We stayed here (12 women) for 3 nights. English speaking manager Tim was very helpful with do's and don'ts and was excellent at arranging transport and trips. The other staff were friendly and looked after us faultlessly. Tim even contacted us in Casablanca to say money had been found in one of the rooms, so genuinely honest too. The breakfast... More

We knew this would be a simple riad, and the staff were friendly and helpful and the location great. We were disappointed at the shabbiness of the riad and in some areas the dirtiness (eg filthy sofa in main "salle") really let it down. Our rooms were on the ground floor and felt a bit damp and gloomy. All this... More

We stayed here for a girls a trip in February. Brilliant location and food. The staff couldn't have been more accommodating and helpful. The Riad Manager advised on local spots to visit and eat, going as far to act as a guide and book us into restaurants. Would recommend for families, couples and groups. Only negative would be the price... More

We stayed 2 nights twice during our holiday in Marocco. Very nice place. Quiet at night despite the location in the middle of the noisy and busy Marrakech. The staff were extremly helpfull, and the manager Tim made us feel almost at home. Beautiful rooms, nice atmosphere. If ever in Marrakech again, we will be back.

This is such a nice riad. With so many to choose from, this one is really worth a visit and stay. It is very close to the main square, with only 10 minute walk away, it make take longer if you stop at all the shops along the way! The rooms are of a good size and have a nice... More

We had a very pleasant stay with warm and friendly staff. We found Tim the manager to be very friendly and capable with a willingness to help with any question that was asked of him. We would certainly try to stay there, should we visit Marrakech again.

We had a wonderful stay at this Riad - the location was perfect and the bedrooms and communal rooms were very comfortable and well decorated. One of the best things about the accommodation was the welcoming helpful staff. Nothing was too much trouble and they went out of their way to make our stay comfortable. On returning to the UK...

After spending some time in other riads in Marrakech, we searched for the best combination of price and quality and we found it in riad Africa. The roof terras was beautiful, quiet and sunny with sunbeds and enough places for everyone to lounge. Our room was big enough, the beds/pillows were amasingly comfortable. The water pressure of the shower could've... More

Great location (albeit a bit hard to find at first) to all the sites in Merrakech. Rooms were fantastic for a room in the heart of the city and the service was exceptional. Tim and his staff were very friendly and went out of their way to be helpful. Definitely recommend Riad Africa! And if you do stay, order the... More

My partner and I decided to visit Marrakech for a long weekend – we wanted somewhere that was a little bit different and warmer than the UK in February. Marrakech definitely fit the bill! There are hundreds of Riads in Marrakech but we were both very happy with our choice. The staff were excellent, very attentive and suggested great places... More
