“Promises made, promises kept...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

I selected Riad Flam from the feedback and reviews on this website - many people commented on how beautifully clean and peaceful this Riad was in Marrakech....how good the food was, how relaxing the day spa, how perfect the location. After staying three days in the Crystal Suite, each and every promise was fulfilled! Congratulations to Flam and her attentive team of staff.
I could highly recommend this Riad - its simply beautiful!

Room Tip: Base priced rooms are small, I recommend you select a room 14 square meters plus on the first floor.

Nothing was too much trouble for the staff here. I have stayed in many hotels around the world and this is up there with the best.

Facilities are great and food was amazing. A true oasis away from the hustle

Just got back from Morocco - we stayed at this Riad for 3 nights after trekking in the Atlas mountains for 4 days. I would definitely recommend it as a great place to stay. The location is perfect - less than 10 minutes to the main square & the riad itself is stunning and very relaxing. Defintely the perfect place to retreat to after the mayhem of the souks! The riad was also very good at responding to emails / questions prior to our arrival which was very helpful. We tried the hammam there which I would recommend as it leaves you feeling super clean! Many thanks to Abdul, Madame Flam & all the rest of the staff for making our stay so enjoyable:)

Some friends and I recently stayed at Riad Flam and it is a beautiful and tranquil place. It is on the edge of the main area but still very close to the center square and it was great to stay away from the craziness and retreat back here. Upon arrival we were greeted and given some lovely mint tea and Moroccan biscuits while doing our paperwork. The Rooms were lovely as is the entire riad with a very nice outdoor area that we enjoyed sitting in for the afternoon reading our books and drinking mojitos after we had had treatments at the onsite spa facilities.

The food is lovely and the breakfasts were divine. We had dinner at the rooftop terrace one night and it was a beautiful lamb, prune and almond Tagine that was to die for.

The only difficult thing about Riad Flam is that the owner only speaks french so while trying to check out we were unable to communicate so had to wait for the other gentleman who spoke English to come back so that we could do all the paperwork but we had also had problems communicating with her at other times.

Other than that I would highly recommend Riad Flam as a great place to stay.

We had a wonderful time here! The rooms were lovely and the communal areas very peaceful! One thing to note is the owner is French and not much English is spoken with the staff but they are very friendly , and the pool is only a plunge pool,

Great location away from the hussle and bustle but within walking distance

Excellent moijitos and great massages!

This was our first experience of staying in a Riad, and I can honestly say this will not be our last, from the moment we stepped through the beautifully carved wooden front door into Riad Flam you can feel the warmth & tranquility, Flam & her wonderful staff are professional & welcoming,The Riad was beautiful to the eye, furniture sumptuous & inviting, rooms furnished to a high standard & was a pleasure to return to at the end of a day walking around the busy Souks. We had our first evening meal at Riad Flam & I can say compliments again to the chef the meal was faultless. The roof trerrace was peacful & picturesque, just what anyone would love after a busy day. Flam, Abdul & Naima we can not thank you enough for making our 1st trip to Morroco complete, we hope to see you all again soon, Health, Happiness & Love from Vina & Mike xx (Ivory Room)

This riad is so beautiful and the staff treat you like royalty. Although we were at first worried because of the location (in the midst of the medina), the beauty and cleanliness of the riad, and helpfulness of the staff totally squashed any fears. The breakfast was delicious and in a beautiful setting every morning up on the terrace. We requested a Friday evening traditional meal of couscous and were served the most delicious dinner! We highly recommend the Riad Flam!

Room Tip: The first floor rooms may not be as quiet as the 2nd because they open right up onto the courtyard.
