“Clean me!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

We stayed here for a few days and were disappointed with this riad.
The previous reviews did not reflect the quality and service that we received at the riad,
The room was dusty, towels and sheets were not clean, we could even smell the perfume of the previous guest on the pillow.
It was also scary walking from the riad to anywhere as there were many dark alleyways, would not recommend this riad if you are a solo traveler.
The information about Morocco that we received from the riad was also lacking,
the owner was not aware of opening times, or prices my guide book was far more useful.

Room Tip: All rooms are the same value, do not pay extra for a deluxe room.

We had a lovely time! Every day we started with birdsinging and a great Moroccan breakfast. Two times we enjoyed a dinner at the Riad, which what was very, very good! Omar and his family gave us a warm feeling the whole week and although we are at home now, they still do! We came as guests and left as friends! They gave us a great memory and we will certainly going back…..

Thanks again,
Math & Brigitte

Me and my three friends stayed over at the Riad Sidi Omar in late December 2012. I was recommended this place by both of my brothers who stayed at this Riad a few years back. We all had an absolutely amazing and fantastic time! The breakfast consists of Omar's authentic Mint Tea which is delicious, bread, croissants, jam, butter and eggs. The Bathrooms are elegantly cleaned and neat, the beds are compfortable, the air-condition is top-notch fitted in your room for cold and hot nights. If you're planning on going to Marrakech, go and stay at this Riad!! An unforgettable and pleasant memories! Thanks Omar! :)

Me and friend visited Morocco in mid July 2012. Of all the riads and Dars we had stayed, I can say Omar's is the best. This is a riad run by a Moroccan who was born and raised in Marrakech, Omar is more than happy to share his knowledge of the city and his homeland with you. You'll have the chance to meet his family and play with his adorable nephews and niece. This house is in all sense and purpose the "true" riad, not a restoration project, it is a place when generations of family lived and memories created, as a guest, me and my friend are honored to be part of this family and shared a place in their history.

We visited Riad Sidi Omar over New Years 2012 and had an absolutely wonderful time. Omar and his family (who have lived in the riad all their lives) made our stay absolutely first class and very memorable. We stayed in the room with the fireplace, and Omar made sure we had enough wood each night so we could make a fire. The room was clean, big and beautiful and the bed was very comfortable. Breakfasts in the morning were massive and very tasty--and prepared by Omar's lovely mother. They were happy for us to take our breakfast to-go when we had daytime excursions. Any questions we had and anything we needed, Omar was happy to help. I'd highly recommend staying here, and we'd definitely stay here again next time we're in Marrakech!

Room Tip: The larger deluxe room with the fireplace was really nice.

Riad Sidi Omar is a beautifully tranquil sanctuary from the excitement and 'circus-like' feel of the souks, medina and the famous busy Djemaa el Fna. Myself and my friend stayed here for 5 nights in October and I couldn't recommend anywhere better to stay if you want a truly authentic Moroccan experience. The Riad itself has been lovingly restored using traditional materials, methods and colours, with the result of a calming of the senses as soon as you enter the beautiful large doorway. As soon as you arrive you are made to feel like you are one of the family and Omar makes certain that your stay is the most comfortable and pleasurable. All of his family welcome you into their home and they are very cheerful, friendly and helpful. There is always someone around to help if you need something or just have a question. We experienced some daily life of Marrakech which included visiting the local hammam and seeing how authentic Moroccan dishes were prepared and cooked.... and eaten! (Yummmmy). The breakfasts are also amazing and huge - they keep you going all day!
The rooms are very comfortable and clean and beautifully furnished. The courtyard is wonderfully quiet and cool, with only the sounds of the birds in the morning (the fountain was turned off at night!). The roof terrace is an excellent place to relax and catch some sun, and there were also a couple of lounges that were very cosy to read a book in during the evenings. All in all I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Marrakech and highly recommend this riad for any type of traveller whether solo, friends, couple or family..... Ten out of Ten! Oh and the mint tea is fabulous!
