TIP No 1 when we arrived at Airport[strange] there was nothing orginised to meet us, not knowing much French and all the locals in your face!!! it's quite daunting...........that area of the holiday needs better attention.
Taxi Fare from Airport to Riad Acacia should be 150 dirams we were charged 300dirams. We found a good taxi driver Jamal who looked after us every day and was very fair with his charges.
Marco and his wife Katia and staff met us at Riad and as you already know "nothing was to much trouble" everywhere very clean and tidy, food and we eat there for 10days over Christmas very Moroccan lots of meat and veg.
A Christmas Holiday and New Year to remember Great Choice
Trip to Atlas Mountains...........try the little local coffee places around the Main Square in Marrakesh.
Don't be frighten to walk thru the little lanes everybody friendly.

“ Acacia Riads were very basic but clean. Not alot happening within this very small complex and no where near any life! Would class this holiday purely as a retreat.

we took a taxi from the airport and once we left the main road it was all dirt track. We could not image what the place would be like. What a pleasant surprise
when the massive doors were opened. We entered paradise. It was beautiful. The pool was right in front of us and our room was clean, crips and everything we could have wished for. We were made very welcome. The breakfasts are to die for.
we did not want to leave and will be going back there, as it is heaven. Marco and Katja and their daughters are lovely people and we are very happy to have met such a nice family. Roll on next year !
“ Top Tip: hire a guide, Mustaffa was a god sent !

My wife and I have just returned from a truly wonderful stay at Acacia Villas, Marrakech. Our main reason for selecting this hotel was to escape the 'Rat-race', enjoy some quality relaxation and some sunshine. Next on the list was visiting Marrakech centre and thereafter the Atlas Mountains.
The hotel was very comfortable in a truly beautiful setting (approx 2 hectares) of orange trees, lush, green garden with an inviting pool. There were ample shaded areas in the garden and a large comfortable lounge with a full sized pool table. Occasional entertainment was provided discretely from the goats, ducks, chickens and 2 very friendly dogs, who all added to the charm of the place. Our room was clean and tastefully decorated. There was a very homely family atmosphere at the hotel and we were able to enjoy some peace and quiet together as well as chatting to others. We were very well looked after by Babs, Acacia's head waiter and managed to communicate fairly easily with our rusty 'fr-anglais'. We enjoyed bountiful breakfasts, delicious lunches and filling dinners.
Taxis to the centre, a trip to a good Hammam and a day visit to the mountains were arranged with ease. Whilst the hotel's taxi (Abdo) maybe marginally more expensive than relying on other local taxis, he is very courteous and reliable. If shopping is on your agenda, he could save you the difference many times over by first showing you the fixed price Government emporium in the centre (Kasbah) to buy local trinkets (rugs etc) before you tackle the mayhem in the suqs.
Marco and Katia, the owners, were very helpful and friendly and were keen to ensure that we were well catered for and satisfied throughout our stay.
Our stay at Acaccia Villas fully met our expectations and we look forward to a return visit; since our return to England we have also been recommending the place enthusiastically to many of our our friends.
“ Top Tip: Speaking French (or at least trying to) is advantageous in much of Morocco, including here. If you prefer to eat evening dinner at a certain time, ensure that you make the management aware of this.
