This hotel is beautiful, in the central courtyard there are plants which make it very peaceful and there is also a nice smell, when I entered I felt immediately relaxed and did not want to leave! On the terrace there is also a swimming pool that is small but perfect in the summer heat. However, the highlight of this place... More

Loved this place, a stunning Riad in the heart of Meknes old medina. The courtyard is bound to impress as you walk in, and greeted by the friendly staff (Amina). There is a pool on the terrace up top to cool off in and relax under the plants. Food was home cooked, unpretentious and delicious. We stayed in the Red... More

Traveled through Morocco with my sister and this was our favorite place we stayed the whole trip! Would highly recommend eating dinner there one night. It's Delicious. Amazing Staff and location, too. The other guests were just as wonderful and we met some lovely travelers that we still keep in contact with.

I stayed at Riad El Ma in January 2014 (just now getting around to my review). I found the Riad on-line while I was in Marrakesh and planning my journey north and read other reviews on TripAdvisor. It did not disappoint. The setting was beautiful - the details in the courtyard were amazing. I loved my room (the Blue Room)... More

Riad El Ma is a really old, traditional Riad, and the interior is like a museum, with great tile work, plaster relief designs, and a palm tree stretching up three stories. It was hard to find the Bab Mansour gate to park, so to save time I got by the wall, and paid a petite taxi $10 dirhams (about $1.25... More

The riad is beautiful and rooms spacious. The terrace and courtyard are lovely. Make sure to ask for dinner in advance. It was delicious and fun. The owner was incredibly welcoming as were the riad's employees. They gave us directions around the medina and set up a day trip to Volubilis. I highly recommend a stay here! We wished we... More

A very nice riad in the heart of the medina. The two Aminas are delightful and so helpful. We had arranged to be collected from our riad in Fes by their taxi driver. Kamal arrived promptly and was a great driver. So much so that we also used him to take us from Meknes to Volubilis and Moulay Idriss. He... More

We arrived in early evening after the drive and touring from Rabat. Our guide escorted us through the maze of streets of the medina to the Riad. We were shown to the roof top terrace for mint tea and cookies. Our guide had expected that we would eat there however there was some sort of mix up and altercation so... More

We stayed here for two nights. Lovely personal and warm welcome. A gorgeous tranquil setting in the middle of the bustling medina. Very quiet & cool courtyard appreciated after the heat of the day. Relaxing & attractive terrace. We enjoyed the best tajine ever the first evening so decided to eat there again the following evening - no point in... More

My partner & I spent 4 nights at Riad El Ma on a recent trip to Meknes. We booked directly with the manageress(es) Amina & Amina who replied promptly and accommodated our plans which changed several times during our stay. The Riad is conveniently located at the edge of the Medina near Place El Hedim and Bab Al Mansour, and... More
