This Riad is owned by a French family and it certainly has a French flair. It is beautifully decorated, the staff are warm and friendly and breakfast was cooked and delicious. It is located right in the Medina close to all the sights and the harbour.

This was a great choice for us. Riad Malaika is in an excellent location right in the medina and the staff is so helpful. They drew us a detailed trail along a map which we were able to follow easily to explore the entire area. The rooms are too cute! Very clean and large. Breakfast was delicious and fresh, more...

We spent a long weekend here for my husband's birthday and loved it. The staff are so welcoming & helpful that you feel as though you're staying with friends not in a hotel. Breakfast is included and served at whatever time suits you which is great when you're on holiday! Rooms are lovely and decor throughout is beautiful. There is... More

Riad Malaïka is just amazing. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. The people who work there are so nice. They offered us a 20% discount and upgraded us to the Junior Suite Terrace room (which is wonderful) for free. The breakfast is also very good and the riad is right in the middle of the Medina. Definitely recommended.

We stayed at the Riad Malaika for 11 nights and it just was a beautiful time. Sylvie, Primarck and their staff are absolutely lovely and helpful. You always get a smile from them. They also gave us the opportunity to stay for four nights in the suite without any additional charges. The food and especially the presentation of the food... More

We only stayed for one night but from the moment we walked in we felt comfortable. The Riad was carefully renovated and tastefully decorated by the lovely owners and there was no corner we did not like. It was quiet and comfortable, we simply loved it and felt at home here.

We stayed for four nights and it was fantastic. The owners and staff are all friendly and welcoming and happy to help with anything you may need. The food is fantastic and the breakfasts great. A short walk from the beach and the rest of the Medina. Highly recommended.

A well located Riad situated close to the sea and Medina walls. The service is personal and efficient - the comfort of guests is central to the owners' and staff members' philosophy. Nothing is too much trouble. Transport needs, outings and individual needs are dealt with efficiently and effectively. The Riad operates as a well-oiled unit. At no point did... More

We had an extremely positive experience at the riad. The owners are friendly and really offer the personal touch. Their arrangement of the transportation (in our case, a 6hr drive from Casablanca) was flawless, albeit pricey as is the case everywhere in Morocco. The riad is tastefully decorated, has a great location in the middle of the medina, and the... More

Just back from 4 nights in Riad Malaika. All our enquiries were promptly replied to by Piermark and we booked without hesitation. On arrival we were welcomed by a lovely gentleman who spoke great english, gave us a map and made several suggestions all of which were really useful. Our room was spacious on the 2nd floor with everything you... More
