“Excellent reasonably priced Riad”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2014

Michelle and I arrived late evening to our well-appointed room and comfortable bed. The next morning super helpful Renaud, owner of the Riad, showed us on a map where we were, and gave recommendations for places to visit and eat. (And excellent recommendations they were too!)
The Riad is five minutes walk from the northern side of the chaos and cacophony that makes up the Souks and about 20 minutes walk from Jardin Majorelle - a perfectly tranquil little oasis to escape to when you get tired of the pace of the souks.
Renaud and his team of people made sure that we were taken care of - going way beyond our expectations, and I'm sure they'll do the same for you, if you make this your home for a few days in Marrakech!

Arrived late at night to a very nice prearranged, 3 course dinner. There was a choice of vegetarian or chicken tagine and wine and beer if desired. The following morning the owner of the riad, Renaud, was very helpful and answered all of our questions. He gave us lots of tips and useful guidelines to help us during our stay in Marrakech and provided us with a map.

We enjoyed a plentiful breakfast on the terrace every morning, served by Yousef, who was very obliging. The facilities at this riad are very good for such a reasonable price. There are ipads available for guest's use and as much water or mint tea as you can drink!

Our room (suite) was spacious and traditionally decorated with beautiful furniture and lovely lamps. The bathroom, although not luxurious, was large and had shampoo, soap, shower gel and body lotion. (no conditioner) We looked at the other rooms and they were all of the same high standard. There are several lounge areas around the riad to sit and read or have a snack, the terrace is lovely with orange and olive trees, 2 sunloungers and a variety of seating areas.

One very minor point, is that the 'swimming pool' is not really big enough to swim in! We didn't use it and it didn't affect our stay, but don't build your hopes of of having a nice swim - it's small and situated in the reception area. It is lovely and looks very pretty at night with the floating candles.

The riad is well positioned, 5 minutes walk from the souks and some nice restaurants, 20-25 minutes from the square and taxis from most places within the medina to the riad cost about 20 DAM (£1.50 - 2.00). A taxi to/from the airport is approx £8 - 12 and Le Jardin Majorelle is approx 20 mins walk away.

Room Tip: I don't think that any of the rooms would be a bad choice. All are a generous size.

We recently stayed here for my brothers 40th; the riad is situated in the Medina which is in the heart of the hustle and bustle and only a 20 min walk to the main square. Once in the Riad you forget the craziness outside and you are simply in a little haven, it is beautiful and well-kept the staff are friendly and very helpful nothing is too much trouble. The night we arrived they had prepared us dinner which was fantastic, I would highly recommend eating here and the breakfast on the terrace didn’t disappoint, there is also free bottled water and mint tea available all day. The terrace is well stocked with plants and seating areas so is a great place to chill out. I would highly recommend staying here… We had a fabulous time.

We recently stayed here as a party of 6 for my partners 40th birthday. The riad itself is beautiful - very stylish and authentic but really comfortable and homely at the same time. Lots of lovely chill out areas and breakfast on the terrace was fabulous. The staff were also wonderful and so helpful, although it definitely would help if you can speak some French. We had the sakina room which was beautiful but all the rooms seemed great. One small note about our room was that the toilet was separate to the bathroom which in itself isn't a problem but there was no sink in the toilet so you had to walk across to the bathroom to wash hands etc. However, this is a minor point in what is a really gorgeous place to stay. There is also free water and mint tea all day. We ate in the riad the evening we arrived and the food was delicious. They provided an airport return shuttle for us which was reasonably priced and I believe they also arrange tours if you want although we didn't do this. In terms of location it is in the medina so in the heart of things with a fascinating 15/20 min walk to the main square. In all, we could not have been happier with our choice and would recommend it in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: We were a party of 6 so we got to see 3 out of the 6 rooms and all were lovely and had their own sty...

A beautiful riad away from the hussle and bussle but close enough to walk everywhere. The riad itself is georgeous and the rooms are traditional but comfortable with good amenities. The terrace is a great place to have the yummy breakfast, but the staff really made our trip. They are friendly and hospitable and nothing was too much trouble. They always had a smile on their faces and made sure to introduce themselves on the staff/guest changeover. A real family feel, it felt like staying with relatives!!

We - a family with two little boys - have just come back from a wonderful stay at Riad Terrasse des Oliviers. From the very first moment we felt welcome. Renaud, the Swiss owner, and his Moroccan team looked after us really well: first of all it was totally normal that we arrived with two little kids (which, in fact, in a lot of places is often either expensive due to extra charges or is considered as an exception or some other funny excuse for making things complicated for us...) and we were given a room that was just perfect for a family of four - without any additional charges. Renaud and his team were most welcoming, very helpful and always had inviting smiles on their faces. The Riad itself is nicely designed and we'll looked after. The well equipped breakfast is served on the cosy and sunny terrasse, and if you feel like cooling down after a busy day out you can have a paddle in the small pool in the patio of the Riad. To sum it up: the quality-price-ratio is excellent and we can highly recommend the Riad!

Excellent riad with a great sense of authenticity and character throughout the riad and in the room itself. The service was excellent, homely and friendly. Breakfast on the rooftop terrace was a great start to the day. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful about all things Marrakech and beyond. Would definitely recommend and would definitely stay again. Cosy but has everything one would need for a stay in Marrakech.
