“The Perfect Get Away”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2012

Just returned from the most fantastic weekend at Riad Ma'ab. It exceeded all expectations. The Riad is beautiful and as soon as you step through that big wooden door you are in a different world. Our group had the whole place and we all felt as if it was our home for the weekend. The service was outstanding and it is definitely the manager, Hussein that makes this Riad stand out from the rest. He arranged a wonderful trip to the mountains and recommended and booked restaurants and also made sure that we got there and back safely. Nothing was too much trouble. It was wonderful to have this oasis of calm in the midst of the hustle and bustle of Marrakesh. We will definitely be back!

We took over the whole place for a friends birthday and had the most fantastic time. From our airport collection we were spoilt non stop for 5 days. The place is beautiful and the hidden roof terrace is a great get away from the busy streets of the Medina. You'd never know you were in the centre of everything once you've closed the beautiful wooden front door.

As a flight attendant, I have the ability to see much of this world. Recently, 2 of my colleagues and myself decided to visit Marrakesh. I researched many Riad's and decided on Riad Ma'ab, and am SO glad I did! The owner communicated in a very timely manner, the manager, Hussein was an ANGEL-fantastic person and extremely accommodating! Sana, made us some wonderful meals! The RIad is very clean and safe and reasonable. The only complaint I would make is the wine is $$ (for Marrakesh), about $18/bottle. Very tasty and they have it available for guests. A full breakfast is included as is transportaion from the airport. Can't wait to visit again! Thank you John, Hussein, and Sana! Shane :)

Riad Ma'ab is definitely a place one returns to. We rented the whole riad for our family and had three wonderful days there. The pictures do not lie. It's a beautiful place, very tastefully done. We had a wonderul welcome and enjoyed everything about the place, particularly breakfast on their lovely roof terrace and the fireplace in the lounge. I can't think of anything negative to say about it. If you want to stay in the old Medina, it's definitely the best value for the money and a wonderful, peaceful haven, a relaxing contrast to the world outside! I haven't checked out all the riads in the Medina, of course, but this has to be one of the very best you can find. We just loved Hussain and Sana, and leavng them was like saying goodbye to family. You can't hope for nicer or more helpful hosts.

Room Tip: All the rooms a beautiful.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Riad Ma'ab. It's the perfect retreat from the hustle and bustle of the souks and is really peaceful inside. The staff are great as well and they really make you feel welcome. We hired the entire Riad and it was perfect place for a group.

Definitely the best place we stayed at on our trip in Morocco. The manager was very friendly (as well as all the staff). The riad was practically brand new, and there is a very nice rooftop terrace where you can sit and enjoy the evening with a glass of wine or beer and shisha. The rooms were very tastefully decorated and very clean. I would definitely recommend this riad for anyone looking for a place to stay in Marrakech.

Awesome service, great rooms and decor, excellent food - if you go to Marrakech, don't bother looking anywhere else! Rooftop star gazing is a must! :)
