“Absolutely Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2012

We spent a week in Marrakesh, staying at the DadaMouss Riad between 21.12.2011 to 28.12.2011 - what an absolutely fantastic experience! Mustafa, his mother, and young brother were lovely! They couldn't have made us feel more part of the family. Breakfast was set for whatever time you wanted it, consisting of homemade fresh pancakes, breads, cream and jam, along with coffee and orange juice. We took the typically English Flu with us, and Mustafa happily supplied hot water for our lempsips - and he even supplied us with his own Morrocan version of Lemsips when we ran out - what a man! The Riad is right in the heart of the old town so visitors should be prepared for lots of hustle, bustle, scooters, horses and carts - it's not for the faint hearted and is a shock to the system at first! Mustafa kindly took us out on the first night to familiarise us wih the area and laughed as we were nearly knocked over by what felt like a million scooters zooming past us on every narow street! It is an awesome experience and I would reccommend it to anyone who fancies something different. The Riad is only about a 10min - 15 minute walk frm the main square, and is a fascinating experience along the way. The Riad is clean, stylishly decorated (Moroccan themed of course, which I love), quiet (apart from the Mosques calling to prayer at random times during the day/night), and very safe. My only advice would be to take some ear plugs if you're a light sleeper (due to the calling to prayer), and possibly your PJ's in winter, as it can get pretty cold on a night! We were a party consisting of me, my partner, 12 year old daugher, and my mother in law and we wanted to experience someting out of the ordinary. We certainly got what we hoped for and had a great Christmas! The only other thing I want to add is that if there is anything you need, any advice about where to go, what to avoid, and any help at all, Mustafa is always willing to help out - never pushy, just really friendly and helpful - he's great company too and we spent a lot of time with him talking about all sorts! He came with us to the Atlas Mountains on a trip he organised with his friend (a taxi driver) which we got for next to nothing for a full day - he took me and my stepdaughter up a mountain, falling in to lagoons on the way back down!! Overall, I would recommend everyone who goes to Marrakesh to stay at this Riad :-)

If you want to feel like a real local, this Riad puts you in the CENTRE of the action, chez Mustafa and his family. The rooms are decorated in a very authentic style and the place really feels like a family home (because it is!). We stayed in a lot of different Riads during our time in Morocco, but we were just wowed by the hospitality and incredibly caring attitude of Mustafa. Every single piece of advice he gave us was spot on and you can see that he really cares about the people he is looking after. Meeting him and staying in his riad, you really get a feel for the true hospitality and kindness of Moroccan people. We were invited to share a meal with his mother and little brother, and it was the best couscous we ate during the whole trip!

My one week stay in Marrakech was at Riad Dadamouss and was very quiet and relaxing, yet just 10/15 mins walk from the Djemaa el fna square and easy to find. Mustapha, the owner, and his family were so welcoming and friendly to me and made my stay very comfortable. My room was at the top of the Riad and had a large private terrace with sunbeds and seating area. The Riad is decorated in the traditional Moroccan style, beautifully and artistically designed and is spotlessly clean. Breakfast was served at any time suitable to me and was fresh and well presented. Mustapha was available all day and attentive and helpful, giving me any information on request. A taxi service was available from the airport to and from the Raid which was organized by Mustapha making the journey quick and simple. I hope to return to see Mustapha and his family again soon and I would not hesitate to recommend Riad Dadamoouss to anyone who is looking for a traditional, clean and comfortabe Riad near to the Medina.

A beautiful guesthouse located not far from the main square. We enjoyed ourselves so much at the Dadamous we opt to stay in on the terrace for New Years Eve and enjoy Mustapha's mum perfectly cooked tagine and couscous!

The guesthouse is so tastefully decorated it was easy to come back to relax and unwind after a hectic day out on the streets of Marrackech! Mustapha, our host was very attentive to our needs and quickly made us comfortable and treated us like family members coming for a visit.

I highly recommend this accommodation to everyone and I know I will be returning here if I find myself back in Marrakech anytime soon!
