“Better than expected”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

On arrival at the hotel we were welcomed by the hotel manager and one of the workers took our luggage off us and took them up to our room. The staff were all very friendly and always welcomed you with a smile. The room was very clean and had good facilities such as a mini fridge, safe, and quite a Spacious wardrobe. The view we had was of the Atlas mountains which was amazing! The hotel also offer a shuttle bus service every few hours to the square and so the main city area. The only problem with this was the shuttle bus was quite small and when lots of people wanted to go it was a struggle with finding space, and then you would need to wait for the next bus to come which could be 4hours away. If they had a bigger bus which ran more frequently it would be perfect!!!! Breakfast was also served every morning between half 7 and 10. There was always lots to choose from and it was a buffet style. The waiters were always there on hand if ever you needed anything too which was great! We also found a supermarket close by to the hotel, literally a 5 minute walk. If you turn left at the back entrance of the hotel and follow the road round to the right and keep walking straight on you'll come across AlMazar shopping complex which has a supermarket very similar to Asda on its 1st floor and a food court on the top floor with shops such as Pizza Hut, Dominoes, Burger, TGI Fridays and coffee shops too. I was very pleased with this hotel and would recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing holiday.

The hotel was perfect for a short break; The city centre is a short hop away on the regular shuttle or a quick ride by taxi.
The staff were very welcoming and friendly and helped with advice on the many things to visit in the area, we also enjoyed the meals in the restaurant.
We would certainly come back here for another trip.
All in all a tranquil spot close enough to the buzz of the centre.

Room Tip: The rooms are comfortable and quiet, certainly suited to a short break

Hotel offers everything you need for a short stay. Rooms are nice and clean and housekeeping came to make our room everyday. Went with my mother for her birthday for 3 days. I think it is perfect for the length of time we stayed. There is not much of a space to socialise out of the rooms beside the small bar area and the pool. But there is other hotels nearby with better facilities that you could use. Staff were very friendly and helpful with all of our enquires. I would not recommend using the spa facilities as it is very over priced 450 dhms when you can go into town and pay between 150-150dhm for the same thing.

The food was ok, breakfast was godo, a nice choice; pastries, cereal, cold meat, pancakes, eggs. Lunch was better than dinner it was an al a carte menu where as dinner is a buffet with little choice, 3 choice meats (fish, beef, chicken) pasta and vegetables. Nothing much for vegetarians besides pasta vegetables and salad.

Location is far from town and is not within walking distance but the hotel does offer a free shuttle bus in to old town and new town, only issue is the bus picks up from town every 4 hours; 12, 4 and 8 which can be a bit frustrating if you miss the bus. The hotels is not far from a local shopping centre which as a range of places to eat, a supermarket and other shops for clothes, shoes etc

On arrival at this hotel, we were met by friendly staff. English was not a problem as was suggested on tripadvisor previously. The rooms were very clean and well maintained, however the walls were paper thin and so noise travelled easily.
All the beds were twin, something the hotel should mention on their site and to other tour companies, mainly because it was impossible to keep the beds together as they rolled apart so easily, not good for a romantic break.
Breakfast was great, but if you wanted full English you would be disappointed. However, eggs were cooked to order, pancakes were tasty, pastries and cold meats were available.
The evening meals were classed as international but did lack variety and could also be a bit bland, a bit disappointing as we were hoping for more Moroccan cuisine. I would advise, if you are here on half board then to have lunch instead of dinner and eat out in the evening.
The pool area was large, spacious and clean and pool towels were available without charge.
The shuttle bus service was quite good but there was no return service between 12.15 to 16.15, but maybe there will be more times in the summer.
There was free Internet access in the lounge which was great, however, on the last day I wanted to check in online and print boarding passes but reception said this facility was not available, again a bit disappointing for a mainly corporate hotel.
All in all, a good hotel for the price. It has everything it says on the tin, I think next time I would choose a riad or something with more ambience.

Room Tip: Pool view, higher level

I picked this hotel as it had a pool and spa and with no knowledge of Morocco or Marrakech, In hindsight it was the wrong choice for me as whilst it is a very nice hotel with professional, helpful staff, it had a corporate feel to it when I would have preferred the more authentic guest house type places that Marrakech is full of. The hotel is a short way out of the city but can be walked if you are reasonably fit. /There is a shuttle bus & I don't know what its like in summer but there were a couple of hours between each bus and if it was full, that was it - you had to wait for the next one or walk or get a taxi hence our knowledge about the walk!

The food was good and with enough variety for a week in December and the room was clean. Wifi was free in the lounge area where coffee and soft drinks were served. Note no alcohol is served at this hotel.

Most rooms seem to be on a road front so there was traffic noise but having spent all our days sight seeing it didn't keep us awake at all.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the pool

We too were expecting to stay at the Ryad Mogador Opera and received the same "water damage" story, but after meeting other travellers it would appear water damage is Morroccan for overbooked :), but with hindsight this was a bit of a godsend! It is out the way, but the shuttle took care of that, consequently breakfast was a pleasant, quiet experience! Albeit more variety at breakfast would have been nice, what would have been kinder to the eye was if the kitchen staff could give their uniforms "a bit of a boil wash with a touch of Daz!" Dogs on the site opposite appear to be there for a reason, fed and cared for, but nevertheless noisy. We were aware the hotel was dry, but was told about the nearby supermarket where you can buy alcohol and cheap glasses. We didn't eat lunch or dinner at the hotel as we went out. The Comptoir Restaurant is a must, and ask the lovely Leila to recommend her favourite, you won't be disappointed, and 2 menus will feed 4 people, and check out the fruit basket! Have exact dirhams for taxis, we found showing our money and saying it was all we were prepared to pay paid dividends and the hotel will advise on acceptable rates. This is a clean, fairly comfortable hotel with very friendly staff. Perfectly acceptable for a short stay.

We've just returned from a short break in Marrakech staying at the Ryad Mogador Kasbah.

We had previously been booked into the Ryad Mogador Opera but had been unable to check in due to "water damage" to our floor.

Although this hotel is around 6 km out of the main centre, the hotel run a free shuttle service to the centre of town fairly frequently. The hotel is spotless, staff extremely helpful and the breakfast very good - the Moroccan pancakes are the best!

We would definitely stay here again
