After a brisk 5 minute walk led by one of the staff from the main square through a souk and down some narrow alleyways, who could've guessed what lay behind the door in the wall ! A large beautifully decorated courtyard surrounded by traditional moroccan rooms over two floors topped with an imposing roof terrace. The rooms are comfortable, the... More

The riad has good facilities with an excellent roof top terrace on one corner of which is a small turret that you can climb to get great views while you sit in comfort. The food in the riad... More

What a wonderful find, a small intimate Riad, down a quiet side street and a very easy walk to the traditional Souks selling quality goods and not the tat found near the Djemma el Fna square (the square). When we first arrived it seemed a long walk from the the square to the Riad, however when timed later our walk,... More

Marrakech is defenitely a place that is worth visiting. However, if you visit it during the summer you have to acknowledge that it will be very hot (in our case, above 50 degrees). In those conditions is recommended to be as much comfortable as you can. We were in Riad Ilayka and our experience was more than excellent. It was... More

We stayed at the Riad Ilayka for 2 days. What an amazing experience! The rooms and grounds are gorgeous, with so much attention to detail. The breakfast was delicious. The location could not be better. The plunge pool on the roof terrace was refreshing after a long day in the hot Souks! But the best of all was the excellent... More

What a fabulous place, hidden in the heart of the old town. Our host Anna was extremely friendly and welcoming. The rooms were fantastic and Mohammed was a brilliant waiter along with the mouthwatering food. Enjoy the amazing view from the roof terrace, it will take your breath away.

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
