Riad El Fenn is full of positivity. The colourful interiors have inspired my next project, the cheery smiles and attitude from the staff made me feel instantly at home and the food was delicious. The luxurious charm was balance by simple delights and a fun atmosphere created by young and old alike.

I stayed at El Fenn to celebrate my 40th birthday with a group 10 friends. Leaving the hectic streets and alleys of Marrakech and walking through the doors into the the Riad was magical. El Fenn is so beautiful and so incredibly calm and peaceful that it is quite hard to put into words. Every room is unique in style... More

We're so pleased that your birthday went so well and thank you for your kind words. It was a pleasure to host your group here and ensure that your birthday was all you'd hoped for. As you say, it really is incredible that you can be sitting in the sunshine looking at the Atlas Mountains within four hours of leaving... More

We were taken to Riad El Fenn for our friends' anniversary celebration. Having never visited Marrakech before we didn't know what to expect. Behind the anonymous walled facade down an alley it opened up into a treasure trove of charm, colour calm and creativity. Interior designed to a high specification every room is different and individual. We stayed in room... More

Thanks so much for taking the time to review us and it's great to know that you enjoyed your first trip to Marrakech so much. We know that guests can find the medina a little disorientating with its tiny streets packed full of life. But that's all part of the wonderful experience that is Marrakech! May your visit here be...

We stayed at El Fenn to celebrate a 30th wedding anniversary so our family and friends took over the whole "hotel". The inverted commas are there for a purpose because this is not like any other place I have stayed in having travelled to 40 odd countries in 55 years. The location, architecture, open space, pools, food, staff, hamam, massage... More

I cannot stop thinking and talking about the weekend i spent here. It was one of the most unbelievable places I have EVER stayed in, and i am widely travelled. Each room is decorated in an individual style and each one is perfect in its own way. I had a wonderful room on a quiet courtyard but others overlook pools... More

Thanks for recommending us so highly and taking the time to review. We aim to provide a peaceful retreat from the bustle of the medina and guests often enjoy the fact that we're so close to the square and souks which means they can pop back and forth. Great that you enjoyed your stay so much. More

I couldn't recomend it enough and would go back again and again. Beautiful interior, wonderful food and perfect location. My husband and I spent an amazing weekend celebrating friends anniversary, and the riad couldnt do enough to make everything run effortlessly and fun. Thank you Megan!!

Having just arrived home from a stunning 2 night stay at Riad El Fenn, on our first visit to Marrakech, we cannot stop talking about what a magical experience it was.

Where to begin?! This was our first trip to Morocco for my 25th birthday and I guess we were slightly apprehensive about our arrival following some of the reviews on TripAdvisor recently - especially one concerning the quality of the rooms as we had booked one of the cheaper rooms. We couldn’t have been happier as we had room 12,... More

Dear PopiB. What a lovely review and it's so kind of you to talk about so many things you liked at El Fenn. It was impossible to construct separate bathrooms in some of the rooms here because we're housed in traditional riads so they just wouldn't fit! But it was great to meet you and we were pleased to invite... More

Amazing place to stay in Marrakech!! My girlfriend and I stayed here for two nights and could not fault it. Unbeatable location and brilliantly authentic. If I returned to Marrakech this is the only place I would stay!
