We visited Riad El Fenn last month - what an amazing experience! We were lucky to have one of the beautiful pool suites which was simply stunning - vast bathroom, leather floor and really tucked away in the most lovely part of the riad. Outside the room there was a magnificent balcony area which overlooked the marble pool - it... More

My husband and I were told about Riad El Fenn by a very well traveled friend. We stayed for three nights over the Easter holiday and it was magnificent! We arrived and were immediately whisked to the calm and quaint roof terrace overlooking the Jemaa El Fna mosque. After snacks and a glass of wine, we set out to explore... More

I too was part of the 40th birthday celebrations when we all stayed at Riad Vanessa. It was a definite WOW when we walked through the front door and whilst getting changed for the evening our housekeeper lit all the candles and lanterns so that when we all came downstairs it looked beautiful. Loved the leather floor and sunken bath... More

I have just returned from a 5 day break where I was part of a 40th birthday celebration staying in El Fenn's sister, Riad Vanessa with a group of girlfriends. Wow is all I can say! The Riad was stunning, each and every bedroom was luxurious and chic in every way - I particularly liked the leather tiled flooring which... More

Stayed here for a special anniversary with my wife and three grown up children. We had a fantastic time and were really pleased with ouir choice of stay. Just a warning for those wanting five star de luxe that this isn't it. Management is relaxed, housekeeping is similarly relaxed - drainage can be iffy, On the Saturday morning we were... More

Spent 6 nights in Raid el fenn and all I can say is that it is a little piece of heaven. I don't like to return to places as I think life is short and I would rather experience a new hotel, city etc but this place has to be an exception. Food is excellent, really delicious breakfast and dinner.... More

An absolutely beautiful place to stay. Extremely relaxed and very private, the way it is laid out means you rarely bump into other guests. Like a scene from Elle Decoration. Go there!

Where to start? Well the good stuff deserves praise. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a fabulous bolthole in which to escape the hustle and bustle of downturn Marrakech. We stayed for 5 nights in the deluxe room with private roof terrace and plunge pool. We both thought the room and Riad were lovely. Really relaxed vibe... More

The Riad El Fenn is a place to start the best trip to Marrakesh, just on the side of the 'Midina' Old town. This place is an oases of rest, art, comfort and relaxation. The Rooms are all different and the interior is beautiful and very specious. The treatments like Hamam are the way to experience the Maroccan live. I... More
