Our family of 5 recently stayed at the Riad Alboraq over Christmas for 5 nights. Michelle the owner and her staff lead by Mohammed were really fantastic. We liked the location in the Medina. Our rooms were comfortable and we enjoyed using the living rooms area downstairs. One night our family picked one of the DVDs from their selection and... More

The Riad is well located on the Medina and after you get your head around it, it is quite easy to go back and forth walking to the main square. The Riad is beautiful and has that lovely Moroccan Atmosphere, great shower, welcoming staff, great assistance.

The staff at the hotel are fantastic. Very warm and welcoming and extremely helpful. The breakfast was delicious and the wifi worked well. However, the facilities leave something to be desired. There was no hot water and it is a very loud hotel. It is directly next to a mosque so the call for prayer at 5ish in the morning... More

Had a fine stay, but rooms could be better. Especially the doors which are too thin and have an opening on the floorside. You can hear everything and everyone snoring. Also you smell smoke in the rooms. When the swimmingpool is closed all autumn it's less romantic than on the pictures. Staff is very friendly.

Stayed in this lovely little Riad on our last 2 nights in Marrakesh. Despite many of the staff not speaking English they tried their best to make us feel welcome. Enjoyed some mint tea and refreshments on arrival and then we met the wonderful Mme Michelle who gave as an excellent tour round the riad and showed great hospitality towards... More

As soon as you walk through the door, you will find Riad Alboraq a relaxing and welcoming place to be. Michelle, Mohammed and the rest of her staff do everything possible to make your stay as comfortable and tranquil as possible. As others have commented, Michelle's expertise regarding trips out and places to visit is spot on. Our room was... More

Delightful staff and management. The best we had in Morocco. Michelle ' s recommendations were spot on. Beautiful rooms with fantastic attention to detail. A real oasis in the middle of some madness. Only reason for 4 instead of full marks: location- whilst still in the Medina it is quite along difficult to find way from the main square and... More

The riad is very charming and is an oasis of tranquility in the crazy Medina. Lovely aromas in the main living area. Michele and the staff are very friendly and helpful. A couple of reasons why not the full 5*: - Location is down a dingy alley way. A little unnerving if you are arriving late at night. - Rooms... More

My girlfriend and I stayed for 4 nights in early November. Absolutely loved our stay in Alboraq - the riad was beautiful and so relaxed, the location was great being slightly out of the hectic souks, the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful and Michele was a brilliant host who went out of her way to give us recommendations, make...

We had a delightful stay at this Raid, a retreat away from the hustle and bustle of the streets. Tucked away in the tiny lane ways of a local area. On arrival Mohammed had organised a beautiful meal on the open air terrace and Michele a detailed local overview to the area and places of interest, priceless. Our stay was... More
