We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Riad; that's two adults and three young children. The Riad manager, Siham, came and greeted us by the taxi rank, organised transport of the luggage into the Riad and was always ready to assist, whatever the need. Just a few adjustments away from excellent. For those with very young children (under 5), depending... More

We were 2 families: 5 adults and 4 children who had the most glorious and magical time at the Riad. Siham was amazingly hospitable and the stay was perfect - from the food to the ambiance to our children cared for as we strolled through the Souks. We have told so many people about this and cannot recommend it enough.... More

My family (7 of us) stayed at Riad Sekkat for 4 nights. Having the place to ourselves was wonderful and gave us a private, relaxed place to relax in between adventures in the Medina. The location is perfect ... close to the bustling tourist centers, but a little removed. The whole road is beautiful, especially the central patio with trees... More

"This wasn't just a beautiful Riad perfectly placed in the centre of the Marrakech Medina, but a welcoming home for a family of 6 : grandparents, parents, and children aged 6 and 4. Comfortable, relaxing, intimate, and fun for the children who ran freely from the top terrace (great view) to the pretty plunge pool. Valerie, Jef, Siham and their... More

The most at home I have yet felt traveling in my entire life was at Riad Sekkat. The staff are the most welcoming and gracious people. Upon our late night arrival we had missed breakfast and lunch due to an exasperating series of plain rides. It was Thanksgiving, but we weren't expecting anyone in Morocco to know that.

In march this year I stayed six days at Riad Sekkat, with my girlfriend. Last year I was there a few days by myself, and I find the place as nice and welcoming as I found it last year. I recommend it.
