We had a downstairs room overlooking the pool, which was beautifully decorated and very comfortable – the bath robes were lovely to lounge around in! The bathroom... More

Just spent 4 nights in this lovely, quaint old riad, hidden away in the depths of the Kasbah. You really need a hotel transfer to get here - no way could you find it alone!!

Just back from a truely relaxing break at the Shemsi. From pick up at the airport to departure this riad met and exceeded our expectations. As advised by others in previous reviews do book the riad to pick you up as it is located in a hard to find part of the Kasbah. Despite a two hour wait in passport... More

The stay was so relaxing and quiet, which was great and in stark contrast to the hustle and bustle of Marrakech place. The room was really well appointed with a truly Moroccan style.The bed was really comfortable and the shower was excellent.In contrast to... More

Our stay at Riad Shemsi was just what we needed. Staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was delicious and served with real panache.Our privacy was respected which led to a stress free and relaxing break. The Kasbar location is ideal with one of the cities trending cafés (cafe clock) vitrtually next door. The pool is great for a bracing dip... More
