“Incredible Hosts and Beautiful Riad! Perfect Stay in Marrakesh”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

It's so funny that the reviewer before me said it was his first review because this is mine as well on TripAdvisor and it's because Nadine and Al were just excellent excellent hosts! From our pickup at the airport (seamless), to welcoming us to Marrakesh and the riad, and helping us find our way around the medina (finding snacks/food even though it was the middle of Ramadan, key places to see, shopping e.g., great places to buy babouches - Moroccan slippers, maps and written directions, etc.) - they were just so wonderful, kind, and thoughtful. Breakfast was delicious and they were so great about our dietary restrictions (I still dream about that amazing bread Nadine baked). I think a great illustration of how thoughtful these two are is when Al took me and my boyfriend on a quick tour of the main square, Jemaa el-Fnaa, I mentioned never having seen green figs before and the next morning they were on a small plate in the midst of our breakfast feast! The riad itself is stunning (and easy to find - near Ben Salah Mosque) - my artist boyfriend still remarks on how beautiful their use of local materials and incorporating and modernizing local design is. And not only is the architecture gorgeous, but the furnishings, pool (so perfect after a long hot day of walking!), and beautiful view of the sky (complete with little birds chirping!), were all so lovely. I could honestly go on about how amazing these two and the welcoming oasis they've built all are but I hope you get to experience it for yourself instead! I once read a great quote about writing reviews and it seems fitting here - I could adorn the night sky with all the stars I want to give Al and Nadine!

OK this is my first ever review, and thats because this place really does deserve one, or even a thousand more excellents. Everything anyone has said before is 100% true. Everything about this Riad is perfect, and Nadine knows I do not use too many words, when one is sufficient. So please take note people. PERFECT, or even two words wonderfull.

Thanks so much Nadine and Alaine, for what you enjoy doing, and do so well.

Staying at Riad Alnadine was definitely one of the highlights of our trip to Morocco. It was absolutely gorgeous, stylish, and clean, in a great location in the medina, but moreover, Alaine and Nadine were unbelievable. They were truly the most kind and helpful hosts we've ever had. They literally went the extra mile in everything and seemed to enjoy making our time in Marrakech the best that it could be. It was so great meeting you! Merci beaucoup!! (Meredith et Joel)

We stayed in this lovely Riad for 2 nights in July and had a lovely experience. Nadine and Alain were such graceful hosts- they really went the extra mile to make our stay with them as lovely as possible. They explained how to get around the medina, printed us some maps, advised us on which attractions to visit, and even accompanied us to Jemaa El Fna (a 5 minute walk) to show us where the best restaurants were situated, also giving us general advice on what to pay for goods and services.

Our room, Warda, was quiet and peaceful. It didn't face the streets which is a blessing in Marrakech as it can get very noisy in the medina. The king sized bed was very comfortable, and the air-conditioning helped us survive the mid-summer temperatures. The Riad also boasts a pool, making it feel like a true oasis.

The breakfasts were delicious and they always served more food than we could eat. Nadine's home-made yogurt and freshly squeezed orange juice were particularly special.

Its proximity to all major attractions made it very easy to explore the medina.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and appreciate how Nadine and Alain made us feel at home and welcomed us like we were part of their family. Thank you!

An amazing riad, immaculately kept, in the heart of Marrakech. A 5-10 minute walk from the Jemma-Al-Fnar (main square) through the backstreets, it is perfect for exploring the city from a relaxing base. We found Al and Nadine to be legendary in their hospitality; they catered for our every need, and provided a brilliant breakfast every morning. Highly recommended.

Apologise for the late review, this is suppose to be during May period :)

My cousin and me were travelling the first time in Morocco (4 days and 3 nights). We have no idea how it is going to be like and we are on very tight schedule. When we met Alain, he was great! He guided us and share with us of the things we can do in Marrakesh! We initially book a camel tour for a day and so we can't stay in the raid for a night. Alain and Nadine allow us to place our stuff safely in our room and also on the next morning make us a great Breakfast and they knew we are in a rush, they prepared it early in the morning.

After the camel tour, we came back around the evening, the Riad is so beautiful, i have taken some pictures and it looks like we are in a palace haha!

On the last day, we wanted to go for a Hammam and again we are on tight schedule. Mr Alain not only help us book it but even walk with us to it, when we finish the Hammam, he came and fetch us and walked back with us and also like a tour guide, explaining the beautiful, magical place around us.

Of all my travel, even a five star hotel could not be compared to this service. Thank you Mr Alain and Nadine for this wonderful experience in Marrakesh, we will certainly choose this riad again when we are back.

We were picked up by our host Alain who took us to the lovely riad. It was the first place we stayed (19-21 June) of a 9 day trip around morocco; what a fantastic place to start our trip. The riad is in a great location as it is central to the main square yet an oasis of calm. Our room was extremely clean and comfortable; in fact the whole riad was immaculate. Alain and Nadine couldn't have been more helpful throughout our stay. They provided us with an incredible feast for breakfast which fueled us for the day. The roof terrace had lots of places to sit and relax of which we made use of each day. We would thoroughly recommend this riad as it was a joy to stay here. We will certainly return. Alice and Harriott
