This is a wonderful riad in the heart of the Medina. As suggested by the management, we left our rental car in a parking at the edge of the medina and let a porter guide us through the narrow alleys. Once inside, it was a pleasant surprise to find a lovely quiet and cool patio which made us immediately forget... More

We spent 3 nights at the Riad Ilayka in Marrakech as part of a twelve day tour of Morocco. Although the accommodation is often described as comprising seven luxurious suites, our room was not large and had no separate sitting area. The lights had poor fittings which meant that sometimes they did not work and the room was dingy. Rugs... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. All the staff were very welcoming and attentive. The riad is attractively furnished and very well kept with plenty of places to sit and relax. The breakfasts were really delicious. Would highly recommend this riad for a stay in Marrakech.

Hidden away in the depths of the Medina in Marrakesh, we were taken to this excellent Riad. We had very comfortable rooms - but the downside was the lack of light - I think this is quite normal but takes a bit of getting used to. Breakfast was very good - other meals were available but were "on request". Dinner... More

Lovely Riad hidden amongst the Souks. Tasty breakfast and evening meal if required. Easy access to all the tourist attractions and plenty of lovely places to eat nearby.Very friendly and helpful staff. Would highly recommend a stay here.

Loved the place. The riad has a personalized atmosphere. The lovely outdoor areas are especially nice. The little "tower" on top of the roof is a nice place to relax, and there is also sunbeds, so one can get a taste of the sun, in between of shopping and walking in the souk.It is a good place to just be.

Myself and Fiancée Andrea have just returned home after a weeks stay at the Riad, we both agree it was a fantastic experience. Firstly, we got picked up from the Airport (20 Euro fee) and got dropped off at the Riad. We were both welcomed by the staff and shown to our room which was on the ground floor. The... More

We have just returned from a long weekend and cannot rate this Riad highly enough. It is in an excellent location for exploring the city as it is just a few minutes walk to the Souks and Jemaa el Fna. The staff are fantastic and cannot do enough for you. They were very welcoming and friendly and made us feel... More

Really beautiful building, with amazing views from the roof terrace gazebo. Decadent, traditional bedrooms with intricately carved wooded beds, looks amazing. The service is faultless, the food was excellent despite nearly everything dish being new to us. We would love to return to Riad Illayka again soon.

We have just returned from a long weekend in Marrakech and stayed at Riad Ilayka. The Riad is beautiful with very friendly staff who can't do enough for you. Our room was perfect and exactly how it looked in the photos and the breakfast was soooo good. We also ate at the Riad one evening and wished we'd eaten there... More
