My best friend and I visited the Riad Africa for 5 nights last month. It was the first time either of us had visited Marrakech or even Morocco, so we were a little nervous, but we had an amazing time. The riad was indeed an oasis of calm in the midst of the madness that is Marrakech! After the first... More

This was our first visit to Morocco and we wondered what it would be like. We had booked a week at the Riad Africa and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We received a warm welcome from Mohamed and his staff and particularly liked the friendly atmosphere and interesting, informative conversation shared with them. The Riad is situated in a quiet location,... More

We spent a week at Riad Africa, and loved the homely atmosphere and especially the friendly staff who gave us lots of information about Marakesh and Berber ways of life, and were always so willing to help. The food was excellent, only matched by a Berber restaurant in the lower Atlas mountains. Its a great place to stay.

Riad Africa was close to all the hustle and bustle of the main square and souk but still a peaceful place to relax. The ideal location! We were three female friends holidaying together in Marrakech for the first time and we felt very safe at Riad Africa. All the staff were wonderful and very welcoming especially Mohamed, Aziz and Ali... More

Had a lovely stay from Thursday to Monday recently. The Riad itself is very nice and traditional. Breakfast was exactly what We had wanted, nice and simple but delicious (some fresh juice, tea/coffee, croissants or pancakes and eggs). There is a nice roof terrace which would be great to relax in the warmer months. Nice lounge to relax with log... More

The food too is... More
