“Fantastic oasis in a wondefully busy city - well worth a visit!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

We all had a brilliant time staying here with out two teenage boys - the staff are all amazing, the food was fantastic with different breakfasts cooked every day and served on the beautiful roof terrace. Every detail has been thought of here - the rooms are all immaculate and all different, with luxurious en-suite bathrooms. The location is great as its a perfect short walk to the main hub-bub of marrakech and also an easy walk to the new town part too so the best of both worlds and great to be able to come back to this little oasis for a relaxing cup of tea and a chill out on the roof terrace! The staff are so helpful with nothing being too much trouble. Highly recommend a visit!

Everything was simply perfect right from the start. Michael and Michel made sure that we felt welcome as soon as we arrived and took care of every little detail during our stay. The place itself is gorgeous, smells wonderful and the rooms and the fittings are wonderful. The rooms are beautiful and very comfortable. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone going to Marrakech. I look forward to going back myself!

My mother-in-law had always wanted to go to Marrakech, so for her 70th birthday we trawled the net trying to find somewhere suitable to stay. Out of all of the myriad of possibilities on the net, something stood out about this one, and the glowing reviews by past customers sealed the deal. Happily my parents decided to join us, travelling over from Australia, so there were 6 of us in total, taking up half of the Riad. From the moment we arrived the service was second to none, we were treated like Kings and Queens by the attentive staff. The decor and gardens of the Riad are exceptionally beautiful, and this place is an oasis of calm and tranquility in the midst of the bustle of the medina. I think the location is fabulous. The Bab Doukkala market is really interesting - I was really entranced by the completely different way of life here, and it is not touristy like other parts of the medina. It is very easy walking distance from the main square, and many other places too. Make sure you allow yourself to get lost, but don't follow anyone who offers to show you the way!

The two highlights of this property are the incredibly gracious hosts Michael, Michel ably assisted by the equally charming David, and the exquisite cooking of Chef Abdulwahed. The hosts are so knowledgeable and passionate about Marrakech, and have such wonderful taste you can be sure that their recommendations will be excellent, and they always were. They spent a lot of time chatting to us and giving us advice, treating us as if we were very welcome guests in their own exquisite home. If you stay here I urge you to have dinner at least twice, and request the chicken with pears and blue cheese. The food was exquisite, including the gorgeous breakfasts.

I dream about coming back to this Riad, it is the perfect relaxing break. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: The rooms are all lovely, but the Jade room adjoins the roof terrace which is gorgeous.

Marrakech took a bit of getting used to - the first day we got lost and were much bothered by young men telling us roads were closed and offering to show the way - but our hosts gave us some very helpful advice and we had two really wonderful days. Michael, Michel and their staff at Riad Al Massarah were fabulous. Our room and the whole building were delightfully decorated - great taste all round with beautiful furniture, artefacts, plants, etc. Our evening meal there was the best we've ever eaten at a restaurant anywhere. We very strongly recommend this riad.

Room Tip: We got a 'superior' room, the Carmin, as the cheaper room we wanted wasn't available, fo...

At first I thought the location was dicey, but then I saw this beautiful riad. The service was exceptional and the staff unusually attentive [and well-cared-for by the socially conscious owners].
What a courtyard, what lovely breakfasts, what views from the terrace, plus a lovely restaurant next door. You'll love it.

I am sorry for my late review, based in how good experience we had I should have write it the day after we left:).
We came here a family group of 8 people, and everything was perfect they keep the place super clean, decor is really nice, is an oasis from the outside world!, everyone was super nice, and helpful.
Please if you are thinking about coming to Marrakech please don't look any further this IS the place, the photos don't even do justice, imagine that...is even more pretty in real life.
Thanks guys for an awesome time!!

This is a beautifully appointed property in the heart of the old town. Each room is a unique masterpiece blending the exotic essence of Marrakesh with European style. The rooms are spotless and comfortable. The owners and hosts are gracious and extremely helpful ensuring we made the most of our trip. They prearranged tours and were very responsive to our inquiries. Everything promised was delivered 100%! We also loved the fact that they have dedicated sustainability policies! This is a must stay venue for anyone visiting!
