4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2010

great place for a break , just outside the city, about 15 mins. by car from the riad, and with the swimming pool available it's a haven from the Medina, excellent staff and service and the food was out of this world, big thanks to Asjin,Ibrahim and Mohamed, truly a wonderful place... thank you for a great time

3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2010

When we first arrived at the Riad, I have to admit I was nothing short of gutted. Whilst it was pretty, albeit a bit shabby, it looked nothing like the glamorous pictures on the websites! We were starving, having been travelling all day and were looking forward to a meal, however there was no restuarant or dining area...and we were in the middle of nowhere! However the staff were so lovely, they brought out some food for us but the lack of menu or services in this regard was disappointing. We were a little disorientated and due to us being the only ones in the riad a little lost...and with very little information.

However the next day, in the sunshine, things were a lot better. The staff waited on us hand and foot, and plyed us with drinks and snacks by the pool. The hospitality was impeccable. The riad itself felt a little 'unloved' as none of the berber tents, outdoor beds were there as are in the photos. There were also none of the candles and decorative pieces and it generally could do with a lick of paint and certainly new sunbeds etc! We wondered if it's let itself go recently as it felt like shabby chic, which is fine, but not really at the price we were paying.

All in all, just be aware you are a good 20 minute taxi ride from town, you cant order anything there but they will treat you like royalty and is great escapism! Just make sure you're not paying an obscene amount as this riad needs some love!

I booked the riad on a whim, we wanted a chilled trip away from the madness f the medina.
What a fantastic place, excellent staff, achmed the owner was a real treat, excellent knowledge of where to go. He made the holiday one of the best I have ever had. A big thankyou to the team. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a relaxed stay in an amazing environment,

We spent a fantastic weekend in Marrakech staying at the Riad Tammou. The riad is very modern in decor and has a boutique feel to it while keeping some traditional elements. The were 10 of us and we had the riad to ourselves for the whole weekend. The staff where excellent, very helpful and the breakfast, although basic was very good each day. Although slightly out of the way I would highly recommend staying at the Riad Tammou if visiting Marrakech.

Great place to stay, excellent host, and staff were eqaully attentative. Superb night life, great restaurants, and bars in the town centre. The Riad is perfectly positioned away from the city, and has superb outlook over the atlas, a relaxing pool, and spacious, luxurious rooms. Great value and great fun weekend.

You will be surprised by the warm welcome of the hosts. The place is so nice and has lots of different scents. We arrived at night and we had a very good dinner. The breakfast was also royal! So many good things to eat.
The rooms are decorated with lots of good taste. The bed is big and comfortable. The concept of the Riad will bring you lots of surprises; when we got back at night on Valentines Day, we were amazingly surprised to find our bed decorated with flowers, it was so nice and sweet of them. We also (ladies) got gifts on the day we left.
The view of the atlas from the swimming pool was gorgeous and the sky at night is incredibly full of stars. It is a very nice and romantic place.
Anyways, Riad Tammou is THE place to be, we loved it and it will definitely go back as soon as we can!
