“Fabulous, relaxing riad”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

Stayed for four nights at the beginning of January. A large group of us came to Marrakesh for a friend's birthday and stayed in three different riads in the city. We definitely got the best one!

The riad is so peaceful and you feel relaxed the moment you walk into the beautiful courtyard complete with orange tree. The staff and owners were so helpful and friendly. Breakfast each morning was plentiful and tasty. We drank copious amounts of mint tea, which was served at all hours of the day with a smile to however many of requested it. The rooftop terrace was a wonderful place to catch some January sun.

Definitely recommended!

Room Tip: We stayed in Salima - all rooms lovely but ours was on the ground floor so maybe a little less priva...

My daughter and I spent Christmas 2012 at les Orangers d'Alilia.
We arrived after dark and were conducted down a rather forbidding looking alleyway off Derb Chtouka, but from the moment that Joelle opened the front door we were transported into another world, evocative of all the preconceived mental images one has of this amazing city. As we were to find out in the following days of hectic exploration, this really is an escape from the hustle and bustle of the Medina into a tranquil environment.
The rooms were wonderfully appointed and serviced ~ even to the extent of rose petals scattered on the bed!
Nothing was too much trouble for Joelle and her small but hardworking staff, but particular mention must be made of the 'dining in' experience. Two friends from home were also staying in Marrakech, and the four of us had dinner in one evening. It was a truly memorable occasion, a delicious meal served in idyllic surroundings; we thoroughly recommend you to try this unforgettable experience.
Our stay in Marrakech really was enhanced by our choice of Joelle's riad.

My husband booked a surprise break away for the two of us to Morocco and booked this Riad for two nights, beginning of December. Since the birth of our two beauthiful boys 5yrs ago, we had not been away or even been on our own for longer than 24hrs. It was a break away to celebrate our 10yr anniversary and my husbands birthday. I can say wholeheartedly, the riad was welcoming, romantic and full of character. The owner Jouelle and Anna the housekeeper, couldnt have done enough for us, such warm and friendly people.
Breakfast was delicious and very filling. We even decided to eat at the Riad on our last night, dinner was freshly cooked by Anna and absoloutly delicious. We were sat by ourselves, in the back room (living room) with the open fire and television, just like home.
With the hustle and bustle of marrakech, this was a peaceful retreat.
I have to say with our hectic lives and very little time for each other, this break helped us enjoy each other and bring back a little spark. Truly lovely stay and would definately go back. x

My partner and I took our parents to this lovely riad for a weeks break. We booked it on the basis of what we had read on line and so glad we did.
Beautiful building, the surroundings were lovely and our rooms were fantastic.
Couldn't express how much we loved this break.
If you get the chance take the taxi to the mountains and climb to the waterfalls.

Room Tip: If you get a chance ask for a room on the second floor

I can't really add any more to the positive comments already made by everyone else who has had the good fortune to stay here. Quiet, peaceful, welcoming, great breakfast. To be able to sunbathe in December in the roof garden was an unexpected treat.

I would recommend early December as a good time to visit

Room Tip: Sophia was a good size room

Booked for your my Husbands 60th Birthday. I was not sure what to expect. This Riad was fabulous, peaceful and a tranquil. A must needed haven after the trials of shopping in Marrakech. The two young girls looked after us so well. The breakfasts were wonderful totally different to any other breakfast that we have had before. Nothing was too much trouble for these girls. The room was lovely fresh roses and also rose petals on the bed. It was spotless. do not hesitate to book this Riad it comes with a five star recommendation. Thank you all.

Stayed in in Room Sophia for four nights from Sunday 4th November. A lovely riad in the casbah area of this crazy city, wonderful touches from owner Joelle that makes this stand out as a lovely place to stay. Very relaxing courtyard with lovely breakfasts coupled with comfortably room with good quality bedding providing a sound sleep. Great relaxing rooftop area to enjoy a bottle of local Moraccan wine. Enjoyed a lovely meal made by Joelle and her girls one evening, thank you. The girls are lovely, discreet and friendly. Joelle provides the extra mile if you require it by giving sound advice where to go etc. We would recommend this riad strongly, if you want to have that extra special place to eat then MK Gastro Maison at 55 euros for umpteen courses in a lovely setting is worthwhile.
