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

I arrived on very short notice and in peak season, but Alex was extremely helpful, even finding me accommodation nearby, when their Riad was full. He helped plan a perfect adventure in Morocco, suggesting Trips and great accom' in Essaouira. He and his wife took a very personal interest in my well being and comfort, even though very busy opening... More

A great find! Though just a few minutes walk from the Jamaa al Fna, Riad Dar Maia was peaceful and charming and provided a comfortable respite from the noise and bustle of the souks. This was our first trip to Morocco/Marrakech, and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful in providing guidance for our explorations of the Medina and surrounding... More
