Riad Rafaele has been beautifully & authentically restored by it's owners, Didier & Eric. When passing through the front door from the busy & noisy streets of the Medina, it is as though entering another world. The enclosed courtyard, with it's central fountain, plunge pool & orange trees, although open to the heavens, is a tranquil oasis. The owners &... More

We were drawn to Riad Rafaele by Didier write up and some of the reviews when we were looking for somewhere to stay in Marrakech. We arranged transport from the airport with Didier and was met by Hakim who helped us with our luggage. On arrival to the Riad, Didier and Eric welcomed us and introduced their staff. When we...

I have never written a review before but felt I had to after such a wonderful stay. I travelled with my daughter and we arranged transport from the airport with Didier - this made things so easy and hassle free. The riad is wonderful. Traditional, beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. Didier and Eric are perfect hosts, making you feel very... More

This place was a beautiful Oasis hidden in the hub of the Medina. The welcome into their home from Didier and Eric was the start of a wonderful stay. We arrived late, airport transfer pre arranged and had dinner prepared for us, one of the best traditional meals of our trip. The Riad is beautiful day and night and I... More

I have just spent a wonderful and exciting week at this Riad open the main door and walk into a beautiful oasis and be greeted by the charming hosts Gidier and Eric who cannot do enough to make your stay memorable. The Riad is beautifully decorated, Moroccan style, of course, the bedroom I had slept three, was roomy, very clean... More

An intimate, friendly, beautifully restored Riad where no stone is left unturned to make one's stay a truly enjoyable experience. Our enquiry about the possibility of having the seldom available traditional dish - Ravisa - for dinner, was met with an enthusiastic response to immediately set about making it happen. Which it did; to the delight of all concerned!

First Impressions - Idyllic, beautiful, warm and friendly, peaceful, a romantic little retreat in the heart of the medina area. We stayed for 2 nights and were welcomed into the owners home. There are so many personal touches that made our stay first class and without doubt we will be back to stay again next time. Customer service is second... More

Amidst the noise and haste of the Old Medina lies a truly remarkable Riad. After navigating down the dark passageway you are greeted with an old wooden door. Behind it lies your oasis. As soon as we went through and got to the traditional square at the heart of the Riad our stresses melted away. It was a feast for... More
