I'm so pleased I stayed at Riad Rafaele during my stay in Marrakech. With it being my first trip to Morocco and as a solo traveller I couldn't have been in better hands. The staff are super-friendly and will do anything for their guests. The rooms are cosy and spotless and the atmosphere absolutely tranquil. The location is perfect for... More

After hearing rave reviews from a good friend, my boyfriend and I recently visited Morocco as a bit of a new year treat and to celebrate my birthday. We were tempted by a Thomson all inclusive holiday, but after doing some Tripadvisor research, I booked us into Riad Rafaele for our week stay and it's easily one of the best... More

A beautiful riad in the heart of Marrakech, Riad Rafaele is a truly exceptional find. Recently restored in 2014 this riad really is an oasis in the midst of the hustle & bustle of the souks in the centre of Marrakech. Usually opting for boutique hotels, this choice did not disappoint. The attention to detail is fantastic, from the ceiling... More

A charming place but most of all a staff that will do everything to make your stay comfortable! Didier, Hakim and Hisham took care of excursions, dinner, refreshments and airport transfer, all for reasonable prices. The riad is beautifully furnished, tastefully decorated, and immaculately clean - bring your slippers and give your weary feet a break, no need to wear... More

We stayed at Riad Rafaele over Christmas and had an amazing time. The staff was incredibly helpful, and helped us arrange both taxi and trips. Breakfast was great and we also enjoyed a very good Moroccan dinner one night. The riad was beautiful and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay there, and would not hesitate to return! Thank you Didier, Erik... More

This riad has been beautifully restored and decorated with gorgeous Moroccan furniture, ceramics and fabrics. The staff are most helpful and the food is wonderful -- we very much enjoyed sitting outside in the courtyard eating freshly prepared Morrocan specialities. All in all, a really lovely place to stay.

Stayed at the Riad Rafael early December and had an amazing experience. Didier, Eric, Hakim and their team are wonderful and it felt like home from home. If there was anything you needed then nothing was a problem for them. I would definately return in a heartbeat.
