“A Palace !!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2007

Me & my wife stayed here in the royal suite for three nights recently. It was one of the best stays ever, and we travel a lot ... so you can imagine that we are quite demanding.

The riad is very authentic and is very luxorious. Under Giovanni's guidance, the staff is extremely polite/responsive/helpful.

It made our stay in marrakech really memorable. Will go again !!

Our recent stay at Riyad Al Moussika was really enjoyable. The personal welcome on our arrival by the owner , Giovanni, was a lovely touch and the the staff's attitude throughout our stay was a delight.

Our biggest surprise however was the magnificent accomodation superbly decorated and designed to create an atmosphere of peace and quality which is often sought after by the hotel industry but so rarely achieved. We were left with a feeling of being guests in your magnificent home rather than staying in a hotel.

The food at Riad Al Moussika was superb and has led us to realise the excellent cuisine available in Morrocco.

I shall be sure to steer any friends visiting Marrakech to Riad Al Moussika, confident they will be equally well received.

We had another superb and memorable anniversary at the beautiful Riyad Al Moussika. Going back anywhere for a second time is always a risk – but we had such a lovely time and everything was just as special as we had remembered it. I am sure that now, in Marrakech, there are many lovely Riads, but nothing compares to Riad Al Moussika. This is because of the gracious welcome the owner, Mr Robazza, the mastermind, provides, and the wonderful service all the ‘boys’ give. Nothing is too much trouble and they always make us feel as though we are the only people in the world.

The food – as ever – was magnificent! Khalid, the Chef is so talented !.

We will be back again next year Insh’Allah. What is a sure sign of the unique experience Riad Al Moussika provides is that although we are ‘paying customers’, we always feel so grateful to be allowed to stay there. It is a privilege.

My husband Ron and I had a brilliant time in Marrakech and really enjoyed staying at Riyad al Moussika. It is a truely beautiful place with brilliant service and thoughtful attention to detail.
I particularly liked the roses that were put in our room and then found their way into the fountain in the court yard! The food was fabulous and plentiful and we felt very pampered.

Our holiday couldn't have been any better.

With my family I have spent three days at Riad Al Moussika to celebrate my 70th birthday and it has been a magical event!

My family always spoils me, but this was beyond the call of duty!! Everything was perfect and the most exquisite Riad Al Moussika contributed in no small way.

We have travelled a great deal in the world, but unanimously have voted the Riad Al Moussika the best! The staff was superb and delightful: Nothing was too much trouble and they were charming with the children, what a perfect team!

The banquet for my birthday was a triumph and it will be long remembered by us all.
We will back!!

Riad Al Moussika is a charming little property in the heart of the Medina. The service is outstanding, the lunches (which are included) are amazing and property is absolutely breathtaking!
I had a great time and Giovanni is the perfect host!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Riad Al Moussika - For comfort, style and refinement. THE Riad experience in Marrakech! Situated in the ancient medina of Marrakech, five minutes walk from place Jemaa El Fna, the Riyad was once one of the residences of the former Pasha of Marrakech, Thami El Glaoui, and has been refurbished to a very high standard in the Andalucian style. One of the gates of Riyad Al Moussika opens on to a garden with old cypress trees soaring to the sky, a huge bougainvillea climbing across the pergolas, a swimming pool, in the centre or, more precisely, an Andalucian basin thirteen meters long, tiled with a mosaic carpet design. Here water falls from a white Carrara marble fountain to the songs of numerous small birds creating an idyllic scenario, in spite of being in the heart of central medina. A fireplace gives the winter evenings a cosy atmosphere, as do the impressive modern paintings, carpets, sofas and armchairs. There is a hi-fi system and an art deco Pleyel grand piano perfectly tuned for the pleasure of the guests. The Turkish bath or hammam in white marble with a relax room where, on request, a professional masseur can take care of the guests. There is a unique view of the medina and the Atlas Mountains from the two terraces that are sheltered partially with wooden pergolas and surrounded by large terracotta flower vases. Tables, comfortable armchairs with cushions and teak chaises-long allow guests to request breakfast and candle lit dinner, as well as to sunbathe during the day. On one of the terraces there is a pavilion with Moroccan sofas, cushions and lamps should some of the guests prefer a more intimate space. The resident Chef, Grand Diploma Cordon Bleu, has devoted his life to gastronomy and invites lovers of fine dining to experience his repertoire of Moroccan, Italian and French cuisine at the haute Cuisine riyad's Restaurant PEPE NERO. There are 4 double bedrooms, all with en-suite bathroom. All rooms have air-conditioning / heating system, telephone with external line, television with the major satellite channels (BBC, CNN etc.), Internet wireless connection is available and DVD in the music room. ... more   less
