I chose Ryad Chantaco for my stay because their website was easy to use for a non-French speaker/reader like myself. And the TripAdvisor reviews were great. My initial plans changed a bit, but Jean-Louis was very accommodating and flexible. He met me in the large plaza and escorted me to the Ryad. It was very easy to find from the... More

The Ryad Chantaco was for me one of the most pleasant places i stayed. It is renovated with a lot of taste and has a modern touch. The house is run by a very friendly and helpful french couple who can also advise very well in travel plans. Good was also the breakfast which can also be taken in the... More

This really should get 5 stars but my wife and I have argued long into the night about the beds. My point is that something as fundamental as the bed in a hotel should determine the overall rating. The beds are HARD, not firm, not very firm…but hard. We have a firm bed at home. And I am not one... More

We stayed with Jean Louis and Florence for 4 nights and had the most wonderful time. They are so helpful and welcoming - we were very well looked after. The ryad was beautifully kept; very quiet and peaceful and in an excellent location amongst the souks and just a short walk from the main square. It really felt like a... More

We spent four days at the Ryad and had a great time. Jean Louis and Florence were perfect hosts, they made our stay a pleasure. Breakfast and evening meals were excellent every day. A very relaxing place to stay despite it being so close to the centre of Marrakesh. We hope to saty there again soon!

We have just returned from a short trip to Marrakech. The Ryad Chantaco was excellent. It is so peaceful it is hard to believe you are right beside the souks and the Medina. The owners Jean Louis and Florence are very welcoming and helpful in every way. I recommend having dinner in their Ryad as that was definitely the best... More

Our stay at the Ryad Chantaco was fantastic. It is beautifully decorated and relaxing. It is a real home away from home and only seconds away from the old Spice Market. The breakfasts is a real treat, and a thing to look forward the next morning. We had an absolutely fantastic time with the owners and hosts Florence and Jean... More

We had a great time in Marrakech and are really satisfied by the Ryad Chantaco. The place was quiet & relaxing (thanks to the swimming pool and the hammam), the owners are warmed and give you very good advise about all the City sights. Each rooms have their own typical style, and the top floor gives a 360 degrees view... More

A group of 11 booked this Ryad occupying 5 out of the 6 rooms they have to offer. We had an absolutely fantastic time with the host Jean Louise and his wonderful wife making us feel so at home. Nothing was too much trouble for them. The Ryad is cosy and beautifully kept. The breakfasts were a real treat and... More
