“Definitely recommend!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2014

We stayed here for a girls a trip in February.

Brilliant location and food.

The staff couldn't have been more accommodating and helpful.

The Riad Manager advised on local spots to visit and eat, going as far to act as a guide and book us into restaurants.

Would recommend for families, couples and groups.

Only negative would be the price of alcohol.

Would highly recommend!

We stayed 2 nights twice during our holiday in Marocco. Very nice place. Quiet at night despite the location in the middle of the noisy and busy Marrakech. The staff were extremly helpfull, and the manager Tim made us feel almost at home. Beautiful rooms, nice atmosphere. If ever in Marrakech again, we will be back.

This is such a nice riad. With so many to choose from, this one is really worth a visit and stay. It is very close to the main square, with only 10 minute walk away, it make take longer if you stop at all the shops along the way! The rooms are of a good size and have a nice decor. The rooftop of the riad is amazing, with stunning views of The Atlas Mountains. It is a real sun catcher, with plenty of shade if you need it. There are even two tortoises up there. The staff are so friendly, nothing is too much trouble. They make you feel really welcome. The breakfast is good. If I return to Marrakech, I would stay here again, without a doubt!

We had a very pleasant stay with warm and friendly staff. We found Tim the manager to be very friendly and capable with a willingness to help with any question that was asked of him. We would certainly try to stay there, should we visit Marrakech again.

We had a wonderful stay at this Riad - the location was perfect and the bedrooms and communal rooms were very comfortable and well decorated. One of the best things about the accommodation was the welcoming helpful staff. Nothing was too much trouble and they went out of their way to make our stay comfortable. On returning to the UK I discovered I had lost a piece of jewellery, the staff hunted it down and sent it too my in a lovely little package. Will definitely recommend and return in the future!

After spending some time in other riads in Marrakech, we searched for the best combination of price and quality and we found it in riad Africa. The roof terras was beautiful, quiet and sunny with sunbeds and enough places for everyone to lounge. Our room was big enough, the beds/pillows were amasingly comfortable. The water pressure of the shower could've been higher, though its warm and the shower is clean and big. After a long day of walking we could always drink a cup of tea in our room. Tim the manager gave us really useful advice and showed us around. The rest of the staff is also dedicated and friendly. We had an amazing time. Thank you riad Africa!

Great location (albeit a bit hard to find at first) to all the sites in Merrakech.
Rooms were fantastic for a room in the heart of the city and the service was exceptional. Tim and his staff were very friendly and went out of their way to be helpful.

Definitely recommend Riad Africa! And if you do stay, order the meal at least once. The beef, prune tagine was very tasty.
