On a special break to celebrate our silver wedding in september. She who must be kept happy wanted to try a bit of excitement and adventure. So four nights in Marrakech at the Riad Shama.. What a beautiful serene oasis in the middle of a city that was described by an elderly gentleman on the plane as "bonkers^. Quiet cool... More

after arriving by plane it was a brisk walk through the medina to arrive at our riad. Once inside this modest dwelling became a tranquil and delightful stay with the constant smell of incense and the hospitable staff, we were able to relax straightaway. Our room was a good size and fitting in with the decor of mosaics and brass... More

Riad Shama and its sister Riad nearby were both stunning, as the pictures suggest. We stayed as a couple for 3 days at Shama and then 1 night at the other Riad. We stayed in the suite at the end of the pool, the room was 30 foot long (or more) with a double vaulted ceiling. The doors opened on... More

We have spent 4 days at this riad with 5 friends. Staff was very nice. The location is a little bit far from the centre, but we could always count on our 'angel' driver Fetah to bring us to the centre and pick us up late at night! What a great service!

We stayed 2 nights in a good room in this beautiful riad not far away from the main ancient medersa of the medina. A special thanks to Youssef for his dedication when he fixed our ac troubles. Good value for the money.

There are some very good things about Riad Shama and some not so good. 1. The Riad itself is charming with a lovely pool in the centre of the hotel (garden / courtyard). This is great for relaxing and some guests seem to just sit here all day, bathing when hot and calling for drinks or food when required. The... More

My daughter and I have just spent four days in this Riad. The staff very friendly and looked after us well, very helpful except when we asked them to book a table at a restaurant outside the Riad! Room was great, clean and spacious. They also have wi-fi which was great for us as we were able to download films... More

It has been long and discouraging to work with Riad Shama in Marrekech. We paid for our 3 nights up front, since that was the only option, and then when I suffered an injury and could not walk, there was no question of making the trip to Morocco. 4 other reservations in different cities canceled and refunded any money we...

Béatrice T, Responsable commercial at Riad Shama, responded to this review

Hi, You have booked in December a non refundable stay with a central reservation. This non refundable rate was cheaper than the refundable one. It means that the debit is immediately done by the Riad. We have had the kindness to offer you to report your stay for the next three months. You have selected the month of May, at... More

We stayed here for three nights in Feb 14. The staff are very friendly and welcoming and can all speak English. You are given Moroccan tea on arrival. Our room was spacious and clean. The location is about 20 - 25 min walk from the main square (Jama El Fna) on the Souks side. This was fine as gave us... More

Stayed at the Riad Shama with a group of work friends, and we clearly made a good choice. The hotel arranged for us to be picked up from the airport and to be shuttled back again (yes, there was a charge for the shuttling, but definitely worth the convenience). When we arrived the staff were very friendly, offered us tea... More
