“"Charming riad with a lot of hospitality!"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

The riad was absolutely lovely and comfortable! A perfect location in the middle of everything and yet so relaxing and quiet. Although we only stayed 3 nights Olivier and his team created a warm, generous, familylike feeling and they were very helpful. Nothing was impossible to fix! I would certainly recommend this riad to friends and I would be happy to return!! The little pool with jacuzzi by a huge bananatree was a treat for both the eye and the body. The price was very reasonable! Thanks a lot!

It was simply excellent.

The location, just 5 minutes (or less) walking to the square Jemaa el fna. The area is very safe, even being in a narrow street departing from the main one.

The staff was excellent as well. They were very helpful. We were very pleased.

The room was clean. Some details could be fixed but the overall aspect was great. We were in two different rooms, Hibiscus and Jacaranda. Both perfect. Jacaranda is bigger since it is a suite, but Hibiscus is great and you just go out of the room and go to the pool!

The breakfast was great. Very complete. Even if you go very early in the morning for some reason they will prepare it for you. Just telling them.

The pool was very good! A relaxing place after a long day! The terrace was also great, a relaxing place to rest. We went every night after having a bath and there was no noise at all.

The price was very tight to our expectations. Is a lovely place to stay and take the best from Marrakech. I really recommend it. I will be back, I hope.

Room Tip: I was in Hibiscus and Jacaranda. If you want to save some money Hibiscus is great. If you want somet...

I have just returned from Marrakech where I stayed at Riad Aloes for a week. I chose Riad Aloes due to its location, price, and a VITAL small pool to lounge in. The riad is difficult to find without help, and is situated just off Rue Sidi el Yamani. If coming by taxi from the airport, DO NOT get ripped off by the taxi drivers; you can get a ride for less than 200 dhirams easily. The Riad itself is really lovely, with air conditioned rooms and solar panel heated showers, a patio area in the middle with small pool/jacuzzi and a roof terrace with shaded loungers. The staff are all so helpful, with Olivier the owner always willing to help, the lovely Mustafah on night shifts and a fantastic cleaner. Location is great, just a few minutes walk to the main square.

With fantastic value to top off the impressive accommodation, Riad Aloes is a hotel that I would highly recommend.

My friend and I stayed for 1 week in July/August 2013. The riad is really close to the main square and on a side street so it is quiet. We got a really warm welcome with tea and Olivier and his team were always very friendly and chatted away to us. Our room was really comfortable and cool with a fan and air conditioning (we needed it!) and it was really good in the July heat to have the cool jacuzzi to dip into. The breakfasts were freshly prepared each day for us and it was always something different- crepes, fresh bread, pain au chocolat, as well as fresh fruit and yoghurt; we could eat on the terrace in the sun or indoors under the shade of the huge palm tree. I would definitely recommend this Riad- our friends were very jealous, and we will definitely be visiting again!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Jasmin suite which was lovely

Stayed here for 3 nights during Ramadan. The hotel is 5 minutes walk to Jemma el fna which was great! The pool is refreshing and a must as a cool down from the 40 degree heat! The roof terrace was beautiful and well kept! The host was very friendly and always there to help! For the price I would recommended this riad to anyone!

Stayed here for three nights in July 2013 during Ramadan. Picked up by taxi arranged by Olivier from the riad. We would never have found it by ourselves. Tucked away in a small alley close to the markets. Room was authentic Morrocan and was excellent, It was situated on the ground floor - Hibiscus. The breakfasts were served on the roof terrace and were delicious. Used the small pool/jacuzzi regularly to cool down and chill out under the beautiful banana trees. Olivier arranged the taxi for a day out to the Atlas mountains. He was extremely attentive and always available to answer any questions we had. No hesitation in recommending this beautiful riad.

Room Tip: Hibiscus was on the ground floor facing the courtyard and only a few steps from the small pool/jacuz...

A charming riad in the medina, a very easy ten minute walk to Djemaa el Fna. The rooms, which are set around a beautiful courtyard., are comfortable and immaculate. The breakfast is very good. Everyone was very helpful and very pleasant. Definitely would recommend this riad.

Room Tip: All rooms face the courtyard, and all are excellent.
