The owner did everything to make us feel at home. The atmosphere was authentic and the accommodations were very comfortable. The location was very easy to find our way to and from. It was my birthday and the owner helped my husband find a birthday cake and a bottle of red wine to help us celebrate. He also arranged a... More

We stayed 1 night, and it's a perfect location in the Medina yet you feel away from all the craziness, as it's tucked down a quiet street. We had a simple but beautiful room, and the bed was super comfy. The toilet/ shower in the room just had a translucent curtain separating it- so not great if you're worried about... More

We were in the Riad dar Maia for the first three nights of our stay in Morocco and enjoyed an authentic experience of a riad. The place is about 5 min away from the main square and 3 mins away from palaces/parks. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful, in fact, we were on our own in the entire riad... More

My boyfriend and I stayed 4 nights at Riad Maia and loved every minute of it. From the evening we arrived we were made to feel very welcome with yummy mint tea on arrival to the relaxed homely ambience after a day exploring the souks. Even though Alex and Lolita are currently spending time running their new restaurant they were... More

We stayed for 4 nights and were made to feel very welcome by Alex and his wife. What a lovely friendly couple! Alex picked us up from the airport and provided us with a very helpful insight into Marrakesh, especially valuable as it was our first visit. Alex offered us delicious mint tea on arrival which was much appreciated. The... More

We stayed 3 nights with Alex and Lolita, book-ending our trip. They (and their staff) could not have been more welcoming or accommodating from the moment we arrived - and we had special requirements as we were bringing touring cycles. The Riad dar Maia is a gorgeous, tranquil Riad, 6 minutes walk from the Place Djema el Fna. Clean and... More

My husband and I arrived in Marrakech after some very tranquil time spent in Imlil. Suffice it to say, Marrakech is the polar opposite of Imlil. We arrived later in the evening. We were dropped off by our driver from a tour company we had hired to take us through the mountains. There was an issue with the parking people... More

I stayed for four nights at Dar Maia in January and would definitely recommend it. The hosts Alex and Lolita were welcoming, friendly and helpful, as were all the staff. I felt like part of the family and it was extremely relaxing, very clean and well kept with simple but lovely furnishings. I enjoyed breakfast on the roof terrace, and... More

Dar Maia has a great location close to the Djemma al Finna but just far enough away to be out of the craziness and noise. It is small and cozy with a beautiful terrace that is nice for enjoying breakfast or just looking out over the city. The owners and employees are all very sweet and helpful and were always... More
