“An Oasis in a Magic City”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2014

All in this HOTEL is special, every employee treats guests with a heartfelt smile, the suite we occupied was 242 (THE NADA SUITE), was perfect. Sheets and pillow cases of the best cotton.
Breakfast was served outside in a semi-covered patio around the heated swimming pool. All kinds of goodies were offered as well as omlets, fried eggs etc. We went for dinner at one their restaurants, the morrocan one, and ate a leg of lamb to die for. The staff was always attentive to every one of our needs to the point of having their porter take us to the corner to pick up our pick up vehicles. My wife is campaining all the family to go Marrakesh next year. Obviously to stay at this exceptional RIAD.

Visited La Maison Arabe Spa on the last day of my trip to Morocco this week! I went with a good friend of mine and we thought we'd indulge after hours of relentless (and amazing) sightseeing! We chose a Hammam treatment with Gommage followed by a massage. The place is just beautiful and you are instantly immersed into a relaxing, aromatic atmosphere guaranteed to soothe. If you are having a massage you can pick your oil out of a delightful selection they will have laid out for you. They will also explain how everything will work.

The Hammam is essentially a really good sauna, the Gommage is a really good scrubbing and you also get a lovely hairwash so you are squeaky clean and relaxed. The massage was lovely, very soothing and just the right pressure but they will ask you if you prefer harder or softer.

We chose to have a mint tea in the internal courtyard afterwards and it was delightful with traditional biscuits and the service was ever so attentive. There is also WiFi so if you want to pop a photo on Instagram or tweet about it all - you can do!

I would definitely recommend La Maison Arabe if you are after a touch of luxury at what really is amazing value!!

When getting out of the Taxi and taken down a narrow passage in the depths of the Madina, its easy to be confused. However what greats you is incredible, the welcome is so friendly, the food is great.
If you are tired of walking and need one day of relaxing make sure you go to the Country club.

We loved this hotel! The staff was amazing, the interior architecture and interior design was beautiful. Authentic Morocco with all the comforts of good bedding and wonderful baths. The poolside restaurant was delicious - staff was wonderful about our early departure and provided breakfast for us. Loved it!

We had arranged for a taxi to pick us up at the airport and take us straight to the Riad. It dropped us at the end of an alleyway, and we wondered what we were in for! As we were later to find out, the Riad, as with many other buildings in Marrakech, revealed behind the walls was a superb hidden oasis! We were warmly welcomed by the manager, and because we were a little early for check in, were treated to refreshments in one of the lovely courtyards. We were shown around the entire Riad and then to our room, which had a balcony, overlooking the pool and outdoor restaurant. The room was perfect, clean and welcoming. Plenty of room, with the bathroom more than adequate. All the of the staff couldn't have been more friendly or helpful. they gave us advise on sightseeing and travelling around the town, and they arranged a super trip for us up into the Atlas Mountains. There are two main restaurants, one serving traditional Moroccan fare, and the other a variety. All the food in both restaurants were delicious. The Riad has a traditional Hammam and spa, do try it, it's superb! There are a couple of bars, and every evening we were there, there was a pianist in the jazz bar, a great start to any evening activities! The Riad has a country club, about ten minutes away and we spent a day there. Maybe because of the time of year, we were the only ones there! It has a larger pool, although not heated. We had lunch laid on for us and were waited on though out the day with refreshments. I would highly recommend this wonderful gem, well worth the stay.

This was our third stay at La Maison Arabe, and once again the beauty of the place and the quality of the staff continue to impress. All the other reviewers who praise this hotel rightly identify what it is that makes people love it. It truly is an oasis in the chaos of Marrakech and there isn't anything the staff won't reasonably do to make your stay more comfortable. They really are terrific. The management have made a couple of changes that we personally didn't like to do with the patio area, where they have constructed private verandahs which now occupy the space where a lovely little patio existed previously and we didn't think the menu in the Trois Saveurs restaurant was as varied as it could have been. That said, the food was excellent and the hotel's country club garden was wonderful once again. We love going to Marrakech at this time of year and I wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else.

Room Tip: Get a room on the pool side if you have difficulty with stairs. There's a lift on the pool side.

I know I am late to comment but all I can say is wow. We were greeted and taken care of by a great Guy Adil. His customer service is impeccable. He had a smile at all time. He did his best to accommodate us. The riad was in the old medina and we were going to go for palais de congress but after My husband and I and the kids met Adil we changed our mind. He took the time to give us a tour and also to explain every little detail about the riad from the artwork to the wood work. We were so thrilled that we cancelled our reservation to stay here. We were not disappointed, he kept checking on us and even the kids loved him My Julie and Elias kept asking where is uncle Adil. My hubby was hesitant in the beginning but once he saw that Adil kept his great service he made sure that we will make this place our gateway place from now on. I had to thank him and the rest of the staff. Keep up the great work. You are a great asset I am sure
