“A heavenly stay in Marrakech”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014

Riad Hayati exceeded my already high expectations in every way. We stayed with friends for 6 days and it was one of the most relaxing vacations I have ever had. The Riad itself is in a great location-an easy 10 minute walk to the hustle and bustle of the main square but on a quiet (and easy to find!!) street. The food was absolutely incredible-many days, we preferred to stay in and eat at the Riad because it was more delicious (and of better value) than anything in the Medina. Perhaps the most part was the amazing staff-Abdel was warm, kind, and so helpful. He helped us with everything from arranging taxis to recommending restaurants, to serving us lovely breakfasts on the roof. They even did my laundry (without being asked) when I left a pile on the bottom of the closet.

Overall, a highly recommended Riad for anyone looking to relax and enjoy all that Marrakech has to offer!

I didn’t know what to expect as this was my first time coming to Marrakech; I was a little worried about not staying at a European hotel at first, however Riad Hayati made sure our trip was perfect. Abdel and Mina took amazing care of us. Mina’s cooking was out of this world. We ate tagine and couscous at a number of places but hands down Mina’s was the best. And Abdel assisted us with everything from booking cars, organizing trips, spa reservations, dinner plans, you name it, Abdel could do it. We were treated like friends and nothing was too much trouble. Every morning we would eat our breakfast on the rooftop; delicious and beautiful. The rooms were absolutely beautiful. I can’t wait to return. Riad Hayati was incredible!

Riad Hayati is simply beautiful, a calm oasis in the heart of Marrakech. Waking up to the dawn chorus of birds was just magical. Abdel and Mina are a pleasure to be around and the place is spotless. Mina's cooking, especially her chicken tagine with lemons and olives was out of this world. We were treated like friends and nothing was too much trouble. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this lovely Riad or to return ourselves one day, hopefully sooner rather than later!!

Absolutely top notch! This small and luxurious riad is perfect in every way--wonderful location, excellent food and attentive service. While there's no hammam at the riad, there's one a minute's walk away. Stop combing through websites and reviews--pick this one!

Perfection with a capital P. Take all the previous positive reviews and times them by a hundred. The team of Ron, Abdel and Mina have got this absolutely spot on. If you want to feel spoilt and special visit here. Having your perfect hotel experience whilst in Marrakech is at the forefront of their priorities and it works. Don't waste your time trawling through other Riad reviews. I did, and just kept coming back to this one, and with all good reason. We had the suite with private terrace and plunge pool and it is really worth the very small price difference. Get it booked it's awesome!

Room Tip: We had the suite with plunge pool and private terrace - well worth the very small increase

If you are looking for the perfect place to stay in Marrakech look no further! We were greeted at the airport by Abdel who is just the most friendly and helpful person you could ever wish to meet (airport transfers are incliuded in the price!) The Riad Hayati is a real 'WOW' place. The interior is beautifully designed, luxurious and authentic. It is so quiet and peaceful, you cannot believe you are only a few yards from the hustle and bustle of the busy streets. The location is perfect, halfway between the main square and the Bahia and Baddi Palaces. We had the suite on the top floor with a gorgeous bedroom, private roof terrace and plunge pool. There is another lovely terrace covered with beautiful flowers with decking and sun beds which looks over the rooftops of Marrakech. Abdel and Meena were the perfect hosts, nothing was too much trouble. Each morning, Abdel would deliver our delicious breakfast to our private roof terrace, home made Moroccan pancakes, eggs, fresh fruit, pastries, great coffee and freshly squeezed orange juice. Meena also cooked an amazing tagine on our first night accompanied by some excellent Moroccan wine. Ron, the owner was away but rang to speak to us on 2 nights to make sure we were happy and had everything we needed, this was such a lovely touch. I have been recommending this riad to everyone I know since we got home, it is absolutely perfect! Thank you Ron, Abdel and Meena for making this such a special place.

Room Tip: The top floor suite has a private terrace and plunge pool but we saw all the rooms and they are all...

It is impossible to fault this property. A truly class act. Sincere and attentive hospitality from housekeeper Abdel Hak and supreme cooking from sister Mina. And a great location between main square and Mellah. Worthy of 6 stars for service if available. Not for you if you want a TV and Gym though there is A/C.
