This riad is located exactly across the street from the main entrance to the Ksar of Ait Benhaddou, the prime attraction of the area. Our rooms were fine, quiet, and well appointed. The restaurant was fine for both dinner and breakfast, the latter included in the room price, which was quite reasonable at 500 MAD (around 45 euros) for two.

stayed here for a night, nothing to complain about, but felt like it was overpriced, and we were the only people in the whole place! The breakfast was very good though! The room was odd and the bathroom tiny, beds hard and pillows lumpy. Did not use the spa service.

Big and comfortable rooms even if a bit dark (small windows and too poor lights). We found them clean. The swimming pool is great to start a fresh day: I suggest to enjoy it before and after the visit to the kasbah. The dinner and breakfast were good and personnel very nice.

Ait Ben Haddou is a place to be visited and the Riad Maktoub is a good choice. The Riad is comfortable and close to the kasbah. There is a swimming pool and the rooms are clean and equipped with air conditioning and wifi connection. The staff is very kind and available. We had dinner close to the swimming pool. A... More

Nice and beautiful decorated hotel on walking distance from the breathtaking old town of Aid Ben Haddou. Very friendly staff, reasonable restaurant and nice rooms, the double rooms with a seprate bedroom and entrance room to sit and read or talk. View of the kasbah from the roof. Great value for your money.

A very nice riad with a pool in the center and rooftop terrace. They have a large dining room and we did have a great dinner and breakfast. Our room had a sitting area with a fireplace (no fire), bedroom that could have slept three and bathroom. The bathroom was a little odd but I did remind the husband that... More
