“Highly recommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

The welcome and hospitality we received from Sara and her family and staff helped to make the holiday a positive and unforgettable experience.
We were collected at the airport and we ate in the Riad on the first night as we arrived quite late in the evening. We had contacted Sara prior to our trip to make arrangements.The meals and breakfasts were served on the roof terrace and were excellent.We especially enjoyed the fresh orange juice in the mornings.
The information we were given and maps were really helpful and Sara was always around to help.
I would recommend this Riad to anyone visiting Marrakech.

We spend a wonderful week in the Riad Tamarrakecht beginning of April.
The Riad is only a 10min walk away from the Djemna el Fna.
What makes this riad really special is the care and hospitality of Sara and her family.
Sara and her family will take care of anything you require and will also organize taxis, tours etc.
The rooms are very nice and clean. Each room has a different style and is furnished with traditional moroccan furniture. The rooms are located around the atrium. The roof terrace is splendid and a great escape from the busy town to relax and enjoy the sun. You can also have your breakfast (which is very good) on the roof terrace - a great start in to the day.
The home cooked food is delicious and the best food we had during our stay. Many thanks to Sara's mom.
We spend an amazing time in Marrakesch!

We can highly recommend the Riad Tamarrakecht and we are looking forward to our next stay.

Lovely family run Riad in the old city. Beautifully decorated spacious rooms. Wonderful service and advice. Delicious food. Bab Aylan is the closest gate, and it is only a 10-15 minute walk from the main square Jamaa al Fna.
A friend and I had a 4 night stay at this Riad in April. When we arrived we were greeted with Moroccan tea and great hospitality. The room was much nicer than we expected, it was in fact beautiful and spacious and quite romantic. It had lots of Moroccan charm, presented in a clean and modern fashion. The bed was a king size and there was adequate storage space.
The rooftop terrace was perfect for breakfast and for lounging in the afternoon sun.
The family who run it are all very nice people and will go out of their way to help.
We were very comfortable there. It felt relaxed and friendly and I would highly recommend it to anyone planning a trip to Marrakech.

We stayed at the Riad Tamarrakecht at the start of March 2014 and we couldn't have wished for a more beautiful Riad, with such wonderful, friendly staff.

From the beginning the staff - particularly Sara - helped us organise everything. Sara helped us arrange spas, taxis, hotels and was so friendly and accommodating.

The location was great and just a 10 minute walk to Djemaa El Fna square. We felt safe and had no problems, particularly with the help of the hand drawn maps!

The room was beautiful, spacious and comfortable and was such fantastic value. A particular highlight was breakfast on the roof terrace - the food was lovely and plentiful.

We couldn't recommend Riad Tamarrakecht highly enough and if (and when) we go back to Marrakech we would definitely stay there again.

If you're thinking of going to Marrakech, stay here!

This is a lovingly restored Riad located near the Bab Aylan in the medina of Marrakech. Sarah and her brother who run the hotel couldn't be kinder and more helpful. Every room is different and all are lovely. The rooftop terrace is great for breakfast and provides a fscinating view of the city. The breakfasts are fantastic! Highly recommended if you prefer staying in the warren-like medina over the Ville Neuve, with its broad avenues ans more familiar characterisics. I love the exotic, so I thoght this place was just perfect!

Room Tip: Every room is different and has a different price.

The rooms are very clean and nicely decorated. The food is delicious and the friendly hosts do everything to ensure that you are spending an amazing time in Marrakesch! The location is central but right outside the main tourist spots. Consider their offer to send a driver to the airport. The price is fair and the hostel is not so easy to find - at least our taxi driver had some problems.

Morocco , Moroccon people and specially riad has given me happiness beyond my imagination , such a wonderful break with such loving people. Sara is like a sister , always smiling and always saying " no problem , I will do it for you " and all ur tension vanishes ,and always saying YES never heard her saying no even once in seven days . Read so many reviews on trip advisor but not satisfied with even single riad but after reading this riad reviews I had searched no more n booked it immediately . Had a lovely time with them like in our own house very relaxing n enjoyable n my 6 years old son fell in love with Sara n mukhtar . Rooms are perfect n clean . If anyone is thinking about staying in this riad , stop thinking n book straight away u will not have a single complain
In the end , thank u Sara for everything for muslah, for hot water , for haider birthday celebrations, for yummy breakfast , for ur smiles , for the lovely chats , for arranging everything with best intentions . U r great n ur morocco is greatest and thank u for letting us play with KID n memish .
Thanks to ur mum n dad n everyone in the house . Kiss kiss
