My friend and I stayed at this Riad for just under a week at the end of March and beginning of April this year and we really enjoyed our stay!
We got an airport transfer arranged by the riad which we found quite handy as the last thing you want to do after a flight is haggle with taxi drivers!
We were welcomed with mint tea on the terrace by the lovely Zora who spoke perfect English and informed us she was from Algeria she proved to be very welcoming and helpful throughout our stay. Afterwards she provided us with a map of Marrakech which was very clear and detailed and we ended up using it throughout our stay!
She also asked us what our plans were for our time in Marrakech and she took bookings for all the excursions we wanted to do there and then for example camel riding,day trip to eassouria and the oukria mountains etc.
It was very helpful for us to get that done at the raid and it saved us going to tourist offices etc. and we were happy to be picked up and dropped off at our raid. Also all the drivers were very nice!
The calmness of the riad is something we really appreciated it was like a haven of peace to return there after the hustle and bustle of the souks and the main square!
We had dinner there on one of the nights when we had returned from a day trip to essaouria and we too tired to go out to dinner (even though we did decide to venture out later and check out the night life lol) and we loved the food it was very simple (four different kind of salads) but very fresh and delicious.
Also we can't forget to mention Aziz who was very sweet and accommodating to us sometimes having to open the riad door to us way past his bedtime but he always welcomed us with a smile and also he twice arranged breakfast for us a lot earlier than it was to be served to accommodate us leaving the riad early (once for a day trip once for an early flight)
All in all we loved our experience at Riad Fabiola and will definitely return it was amazing value for money and a comfortable 10 minute walk from the main square also at night time a taxi back is only the equivalent of 5 euro.
Our favourite thing about this riad was that it feels very authentic and homely (we felt like we had a very real experience in comparison to staying at a hotel) and is located right next to a mosque so we were happily awoken by the enchanting sound of the call to prayer every morning and in the evening time we could hear it from the lovely rooftop terrace with a refreshing mint tea.
We stayed in the safran double room and we found our room had a lot of character,we had a great experience and will definitely be back.
