“perfect stay in november in Marrakech”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

We had a great time in Marrakech , thanks to Bart and Amine of Villa Rayane in Marrakech.
They helped us with everything we needed : transport to Marrakech every day whatever the hour , a guide into the soeks (to get the best prices : take Amine with you ;-) ) tips for restaurants , a driver to Agadir (for a small price if you compare it with the prices at the internet )..they arranged everything with a big smile ! Villa Rayane is a beautiful place to relax in the neighberhood of a wonderfull city ; Marrakech ! We 'd stayed in a suite with a hugh bathtube and rainshower, even in november we could relax by the pool in the sun. The view is amazing : palmtrees with in the background the impressing sight of the Atlas mountains . Bart and Amine : we 're looking forward to stay again with you in the future !

Our stay in Villa Rayane (my 3 ado kids and myself) was like a dream! As from arrival - where Amine picked us up at 2 in the morning in ramadan - until departure we had a great time! The welcome at the villa, the superb rooms, the great swimming pool, the peace and quite in the garden, the special dishes prepared by the family of Amine, the (free) driver service to Marrakech and back, the nice chat with the Belgian owner, the trip to the atlas, ... we enjoyed every minute of this 4 days trip and have been greatly serviced in this very nice riad! Difficult to find indeed, therefore Amine is the best guide, but thanks to that you have guaranteed tranquillity!
(I can compare now, as I went back and had to find another riad as Villa Rayane was complete (as I was too late to reserve) ... all was nice over there, but was at no point at the same level as Villa Rayane!)

We stayed in very comfortable rooms that all had their own theme, we enjoyed the big pool and its lounge chairs in the midst of a beautiful secluded garden, and besides the relaxing tranquility we also enjoyed a great service, great meals....all in all : Villa Rayane is just like an oasis, and yet close to the vivid city of Marrakesh.

The hotel/ riad was very nice, clean and big. We had a lovely stay and I would recommend it to everyone! Our room was romantic, big, clean with a big shower/bath: everything you need. I especially liked the cute bar at the swimming pool: ask whatever alcoholic drank you want and Amin(the manager of this road) will make it for you. The pool was clean and refreshing after visiting marrakech-city.
The breakfast was fresh and yummie! The employees were very friendly, even when I was sick and had to vomit everywhere: they took care of me as there own daughter and made especially light food for me and thee to recover. I felt like in paradise.
Me and my boyfriend wanted to do a spa together(without other people) and the spa of the owner in the centre of marrakech-city was perfect!

Room Tip: I saw all the rooms and the looked all very nice!

We stayed for one week in July in this beautifull place.
Amine, the manager, drove us anyware we wanted (for free offcourse!) During the day we visited Marrakesh but arround 2o’clock in the afternoon, we returned to the hotel to escape from the heat of Marrakesh so we could relaxe 2 hours at the simming pool.
In our eyes the perfect combination of visiting the city and relax.
So we ware fit to go to the city in de evening because marakech at night is very magical!
The owner of the Riad was very friendly and helped us with tips, reservations of restaurants, tours... What ever we wanted (although he has his own restaurant in the Riad). We ate there only our last evening and it was nice typical maroc food of the region.
Our room was very big and clean (for us, that is very important)
We had a really big bath for 2 persons (or 3 :)) with a sky of stars. The decoration of the rooms and the whole Riadhotel were modern and cosy with typical lights of Marrakesh, it created a romantic atomsphere.
The persons who worked here were very friendly and openminded. My girlfriend could swim in bikini without a problem, and drink alcohol! This seems normal but we had in other hotels more problems with that.

Last tip: don’t hesitate and book, we assure you will have a great stay. Just ask everything you want and they will help you with a big smile!

Room Tip: we had the first room at the lift, with big bad

My partner and I were booked into this hotel the night before we arrived in Morocco after our initial hotel told us they had building issues, we were driven out to the address in the evening by taxi after arriving at the airport. The hotel was nowhere to be found and was completely uncontactable, the area was desolate and dangerous. After driving around for over an hour we stopped, and then ended up being harassed by a group of young men trying to get us to stay elsewhere, at one stage my partner and I got separated by the group and I was very concerned about being attacked. We eventually got back into the taxi and refused to move or engage with anyone until we were taken back to Marrakech where we where kindly assisted by the hotel Atlas Asni, by this stage I was in tears and very stressed out, the hotel also tried to contact Villa Rayane and also had no luck, the number, address and details of the hotel were not listed and nobody had heard of them. The booking company has since confirmed that this hotel did not exist and kindly refunded our money. Please I warn you to be very careful of other hotels like this.

Hello Charlotte,
I would like to say to you that we never were in contact with a travel agency concerning your booking. As it was the day before your arrival that you have been confirmed in our Villa, we've never been contacted whatsoever. If you read the other comments which are unanumously positive, I can confirm you that we are a boutique hotel of high standard and reputation.
I'm very sorry that you had this awful experience, but unforunately I was not aware.
Best regards Bart Dejonckeere, owner of Villa Rayane.

We, a group of 5 Belgian women, stayed there one night and we had a great time. The villa is a 10 min. drive away from the busy (and sometimes LOUD) city of Marrakech. We enjoyed the silence of the hotel. We appreciated the calm and peaceful surroundings and slept like babies the entire night. The rooms all have a different theme, and we stayed in the Moroccon and African room. The decoration is well-chosen and elegant. The staff is very helpful and kind, which is always appreciated! We much enjoyed our complimentary meal (kefta) and afterwards we had a few drinks on the terrace outside. Unfortunately we didn’t find the time to take a swim in the inviting pool, for that we will have to return someday. And we will!
