Our time at Dar Massai was absolutely perfect. The staff went above and beyond to be accommodating - from serving us breakfast whenever we requested, to arranging a driver for a day trip - they really did a fantastic job and were so kind. We also had a delicious dinner there on the first night. The Riad is charming and... More

This riad is an oasis of calm and is a really beautiful building. The staff were so welcoming and kind, especially Youssef who gave us a map and pointed us in the right direction re places to visit. This riad is very central, being only a 10 minute walk from Jemaa el Fna and the souks. On arrival we were... More

Just returned on 23 june after 5 days in marrakech on a Hen (bridal) party where we stayed at Dar Massai. Overall the riad was very nice with friendly and efficient staff including Yousseff who was exceptional. On our first night our flight was delayed and despite our late arrival, everyone was very friendly (including the patient taxi driver that... More

Would not recommend this hotel for families with children as the atmosphere is one of silence and serenity. Yes, the property is beautiful and well designed and very calm ( apart from the Mosque beside them) but stay there with children...at your peril. The Moroccan staff are very friendly but the French lady who owns the property asked us to... More

Everything was great! Charming Riad! Youssef was really helpful and pleasing. We will repeat again when we go to Marrakech next time. Riad location was really near the main Square and you can go by feet.

I cannot thank Youssef and the rest of the Dar Massaï team enough for the amazingly wonderful stay my friends and I had there. Everyone was so friendly, communicative, helpful and accomodating. The riad itself is absolutely beautiful and quietly nestled in the middle of the kasbah (where there is also much to see and do) and within walking distance... More

A very peaceful, non intrusive, haven. We stayed for 3 nights in the Blue room, which was kept spotless during our stay. We could have done with Tea making facilities and a mini fridge, that would be my only improvement. Breakfast on the roof terrace was lovely with different pastries, pancakes, jams etc. If this is not to your liking,... More

Excellent all round. We don't usually eat our evening meals in hotels but arriving late we pre-booked a meal for the first evening. It was extremely good, as good as the expensive restaurants in Marrakech so we ate there a few times during our stay. Yousef and all the other staff were very friendly and helpful but not intrusive. This... More

My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful stay at this riad in February. The food, service, and room were wonderful. Like most riads, our room faced inward but we had plenty of light. The room was cozy and had an en suite. There was ambient noise from other guests, but it was not a concern as everyone was considerate. Further... More

Such a beautiful Riad, relaxing plunge pool, nice terrace and fantastic staff. Youssef organised a day trip to the Atlas Mountains such a treat, the guide was wonderful. The food in the Riad was great the lemon tagine was a highlight! It was a great base for exploring Marrakech, excellent air conditioning in the rooms. After long days walking and... More
