My boyfriend and I spent 7 nights at Riad Opale in August. First of all the building and decor are beautiful. There is a lovely little pool (perfect for cooling off) and a roof terrace complete with a covered area and sunbeds (unfortunately they were quite stained). The room we stayed in (Saphir Suite) was nice. The bed was huge... More

Warm welcome and a clean room. Nice retreat to come back to away from the hussel bustle. Graduate couple age 23. Pros: Almost empty, relaxing, traditional, sun deck, safe, lovely bathrooms and decor. Cons: Dark rooms, no lock, poor recommendations from staff for over priced restaurants and bars... Romantic rating: 8/10 Party rating: 3/10 Location rating: 5/10

This is a beautiful location, with an amazing roof deck, and the interior is pretty with wonderfully appointed rooms and a very nice small swimming pool. There are however, a few problems with this hotel. First, while advertising WiFi, it never worked. We stayed for 3 nights and every day would tell the hotel it wasn't working and there would... More

Have just got back from 3 nights at Riad Opale. There was two families, 7 people in total, had 3 rooms so it was nearly all for us. Staff excellent, couldn't do enough for us. Breakfast simple but sufficient for our needs, kids didn't complain so always a good sign. Had dinner in house one night and it was beautiful.... More

Just got back from a week at the Riad Opale. The location is great just 15 to 29 mins from the main square and lies just inside the Medina. The staff are very good apart from the night man who should not be in the business. The rooms are kept clean and tidy and the staff are as honest as... More

This Riad is excellent for relaxation. We visited in early Jan when the daytime temperatures were a lovely 18-20 degrees making the rooftop terrace a superb place to sit with a book. The rooms, whilst a little dark, are comfortable though be aware that there is no "heating" to talk of and if you leave the a/c on in the... More

Stayed for four nights in February, I loved Marrakech and especially this riad. A friendly oasis of calm and tranquility, perfect in the hustle bustle of the city. It was easy to find and only a short walk to the Place de Ferblantiers (Cozybar, and some shops) from which you could take three ways to the main square. The pool... More

I will start my review by saying that I have been to Marrakech 7 times and stayed in both riads in the medina and large resort hotels in the new area outside the medina. The good things about this riad are: very easy to find as it's not down any narrow alleyways which if it's your first visit then this... More
