"Courtyard comfort and courtesy"
Riad Jardin des Reves is a clean and comfortable courtyard hotel in the north quarter of the red-walled medina in Marrakech, only minutes down a few alleyways from the thoroughfare to the souks and Jemaa el Fna (the main square) or the gateway into the newer part of town. The rooms at Jardin des Reves are modern with traditional touches and colour. The bathrooms open off the bedrooms through an arch, with fresh water and good plumbing. Breakfast in the courtyard provides a good start to the day: freshly squeezed orange juice, semolina pancakes, sweet cakes, and soft crusty bread, good coffee, yogurt, fig and apricot jams, and honey. The courtyard terrace boasts a small pool, decorative shrubs, cactus and a lovely tree in a tub, basket chairs and lounge furniture. There's a reading and TV lounge with comfortable banquettes and cushions, books and chess, and a dining area (excellent dinners on request from the proprietor). The roof-top terrace is a special place to read, relax, and rest in the sun. The riad manager seems to work 24/7, always there with a smile, ready to assist. The proprietors, Antonio and Claudine, are very helpful with maps and directions, information etc. and they can arrange excursions if you want them. Their assistance was gratefully appreciated when our airport transfer failed to turn up and Antonio himself immediately took us to the airport.
