My wife and I and 4 friends stayed at Riad Hayati the last week in September, 2008, which was also the last week of Ramadan. The riad is very romantic, absolutely beautiful and located in the heart of Marrakech. The staff is incredible. The food at Hayati is, without a doubt, the best food in all of Marrakech, and that...

Marrakech with its wealth of historical cultural and artistic diversity, Hayati offers the discerning traveller the opportunity to enjoy Marrakech at its best from the fabulous Bahia palace area in the Medina, To help first time travellers to Marrakech I would like to help choose the right Riad while visiting this amazing ancient city. Riad Hayati represents the ultimate in... More

My partner and I just came back from a few days in Marrakech. We booked into this particular riad because we heard so much about it on TA. It is a shame that it did not resemble what we expected it to. Our greeting was not the friendly warm one we thought we would receive, but a rushed hasty one.... More

We have stayed in some of the top rated hotels in the world and we are not easy to please. It took us 1 month of research to find the hotel we thought was right for us in Marrakesh, this one blew us away. We had the new suite which is a great room with plunge pool just the ticket... More

This was one of the worst hotel experiences I have ever had. The hotel is quite nice looking and the rooms are quite nice - as long as you hold your breath. My friend and I both experienced an unpleasant odor in our separate rooms. The staff were far more interested in their own appearance than helping with any problems... More

For the entire month of June, the riad was rented exclusively to a repeat guest and his family. It is therefore impossible that the writer of this review ever stayed with us. RC Owner More

My partner and I have just returned from the Riad Hayati. We had an absolutely wonderful stay. The attention to detail and personal service was fanatastic. This was helped by the hard work from all the wonderful staff. A special mention to the houseman Abdul whose gentle and warm nature made us feel truely at home. I would thoroughly recommend... More

This was the most superb holiday my husband and I have ever had --- Magical, really. It started with being picked up at the airport, then walking through the Moroccan streets to a venue of utter calm -- a combination of sophisticated comfort and personal service. We went with several other friends and had dinner together beautifully cooked and served.... More

This Riad was recommended to me by a colleague and I would definately recommend it to others. The Riad is achingly chic. The pool is bliss. Very clean and beautifully decorated. Very impressed. Good value for money too. Once you walk into the Riad from the madness of the medina, you at once feel the tranquility and calm aura of... More

I would just like to add my thanks to Ron and his staff at Riad Hayati. This is a success story that reflects a vision of what the "riad experience" should be. Firstly, there is the design: an 18th century merchantt's home lovingly restored with cool white background, dark woods and slashes of colour from antique kilims and original Middle... More

When I saw the amazing reviews and photos of Hayati, I contacted the owner, Ron Ciccone, to book the riad for myself, my husband, and three colleagues while we attended a conference in late May and early June. There is not much to add to the already glowing reviews: the rooms, rooftop terrace, new plunge pool(!), and common areas were... More
