“Lovely Riad in a Great Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

Dar Maia has a great location close to the Djemma al Finna but just far enough away to be out of the craziness and noise. It is small and cozy with a beautiful terrace that is nice for enjoying breakfast or just looking out over the city. The owners and employees are all very sweet and helpful and were always happy to help us with whatever we needed. The rooms are simple but nice and the whole place is very clean and well kept. My friends and I stayed four days here and would definitely stay again.

Thanks Alex!

I arrived on very short notice and in peak season, but Alex was extremely helpful, even finding me accommodation nearby, when their Riad was full. He helped plan a perfect adventure in Morocco, suggesting Trips and great accom' in Essaouira. He and his wife took a very personal interest in my well being and comfort, even though very busy opening a new restaurant, the first and only Spanish one in Marrekesh (a welcome change from the delightful tagines everywhere else).
I can not commend the place, location or themselves enough. Go and enjoy.

Senor Alex kindly meet us on our arrival at the airport and transferred us to Riad Dar Maia which is just a few minutes walk from the Jamaa al Fna.

The Riad was clean and peaceful with a delcious breakfast each day! We were made to feel very welcome. Our room itself was lovely and bright (Yasmine) with beautiful bedding and even rose petals were laid out on our arrival. The only minor thing was that our room had a curtain instead of a door in the bathroom, but that was ok and the other rooms seemed to be the same in this regard.

A very enjoyable stay in a fantastic central location, would definitely stay here again.

A great find! Though just a few minutes walk from the Jamaa al Fna, Riad Dar Maia was peaceful and charming and provided a comfortable respite from the noise and bustle of the souks. This was our first trip to Morocco/Marrakech, and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful in providing guidance for our explorations of the Medina and surrounding areas. We loved our romantic room, and having breakfast in the courtyard. Don't miss the rooftop terrace (open to all guests), which has a great view of the city. We spent 3 days/nights there, and are very much looking forward to our next trip!

Enjoyed my stay at this comfortable and peaceful Riad. Location is perfect as it is in the center of the Media. The value is good, the hosts and staff were attentive and provided great information. I only wish i could of stayed there longer.

Spent 3 nights in this very comfortable Riad located at the heart of the Medina (5 mins walk to Jmaa el Fna and other things you want to see). Price/Quality ratio is excellent, and on top of that all the staff is very kind, multilingual (English, French, Spanish) and ready to accommodate your request or suggest places to go, things to do. Rooms clean and atmosphere peaceful as one wishes on a holiday.

If I pass by Marrakesh in the future, I am definitely going to book this Riad again.
