    Message à l’attention de Harriet concernant le Riad ZARA - Séjour Novembre 2016- Nous nous permettons de commenter votre avis car nous résidions en même temps que vous au Riad ZARA et sommes très étonnés de vos commentaires. En effet, vos commentaires dénigrent totalement ce lieu et ne respectent pas les hôtes de ce lieu. Le Riad ZARA correspond totalement à l’esprit que l’on recherche en séjournant dans ce lieu, ce n’est pas un hôtel étoilé bien sur mais un lieu tout à fait typique par son architecture et son cadre de vie. Oui les portes des chambre ne ferment pas à clé mais c’est normal, vous êtes accueillis dans ce lieu comme dans une maison familiale où Kim, Michel et Djamila sont aux plus grands soins pour leurs résidants. Nous nous étonnons de votre remarque sur la localisation de celui-ci, oui il est à 15 minutes environ des principaux lieux touristiques mais lorsque l’on désire séjourner dans un Riad, au cœur de la Médina, c’est tout à fait normal. Grand étonnement sur la description du petit déjeuner car nous avons partagé avec vous, à la même table, notre petit déjeuner, qui était tout à fait correct : Thé, café, lait, salade de fruit, « pancake » confiture, miel, jus d’orange, yaourt. Un petit déjeuner digne de ce type d’établissement. Lors de notre séjour, Kim et Michel ont été à notre écoute, nous conseillant sur les visites à réaliser, et toujours à notre écoute. Aucun esprit mercantile sur les services qu’ils pouvaient nous rendre. Nous pensons que votre ressenti sur votre séjour dans ce lieu, ne reflète pas l’esprit qui règne dans ce Riad. Vous seriez-vous trompé d’endroit ? Il est vrai qu’à Marrakech des lieux beaucoup plus luxueux existent mais ne sont pas situé au cœur de la Médina . . . et surtout sans esprit local. Message to the attention of Harriet regarding the Riad ZARA - Stay November 2016- We would like to comment on your review as we were staying at the Riad ZARA and are very surprised at your comments. Indeed, your comments denigrate this place completely and do not respect the hosts of this place. The Riad ZARA totally corresponds to the spirit we seek when staying in this place, it is not a star hotel of course but a place quite typical for its architecture and its living environment. Yes the doors of the room do not lock but it is normal, you are welcomed in this place as in a family house where Kim, Michel and Djamila are the greatest care for their residents. We are surprised by your comment on the location of this one, yes it is about 15 minutes from the main tourist spots but when you want to stay in a Riad, in the heart of the Medina, it is quite normal. Great astonishment about the breakfast description as we shared with you at the same table. Breakfast, which was quite decent: tea, coffee, milk, fruit salad, "pancake" jam, honey, orange juice, yoghurt. A breakfast worthy of this type of establishment. During our stay, Kim and Michel were listening to us, advising us on the visits to be made, and always listening. No mercantile spirit about the services they could render us. We feel that your felt about your stay in this place, does not reflect the spirit that reigns in this Riad.

    Wow, another bad review. See, I told you...your business won't prosper by treating people poorly. Harriet, we suffered as well. Breakfast was miserable! One morning we had eggs (I think that's what it was)...we couldn't decipher if they were egregiously over undercooked or if she had put some some of runny cheese sauce on them. Agreed, there was also very stale bread and the warm yogurt. And this was the first time I'd ever stayed in Marrakesh and was never offered any mint tea at check in or with any of our meals. This was the most non-traditional experience I had in Morocco. And yes, there were no locks on the doors for privacy or security. She cheated us out of money as well....lots of money. I'm not sure why there are so many wonderful reviews....I'm assuming my standards are too high and I'm not accustomed to being treated subpar.
