My daughter and I spent 4 wonderful nights as guests of the Riad Princesse du Desert. First - all emails to the riad prior to our arrival were professionally and efficiently handled. From the moment that we were picked up at the airport until 4 days later when we were dropped off at the airport the incredible staff at the... More

My boyfriend I stayed at the riad last month and we had such a lovely stay. Abdel and the rest of the staff made it their job to make sure that we felt at home and that we were completely taken care of. We were always met with smiles and no request was too big. Abdel even arranged for a... More

Best tip: book direct with the riad at samira riads for a good price. I stayed here with 3 of my female friends and it was a fabulous place to stay. It's an experience walking to the riad in the dark (escorted) for the first time, but you quickly realise how perfectly placed this riad is. It's easier to find... More

We stayed here for 3 days, the Riad is in a perfect location for visiting the Medina and all the beautiful sights outside. It is in a quiet location, find with one of the staff first time, and then it's not difficult to find again, getting lost in the Medina is a must anyway! The Riad itself is lovely and... More

We stayed here for four days in March this year and had a fabulous time. Abdel looked after us like we were family, all staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The position in the market is good, easy walking to anywhere you want to go. We did a cooking class which was great, we went to the market where we... More

I stayed here with my partner for 4 nights. This place has the wow factor immediately when you walk in. Beautiful Moroccan architecture and the experience was made special by Abdel the manager of the riad. I can honestly say one of the best travel experiences of my life and would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Morocco.

We had a lovely Moroccan meal here at the Riad Princesse Du Desert one night and had the opportunity to look around before and after our meal. We were staying at its Sister Riad, Rêves D'orient, which was close by, so had no doubt that the quality of the food and the Riad itself would be good, as they are... More

Calm, quiet and extremely welcoming. In the very heart of the Medina and yet away from the busy streets. This riad is not a traditional Moroccan HOUSE, it's a traditional Moroccan HOME. If you've been on the road for a while, take a break. If you've been working too hard, let the riad family take care of you. Special thanx... More

I don't think i've ever stayed anywhere quite as magnificent as Princesse du Desert Riad. As you enter through an unsuspecting doorway the smell of jasmine hits you and the mosaics on the wall being your senses to life. With tea whenever you like and delicious homemade food it's hard to knock the hospitality. Incredibly comfortable beds in decadent rooms... More

A beatiful place in a great location. A short walk from all the main sights, but on a quiet back street so without all the noise. But the real highlight is the amazing friendly staff who made us feel like we were visiting family. Thanks for looking after us so well! We look forwarded to returning one day in the... More
