Like the other posters, I choose this Riad, because I had heard great reviews about the English owner. So it was my birthday and a girl's weekend to celebrate. Simon (owner) phoned and listened to all my crazy ideas and made suggestions copying in the Hotel Manager. Now having stayed all over Morocco I wasn't overly confident that anything would... More

Big thanks Aine for taking time to write a review. Some excellent photographic Facebook/Laksiba posts, thanks again. Especially your depiction of Patricl Lichfields "Paul and Talitha Getty" shot with yourself and Abdelhamid (he was delighted to participate). We look forward to your Easter 2013 family booking if you can organise flights/dates. Best regards Simon. Riad Laksiba More

A truly wonderful experience, from start to finish! Simon, was particularly helpful, with our booking, organising any trips we wanted, suggesting restaurants, etc. As a group of 6 women, looking to experience a bit of an adventure, Marrakech, ticked all the boxes!! The staff at Riad Laksiba are professional, considerate and will do all they can to ensure your stay... More

I stayed here on my own for 3 nights in September just gone and would recommend the place to absolutely anyone. I was mildly apprehensive going on my own to Morocco but I couldn't have had a better trip, mostly thanks to Riad Laksiba and the people there! Beautiful Riad, great location, FANTASTIC food and as if it could get... More

Thanks Rachel, we too enjoyed your company. You fully immersed yourself in Kasbah living and really got to go native with both locals and the ex-pat circuit. A truly interesting Guest with great stories. We very much look forward to your return visits. All the very best. Simon xx Riad Laksiba More

Me and my sister stayed here for 4 nights in September, and it was honestly one of the best things about our entire trip! Firstly, the Riad itself is beautiful, clean, cool, all you could ever ask for. The location is really nice- in the Kasbah region, it feels safe, is well lit and policed. Even as two young ladies...

I stayed with my girlfriend for a week this summer, the staff were extremely helpful and accommodating. Tours can easily be arranged to the waterfalls or other cities. The main square is a short 10 minute walk away where locals sell there goods, this is where we ate each night, my advice would be to pick a stall and just... More

We stayed for my friends 40th Birthday. We hired the whole Riad for 3 days. From the moment we arrived to the time we were dropped at the airport we were treated like super star guests. Nothing was too much effort to arrange or produce at the last minute. Believe me we where a demanding set of guests and the... More

From the second we arrived to the second we departed, we felt completely at home in this gem of a property run by a fantastic team of friendly staff who looked after us so well.

Thank you for your kind words. The Home Cooking seems to be a hit all round. At Riad Laksiba we only offer Moroccan Home Cookery, typical of what Nadia and Raja would prepare at home for their own families. Lamb, Chicken, Vegetarian Tagines (Slow cooked in a special stoneware "Tagine Pot") with Salads, local bread and swallowed down with the... More

Riad Laksiba is one of a kind. I had heard about all the bad experiences from friends that had experienced staying in Riads in Morocco, so was more than pleasantly surprised by the fantastic service we received at RL. We were collected from the airport by one of the staff and shuttled to the Riad within 15 minutes to a... More

We arrived in Marrakech suffering from various stages of food related illnesses and it was great to have such a calm, relaxing place to stay. It was easy to find and perfectly located just inside the medina walls (in a quiet area) within a short walk from the main square. With eight of us in total we had the riad... More

If you really want to experience Marrakech, I have three words for you: book a riad. In fact, I don’t have any hesitation to expand on that and tell you to book Riad Laksiba. My family and I stayed here for four nights this July. The medina was unlike anything my young daughters had ever experienced and though they loved... More
