I have just spent 5 days at the Riad Ilayka which is a stunning oasis at the end of old alleyways in the heart of the medina. Nadia, the owner, has created a stunning, elegant riad with beautifully decorated rooms using the traditional style of Morocco but with the modern touches demanded by international travellers today. The riad is enhanced... More

Serene and elegant - full of surprises - this beautifully renovated 19th C courtyard building, its fantastic rooms, its food and especially the delightful people who staff this Raid. I loved their kindness, their being Maroccan, their pride in their professional duties in the Riad, their care in making sure I could make my way to destinations and back, and... More

Just back from a week in Morocco which included 3 nights at the wonderful Riad Ilyaka. Having arrived in the main square in Marrakech, we were escorted through the medina, down winding alleys to a door, through which we found an oasis of calm and luxury. The Riad is simply stunning, and the bedrooms the most equisitve I have ever... More

Stayed in Riad Ilayka for 2 nights and found the staff very warm, helpful and welcoming. Delicious meals cooked and refreshments offered when we returned during the day - even breakfast when we arrived to check in. Rooms were very pretty and well maintained. An ideal base for a trip to Marrakech. Would love to return.

Ilayka is how I pictured a riad all my life - charming, authentic and hidden away from the vibrating Medina of Marrakech. We were greeted at the front door and escorted to the reception area for a refreshing drink with amazing cookies. Nadia, the owner, the staff of Hassan and Abdul were incredibly helpful and polite.
