“A birthday to remember!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

We arrived as a party of six to celebrate a landmark birthday of mine & were welcomed with charm & simple efficiency. A wonderful place to stay, quiet & peaceful but central to all the fantastic Marrakech bustling sights & sounds. Breakfasts & rests on the always sunny rooftop terrace were especially poignant.
Lolita & her staff are simply fantastic & deserve all the praise I can give - I would certainly go back to Marrakech & would certainly stay at Dar Maia again. Love to you all.

Stayed April 2013, traveled with friends

Having spend time in Marrakesh before, I had certain expectations in mind.
We only had five days away from work and being the first time away from our babe, we were determined to have a great time, what ever happens.
Without a shadow of a doubt, arriving at this Riad was a beautiful surprise, and set standard for the rest of our time away.

Having being recommended by family, we chose to take the transfer from the airport, straight to the riad, expecting to rush straight out for dinner in the square.
Instead we found ourselves wandering around the riad, drinking tea, being shown the few empty rooms, all as beautifully decorated as ours all in vibrant colours, and chatting with the lovely staff and guests.

Madam Lolita runs a tight ship, with the most helpful and friendly staff, keeping fresh flowers, bread, fruit, yogurts and of course Moroccan tea at any hour, all immaculate rooms and roof terrace.
Lolita went above and beyond for us, resulting in the most perfect holiday.

Thanks to all at Riad Dar Maia

Our stay was only a short one, but the owner and staff, could not have been more welcoming and helpful. Very conveniently situated. Near to all the main sites and tourist attractions. But in a very quiet position. Breakfasts on the roof terrace were a great bonus.

Room Tip: Look at all the rooms on internet, our room was a bit dark and cold, the en suites are on the small...

Had a really great time in Marrakech, Riad Dar Maia made it even better. Situated in the centre of the city. It is very comfortable and is 5-10 mins from most of the main sights.Friendly staff, great breakfast and sunny rooftop terrace. Will go back to marrakech and would stay here again.

Thanks Lolita

Room Tip: There's a room on the roof terrace

We spent 10 days in Morocco and used Marrakech as base, staying at Dar Maia on 3 separate nights.

Rooms are clean and so quiet - hard to believe its only 5 minutes to the main square. Beds were comfortable and offered a decent breakfast.

The staff were very helpful and friendly.

Would stay at Dar Maia if we were to return to Marrakech.

Room Tip: Imane offers a taxi to pick up from the airport - it's worth it to be shown into the riad as wi...

My second visit this year, this time I booked the whole Riad for a friends 50th birthday on my recommendation. All six guests were over the moon, pretty spotlessly clean rooms, a wonderful roof terrace, attentive staff, brilliant location in the hub of everything but an oasis of peace inside. Bliss. Till next time.....

Room Tip: Book the whole Riad, take your friends!!!

For those who seek a warm welcoming riad in the centre of the city, with clean rooms and an excellent view from the roofterras: Riad Dar Maia is your choice! Owner Maria and manager Imane take care of the place with love for it's customers and personell and this is what you feel once you've entered the narrow door in one of the mazes of the medina of Marrakech. The rooms are simple but have a great atmosphere and the showers are always warm. The Price: around 240 MAD per night which is a very good price!
