“Luxury but family friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2012

This Riad was everything I had hoped it would be. Friendly, incredibly professional staff, in a beautifully presented space. We had our 2 children with us and they were made to feel as welcome as we were. We had the Rose Suite on the ground floor which was practical for the kids and even with two extra beds still felt roomy. The food was fantastic. I cannot think of anything they could have done to improve our experience. First class.

I love this riad for its high quality of luxury accomodation, fine food and excellent staff. This visit was for the retreat and it was by far the best i have experienced, and I have been to most well known spas worldwide. It went from detox juicing, yoga by exceptional teacher, healthy delicious food to various massages which included deep tissue, hot stone, reflexology and every other pampering you can imagine. Reiki & meditation to start and finish the day resulting in the most relaxed tranquil feeling in a short period of time. A presentation on foods that heal which may have changed my life for good. An experience not to be missed and one to be repeated - I hope!

Room Tip: All rooms are lovely

Dear Retreaters! thank you for your great reviews. As well as the personal growth these Retreats give me, is the reward of time and time again seeing the empowerment and self knowledge they provide people. So important to have a quick time out and re-charge of the batteries. Its amazing what you can do in 3 days! Just planning the next one, look forward to seeing you there x

This is a lovely riad, beautifully decorated, great food, lovely staff and hammam on the roof terrace. I went by myself to a retreat, yoga, massage, a lecture, reiki and healthy eating, all well organised and smoothly executed. Was a real treat, felt very cozy and homely. It also makes me want to explore more of the country. Missing it already!

Superb rooms in a very tranquil riad in the north of the medina. Staff very friendly and helpful, great roof terrace and the best food we've had in Marrakech - its worth staying in to sample their superb cuisine rather than trekking busy Marrakech. Would highly recommend this riad to others.

We have just spent 3 nights at Zamzam. We couldnt fault anything. We have never been to Marrakesh before and we are really pleased we stayed in the old city instead of the new part. The staff were kind and helpful. The taxi could not get to the door but we were always met by one of the staff to make sure we got to the riad safely. Its easy to get lost in the back streets. The rooms were stunning and Marcus and Emma have thought of everything to make your stay a holiday to remember. We will defintely return and have already told our friends that must visit and stay at Zamzam. Loved it.

I sent 3 days/nights in this Riad. Absolutely terrific accomodation, exquisite food and delightful hosts Marcus and Emma. Ideally sited in the Medina and easy access at night. The atmosphere is wonderful and I'd highly recommend this Riad over 5 star generic hotels. Quite a unique experience.

Room Tip: I stayed in the Palm suite. Al the suites are good, but loved this one!

Zamzam transport picked us up at the airport. Arriving at the Riad, a Maroccan dinner was awaiting us, and after that 4 days of spicy adventure. The Riad is placed in a quite area of the Medina.
The interiur is a stunning contempory Maroccan design, hand picked by the two english owners Marcus and Emma. The rooms are cool, and private, the tranquil roof garden spa is a heavenly place to spend a few hours reading and relaxing in the sun, you feel there is a lot of heart put into the place. The staff af zamzam is like a small family, extremly helpfull, they opend the kitchen and cooked a meal, a late evening, because a couple had a bad restaurent experience, and came back hungry, we enden up dining at the riad almost every night. When ever you enter the riad, you are personally greated, with mint tea, or what ever you need. Our teenager son, made friends the the staff, who gave him free coke, when he took a swim in the cold pool.
Marcus and Emmas understanding for what we wanted to see, helped us get the most out of our short stay.
We will return, and spend time with our new friends at Riad Zamzam, and can warmly advice others to pick this Riad.
