This was our first visit to Marrakech and Cathy's riad was the perfect location for our stay. Based next to a lively souk and just a 5 mins walk from the Jemaa el-Fnaa, the riad was ideal for exploring the medina. Cathy's team of staff were incredibly diligent and attentive in enabling us to have the best possible time during... More

This was my first ever visit to Marrakech, and I couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. This is a traditional riad located in the souks just north of Jemaa El-Fna, about a five minute walk away. While you might not easily find it unaided on your first arrival, they were able to book us a taxi from... More

After 24 hrs of flying, our experience of Marrakesh and Cathy's Riad was pleasant and easy for 4 exhausted travellers from Australia. Ali meet us managed our luggage through the winding narrow streets to the haven that became our home for the next 5 days. Cathy and her staff were so welcoming and helpful, even escorting us to and from... More

The location of the Riad was very handy for exploring on foot the many secrets of Marrakech. The staff, especially Ali and the cook and the maid, were wonderful. However, the air conditioner in our room did not work and it made for miserable nights. I'd like to say that Catherine did everything possible to get it fixed, but she... More

I have read this review about our Riad ,and I would like to give my opinion about this guest, because many things mentioned here are wrong. and I think it is quite unfair. It is true that in Bahia room there was a problem with the airconditioning, ; We had check it before they arrival and it was working! when... More

I have just returned from a three night stay here with seven of my friends. We arrived late one evening and were met from the taxi (all arranged by the owner Cathy) by Salah who showed us across the bustling Jemaa El Fna, through the souk and along the winding passage ways to the Riad. We were all a little... More

Great hotel! Very, very friendly staff! Helped us and made breakfast and dinner one evening. The only downside is that the physical location is a little confusing to get to--would recommend getting someone from the hotel to show the way.

Absolutely the best part of our stay in Marrakech! A beautiful place, filled with the friendliest staff I have so far come across in any hotel, anywhere. Everyone went out of their way to make our stay interesting, safe and comfy which was massively appreciated after the initially daunting experience of the windy souk mayhem in the midst of which...

I don't know that I can recommend this riad enough. It was perfect. The location is perfect, in the souk and easy to find after a couple trips in and out. But the real jewel here is the amazing staff. Mouna is a fantastic cook. Eat dinner here every night if you can. Ali is the friendliest person in all... More

What really made my stay at Riad Dollar des Sables wonderful was that the staff were all so great; always very helpful and just genuinely friendly! As a female visiting Marrakesh alone the trip was made very easy with the airport pick up and even day trips organised by the Riad staff. And it was lovely to come back in... More

This very well located Riad certainly ticked all the right boxes for me. I came here in late October with two friends and enjoyed every minute of it! I recommend booking the airport transfer as it would be very difficult to find yourself for the first time although having said that once you have got your bearings it is less... More
