Went with my wife in May of this year and this hotel is amazing! The hotel itself is beautiful and peaceful, and the rooms fantastic. Our room was big and well equiped, and located close to all the local attractions. The staff are so helpful and friendly, and made us feel at home. They went out to change money for... More

Literally just returned from a stay at Villa Makassar and was so overwhelmed by Souheil the Director and his wonderful team that although its close to midnight I wanted to right this straightaway .

I can't really praise both the staff and setting of Villa Makassar enough. My boyfriend and I stayed here for 5 nights and have just come back today. We'd never experienced staying in a riad before and weren't sure what to expect. Upon arrival we pulled up into a small, busy street within the medina walls of Marrakech. The unassuming... More

The hotel is situated in the old part of town (Medina area), literally 10 mins walk to Jemaa el Fna. You have to go through a few small roads to get to the hotel but after a day or two you will easily find your bearings. The hotel itself is immaculate. The owner really took care in designing this place... More

All of the staff were really helpful and gave us good advice and recommendations, booking taxis, restaurants etc and made us feel very welcome.

Villa Makassar is a beautifully tranquil riad in an excellent location in Marrakech. It is beautifully appointed with care in the Art Deco style, obviously a passion for the owners. The rooms and bathrooms are spacious and the rooftop is a quiet spot for lounging and breakfast. The staff were extremely attentive. The hammam was one of the best that... More

I recently spent four wonderful nights at Villa Makassar. It was my third visit Marrakech but the first time I had stayed in a riad, and I can honestly say that it was an amazing experience. As a fan of Art Deco, I was in awe of the beautiful collection that villa possesses, particularly the pieces from La Mamounia. The... More

The owner and staff really make you feel welcome! It is quite evident that the owners have invested a great deal of money in the Riad and each room is wonderfully unique. I would highly recommend Villa Makassar to anyone visiting Marrakech.

This is a long review, but I have so much to say and I promised it is worth the read! Arriving at the huge beautiful door outside the alleys of Marrakech gave away little to what paradise I would find inside. My husband and I travelled from Toronto (via Paris) with our 3 boys ages 3, 6 and 8. After... More
