Booked through Maroc Emotions, big mistake. Got ripped off by both the Riad and Maroc Emotions and left out of pocket. This is a beautiful Riad in a very good location. Easy to find and lots of lovely shops around. The room was beautiful and cleaned daily, and the food was delicious and fresh. Sadly on the last night, found... More

This is a great Riad, with very friendly owners that will make all efforts possible to make you feel comfortable. Follow their advice! I stayed in a suite in the first floor, with a walk in double shower that was very good. The suite was spacious as was the bathroom. The bathroom is only separated by a curtain, so if... More

The environment comforting, the people helpful, and the location unbeatable. For people who don't know anything about Marrakech, its helpful to find a place you can trust and a staff that is so accomodating and friendly. Wireless internet, satellite TV, and a gorgeous view make this a breath of fresh air from the bustling streets and streetside vendors, both of... More

This is a really charming riad right near the heart of Marrakech, recommended for people wanting a quick fix of the bustle of the Medina. Unlike many riads it is not difficult to find, and there are plenty of places to eat withing walking distance. Our room was very nicely furnished, exceeding expectations, and the communal parts have an authentic... More

Stayed here for 5 nights in the Aasli Room. Fabulous. The Riad is only 20 yards from the chaos that is Derb Debbachi and is perfectly situated only a five minute walk from the Jemaa El Fna. Eric and Corrine, the owners, have decorated the Riad to a very high standard, with lovely quirky touches. The staff are very friendly... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in May in the room Aasli which was decorated beautifully. The location is excellent it is literally right next to the square but yet once you get inside it is a calm oasis. The owners were very friendly and one of the other guests had been ill and they had got him medicine and were... More

We stayed in Marrakech for three nights. Riad Maipa is an excellent choice, a beautiful house full of charm, very close to the Jemaa el Fna square and very central. Eric and Corinne were the most wonderful hosts. They speak good English which is certainly a bonus for those of us from the UK. English is not widely spoken and... More

My wife and 2 children age 13/16 stayed at Riad Maipa Xmas 2006 for 6 nights. Eric the owner arranged for us to be met at the airport, and personally greeted us at the main square where we had been dropped off by the taxi. Our luggage was transferred by a porter and we followed him through the market. We... More

Eric and Corinne used to be in the Jewelry business and using their combined eye for beautiful things, they've turned this riad into a truly spectacular, restful, gorgeous place to spend your time in Marrakech in. We wanted to stay 3 nights here but could only book 2 nights and then moved to another riad and were quite sorry to... More
