hotels and riads in Marrakech, in spite of there being only two Trip Advisor reviews at the time, I found myself drawn to the newly established Riad Al Ksar. Following a 6 night stay, my gut feeling was not to be disappointed. Just a stones throw from the Palis Bahis and 10 minute walk to the main square (Jemaa El Fna) it proved a real sanctuary and antedote to its bustling surroundings. The passage leading up to the riad is dingy but safe. The staff, especially Damien (one of the owners) could not have made us feel more welcome, and the riad itself is striking both in its architecture and style. Real attention to detail was shown and the service superb. Having left a snowy UK behind, we were also lucky enough to take breakfast on the roof terrace, a real sun trap with views to the Atlas mountains. Add to this, wonderful homemade food (French and Moroccon), we ended up eating our dinners there 3 nights! And trust me as a real foodie, it was up there! The spa has yet to be finished but will just enhance it and it would be great to return once complete. I have no doubt that Riad Al Ksar will be enjoyed by any guest lucky enough to stay there.
