“Beautiful family-run riad at an excellent price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2011

We really loved our time here - three nights during our honeymoon. We may have been the only ones there and received real royal treatment from the family who runs the place. A beautiful little riad in the heart of Marrakech, just 10 mins walk from the central markets and some terrific restaurants. Our quiet breakfasts here were one of the highlights to our time in Morocco.

Riad Laila proved an excellent choice providing comfort, peace and a rare place to swim and cool off from the searing heat. Kumar, the manager, was excellent and made us feel as if we were sharing his home and nothing was too much trouble. We had dinner at the Riad three times and each occassion it was excellent and far better than could be found elsewhere in the city. Highly recommended.

The worst thing about booking this was Expedia themselves. However, having got through that, the trip to Marrakech was super. When you book Riad Confort El Tradition, you are booking a certain category of Riad, in this case it was Riad Privilege and when Expedia get your booking, they transfer the information to Riads au Maroc, who put you into a Riad according to what you have paid and your requirements(we needed a triple room). I contacted Riads au Maroc and had a lovely email from Aziz who informed me we were staying at RIAD LAILA. On arrival, we found our Riad to be a large, grand beautuful riad and as we were the only ones staying there until the last day, we were able to change our room to a stunning huge suite, which although quite chilly, because of the weather, we had an electric fire which kept us comfortable. Everything was intricate, ornate, pretty and authentic and Najwa and Kamel were the perfect hosts and were very kind. We thoroughley enjoyed our time in this beautiful Riad and would love to go back when it is hot and sunny. It is though located in the top area of the medina about 20 mins walk to the main square (if you don't get lost) but luckily it is quite close to the medina wall and the taxi area.

Big hint for all travellers....Ask your Riad to write down your address or destination in Arabic, as not all taxi drivers speak English, they certainly can't read English and most can't make head nor tail of a map, but if you have something written down in Arabic, Bingo!

Riad Leila is near Bab Yakout off Bab Doukkala. It is a gem of a riad, the staff are fantastic and the food is some of the very best we ate the whole time we were in Morocco. The suites are fantastic value for money and the area itself is a thriving part of Marrakesh with friendly streets where there is no danger of being hassled. The pool area is large compared to a lot of the tiny plunge pools often found in riads, and the roof terrace is also excellent. Highly recommended, we plan to return.
