This riad is gorgeous , very central, rooms are comfortable and clean with air conditioning (which we needed!!) pool is lovely and cool, great for the afternoons when we were too hot in town. When we first arrived Abdou gave us a map, booked a restaurant for us and once we had settled into the room he led us to... 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

Very nice and clean room, we stayed in the sultana suite with a huge bath and 4-poster bed. The bedroom had air conditioning which was much needed after a day in 45 degree heat! Staff were very polite and helpful. We didn't try any other meals only breakfast which was very nice too, my only criticism is because we stayed... More

The food was amazing! The staff went above and beyond. One of the gentlemen even spent his time off showing us around the city, after working all night long. It was possible to schedule just about anything through the Riad from massages to henna. The ladies that work here are the nicest people I've ever met when traveling. The staff... More

Wow! What else can I say to sum up this wonderful place than wow! Well, I'll try and elaborate a little. Firstly, I'm sure you will all know that it's rare to make the effort to compliment somewhere/something, and all too easy, and more likely to air grievances. Given the tiny proportion of not so kind reviews for this wonderful... More
