There really isn't a better place to stay in Marrakech than Riad Amirat Al Jamal. It is conveniently located just steps from the famous square and yet once inside it's walls, you are in a tranquil world of beauty and calm. Peggy Ward has done an excellent job of restoring this gem, and surely is an expert on Morocco. Her manager, Rachid Izemreten, is a personal friend who is one of the top-rated, government-certified guides in Morocco. Rachid speaks 5 languages, and he is an expert on the country. His wonderful family carry out the daily operation of this treasure of a riad. This is a wonderful place to rest, relax or a romantic place for a honeymoon. Go to Morocco. Don't miss Marrakech. And be sure to stay at Riad Amirat Al Jamal.

The riad could not be better staffed by two gentlemen who act as gourmet cook, general manager, housekeeping, luggage service, advisor about local customs. Certainly the location is ideal, proximate to the City Square with its evening buzzing with activities easily visualized as similar 1,000 years ago. The ancient walkways from the riad also lead to the souks and ancient attractions some so special they are best left to the exploratory. The conversations with staff about Berber traditions and pride at breakfast and over a splendid Christmas dinner were as memorable as all the travels. Spend one night and be charmed, spend three nights and you will be immersed in the ancient culture and traditions like you could never have expected. We had drinks at the Churchill Bar and the other famous spots but the most memorable was this less famous window to the people of Morocco. Do not miss a one in a lifetime chance to stay here.

Room Tip: Rooms on the third fllor access a roof top terrace for spectacular views of the city and the mosque.

Peggy was amazing. She planned our honeymoon through Morocco in May 2012 via Morocco Custom Travel (sorry I'm late to write this!). We couldn't have asked for a better trip to celebrate our life together.

Riad Amirat Al Jamal:
The Riad was clean, beautifully furnished and safe. The staff, including Hamidou and Sayyid were incredibly hospitable. We were happy to have fresh fruit and veggies, which were washed appropriately - as we had avoided them for the rest of the trip to be cautious. A special tagine was made for us, which was a treat. The location was perfect walking distance to the main square.

This location was the last of a long honeymoon throughout the region. We were lucky that Peggy was there. She is a wealth of knowledge about both the country and culture. She was able to answer so many questions we had accumulated along the trip.

Morocco Custom Travel:
Peggy worked with my husband to plan an adventurous 10 day trip throughout Morocco. While she usually caters to higher-priced vacations, she was more than happy to help us with our honeymoon. She even worked a few deals to get us into really nice riads. She went out of her way to make us feel special. Our trip was led by Hussein, who was incredibly polite and professional. He spoke English, Arabic, French and 2 of the 3 Berber dialects. I believe he was also studying Spanish. Mustafa was our driver. Though he did not speak English, he was incredibly nice and a more than capable driver (especially in the race-track style roads of the Atlas mountains). We traveled to Casablanca, Rabat (where we stayed in an orange grove), Fez, Marrakesh and day trips to Ifrane, Meknes, Essaouira and Volubilis. We road camels into the desert, where we watched the sunrise. After, we had mint tea with a nomadic woman.

MCT and Peggy Ward offered us a view into Morocco we could have never obtained by ourselves. Thank you!

Room Tip: The Grand Chamber Suite was so nice! It was quiet. The bathroom was comfortable with a great shower.

Peggy Ward has put together a fantastic place to stay in Marrekech . We stayed here for 4 nights in early May as the first stop on a 21 day tour of Morocco. The room was well furnished . The staff was more than welcoming. Several times we were walked to restaurants and then waled back to ensure we would not get lost. Two nights we ate at the Riad. While chicken tagging was very good , a fish pastilla we had was just out this world.

Oh that tour we went on was put together by Peggy's MCT . It was for 21 days. Every day brought us a new wonder.

Thanks Peggy.

Beautiful raid in a perfectly central location in the heart of the medina. We stayed in 2011 in the best room which was a feast for the eyes. Perfect hospitality. Marrakech and the medina is chaotic and culturally challenging for some western tourists - so it is surprising to find these amazingly beautiful raids hidden away - great contrast!
