We visited in May 2011 (so a bit of a delay in our review). The Riad was beautiful (I'll add a few pictures). We stayed in the white room on the terrace, it was clean and cosy and we really enjoyed waking up to breakfast on the terrace every morning. All of the staff were helpful and friendly, and made our stay as comfortable and as enjoyable as possible. On our arrival we were helped to our room, given mint tea and given a map and a general guide to the area - tips of where to go, prices to pay etc. perfect! During our stay the weather was very hot, but with air con in the room we could relax in the room to cool down after wandering the bustling souks. The price for the stay was fantastic, a real gem of a riad - comfortable, inexpensive, great staff. If we ever make it back to Marrakech we will definitely seek out Riad Dar Maia for our stay again. Thanks for the great visit Riad Dar Maia, don't think we would've enjoyed it as much if it wasn't for our lovely stay with you!
Just another note to readers...as much as the fresh orange juice in the square can be a refreshing treat be careful where you buy it - some of them put ice in or water them down, we were unlucky and had some watered down juice - we had food poisoning, it was awful, we were very poorly. The staff at the Riad looked after us very well though and we can't thank them enough for their kindness.
