“Exciting Holidays”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

We spent with my wife 3 nights in this riad. We took the airport transfer, hard to find the first time, after it was better. We had nice double room on the roof, it was really hot, more than 40° but A/C worked well. We took very good breakfast every morning on the roof, free wifi was also provided. Assia and Youssef are wonderful staff, welcoming, smiling, nothing was too much trouble for them. Recommend to my friends.

Stayed July 2012, traveled as a couple

Spending our holidays first in Europe, than in Africa we've choosen this riad because of the show "vacation-vacation" and were not disapointed, nice staff, warm welcome, pickup at the airport, every thing was done just for us as if we where at home. Thank you.

We've booked the 5 rooms of this lovely riad in exclusivity for our family and we had a great stay. We spent 4 nights there and nothing was too much for the staff. We did one day trip to the Atlas Moutains organized by the riad. Thank's for everything, hope to see you all again.

Room Tip: Private Riad is a great deal.

Beautiful and peaceful riad. The Hammam/massage was an experience not to be missed. The staff Assia and Youssef are exemplary and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend you. Thanks the owner for the hand-made map.Thank you for a lovely stay.

Room Tip: We took the room on the roof, it's the largest of all and very quiet.

We're just back with a group of friends from Riad Des Epices. We saw this riad on channel 4, vacation, vacation, from kirsty and phil and never regret our choice. It's so difficult to choose one of hundred and hundred riads in Marrakech, so we had a look at previous reviews on trip, we've also choosed Spices Riad because of low prices and we had there an amazing stay. Assia, Youssef, staff at the riad, Ali the driver as well as the owners were really helpful, always smiling, making a map for us. Definitly accept pickup at the airport, first time it's difficult to find but se well located after 2 or 3 days there? Definitly recommend and come back.

Room Tip: We took the room with Tv on first floor.

We spent there 6 nights and had a great stay. From the airport where Ali, our driver, met us, to the staff of the Riad, everything was well done, organized by staff and owners. We had a nice and large room on the terrace and took every morning breakfast on the sunny terrace. They gave also a lot of advices for trips, restaurants, palaces to visit, etc.

Beautiful riad with friendly hosts who looked after us very well. Ishnar(?) escorted us from the taxi through the souk and drew us a map with reference points so that we'd always find our way back! He gave us shopping tips on how to barter too!
Stepping into Marrakech is like walking into Arabian Nights or possibly Indiana Jones territory; to enjoy to the utmost just let it happen! The people are friendly, kind and love to joke.
The main square Djeema El Fna is an incredible experience hard to describe and we loved it but thought the food was better in the spice square just round the corner from the riad. Here the pace was slower but there were still exotic sights to see.
Two of our four nights, we ate in the riad and the food was excellent and beautifully presented and served.
Ishnar(?) arranged the pick up for our balloon trip, a grab experience and our trip to the Oukida Valley a wonderful day out. All arrangements worked perfectly and I'd love to return to Riad des Epices and explore a bit more with greater knowledge of the country and having brushed up my French.
I chose Riad des Epices having seen it featured on Vacation, Vacation with Phil and Kirsty and I was not disappointed.

Room Tip: We had 3 double rooms and they were all individual and had their own unique features.
