Riad Maison Africa
Guestbook for Riad Maison Africa
We were a group of 6 ladies on their first visit to Marrakech and to be honest were just a bit apprehensive beforehand. We needn't have worried though as the trip was fantastic and Riad Maison Africa played a huge part in this. We were picked up by minibus from the airport and then met by the Manager, Mustapha to take the short walk from the drop off to the Riad. Initial impressions of Marrakech are a bit of an assault on the senses with the noise, the colours and the smells and then the door to the Riad opens and its just a haven of peace and tranquility. We had mint tea with Mustapha and then dinner which was delicious, our best meal of the trip. The rooms were all great, all with their own bathrooms, and beds were comfortable - one of our party wanted to take the mattress home. On our first morning after a lovely breakfast from Fatima, Mustapha returned to check everything was okay and was kind enough to walk us to the main square - think we would have got lost without him! It can be difficult to buy alcohol in Marrakech and we had bought some at duty free on the way out but the Riad also has a stock which you can buy from. We made use of the rooftop terrace and dipping feet in the small pool at the end of a hard day shopping at the souks was delightful! From my early conversations with the owner Nick to the service and friendliness offered by both Fatima and Mustapha, we could not fault anything and would thoroughly recommend (Galleon, June 2010).
Riad Maison Africa was everything I was hoping for and more. After extensive searching I selected this riad from a large selection and am so pleased that I did. I was travelling with my husband, 3 daughters (8, 13 and 15) and my parents and wanted somewhere that we would have to outselves and that would be big enough for the 3 generations to relax in. The Riad is beautiful both day and night and the pool was a real treat as it was hot when we were there. The laptop and plug in internet for the laptops was great and a real necessity with teenagers. We had dinner prepared for us on the night of our arrival and another night and that was perfect. Lovely to have a meal cooked for us and then not have to go anywhere. Also really good for us to have use of the kitchen so we could cook for ourselves when we wanted. The manager was helpful with arranging activites including a balloon ride. The location was good. Wonderful to stay in the Medina, can't see why you would go to Marrakesh and then not stay right in the old area. It was easy to buy some basic food (water, flour, eggs as well as fresh ingredients) and we were close to the souks for shopping and watching. The owner was very helpful before the trip, organising train tickets for us, sorting a day trip and arranging for us to be collected from Casablanca (Casper, Nov 2009).
It was a lovely short break. We were greeted with a warm welcome from the start of our stay at the riad till the end. We all enjoyed our time in the riad, it's so beautiful, and a relaxing place to stay. We were all happy we picked your riad. Some of us have already discussed amongs ourselves if we ever up go back to Marrakech we would like to stay in Riad Maison Africa. We were also all happy with your staff. The driver was so welcoming and polite, your manager was so welcoming and professional. If was our first time in Marrakech and they really made our time there memorable. Many thanks Nick for being very helpful and also responding back to my 101 questions so quickly. We wish you and your staff the very best for the future. (Khadra, March 2009).
As a honeymoon spot maybe a 3 bedroom luxury riad is not the obvious choice, but we wanted space, privacy, service and luxury – and riad Maison Africa delivered it all. The local staff were friendly and unassuming, leaving us to really feel that we had the whole place to ourselves with support whenever we needed it. (Carl and Kim Nolan, July 2008).
We found Riad Maison Africa to be a wonderful place to stay for our recent family holiday. The kids loved the plunge pool and the kids ‘loft area’ in the Atlas room plus all the mod-cons of DVD player and TV. Thanks to Fatima for wonderful food and local support – and the inclusion of the local mobile phone, nice touch! Wonderful, from the (Biggs family, May 2008).
