“The highlight of our family trip to Morocco”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

We can't recommend Riad Bledna highly enough. Stylish, relaxing, wonderful cuisine and warm, friendly atmosphere combine to make this the highlight of our 2 week stay in Morocco. Mohamed and Aziz both do their utmost to make you feel at home. Our 4 children could run around and enjoy the pool and the large garden without disturbing other guests, making it more relaxing for us parents than Riads in the Medina which tend to be small and echoey.

We spent several days in Riad Bledna and everything was perfect. The Riad is located just outside of Marrakech, with a very large garden and a beautiful swimming pool to recover after the heat of the city. Our daughters (8 and 5) just loved the place! We had one the two rooms on the 1st floor, comfortable, spacious and with a large terrace. Mohammed, Azziz and the ladies of the kitchen were always very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended!

We came to Riad Bledna for one day, as a retreat. Our stay has exceeded our expectations, we have fell in love with this place. It is a beautiful oasis with stunning views of Atlas mountains.
There's a swimming pool surrounded by garden and aromatic lemon trees.
We had an amazing three course lunch and did not want to leave...
The place is very clean and looked after. The host, Mohammed, is very helpful, warm and knowledgeable.
We would truly recommend this place to anyone who's looking for little bit of heaven.

Due to the splendid organisation and hospitality provided by Mohamed, Azziz and the ladies, simply a great place to stay!!! Very spacious garden, ideal with children due to big and properly designed swimmingpool. With some assistance by Mohamed and Azziz (securely provided with humor) this Riad was the best we experienced this trip

We were staying in the centre of marrakech but on our last day we booked a day at Riad Bledna to escape the craziness and see a different side of morocco. We found the riad in the lonely planet guide and when we called Mohamed, the owner, to organise, the deal was exactly as it says :) Mohamed includes transportation to the riad from the centre, and a marvellous lunch. The day was spent recuperating, catching some rays, listening to the birds and bees. It really is an oasis of tranquility with lots of shaded chillout areas for those who arent fans of too much sun. the pool is beautiful, clean and enticing. The house itself is beautiful, lush guestrooms… we hope to make it back someday for a few nights stay with our family.

Mohamed Nour and his staff welcomed us like one of the family. This really is a relaxing place with so many lovely details (pool, decor, lounging areas, books and DVDs). We spent the first night of our holiday at riad Bledna before going off on a tour that Mohamed had put together for us. Our evening meal was delicious - one of the best we had in Morocco.

We chose Riad Bledna - which is really a villa, not a traditional riad like you can find in the medina - because we figured a few days in the center of Marrakech will be enough and we will probably need a little break from it all - and we were right. The Riad is located about 10-15 mints by car from the medina or center of the town and is surrounded by a big garden. The rooms are large and modern. The pool is not heated but probably that is not a problem most of the time... We were there around New Year and we could still spend a few hours every day by the pool. The host can also arrange lunch and dinner in the riad (very good home cooking - you can also ask to watch how its made!) for a reasonable price. Mohamed was very helpful and he speaks English very well.
