“Looked after us at this oasis”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

Stayed here for four nights. Arranged to be collected in a moden 4WD that took us close to the riad where Jamal met us to guide the rest of the way.

Jamal looked after us throughout the trip.

The rooms are clean and nicely decorated.

Had a meal here and it was quite tasty.

They have a pool but too cold at that time of the year - the sun terrace was nice though.

After a snowy 8 day trek through the High Atlas this was a welcoming place to warm up, shower and recouperate for the next portion of our 35 day trip. Expect friendly and knowledgeable service. You are only a brief walk from the main souk minutes from the Djemna el Fna close enough to every thing that you can duck back into your "base" have a cup of coffee, mint tea or what ever you fancy served cheerfully all day by the wonderful staff. Nice, well appointed rooms. Pre trek we were supposed to stay here but a nasty storm delayed our arrival and we were moved by Marc and Odile to an other place around the corner - also very nice - and felt well taken care of. That night we were invited for dinner with Marc and Odile and some of their friends and guests, Fatima cooked a delicious meal followed by Odile's dessert. A sparkler and some nice wine rounded out a perfect evening. Highly recommended.

Marc and Odile made us feel as friends sharing their home. Abdallah, Fatima and Raja were helpful and attentive. The rooms are wonderful, the breakfast freshly prepared, the dinner (to order) delicious. This riad is a welcome haven in such a bustling city.

Room Tip: Kahwa or Douria would be my choices

We found this Riad by Antoine through Riad Aguerzama, it has few rooms and great staff , they do all their best, always helpful with a smile. Thank you Jamal & Aziz for the great hospitality and also to our driver Aziz who brought us to the Berberian villages.

Rooms are cool & clean which is the most important points in Marrakesh, fresh juice and mint tea for the breakfast, centerraly located in the old city.

I stayed here for 4 days togehter with my mother. From the first foot step in the riad to the last foot step out off the riad the service was heart warming and excellent. And we felt so welcome.

The (choclate ) room was a pleasure to sleep in . Big room, good bed ,nice bathroom ,very clean, quiet at night for a good rest. Breakfast is good typical morraccan.
The riad situation is only a few steps away from the Jamaa El Fna ,so this can not be better.

But the riad and his decorration is not the main factor, why I can highly recommand this riad . The hosting skills of Jamal and his staff are highly professional .
It was an honour to stay with them.

I contacted Riad Aguerzame for a room but it was fully booked. However Antoine (the owner) suggested an alternative: Dar el Masa. Bernard at Dar el Masa was very friendly and welcoming from the first e-mail I received and I felt relaxed and at home from the moment I entered the door of the riad.

The riad is situated very close to the main square and Bernard made sure I was able to find my way there and back without getting lost in the little streets. He also guided me through the souk and showed me some of the better places to buy souvenirs and gifts.

There are 5 bedrooms all very tastefully decorated in a morroccan style and very comfortable. The small pool is just what you need to refresh you after a day wandering around the city. And the roof terrace is the ideal spot to relax and enjoy the sunshine. Breakfast is a friendly occasion which includes pancakes, fruit, tea/coffee, fruit juice, bread and jams and is eaten at a large table shared with the other guests.

Bernard and Antoine were also very helpful in organising a trip to the mountains with an excellent guide.

Stay here and you will be sure to have a brilliant and memorable time in Marrakech.
