“Most wonderful stay!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2012

My friend and I took our time searching for a nice place to stay right in the Medina so we finally chose the riad cocoon due to the excellent ratings - we were not to be dissapointed! The riad is a modern interpretation of an oriental style riad. It has five guest rooms in total, so it's rather on the small side. It is located very close to the souks so that we were able to see all the sites in the Medina by foot. We really loved the individually composed music compilations in our room and in the common areas, by which you can't help but relax and enjoy! Corinne, the owner and her staff were very friendly and absolutly forthcoming to fulfill all our wishes. They even made us dinner one night when we were just too tired to go out to eat, though usually you need to order at least a day in advance. They are also very helpful when it comes to itineraries on what to see, nice places to eat or book trips. Our room was most beautiful, since it was located on the very top and no one else was staying in the riad at the time we had the roof terrace all to ourselves. Overall, I'd absolutely recommend staying there. The only improvable in my opinion would be the hard mattress, which I could not get a good nights sleep on.

A wonderful riad, warm and welcoming atmosphere, fantastic staff, brilliant recommendations,
On the first night we had the best dinner in Marrakech and the best tagine in Morocco !
Perfect trip to the Atlas Mountains for lunch at a berber family.
The best massage I ever had.
I am sure Cocoon must be the best place to stay in Marrakech !
We have had the most enjoyable stay, we will recommend it to all our friends, and we hope we can return to stay here again soon

A friend and I stayed 2 nights at Riad Cocoon. It wasvery pleasant. Corinne was very helpful. Prior to arriving I had some difficulties and she was very accommodating. Upon arriving we were greeted by Corinne, her staff, and awesome dog Samba. We were offered mint tea, pastries, and a tour of the Riad. The staff were very kind, attentive and made us feel at home.

Corinne has great taste and the Riad is very chic and zen. The riad is not large but it is cozy and very well decorated. I especially liked the bathroom and shower which were spacious. However, I recommend booking a larger bedroom with a window. It's a little more expensive, but I think it's worth it because you'll get more ventilation and sunlight. Corinne offered us this option, but we made the mistake of not accepting.

Corinne gave us great restaurant recommendations and even called to make reservations. Furthermore, her staff was kind enough to escort us from the riad to the restaurants. Very good customer service!

Me and my partner had 4 nights in the lovely Nirvana room with private terrace. Straight away, we fell in love with the place, we arrived fairly late but were welcomed with mint tea and cakes in the smart lobby. We then went up to the room and were blown away by the effort that had been made - the room was perfect size, bathroom was great, but the thing we loved most were the little bits which made the room that bit special. The roses, the animal shaped towels, the amazingly romantic playlist on the ipod and more. The private terrace was nice for sunbathing on our own when we needed relaxing time from the madness of Marrakech! We had dinner at the riad on our last night which was beautiful and I would highly recommend. Breakfasts were also great and very filling! Corinne and Simon were extremely helpful and super friendly, as were all the staff. We were very sad to leave and hope to come back at some point!

Corinne and her staff leave nothing to chance when it come to providing outstanding service. We were met at the airport, received a very warm welcome in the Riad and enjoyed an excellent and romantic dinner on our first night. We stayed in the "Nirvana" room on the top floor, a spacious and very well equipped room with its own roof terrace. During our stay we relied on Corrine to arrange for restaurant bookings, day trips and beauty treatments. We have never been so pampered in a hotel, ever. Riad Cocoon must be the best Riad in Marrakech; we cannot think of anything that could be improved upon. Very highly recommended!!

Before we even arrived in Marrakech we had good vibes about Cocoon, emanating from the lovely email we received from the owner, Corinne when we booked. Would we like to be met at the airport? would we like dinner in the Riad on our first night?

Yes and yes; and here lies the secret of Cocoon's brilliance - Corinne. She is a star! So the decor is fantastic, the service is fantastic, the food is fantastic, the attention to detail is fantastic, the hammams are fantastic, Samba the Boston terrier is fantastic, Corinne's knowledge of restaurants and trips is fantastic. You get the picture.....

We have never stayed anywhere better for a holiday. Each room is themed and has its own iPod with playlists created by Corinne's partner Bernard. There are towelling robes and slippers, rose petal strewn bathrooms, towels laid out each morning on the sun loungers, a lovely breakfast served at any time you like on the terrace under a clear blue sky. Cocoon is a haven of tranquility among the hubbub of Marrakech.

And when we were souk-ed out Corinne sat us down with a glass of wine and sorted out a gastronmic and tourist itinerary for the remainder of our stay. Her staff guided us through the souks and to restaurants we wouldn't otherwise have found. It got to the stage where we just left it to Corinne. We would ask one her staff what we were doing, and get a reply. 'Taxi at 7.45, restaurant booked for 8.00'.

How Cocoon can be only numbered in the 60s on Trip Advisor I will never know. I just echo everything else people have said about this great holiday destination.

And typical of Corinne, she had sent another lovely email to us when we got back. Outstanding all round.

Room Tip: Nirvana gives you your own private terrace. Put some tunes on your iPod
