An oasis in the madness of Marrakech, fantastic and attentive staff, friendly bees, and a great atmosphere. The old town is an assault on your senses, and it's nice to see the contrast with modern morocco with funky restaurants and bars. The Sky Bar at the Pearl Hotel is not to be missed.....a expensive swim, but great view and ambience.

A wonderful Riad in the old part of Marrakech finished to a good standard. The level of service from the staff and manager were second to none, a truly top class team. We ate in the Riad one evening and the food was fabulous.

To date this is the best hotel we have stayed in. The location is spectacular and you really feel like you are in the middle of an ancient Morrocan city. Prayer calls from the nearby mosque adds to that impression. The rooms, food and service is outstanding. Dine at least once in the hotel, the food was some of the... More

We enjoyed a four days stay in August, our suite was spacious and very comfortable - the bathroom is incredible if one likes open spaces and modern design. The service and attentiveness of the staff was excellent - the manager Sandy speaks English. Overall very well maintained riad, clean and charming atmosphere.

We just came back from this riad, a traditional Moroccan home run as a small luxury hotel. The service was great and the staff there were very helpful and kind.The spa was excellent and relaxing ... the best massage I have ever had! We particularly appreciated the location - merely 10 minutes walk to the Square - the generous food,... More

We have been with friends to Riad Olema and had a wonderful time. Great food, great location, great staff, in short, a great riad. We loved the set up, so charming and refreshing. The riad features 2 inner courtyards which makes it very comfortable in particular the one with the plunge pool.

It has been a so great stay and experience. What a wonderful surprise to open the front door from this beautiful riad and to discover a peaceful retreat. The staff and Sandy, the manager, were very helpful in advising places to visit or restaurants. We also loved the riad's in-house restaurant, specially the traditional "couscous".

In January, my husband and I stayed at the Riad Olema in Marrakech. It was so nice and the staff was very pleasant and helpful. They have a nice rooftop area to sit and have drinks, or in warm weather, perhaps dinner. We had a nice dinner of tajine that was very welcome after our nightmare of trying to find... More

This is one of the worst rating we have received since our opening more than 4 years ago. You are mentioning that the staff is great as well as the food , and you... More
