“A week of paradise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013 via mobile

Wonderful stay in an extremely friendly and welcoming Riad. Great location, staff were caring and accommodating to all our needs and always went the extra mile. Noah our baby was well looked after and loved by all the staff. A great place to relax and hang out away from the madness of the Medina! The breakfasts and evening meal tagine's are so gooood!! Thank you to Ismail and the team for making our honeymoon a special one. Xx

We have just spent one night here with the kids. It is absolutely amazing although pretty expensive. We chose it as it is so close to the main square and it has a plunge pool. We were only there for a night so wanted to make it work out for the kids as they had never been. Location was perfect - not too much walking for them and the pool for us was crucial so they could cool down and chill! Roof terrace fab! We did alot of searching and this riad was also able to fit four of us in one room - many of the others didnt have rooms big enough.

Dear guest,

Thank you for visiting Riad l'Orangeraie and for your favourable review.

We are grateful for letting us know that you had an amazing time at the riad
with your children. The rate that you paid was for four people staying in
one room which might explain why you found it more than the usual rate.
Previous guests have enjoyed the pool. It is a real advantage during the hot
months and rare in the medina.

The whole team looks forward to having you and your family stay with us
again soon.

Cyril and the whole team at l'Orangeraie

I travelled alone to Marrakech and had an excellent time partly due to Morocco and partly due to the wonderful Riad Orangeraie. It was clean, comfortable and convenientally located. the staff were extremely friendly,helpful and catered to your every need without being overbearing, They arranged trips which were excellent even giving me a free excursion with a driver and guide when the previous driver was late turning up. They offered suggestions and whilst out in Marrakesh I broke my arm. The staff could not have been more helpful with this and took me to a pharmacy to help. I have travelled fairly extensively and this is the best place I have ever stayed hands down.

Room Tip: I stayed in the Saffron room which was comfortable, private and quiet

This Riad is faultless. It offers everything you would want from the amazing location in the heart of Marrakech with the unparalleled service of a five star hotel. I am beyond particular with my requests and spent 2 years planning, with the help of the owner my 40th birthday party. I had friends and family fly in from all over the world, including ourselves from the USA. Nothing was too much trouble from the camel rides, the specialist menus, transport requests, snake charmers, belly dancers and so much more. It was wonderful to escape the cold of the UK and US and dine under the stars on the roof terrace. To wake up in the morning and have a sumptious breakfast waiting as the sun beamed down with a cool breeze. I hired the whole Riad and would strongly recommend doing this. The price is extremely competitive and you genuingly feel it is your home for the days you are there. I have travelled extensively world wide and can honestly say it checked all the boxes for me and far exceeded my expectations (which is rare to say the least). Thank you to all at the Riad for making my birthday so memorable not just for myself but all my guests. This is a place for everyone - my party ranged in ages from 6 months to 76 years old and we ALL loved it.

Room Tip: Hire the whole Riad!

Having decided to take a long weekend in Marrakesh , we embarked on the tricky task of picking a Riad from the many listed. This place had been recommended by a friend who had stayed and gave good reports on the experience. we had a terrific time. The Riad was stunning and the people couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful. A very cool place and great value.

I have celebrated a round birthday at the riad with 27 guests. Cyril, the owner and Ismail, the manager, took care of every detail of this arrangement from the first written contact until the last guest had departed. I have never before been so relaxed about a party, so pleased about the esthetic surroundings, the delicious food and amazing program with local musicians and bellydancer managed to engage all the guests in joining the dance to celebrate life !
The party was an unforgettable event for all my guest and I can warmly recommend celebrations at the riad for others !

The staff of the riad is very helpful in advicing and and organizing excursions from the riad.
We were a group of 27 people -from age 5 months to 87 years from different countries and with differing interest.The riad staff managed to accomodate all our interests and arranged trips to Essaouira, the Ourika Valley, and the High Atlas. The excursions went smoothly and even water for our trips was provided !

The riad in itself is an oasis. There has been a lot of thought to the physical frames - the
simplicity and harmony of colours and objects leave room for integrating impulses from the complex life of Marrakech - or the troubles and stresses of life at home. The gentleness and attentiveness of the staff is balsam for the soul. This aspect of retreat could make the riad a perfect place for work elated seminars.
The riad is immaculately clean , the beds are refreshed every day and it is a dream to fall asleep between rose petals and lit candles of the bedrooms ! A special thanks for the wonderful women of the riad !!!

The best food in Marrakech is at the riad itself !

The whole staff deserves a big bouquet of roses !

We are now very use to organising events at the riad but we are always happy to read that everything went perfectly and that all our guests are satisfied.

Thank you so much for giving us a special stay in Morocco! This riad has the friendliest, most helpful and kind staff you can imagine. The rooms are so delicate and beautiful, rose petals on the bed and candles are lit at night in the room and elsewhere in the riad. We travelled with two small children/baby, and the staff were so attentive and friendly to them. No stress at all! A special thanks to Aziz who served us a great meal by the pool aswell as good conversations, we really appreciated it! Breakfast - a highlight of the day,super! fresh juice, pastries, bread, fruit and delicious yoghurt. The party for our mother was perfect, we know there is a whole lot of thought and planning to make it such a success. thank you! It was hard coming back home to 'real life' after such a pleasant stay. We are dreaming of our next trip already!

Room Tip: All the rooms are fantastic. We had a room with an immense bathtub, perfect for us with kids.
