Morocco - Recommendations for Riad web bookings

Has anyone booked riads in Morocco on the web? We want to book riads in Marrakech and one other city, but want to book through a reliable source. Many riads are small and don't have their own websites.

We'd also consider booking by phone if we can see photographs on the web; again, any recommendations would be appreciated.

I booked a 3 night at Riad Clémentine stay via Terre Maroc (http://www.terremaroc.com/language/gb/index.html). The site is great with loads of photos.

Our query was sent via the site to the riad by email, and the riad then called us directly to arrange the booking.
Highly recommend this riad by the way.

Hanl - which room did you book? Did you see any others that you liked?

Kate, we stayed in Room 3 if I remember rightly. It was lovely and cool and pleasant (in August, the midday temps soared above 45 degrees centrigrade).

Before booking, we had narrowed our selection down to a few riads on the Terre Maroc site (we only considered places with a pool as we were there in the height of summer).

From what I can remember, we liked the look of Riad Esmeralda and Riad Lena as well. In fact, I think it was simply the name "Clémentine" that tipped our decision in favour of that particular Riad! We just thought it sounded nice...
