“The building and renovation is beautiful, and really captures the elegance of the structure and the beautiful garden, whilst offering the facilities we all seek these days. What surprised us was the quality of the food, it was by far the best food we had in Marrakech.The walk to the Djemma El-Fnaa and the souks is 10 – 15 minutes, which can be tedious to do every morning but is interesting in itself.”
“My wife and I thought the Riad Samarkand was absolutely fantastic.
Pierre-Yves and the staff could not have been more helpful, the Riad was magnificent – amazing courtyard gardens, luxurious suite, fanatastic roof-terrace.
We had a wonderful time and when we return to Marrakech will try our utmost to stay at the Riad Samarkand again.”
