Of the 3 Riads we stayed at in the Marrakech Medina this was our least favorite. I think for me that was in large part centered on the constant up-selling and added extra suggestions that started in emails before our arrival and continued throughout the stay. Of course, it's great to know what other services are an option, but there... More

We love to see that our guests take time to share their experiences with other travelers, but .... it's not good to give false information to travelers - we send a welcome email in effect each of our guests - you are an exception, walk walk from the station to the Riad ... we offer a private transfer service at...

My wife and I spent a week at Mariana celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary. We had a wonderful welcome and stay - Philippe, Fatimah and Abdou catering to our every need. The rooms are very comfortable and the riad well appointed. Fatimah cooks the most amazing traditional Moroccan food and I would recommend taking the cooking class on offer. Abdou... More

Mariana is a delight. It is a surprise when you go through an ordinary door to find a beautiful plunge pool, cool rooms and calmness. The place was charming and the ownership very friendly. I highly recommend food and drinks on the roof top. And it's walking distance from the main plaza, which made for easy exploring.

I stayed in Riad Mariana as a group of 3 girls (24 y/o) and cannot recommend it highly enough! It was great value for money, with standards inside far higher than we expected! We stayed in a room with a four poster bed and a third single bed at the side, and there was plenty of room. There was also... More

Marrakech is an unique place which I would recommend everyone visit once in their life. It's a west meets Arab/African type of place, leaning more to the latter. Though it's a site to see, at first you'll feel the chaos that is the medina. Narrow streets with merchants lined on each side, people walking through, scooters and motorized bicycles going... More

I stayed 4 nights in this cute riad. It is very quiet and located about 5-10 minute walk from the main square. The room was very nice with a big bathroom and quiet AC. I would absolutely recommend it and as other have said before, my only criticism is the lack of breakfast variety. It was very good but it... More
