Agree with everything that has been written before: great food, very friendly helpful staff, terrific location but perhaps we were unlucky with the other guests. For the first few nights of our stay there were no other guests and it was perfect. Then a large party arrived and they were up all night shouting and laughing with no considersation for... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to write your review on your stay at the riad that could be very successful if you had not been with disrespectful guests towards the end of your stay. I was really sorry for you to read your comments, and I immediately asked the night watchman to enforce the silence at night... More

Wonderful Riad with amazing staff (Mohammad an Fouad in particular!), delicious food served in beautiful surroundings. Could not fault the place and great value too! Lovely plunge pool for when it gets too hot, beautiful public seating areas around it for a drink or breakfast/lunch/dinner and a fantastic rooftop area for sunbathing! Quiet and peaceful with stunning rooms and bathrooms... More

A beautiful riad, feels like a sanctuary - you would not believe you were in the middle of the Medina and so close to the souks! A peaceful haven with delightful, attentive people in attendance. Everything about it was just right.

The Riad is a beautiful sanctuary in the Medina, just minutes away from the Souks. The staff is really attentive and very friendly. We stayed there for three days with our two teenage sons, who enjoyed cooling down in their pretty but tiny pool. Each room is individually and quite tastefully styled, and for moroccan standards very clean.

Hello, All the staff joins me to thank you for your kind comment. We are happy that you have enjoyed your stay at Riad Pachavana. I know that the pool is not big but there are few riads in the Medina which have a pool, even tiny. This allows at least cool off when it's hot. We hope that you... More

What a lovely property, beautiful accommodation and friendly staff. The bedrooms are very spacious with gorgeous bathrooms. The public areas are very comfortable, great to take a cold beer or glass of wine in, and by the pool is a lovely area to take breakfast. The sunbeds on the roof terrace are very private. We had dinner on our first... More

Well located, beautiful and with very helpful staff. They wrote in advance to organise the airport transfer which was nice! Didn't dine there but the breakfast was great. There were a number of good cafés nearby and it was only a short walk into the souks

Beautiful riad in quiet back street, not far from taxi stop. Staff extremely helpful and friendly, gave directions to find main attractions. Lovely food - an oasis in the wonderful madness of Marrakech.

We had an amazing stay at this riad, every detail well thought out and helpful and gracious staff. Highly recommended, we had transfers organised through riad and a meal on arrival night this was well worth doing.

Spent six nights at the pachavana with my daughter who booked the break for my birthday. Lovely home from home with helpful staff who made our first stay in Morocco so enjoyable - recommended places for us to see and advised us on how to barter. The holiday was everything we wanted and more.
