“A really lovely place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

My daughter and I recently stayed here, it was an oasis of calm away from the craziness of Marrakech, it is in a great location, easy to walk around, lovely rooms, simply decorated, lovely food, great atmosphere, very much made to feel at home. However, what really made our trip was the kindness, the helpfulness and genuine friendliness and care that Youssef, Yasmeen and the rest of the staff gave us, they couldn't have been nicer, we will definitely be back- we highly recommend it

Room Tip: we looked into several of the rooms, they are all lovely, the one on the ground floor on the right h...

We have just stayed in El sagaya and it was a lovely experience. I don't think I could have coped with the madness I marrakech without the riad to go home to. Knowing I had a place to escape to was an important factor in me having a Good time.

The riad itself is gorgeous. There is a pool in the center which you can swim in however I didn't see anyone swim while we were there. The rooms are a good size, authentic looking and have good air conditioning. There is no noise from the street so it is very peaceful.

The staff were friendly. The two girls didn't speak much English but helped where they could. They also cooked the best lunch we had and it was very good value, 100 dirhams i think. There was a guy (who's name escapes me) who was lovely and a great help. We shared his shish with him on the roof terrace which is absolutely beautiful.

I would definitely go back to this riad if I went back to marrakech.

Fantastic riad, an oasis of calm and tranquility in the heart of the medina. Beautiful, simple traditional rooms, great friendly, cheerful and helpful staff, lovely rood top terrace. Well placed for walking to all the sites. I wish I could have stayed longer - recommended!

Room Tip: All the rooms are lovely and even those nearest the street are amazingly quiet.

I thought this place was nice but now I am home I realise our holiday would not of have been the same without it it. It is such a calm tranquil place. The street outside is mental! Marrakech generally is mental so this was a lifeline for ensuring we had some peace and restful periods. The guy that works there is a credit to the place, very genuine, friendly and welcoming. We had many chats over mint tea on the roof terrace with the dog & the tortoise as the sun was setting. The girls who do the cleaning & breakfast are very sweet and smiley and spend the whole day cleaning- our room was cleaned everyday. It was 38 degrees during our trip so although the pool was freezing it was very appreciated, as was the air con in the room at night, the coolness of the riad generally and the breeze that you can get up on the lovely roof terrace. In the first few days I was put off by the half hour walk to the main square via the easy main roads- in the heat it feels like hard work but then we discovered the much shorter & more interesting route through the souks (20 mins) and found that that provided we walked back to the riad around 9 this was safe. Walk back any later through the souks and they get a bit sketchy- cue lots of lurking figures aggressively insisting the "the road is closed" "that way only lead to the mosque" etc etc! Breakfast is the same everyday, basic but nice and good for the price of the riad (coffee, fresh orange juice, moroccan pancakes, bread & jam).

I stayed here with my man and our 2 kids (the youngest was only 9months old). We booked the Douiria suite. The room is actually huge and beautifully decorated. The rooftop terrace is great to relax on. The ground floor with the pool is wonderful when you get in the first time you know you will love the place already. We had the perfect stay, especially thanks to Yacinne and the girls Hanan and Bouchra, they made everything (and more) to make us feel at home.

i have not rated anywhere as 5 star but this place is exactly what i needed and what people should expect from a riad in marrakech. a quiet oasis in the middle of the crazy medina you do feel like you are another world away. the reception area is beautiful and relaxing. the rooms are luxurious without being pretentious. the best part of the place is the terrace on the roof which has sunbeds, shisha tables and cushions everywhere. the hotel staff also bring breakfast up to the terrace so you can eat in the sun.
the staff are wonderful- so friendly and accommodating.i would recommend this place to everyone.

We stayed in the Aladdin room which took us by surprise as it was literally next door to the breakfast and reception. That said it wasn't a problem falling out of bed into a beautiful homemade breakfast of crepes, fresh orange juice and hot coffee. The rooms were spotless and cleaned every day, staff were friendly and welcoming. The peace and quiet is such a welcome from the mad world of the souks and the roof top terrace is a pleasant way to chill out after a hard days shopping. The price is reasonable. Marjorella gardens a short stroll away and once you get used to the area, this riad is easy enough to find and about a 20 minute stroll to the main square.
