Just wanted to say thank you to the owners for such a lovely time at the 2 nights we spent at Ryad Ganou. Nothing was too much effort and we enjoyed sitting around the pool chatting and enjoying the tranquility compared to the near by hussle and bussle of the square. The breakfast was delicious and by far the best... More

At just a 5 min walk to the main Jemaa el Fna plaza, Riad Genou is blissfully quiet, clean, and has an understated charm. After an afternoon of getting endlessly lost in the souk labyrinth, nothing beats dipping your feet in their pool and peeling a fresh mandarin from the Ganou courtyard tree. Veronique and Jean Marc (the owners) have... More

Veronique and Jean Marc were excellent hosts - genuine and generous. They welcomed us and made us feel at home immediately. The Ryad is beautifully decorated and located only 5 mins walk to Jemaa el Fna. Veronique showed us the way to the souk and recommended an excellent restaurant (great food at affordable prices). We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and... More

We had the best stay at Ryad Dar Ganou! The service is amazing and Veronique is so welcoming and is really a great host. The accommodation is so calm and relaxing which is exactly what you want after a day in the hustle and bustle of the medina. The breakfasts were fantastic and really generous and we also ate dinner... More

The Riad Dar Ganou has been the best place we have stayed in Morocco. Jean Marc and especially Veronique have been wonderful hosts and could not have been more helpful. The food, the wine, the service and the other staff have been first class. We were made to feel very welcome and it was like a home away from home... More

Stayed in mid June. The location is great, just 5 min to the bustle of Jemaa el Fna. The ryad itself is a peaceful jem within the Medina. The courtyard with a pool offers respite from the heat and is an inviting place to enjoy mint tea & relax to the sound of birds chirping after much walking in the... More

This Riad is just a few minutes from the main square, Jemaa el-Fna and very easy to find. Once inside the door, it's a haven of peace, friendliness, ease and relaxation. I stayed here with my two children, 10 and 11 and they also found it perfect. The pool was a total bonus, absolutely big enough for us all to... More

The Ryad is beautiful, Veronique was such a lovely host. Very welcoming and helpful, couldn't have asked for a better host. We booked a taxi from the airport and she came to meet us when we got dropped off which was a big help (her little dog was also very cute and nice to have around) The rooms are lovely... More

Stayed with my partner in May/June 2014. Highly recommended. Is this the most beautiful Ryad in Marrakesh? Maybe not, but it's pretty lovely - you shouldn't ask for more. Are the rooms the most luxorious? Again, maybe not but they are thoughtfully designed, comfortable and homely. Would I come back over and over again? 100% yes. Veronique, the host at... More

My partner and I stayed at Dar Ganou for 5 nights. We had a wonderful experience and we highly recommend the accommodation and the location. We asked the owner to send us a driver to pick us up at the airport (15 Eur) and we were glad we did it. Once we exit the arrival doors, the heat was unbearable.... More
