“Cozy and charming, with a gracious hostess”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

We stayed here for one night and wished we had more time to spend at this lovely family owned riad. It is very well decorated and the rooms are stunning, and have modern amenities. Lovely breakfast on the terrace! The owner's daughter Sara was a most gracious and informative hostess who gave us an excellent map of the route to the main square, and her brother was very helpful with the breakfast and other needs. The owner is very polite and personally made sure we were well cared for. And the roaming cats were a special attraction for the children. We hope we will be back one day for a longer stay!

We had a great stay in Tamarrakecht. Nice staff, great location, beautiful hotel, breakfast on the rooftop. Our flight arrived late at night and departed early in the morning, but the staff helped us to get to the airport on time with delicious breakfast before sunrise. I have never seen such a good hospitality, book in advance because this place deserves to be fully booked all year round!

I gave the quality of sleep a 3 out of 5, but that's only because I was traveling with my mom and she snores. We had to share the (big) bed, two separate beds would have been better in our situation.

Room Tip: Reserve in advance

We stayed here for two nights at the beginning of our trip, and had a lovely time. Sara is a great host and was really helpful in answering any of our questions and giving directions. Sara organised a transfer from the airport which was effortless and great after arriving at night. The rooms are lovely and feel quite grand, and the breakfast on the rooftop in the sunshine was the best breakfast we had on our trip!
The riad is about a 10 min walk to the Jemaa el-Fnaa (main square), however it is an easy walk and gives you a taste of life in Marrakech. I also liked that the riad was away from the hustle and bustle of the main tourist area, and is so quiet once you step inside the doors.

My partner and I stayed in this Riad for a week mid December. The Riad is small but homely and has an authentic feel. We stayed in two of the rooms available both of which were very pleasant. The food we requested for our night of arrival was better than much of the food we experienced in top restaurants during our stay. What makes this place so very good is the owner. The owner is English speaking and she went out of her way to ensure we had everything we needed for a terrific break. No request was too difficult and believe me my partner made plenty!!! I have no hesitation in adding my 5 rating to the many others this Riad has achieved.

Had a very relaxed stay here.
Sara and Mokhtar are nice and welcoming! You get greeted Mint tea and moroccan sweets on arrival.
We stayed one night in the Bab Agnaou and two nights in the Bab Ighli.
Both pretty rooms with very comfy beds. There is no wifi reception inside the Bab Ighli though in case that is important to you.

We stayed Mid December. Airport pickup was prompt well-arranged no hassle, very glad we took the option as the guy walked us to the door and waited till Sara opened the door.

Very warm welcome, the raid looked gorgeous. Was satisfied with our room the only down side was the toilet had a strong smell of the drainage system.

The explanation and map Sara gave us was very helpful, good advice on our first day which saved us loads of hassle and time throughout the trip.

Will definitely recommend as Sara and her brother make you feel at home and quite relaxed, they are very friendly and welcoming.

Thanks
