This is a very nice, clean en cosy riad. I went here with my sister and we had a great time! Room, food, people and service: fabulous! When i go back to Marrakesh i would choose Riad el Mansour again to stay over!

My partner took me here for my 40th birthday, it was a surprise present and what a present it was!
We were picked up at the airport by the hotel`s own driver ( Mustapha) and whisked to the hotel.
Our room was the `Amber Suite`on the first floor. The furniture in the room was amazing..a huge hand-carved bed and chandeliers. The complimentary items were lovely, along with the toiletries in the shower..gels, body oil, shampoo, conditioner, argan oil and black soap, slippers and bathrobe. We had maid service in our room twice a day. Breakfast was when we wanted it ..the first day we didn`t get up til midday, but it was no trouble at all to have our `late breakfast` on the sun terrace
Our hosts Abdess and Mustapha were very attentive to our needs and were very informative and knowledgeable about their city
We had dinner twice at the hotel..amazing food and huge portions, at a great price ..really good value compared to the `top` restaurants in Marrakech

We spent four days in Marrakech , staying in the Verbena room. If you want genuine Moroccan accommodation with the benefit of good bathroom facilities and air conditioning, this is the place. As for the hospitality, Abdass and his team were first rate without exception. They couldn't do enough for us and the guys on reception spoke very good English. The Riad is tastefully decorated and had a very authentic feel about it. Complementary water, nuts and fresh fruit were put in our room daily. Despite the hustle and bustle of Marrakech, the Riad was calm and relaxing. Do not be put off by the approach to the Riad, it is very well worth the journey.

Room Tip: All rooms we saw are very tasteful, some are just a little larger than others

We were met at the airport and taken to the Riad where fruits, tea and a warm welcome awaited. We stayed in the Amber room which has a large comfy bed, large sitting area, a safe and a big shower. The room was cleaned twice a day. Breakfast on the terrace was delightful. Wadi and Abdess booked our taxis and evening meals and their choices did not disappoint. We spent a day at the Jardin Majorelle which is only a short walk away. The Riad is about a 20 minute walk from the main square so the streets around the Riad did not feel touristy. We felt like we experienced the real Marrakech.

I spent 5 memorable days at this Riad. After a hot and busy sightseeing day, Riad Mansour is a tranquil, tastefully decorated, oasis of calm. Without exception, all of the staff are polite and friendly, willing to respond to your individual needs and requests.They are led by Abdess and Wadi but all work together as one team to create a very memorable experience. The service levels are that of a 5 star hotel, but much more personable. The breakfasts were sumptuous, a great vaiety of options from continental style to hot omlettes and is served in your chosen location in the Riad. We ate dinner twice in the Riad and the food was traditional Morrocan style, beautifully presented and very tasty. The local wines were good quality too!
I stayed in the Jasmine Suite which was decorated and adorned with Moroccan artifacts. A very powerful shower with constant hot water and very comfortable bed and quiet A/C. The rooms are regularly serviced throughout the day with complimentary drinking water, nuts and fruits.
Lots of nice touches, i.e the turn down service at night.
All of the tour buses and guides suggested by the Riad were very interesting and informative, great value for money and the style of the guide matched the style of the Riad...nothing was too much trouble and the day was controlled by yourself.
The Riad is a level, 15 minute walk, to the Souk and main Square area but this is welcomed after such hearty food portions. Great to see the local culture too.
On reflection, I can highly recommend Riad Mansour for a city break with outstanding personal service and high levels of Moroccan charm and beauty. The owners should be truly proud of their Riad and their amazing staff.

Room Tip: This Riad is very tranquil and I looked at all the rooms. They are all slightly different and some l...

This Riad is a bit off the beaten path but that provides for very quiet evenings. It is very small but lovely and the staff are truly exceptional. The breakfasts were the best (that's what my kids said) and the staff went out of there way for us...including going to the pharmacy to buy the medication I had forgotten. We had the Saphire suite which is good for families, but was small for ours and it is dark!! That was the ONLY issue…. It was clean and had every amenity!! 3 fits best in the room, but they added an extra bed for our son. We had a lot of luggage so felt a bit cramped, but again we were very comfortable and enjoyed the peace and quiet this Riad provided. This might be best for couples…or perhaps get 2 rooms if you have older children like ours. We are AMerican and have been expats for 14 years so our expecations are a bit high as we have done so much traveling. However, I would recommend this without hesitation!!

I have just returned from Riad El Mansour, having just spent 4 wonderful days there to celebrate
my 60th birthday with 8 friends, and we booked all 6 rooms.
All the previous review of El Mansour are so accurate, which is why I came to book this special place.
Wadi and Abdess lead their team with professionalism, to deliver very high levels of customer service.
Everyone is so polite,courteous and helpful, and nothing is too much trouble for any of the team.
All you need to do is ask, and every request is fulfilled.
I have travelled the world extensively for the past 42 years, and I would go as far as to say that the service in Riad El Mansour actually surpasses most high class hotels.
Everything from breakfast to dinner was delivered in very personalised style.
We ate dinner twice in the Riad, and the food was sumptuous, plentiful and beautifully presented-Moroccan cuisine at its best, and all freshly prepared by Latifa the in house cook.
All personal requests were actioned immediately, and all the staff without exception, constantly checked that they were meeting your individual needs and expectations.
All tourist/tour info was given honestly with lots of recommendations and maps, and all guides and drivers met the same high standard as delivered in the riad.
We did a tour to The Ourika valley and also visited a Berber house which was extremely interesting.
Our driver Hicham was very informative, and made the day very enjoyable with his fun humour.
The riad will book any tour for you, and Wadi or Abdess will also recommend and book any restaurant for you.
Marrakech is a superb place to visit, and it is mayhem in the medina and souks, and you have to be careful to dodge the numerous bikes/motorcycles in the narrow alleys, but as soon as you return to Riad El Mansour, it is an oasis of calm and very tranquil.
All rooms are decorated in classical Moroccan style, and all areas are well fitted and accessorised with lots of extras, i.e fresh fruit, nuts, pastries, flowers, drinking water and toiletries.
The rooms are spotlessly clean and regularly serviced.
We drank the local wines which are available from the riad, and they were very palatable.
All in all, this was an extremely memorable birthday and vacation which I can highly recommend.
Riad El Mansour is definitely high on my list for a return visit.
Thanks again-Wadi, Abdess, Mustapha, Latifa, Nadia, Sana, and Mourad-you are the best.
