“An excellent oasis”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2013

We just spent four days in this wonderful Riad and cannot recommend it too highly. We thought we were on to a winner even before we arrived when our emails enquiring about this and that were answered almost immediately. Rare good service here!. The staff are welcoming, friendly and obliging and the facilities, excellent. The mark of an excellent establishment is, in my view, not that it gets everything right first time (after all hostelries are run by humans not robots), but its response when things are not quite right. I only had to mention something when it was put right... not that much was wrong, I hasten to add. We advise eating there the first night you arrive until you get your bearings. Staff are always happy to recommend good restaurants and the free map given to you will be annotated with helpful information by Abdess. Please stay here when you visit Marrakech. You will not regret it

The Riad El Mansour was a very nice hotel. My Mum, Sister and I stayed there for the whole weekend.Staff were very friendly, Great breakfast every morning, Good size room, huge bed, exercise room and a computer. The style was very Moroccan tradition. The room came with a TV, Bottled water and a safe. Bathroom was very fancy. If I ever go back to Marrakech I will definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Stay on the second floor

I have recently come back from a 5 days trip to Marrakech; the riad was wonderful, my room was of a very high standard, there always was fresh anjd dryed fruit, a bottle of mineral water, and very good products in the bathroom .The downstirs typical Moroccon patio where you could have breakfast [ cooked to your specification] or a drink after a busy day was terrific, a real delight. I must mention the cook, the best omelettes ever, and certainly all the front of the house. All in all an unforgettable experience, I would certainly want to go back. By the way, I used a local chap[ Hashim] for a trip to the ATLAS MOUNTAINS, an absolute charming guy, and he spoke excellent english, highly recomended.

In over 40 years of world travel, it would be difficult to have had better service than at the El Mansour. Wadi and the rest of the staff are people who take pride in their service and friendliness. Being that this was our first visit to Morocco but having had Moroccan food prepared in the USA, we dined nightly at the hotel for a home cooked meal experience. The menu is comprised of Tagine prepared food items and by selecting your choices in the morning, the items are purchased and prepared for the evening meal from fresh items found at the local markets. The rooms are well appointed and we stayed in the only ground floor room which allowed us to enjoy the pond and seating area with drinks and snacks prior to dinner. Getting to and from the Riad to the airport were arranged by the staff and can be added to the cost of the stay. Walking into the Medina is a cultural experience. If bazaar shopping is not your thing the newer section of Marrakech is either a short taxi ride or a nice walk. We had a nice addition to our stay as one of the owners was there and we spent time sharing our travel experiences with him in person, He was as congenial as the staff.

Booked this as a surprise for my husband birthday with 6 friends and we were not disappointed. The yoga used a great traditional meal as well as all our transport to save using taxis.
The raid is beautifully and well decorated and is about 15min walk when you know your way, roads are easy once explained and we enjoyed seeing the souks and locals.
Thanks to Abess and hugs staff for a great experience.

My family (7 adults and 3 children) stayed at the Riad El Mansour for 3 nights during late October to celebrate my parents 50th Anniversary. Wadi, and all his staff were professional and very accommodating and made our stay a thoroughly enjoyable one.

The rooms in the hotel were beautifully furnished and comfortable as well as being kept impeccably clean and tidy throughout our stay, so special mention here to the cleaning staff who worked tirelessly throughout the day.

Special mention as well to the cooks who served up delicious food during out stay.

Marrakech is a wonderful and fascinating city, but if you are short on time like we were, ask Wadi to organise a guide to show you around the city and also excursions to the mountains and to the coast.

It's been two years since my last trip, and it was, once again, FABULOUS!!! I can't tell you how beautiful the city is...with the hotel being the crown jewel. Surprisingly, the staff was still the same, and they welcomed me back like family, particularly Abdess and Wadi. Their desire to make sure i was happy, well-taken care of. Surprisingly, as we were returning guests, we received a lovely bottle of wine, upon our arrival. Given that we were exhausted when we first arrived, we had an amazing dinner served in our suite... (Amber). (btw... a GREAT DEAL... as we booked it online.) and well-worth the upgrade.

If you are into massages, get one here. I forgot her name, but she was very petite. I thought she would not be good, as a result... but she was terrific and very strong. It would have been nice, if we could have had them in our room, but the spa is quite lovely... so why not?

This time we did a few excursions. Essouireria, (a really charming city by the sea), and the waterfalls in the Ourika mtns... YES.... more hiking...Bring your boots... Hiking for all levels can be found here!!

Next time, i really want to do a desert trip. And yes, the hotel will arrange all excursions, if you would like...
