Riad Ma'ab is situated in the old medina. Very nice, clean and quiet accommodation. Traditional Moroccan style rooms, beautifully maintained, impressive place to stay. The owner arranged a transport to the airport on his own initiative.

After a delayed arrival due to airline complications (never going to fly with Royal Air Maroc again!), Houssain the house manager was great in rearranging our transfer from the airport to the riad in the middle of the night. We arrived at the local square, greeted by Houssain and walked with him through the narrow streets to the riad with... More

Amongst the hustle & bustle of Marrakech, it was hard to believe a place as peaceful & relaxing as Riad Ma'ab existed. Flying in late on a Saturday night, I was picked up by a taxi that had been kindly arranged for by the hotel prior to my arrival. Hussein, the hotel manager, met me at the drop off &... More

Me and my family stayed at Riad Ma'ab for my brothers wedding in May 2014 and Hussein and Murad just couldn't be any more helpful. From arranging airport transfers to taking me and my brother to get haircuts and shaves nothing was too much trouble. Fluent in English, Arabic (& I suspect French), from tea on demand to cooked BBQs... More

I had an AMAZING time at the Riad Ma'ab. I was traveling to Marrakech alone and was personally a little worried about my trip but the staff at the Riad Ma'ab put all of my fears to rest. Pick up from the airport is included with your stay which is great and always a stress reliever when traveling to a... More

We could not have asked for more from our stay at Riad Ma'ab! Hussain (the Riad Manager) and the others were very helpful and the breakfasts they served were divine! Breakfast was served each morning on the rooftop terrace which is peaceful and relaxing. The rooms were very comfortable and we really felt at home. The Riad is perfectly located... More

From booking, to train station pick-up, to local advice and attention throughout the stay, our experience was superb. The owner and local manager speak fluent English and went out of their way to assist us. The facility is gorgeous. Breakfast on the terrace was delicious. Great experience in a foreign environment that could potentially been difficult. Awesome.

We just spent the most enchanting week at Riad Maab....an oasis of calm in the middle of the excitement of the Medina. Beautiful surroundings, fabulous food and wonderful hosts. Whatever we wanted to do was graciously arranged as we explored this magical city and had adventures beyond our imagination. There is no doubt that we want to return....especially to this... More

We just returned after a week at Riad Ma'ab. So many wonderful memories to last a lifetime. The owners, John and Cindy, and their gracious staff catered to our every wish. The food was delicious and the accommodations were outstanding. The location couldn't be better! We took a cooking class along with a day trip to Essouria... and then there's... More

What a lovely experience! Walk in the door, and you're in a quiet, enchanting open courtyard leading to spacious rooms, each with modern bathroom. So quiet all you hear is the burble of the fountain in the garden. Walk out the door, and you're steps from the hustle and bustle of the souks. There's a lovely roof top terrace. with... More
