Lovely stay at Vanilla Sma for our last night in Marrakech. Staff are friendly and helpful, the house manager amusing with his jokes, and food is tasty with a good spread at dinner, and a traditional Moroccan breakfast in the morning. What we loved most was the cooling cream interiors, which was a godsend in the heat of a Marrakech... More

Dear Riad Vanilla Team We would like to thank you very much for the warm welcome in your Riad. Your information about Marrakech were very helpful. We enjoyed the delicious breakfast on the roof top, the great hamam massage and the jokes of Hicham! 😃 Thank's a lot Andi and Sandra from Switzerland

First, just after booking I received a welcome email from Nelly - the Riad owner, who gave me all information about the place and its services. A driver she sent picked me up from the train station - that's was really comfortable. The Riad is beautiful designed, located at the center of the Medina very close to the Jemaa el-Fnaa... More

This was our first trip to Africa and we were a little anxious, as we had no idea what to expect. I pre-arranged for an airport pick up through the Riad, since we arrived later in the evening. I highly suggest everyone do this, as it is quite a maze trying to find the Riad on the first go! We... More

The room we had was very nice and the bath was... More

Just back home after our 1st trip to Marrakech & we were delighted to have booked Riad Vanilla Sma. Nelly had arranged the transfer from the airport for us which is well worth it as we would never have found the Riad by ourselves. We had a very informative welcome talk from Nelly as we drank our mint tea &... More

After being whisked through the streets during our airport pick up we were a little apprehensive as to where we were being taken but as soon as we knocked on the door of the Riad we realised we had nothing to be worried about. We were greeted by the warmest smiles and instantly made to feel welcome and part of... More

Never before have we felt so at home, welcomed and just relaxed in a place of stay. Nellie is all and more what the previous reviews have said - she is adorable and makes your trip hit all the right places. Nellie has also assembled the perfect team to care for you in detail but in a non intrusive manner.... More
