We had an absolutely amazing stay at Riad Alboraq for 5 nights at the beginning of July. Michele is a fantastic host and made us feel at home as soon as we arrived. Before leaving for Morocco, we arranged a pick up from the airport with Michele and dinner as soon as we arrived on the roof terrace. It was... More

Just arrived home after a fantastic week in Marrakech at the Riad Alboraq and missing afternoon mint tea (or Vin Gris!) on the rooftop terrace already. From the airport transfer to the welcome to double kisses on saying goodbye, Michele, Mohammed and the team could not have done more to look after us or make us feel like old friends.... More

My Girlfriend and I arrived at Riad Alboraq via Airport transfer organised by Michele. On entry we were greeted with some delicious Morrocan mint tea and Michele walked us through the Riad and gave us the low down on Marrakesh. The information she gave us was INVALUABLE. Even with all of our research, the insight she has as a permanent... More

I stayed at Riad Al Boraq with my sister for three nights and can wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone visiting Marrakech. Upon arrival we were greeted by Michele, the owner, and led down a small, quiet alley to the Riad. The location was a pleasant surprise as it allowed for us to be nearby to the Souks (about a 10/15... More

From the moment we arrived (in the pre-booked transfer that Michele arranged for us) we were made to feel instantly welcome. Michele's introduction to the Riad, the team and the city was so useful that it really helped us to plan our trip and find our way around the city. Smiro, Saida & Ayesha were amazing, the language barrier (we... More

A piece of calm in amongst the wonderful city of Marrakech! We stayed for 6 nights, the customer service was second to none! Michele, Smiro, Saida & Ayesha were all fantastic! Nothing was too much, they gave us many tips of places to go and organised trips for us, at the drop of a hat! The Riad was beautiful, from... More

My partner and I recently stayed at the Riad Alboraq. Michele and the team made us feel incredibly welcome. Our room was beautiful, with a huge bath!! Michele and the team catered to our every need, including many wonderful meals on the gorgeous roof terrace. The Riad is incredibly central and yet it is so peaceful and quiet inside, that... More

Recommended personally by a friend, Riad alboraq absolutely made our stay in Marrakech - it was exactly what we were hoping for and pictured as our 'Aladdin's Cave' away from the hustle of the vibrant city. The owner Michelle was amazing - she made our every move happen with great ease and was so welcoming - be sure to ask... More

We stayed at the Riad Alboraq for a couple of nights at the end of March. We were greeted so warmly by Michele and her lovely staff, who were overwhelmingly helpful at all times. The Riad is stylish, beautiful and very clean. It was definitely one of the best Riad's we stayed at during our 8 night stay in Morocco.... More
