“One of the best Riads in Marrakesh”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2012

Riad Shanima is a beautiful riad in the Northern part of the Médina. We stayed in Riad Shanima in March for around a week because of a coincidence: My wife and me chose another Riad but it closed so that we could not stay there. This coincidence was the best thing that could have happened! The whole time we really felt at home and enjoyed the fact that we now stayed in a Riad and spa. We slept in spacious room Oranger, with a wonderful bed and a vast bathroom with two sinks. Asma, the directrice of the Riad, spoke English very well and helped us with reservations in restaurants, gave helpful tips and planned tours for us (one to Essaouira at the seaside, one to the High Atlas mountains and the transfer to the airport). The drivers she organised were always superb - friendly and helpful, being a guide and driver at the same time. ʿĀdil, the gardien, was always in the Riad to help us in the case of questions. Moreover, he fulfilled every wish we had as soon as possible. Wafāʾ perfectly prepared the meals: We enjoyed once our dinner in the Riad - it is a pity that we did only do it once at the end of our stay in Marrakesh. Nadia did everything in the ḥammam and did her work really well: Even though her English was not quite as good as the others’, we could communicate with gestures and smiles without problems. The ḥammam again we tried too late so that we had no possibility to repeat it during our stay. We did not test the massages nor the whirl pool, but it is clear that - with all the spa-facilites they provide - it is worth coming to Riad Shanima only for relaxing and recovering from everyday life.
Our overall-experience was really good and we are already planning to come back next year around the same time.
