This riad is everything I dreamt Morocco would be and more. For a very reasonable price the rooms are spotless, the service impeccable, food delicious and the whole feeling is one of tranquillity. We had the suite on the top floor, by default, and it was perfect. The breakfasts are delicious and we just ate a stupendous meal tonite. Big... More

We spent 4 nights in this lovely riad at the start of our honeymoon and we could not have chosen better! We had the suite on the top floor which meant that we could enjoy our breakfast (varied every day) on the adjacent rooftop balcony. The rooms are very tastefully furnished and we loved the bathroom. We had two meals... More

The Riad is well situated (right in the heart of the Medina), service is good (always friendly and welcoming) and the room was by the far the best we stayed in while on holiday in Morocco - big, comfortable bed and nice bathroom. The only slight complaint I had is that it can be a little noisy in the morning... More

Great location, very warm welcome, nothing is too much, even moving the beds around. The food is is the best we have ever had in Morocco, thank you for an excellent stay. The riad is ideally situated to discover this delightful port.

I am glad that I waited to be back home to write this review as I can now compare the quality of this Riad with the one we stayed at in Marrakech. What is best at Riad Malaika ? It is hard to tell. Is it the nice Moroccan decor of the rooms and the common areas? The convenient location... More
