We arrived in Marrakesh at night, we were met by Samira and Haib, and handed over to Manuel who took us to the riad, he was very good at explaining what was going on e.g all the buildings look the same on the outside as Moroccans dont believe in showing off wealth, they would rather beautify the inside! when we...

I have been wanting to go to Morocco for as long as I can remember. When my friends ask me "Why Morocco?" I hesitated to answer as I knew they wouldn't fully understand how much the architecture, history, culture, and general exotic and romantic notions the thoughts of Marrakesh invoked for me. Even the word "Marrakesh" got me all a... More

I were in two riads during my trip in Maroc. Maybe all riads are wonderful, but Princesse Du Desert was very exciting! First time because of very kind and friendly Staff, especially Samira and Mustafa. We reserve beautiful room, but Samira presented us another room with fantastic bad and interior. And Mustafa surprisingly treated us a dinner and made us... More

Well, where do I start? Marrakech was a place where some said I would love and some said I would hate......but guess what.....I loved it!!! And why? Because not only did we stay in a wonderful, warm and friendly riad (Princesse du desert) but also the staff were fabulous. I am honestly not kidding when I say my friend and... More

During my stay in Marrakech, i managed to stay in a few Riads and i can honestly say...Riad Princesse du Desert was by far the best, in term of decoration, customer attention and well equiped. Thou in saying that (it might just be me) it was a little hard to find when navigating around small allies in the middle of... More

The Riad Princess du Desert is one of several riads owned by someone whom we never met. I realize from all the other reviews that there is someone named Samira around, but I think it’s odd that we were there for three days and never saw hide nor hair of her. This makes me suspicious of the authenticity of some... More

Stayed at other Dar/Riads in Morocco all of which were excellent, but this one was the best. Beautifully restored, clean and comfortable. The decor was so colourful and the smell of various oils wonderfully exotic whilst the welcome and the staff were outstanding. Unfortunately I was ill (bad reaction to an insect bite) for the 2 nights we stayed here... More
