Travel Blogs from Marrakech
My travel blog calculates how many miles I have traveled. The current total is over 8,500 but truthfully it feels like a lot more. I have a little over a week left, it is hard to believe but my trip is nearing the end.
We arrive in Marrakech via train from Casablanca. Our first class ticket afforded us first, a seat and second, an …
... we have explored, Africa is a place where the beauty of the natural world overwhelms, catches you in the throat. You enter a transformative space that fosters an awareness of your astonishing insignificance on the planet. There is a touch of melancholy as we jet north. However, we are extremely fortunate, unfairly privileged and immensely grateful to have glimpsed the southern reaches of this magnificent ...
March 4th to 8th, 2014 On our return to Cape Town we easily slip into the rhythm. We head to the grungy but colourful Woodstock neighbourhood. We gather with the hip rainbow nation at the Old Biscuit Mill. Local designers sell a wide variety of fashion accessories and housewares including messenger bags made from recycled brown paper and chic bamboo framed sunglasses. This creative entrepreneurial spirit is helping to transform the quality of life for ...
... next was a jigsaw and the last was a memory game in which I helped with.
While we were singing at the beginning of the project a young boy (around the age of 15) came in and got in front of the younger children and entertained them, singing and making them laugh. I assumed he was another helper of the centre, till later on when we got the colouring books out and I noticed him in the far corner of the room with his headphones on and a colouring book. He ...
... and performances across Jemaa El-Fna without the stress of being pounced on.
Despite the intensity of the square, once you've left you find yourself wishing you were back amongst it all, and the thoughts arise 'If only i'd done this..' or 'If only I'd done that'.
Keep your eyes open, your wits about you, take plenty of pocket change and limit your valuables... Jemaa El Fna is a must see for anyone visiting Marrakech.

Historical Traveler Reviews Riad Al Massarah Marrakech
We spent 5 fantastic nights at this superb Riad. There was a taxi waiting at the airport and then the owner Michel was there to guide us through the bustling Medinah to the Riad.
We have just come back from Marrakesh last week after spending 5 days in Riad Al Massarah and will be definately returning soon! We were collected from the airport and taken to a nearby Mosque and met by Michael one of the co-owners who directed us to the Riad. We could not believe our eyes after the front door to the Riad opened - what a beautiful place which has been lovingly and very tastefully restored by the 2 owners Michel and Michael. We were very well looked after and felt totally spoilt and pampered. The bedrooms are georgeous and full of lovely little touches - this is a very homely Riad - which includes a cosy log fire and library which is lovely to retire too after dinner for drinks or a day out. Food is excellent all prepared freshly by their own cook Fatima and the staff looked after us really well. The owners have lived in Marrakesh a few years and are extremely helpful in recommending places to visit, restaurants and assisting you with any questions you may have! Not only is this a beautful place to stay, we were really made to feel at home with their very warm hospitality. I would highly recommend staying here and definately try having a hamman and gommage (body exfoliation) for a total relaxing experience.
I've just returned from a 3 night stay at Michel's equisitely refurbished and restful Riadh. Perfectly located in the Medina (old town) on the outskirts of the souk, this Riadh is truly a haven from the madness outside; shut the door and enter a different world. Michel is an incredibly attentive and caring host and he and his excellent team really made our stay. He even put me on the bus to Essouaira and then called in the evening to make sure I'd got there! There's a hammam should you prefer to experience your first 'gommage' outside of the public baths and the food we ate here was the best of our trip (the homemade yoghurt at breakfast and the fish tagine a particular highlight). There's a great library to browse, open fire to curl up to (it can get chilly in the evenings), terrace for sunbathing as well as very comfortable and beautifully furnished rooms. Don't hesitate to book, this place will do well.
Having decided to go to Marrakesh, we wanted to stay in the medina. We found Al Massarah and are so glad we did!
I have recently returned from a wonderful 5-night break in Marrakech, which I visited with a good friend. This was somewhere that I had always wanted to visit and it certainly did not disappoint.
If you have an opportunity to visit Marrakesh do not let it pass you by - it's a truly magical city and I think Morocco was almost as pleased to see me (for my spending power) as I was to see it!
A friend and I have just returned from a 5 day stay in Marrakech and wished we'd stayed longer, due in no small part to this riad.
Nous avons passé une merveilleuse semaine dans ce riad, réhabilité avec beaucoup de goût et d'authenticité, dans une atmosphère de calme et de sérénité. Chambres très agréables avec literie excellente. Les petits déjeuners sont excellents, copieux et chaque jour différents. Les dîners préparés par Fatima ont été très appréciés. Les propriétaires, très sympathiques, ont tout fait pour nous faciliter le séjour et le rendre très agréable.

My friends and I stayed in this beautiful Riad for four days in November (2 couples). It was an amazing place to stay and really made our time in Marrakesh memorable.
