4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

We stayed for 4 nights and enjoyed the Riad very much. Very friendly and helpfull staff who pick up us at the airport. It's a litte bit to the far end of the souk but it fun to see that area too... and after sometime you can find you way home!

Stayed December 2012, traveled with family

We (a family of 5) stayed 3 days in this very nice Riad. Nice rooms and well kept clean. Very nice staff too. Our best recommendations both for singles and for families. Placed in an area of the Medina which is not too crowded by tourists.

Beautiful swimming pool, nice service. No problems at all, good service. Very enjoyable.
I went there a few months ago with some friends and we all hade a very nice time, we'd recommend it.

It is not easy to find the way through the Medinas maze of very small streets. The first time you surely need a guide, that was offered by the Hotel and who picked us up at the train station. Once you enter the small atrium of the Riad you feel like coming home to your dreams of Marrakesh. The small pool, the harmonious typical interior, the terrace, it’s all real. We can recommend this Riad for a small or even a longer stay in Marrakesh the sites are not too far away (central place about 25 minutes) and the Riad is very clean, friendly and economically priced, it has a small pool and a sun terrace. The personnel is also quite helpful (don't forget a tip, that’s also really typical for Marrakesh...)

Staying at this riad made us feel like kings! The guide came to pick us up at the medina's entrance., Since it was low-season, we got the suite for the price of a regular room. It was spectacular : big bed, huge bathroom with golden shower and a nice seating area. The pool and the rooftop terrace were just icing on the cake! They even made us a late breakfast! Bring earplugs (well you'll need them anywhere you go in Morrocan medinas) for the neighboring farm animals (drunk rooster and donkey)... but it's not as bad the muezzin from the Koutoubia in the southern part of the medina. Close to a secondary entrance, so ideal to get back by taxi after a long day :)

Room Tip: Get the suite if available

Everything you see on www.riadalandaluz.com is true. We are a Dutch family and stayed with our kids from 11 and 7 years old in this riad wich is on a quit place at the nord of the medina. It's a 2 minute walk from the taxi stand, but you have to walk about 20-25 minutes to the main square Djemaa El Fna (if you can't find your way through the medina, just walk along the medina walls to the south). The staff is nice, polite and helpful but only speaks French. Simple but good breakfast. Clean rooms and unlike some reviews on this site you can lock your room!
