We only spent two nights in Marrakech, but I wouldn't have wanted to stay in any other Riad or hotel! The staff was incredibly welcoming. We arrived late at night, along with another guest, and as soon as we got there we were greeted and given the traditional Moroccan mint tea. I think we all spent the next few hours... More

We stayed for 3 nights at the Riad which was an amazing welcoming into Morocco. We were picked up from the airport by Abdel who made us feel very comfortable and safe in the streets of the Medina. The staff went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable our whole trip, suggesting great local restaurants and sites... More

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
