We have just returned from 5 nights at the Riad Africa in Marrakech. From the minute we arrived the Riad has more than exceeded our expectations. As soon as you step through the door you are transported into a world of tranquillity away from the hustle and bustle of the streets of Marrakech. The lovely pool in the court yard... More

Travelling in a group of four, we had booked two twin rooms directly with the hotel and were not disappointed by Riad Africa. I had also pre-booked an airport transfer and on arrival in Marrakech we were met by Redouen who assisted with our bags and led us to the Riad, which was located in a laneway off one of... More

After three days trekking in the High Atlas, my two colleagues and I were looking forward to a well earned rest in Marakech, (In retrospect Marakech itself and the word "rest" are probably not entirely compatible!). After leaving our mini bus transfer we were led down a couple of winding streets until we arrived at a very ordinary looking door.... More

First of all I would like to thank Nick from Specialist Morocco for arranging our first experience of Marrakech which was amazing. We stayed for 3 nights in Riad Africa and my husband and I can find no negatives at all . Peter, Todd, and the rest of the staff could not do enough for us and really made us... More

As a family with 2 teenage kids Riad Africa was perfect for us. In a quiet alley but in the heart of Marrakech Medina, ideally located near to taxi ranks, souks and major attractions this Riad is to be recommended. Staff could not be more helpful and the food was excellent. We felt very welcome with our children and I... More

We stayed here as part of a tour package put together by Specialist Morocco. It was apparent very quickly that there had been some issues and, unfortunately, we did not read the latest reviews on the review web sites before booking. Our comments as follows: 1. If I was a woman on my own I would have been concerned at... More

We stayed for 5 nights in February and cannot fault the Riad Africa. We stayed in the spotlessly clean Zambezi room and had everything we needed for a relaxing stay. We ate dinner in the riad one evening and the food is excellent, and there's plenty of it. Breakfast was also excellent - varied and plentiful. The roof terrace was... More

Having spent many an hour on trip advisor trying to search for the perfect raid for our 4 night stay in Marrakech, I'm delighted that we stumbled across the gem that is Riad Africa. We could not have had a more enjoyable stay, from the minute we were picked up from the airport we were made to feel incredibly welcome... More

Firstly, let me clarify the local staff was very friendly and warm and tried to accommodate to our needs. It felt like home on that front so cannot complain. However, in freezing cold when there is no hot water for more than 60 seconds to bathe it does create discomfort to a long distance traveler. The Riad is tucked away... More

Thanks for taking the time to share your experience on Trip Advisor. As one of the owners of Riad Africa I am very disappointed to read about the discomforts you experienced, particularly as we employ a British General Manager in Marrakech to monitor quality control, carry out room checks before each guest arrives, and closely supervise our Moroccan team to...

I can't fault Riad Africa for great location in the Southern Medina, we were able to walk to all tourist attractoins in the old city and soak up the atmosphere. The staff are fantastic, nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are very comfortable and very clean. My daughter and I stayed over Christmas and at all times felt we... More
