The ancient frontage of El Sagaya hides a jewel right in the centre of the vibrant Medina. When the guardian greets you with a warm smile at the entrance, you still do not realise what a world of enchantment you are entering. The riad is truly stunning. Forget two up two down terraced living in the Uk, this is Moroccan... More

À beautiful place to stay the night in Marakkech. Beautiful rooms, perfect roof terrace and friendly people. Breakfast is good and we had dinner next to the inside pool, that was delicious! I really recommend this place! Riad El Sagaya....

This riad was our first experience and although not our last, it will be for here. Mubarak, the host was kind and attentive until he realised he wasn't going to screw any more money out of us. After which he became close lipped and surly. We had paid everything up front before we arrived and he didn't like that one... More

I appreciate that the riad experience is not for everyone. However, I have to take issue with several of your comments. No guest has ever accused our guardian of trying to 'screw' money out of them. If he didn't know about the paypal payment then that is my fault for not communicating it to him for which I apologize. At... More

This riad was like home from home. Such accommodating staff, - a big THANKYOU to Mubarek for opening the door each night without complaining once! Breakfast was always delicious and the freshly cooked pancakes and chapatis were delicious. A very friendly, warm atmosphere, kind and attentive staff and bedrooms were always clean and welcoming. Thankyou for a lovely stay.

Spent a very pleasant three weeks in this riad so had time to get to know the staff. Everyone made us so welcome and nothing was ever too much trouble for them. The riad is very welcoming, spotlessly clean and has everything that you expect from riad style accomodation. Breakfast on the terrace is just wonderful and breakfasts were always... More

Upon arrival, my girls & I were not impressed at where this Riad was located. Never the less inside is lovely. Every room is different, but our rooms in particular were nice and spacious. I was not impressed by the fact that our bathroom had no door, which meant when showering/using the toilet one could be seen. Our room upstairs... More

Very friendly staff, great location, amazing atmosphere! The roof terrace is perfect to chill out. The room and bathroom were okay value for the money. Good tajines (although we got a different one than we had ordered).

The riad was a lovely peaceful oasis near the edge of the medina. Yassine the host was absolutely fantastic, pleasant and friendly with a great sense of humour. He had good local knowledge and organised some wonderful trips for us including an amazing one to the desert which was very good value. The other staff were also excellent and we... More

We really liked our stay at this riad until we were about to go on our desert trip. We had asked to stay another night once we got back extending our total stay from 4 nights to 5 nights. We were given a verbal yes but a couple of hours later that was changed to a no. We ended up... More

The manager of the riad was welcoming as soon as we arrived, offering us mint tea and conversation (even though he seemed tired-as we had arrived quite late at night). When we declined the mint tea he graciously offered up an apple and we sat around the table discussing sites that we could see the following day- and most importantly... More
