Riad Charai cannot be faulted on its beauty. The room and pool was immaculately presented. The breakfast as well was lovely and sufficient. Unfortunately compliments end here. We sort of felt like intruders rather than guests. Every time we went to the door and pushed the buzzer we had to wait forever to be let in. We felt like a... More

Hello Sir, As you know, Morocco is a muslim country and during Ramadan the bar is closed and this is not permitted to serve alcohol. Apologies for this inconvenience. Best Regards, Béatrice TIPP More

We stayed 5 nights at the Riad. We had the Safran room (twin, with terrace). Everything was as expected (pictures from website). Our pick up from the airport was there. Breakfast was good. We almost had all our meals at the Riad, food was good. The Morroccan staff was very professional, pleasant and eager to provide a good experience. The... More

As always I chose this Riad with the help of Tripadvisor, we weren't disappointed so much so my wife wishes to celebrate her 50th birthday here. We started our trip with a driver waiting to pick us up at the airport eliminating the stress of finding the location off our own devices. As others have described being inside the Medina... More

Riad Charai was the highlight of our week stay in Marrakesh and one of the most beautiful places we have stayed in. A stunning and relaxing retreat to chill out in after a busy day sight-seeing and going on excursions. Staff, including the riad driver, were friendly and very helpful.Could not recommend higher to anyone looking for accommodation in Marrakesh!

We stayed here (2 adults, 2 children [9&11]) for 5 nights and had a fantastic time. The whole place was beautiful, the service really good and the experience very positive. It was February, so we didn't get to use the pool - although it looked lovely! We didn't use the spa facilities either. We ate in on the last night... More

Stayed at the Riad with friends for 4 nights early February, blown away! We were met from the taxi and walked through the Medina to the front door, quite an experience for first time in Marrakech but once we stepped inside it was like a different world- so calm, cool and sophisticated. We were treated to mint tea and nuts/biscuits... More

Very Moroccan chic. It's a gem. Once you have found the place which is an experience in itself, you'll find a beautiful, typical Moroccan riad. The entrance, the central pool area, the roof-top terrace for a delicious breakfast. My room, no. 4 if I recall, right in front of the pool, was just awesome. Lots of special lighting, woods, ceramics.... More

We got married at Riad Charai in September. It was perfection! We took over the riad for 3 nights. The staff, service, food, experience was amazing. We will be back. Robin and Meriem are so helpful and speak great English. Yousef is wonderful! I think the location is a good spot for exploring Marrakech. The main taxi rank is a... More

This riad has only 8 rooms, but is really big! It has so many corners, rooms and terraces, that the 8 couples will always find a place to sit alone if they want. Inside it was quiet and peacefull, nice decorations. Location is a downside. It's about 15-20min walk to tha main sqare, but trust me - even if you... More
