Riad Ma'ab is tranquil, tastefully renovated and beautifully furnished. The attentive staff mean you want for nothing and their local knowledge is invaluable! We had a lovely holiday and will definitely return.

We stayed for a week over new year. Hussein decorate and bought cake and drinks for the guests for new years eve. We enjoyed our civilised breakfasts at 9am, especially the home made breads and freshly squeezed orange juice. Hussein and Sara really made us feel at home and not like paying guests. We had copius amounts of mint tea... More

soft and gentle, this riad was the quitest point of all our Marrakech trip. Hussein and his assistant was so gentle that you feel like you are at "the waiting room of the heaven". Came in without reservation, we first have been served with a cup of tea. Hussein; sympathetic but not unceremonious, was very helpfull and he gave us... More

It was a very nice feeling when someone is looking out for you when you try to find accommodation, especially when we have to book 10 hotels for our trip. Thank you John for all your prompt emails and responds to my queries. If you are looking for a place you are forced to smile to the staff or reception... More

Located in Riad Laarousse just north of the souks (markets) in the ancient Medina of Marrakech, Riad Ma'ab opened earlier this year after being painstakingly renovated to combine traditional design with modern facilities - lighting, power points, hot water, en-suite bathrooms and wifi internet access. It is a beautifully restored traditional Riad centred around a courtyard with fountain and cool,... More

What a delightful surprise Riad Ma'ab was - tucked away in the crazy hustle and bustle of the Medina, this beautiful riad is a complete sanctuary. The simple Morrocan decor in neutral tones would be difficult to surpass but the best feature was the amazing service. As I see other reviewers have commented, the staff were so helpful that we...

I couldn't ask for a better experience at Riad Ma'ab. John, Houssain, and Sara were so hospitable and helpful I almost felt bad. The Riad is completely gorgeous: the fountain in the center, the artwork and furniture, the terrace on the roof. I enjoyed my time in Marrakech but I know I will make an excuse out of Riad Ma'ab...

Our family of 11 stayed at Riad Ma’ab in September 2009, and its our honor to write this review and thank John for the amazing time we all had. The incredible customer service and attention began before we even arrived. John answered emails and questions we had within hours, and was always incredibly attentive and informative. In fact, he was... More

Riad Ma'ab is an elegant, tranquil oasis amidst the hustle and bustle of Marrakech. Set back in a quiet residential street inside the Medina, yet within a five-minute walk to the souks and Jemaa El-Fna Town Square. We stayed at Riad Ma'ab prior to the official opening so everything was brand new. The owners, John and Cindy, rebuilt the Riad... More
