Reviewed February 22, 2007

My group of 18 ladies have just returned from a fabulous 4 day trip to Marrakesh, taking over the riad Dar El Assafir in its entirety for 3 nights. All arrangements were conducted directly with the riad over the internet and, despite my reservations, all went without a hitch. It seems to be 2 riads knocked into one, certainly there are 2 courtyards filled with exotic flora and fauna and, as it's name translates, it is a 'house of birds'. There is a decent sized pool in one courtyard, but it was not heated and was too cold for us in February. The riad itself is beautiful and packed to the gunwhals with traditional Morroccan artefacts. As we had the whole riad to ourselves, we were able to look at all the rooms and none were disappointing. The suite would be ideal for a family. The manager, Jibril, was a wonderful host, nothing was too much trouble. We requested dinner there on the first night and came down to rose-strewn candlelit tables in the courtyard. Jibril also arranged a huge cake for 3 of our birthday girls. We asked for a guide for one of the days and by sheer stroke of luck, we must have ended up with the best guide in Marrakesh! Ahmed picked us up from the airport in 2 minibuses, stayed with us for virtually the whole time, organised everything on our itinerary, from caleches that picked us up from the riad, trips to the Majorelle gardens, Sa'adian tombs, a hamman, the souks (including haggling on our behalf ), the Atlas mountains where we took mint tea with a Berber family and lunch in a wonderful restaurant with spectacular views, a meal in the Square followed by a nightclub where 18 seats were reserved for us. He even turned up on Valentines' Day to take us back to the airport armed with a red rose for us all! The combination of the riad, guide, weather and wonderful city of Marrakesh combined to make this a truly memorable trip. The riad and Ahmed deserve recognition for their excellent service. On behalf of the whole group, I wish them both every success. Contact Ahmed at --------- (he speaks 7 languages!).
