I wish we were still at Riad Rafaele. All the reviews we had read were spot on. Without repeating what all other reviews have said we just want to say a very big thank you to everyone at the Riad who made our stay memorable, including the cat! Accommodation, food, breakfast, and hospitality was really good. Brilliant surroundings to make... More

My husband and I stayed at Riad Rafaele with our 9 month old daughter for 5 days in May 2014. It was an absolute Oasis of calm in the centre of Marrakech. We arranged for airport transfers which were very smooth and something I'd highly recommend as I imagine it would be quite difficult to find on your own. The... More

I hated Marrakech. It was dirty, the food was crap, the men were pervy and there wasn't all that much to do. Thank goodness for Riad Rafeal which offered an amazing tranquil escape. So if you have your heart set on going to Marrakech, stay here to keep your sanity. Oh, and make sure you take good earplugs unless you... More

A wonderful caring welcome to this exquisitely decorated and renovated riad. The tranquil atmosphere , seemingly miles away from the bustle and noise of the medina was therapeutic, especially after the midday heat. Our every need was given careful thought. Breakfast was delicious and completely unhurried

I, my husband and a friend of ours stayed for three nights at the Riad Rafaele in late April. It was a great stay, for both the service and the atmosphere. The two owners and all the staff are kind and friendly. The Riad is very nice and we really appreciated the attention to details. It's 15 minutes far from... More

The owners and staff ensured that our stay was enjoyable and nothing was too much trouble for them. They provided us with invaluable assistance and advice enabling us to explore much of the city in our 4 day stay. The Riad is beautifully decorated and has a wonderful feeling of seclusion and elegance allowing relaxation away from the hustle and... More

From the moment I stepped foot in the riad I was greeted by pleasant and wonderful people. The rooms, courtyard and overall ambiance was as if I had stepped into a story from a thousand and one nights and I enjoyed thoroughly my 8 days at this riad. They helped organize trips to other parts of morocco and found guides... More
