Our small tour group booked this hotel several months in advance. For the previous two weeks we had been staying in quality accommodation around Morocco. As we were paying for a high standard of hotel, this riad was a big disappointment. We booked all five rooms and requested three rooms with twin beds. None had this. Instead the hotel provided...

We went for our honeymoon, having read previous reviews. It's quirky, has character, the staff are great and it's located right in the heart of the Medina. I'm not going to go into the reasons why, but we actually slept in 3 of the 5 rooms during our stay! Breakfasts were simple, but excellent and were eaten on the roof... More

We cant praise the Riad Lotus enough, service was wonderful, thanks so much to the staff. The views from the roof terrace are amazing and the food truly excellent (try the lamb tagine!) We really couldnt find a single fault and we were looked after by the lovely Khalid and Rachid who both made our honeymoon extra special. We were... More

HIgh class Riad with classy design. Staff was most serviceminded and had a personal touch. Two nights we were the only guests (only 5 rooms in this riad) and had first class service. The breakfast at the terasse is lovely.

I spent most of my time relaxing and sunbathing on the lovely roofterrace, it's also a great place to have breakfast and dinner. My friend and I had booked a twin room through Traveport and the Riad only has six double rooms. We were going to cancel but Khalid arranged for us to have 2 rooms. The service was great... More

We were recommened this Riad by our hotel in Marrakech and booked through Octopus. From the pictures it looked very plush and when you first get there you see it as quite swanky but when you look closer it needs an update. We got the bus from Marrakech and there was no offer of a collection from the bus station... More

We hastily booked Riad Lotus O Marine based on Trip Advisor rating reviews after our original hotel choice was unavailable so, after taking a 3 hour Supratour bus from Marrakesh, arrived with some trepidation. It's easy to locate and never did we feel unsafe despite it being located at the end of a narrow alley in the heart of the... More

I was worried when I booked this place about some of the negative reviews, but I decided there were only a few, and so ignored them and booked. I was glad I did. This is a small 5 room riad, just off one of the main streets in the Medina. It is down a scruffy poorly lit alley, but if... More

My husband and I had such a great time at this riad, and it was all down to the wonderful staff. The amenities are top notch: Bang and Olufson stereos in the room, a selection of DVDs to watch, lovely rooftop terrace...

We stayed here for 2 nights during the wettest freaky rain that they had ever experienced in this lovely relaxing little harbour town. it was lovley! Everything was perfect - cosy, eccentric, atmospheric and the bathroom is luxurious by any standards, the roof terrace is great too.
