“Stunning Riad, Amazing Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2009

This is a truly a special property. It has the charm and intimacy of a private residence with the comfort and service of a top end boutique hotel. The decor is stunning in an understated manner. The place is so cool and immaculate in the midst of the hot dusty medina.

We cannot rave enough about the food, We are fussy travelers,but the folks at Hayati get it right with their attention to detail and personal service.

Value for money, this place is a real find.

My family treated me to my 40th in Marrakech. They cetrtainly put a great deal of planning into the four day celebration. I must thank the people at Riad Hayati for making it all happen.

Very grateful for the smooth airport greeting which made our arrival so pleasant. Then at the riad we were offered cold towels, iced drinks in a cool, dream-like courtyard with soft arabic music and heady incense.

My birthday breakfast was an event in itself. I awoke to a room filled with flowers and we all feasted on berber crepes and the best omlettes i have ever tasted. Throughout the four days Abdel was at the ready with complimentary refreshments and in the evening a special candlelit dinner with Mina's killer choclate birthday cake..

This is a wonderful place that we won't soon forget and I want to thank Ron, Mina and Abdel for making us feel so welcome and special

My friends and I rent a house somewhere beautiful and exciting every year. This year was Marrakech and our choice was Riad Hayati at the suggestion of our parents who had stayed there last year. What a wonderful surprise. It was even more delightful than
their description and I must say the website is so understated it does not do it justice.

The six of us had it all to ourselves for two glorious weeks. We were able to to make day trips to the Atlas and Essaouira then return to the comfort of our home in Marrakech.

The staff are all family retainers who know how to receive guests in warm style. They seemed to anticipate our needs before we asked for anything.. We were always changing our plans at the last minute but Abdel never flinched and delivered drivers,guides,masseurs and reservations in record time. Mina,of course, is mistress of her kitchen. She makes it look so easy but she is a seasoned chef in the best French and Moroccan tradition.

Our stay at the Hayati was pure bliss. A real treat and the perfect break.

This place is heavenly. It's a tranquil,elegant sanctuary in the midst of the mad,mad Marrakech medina.

Some days were just too hot to brave the bazaars and sights. We were happy to spend an entire day in the cool freshness of the stunning courtyard or on the riad's lush terrace and plunge pool.

Abdel is the perfect young major domo who constantly plied us with iced refreshments. Mina is somewhat of a star in town. Her cooking is superb--freshest local produce beautifully presented.

We were struck by the great attention to detail and comfort here. Our stay was indeed memorable . We simply loved it.

We were delayed on our long haul from from L.A. and arrived in Marrakech at two in the morning totally exhausted. Abdel had been waiting three hours for us and greeted us with his special smile . Within minutes we arrived at Hayati where refreshments were waiting . Our rooms were superbly comfortable we all fell into deep and peaceful sleep. The riad is so quiet and tranquil and the staff so caring that we felt at home almost immediately.

Breakfasts are served where you want it, at any hour ( in our case,noon), and virtually whatever you want is on offer--even "le cornflakes." Mina's home cooking easily beat some of the restaurants we tried.

Abdel and Mina get it just right. The service is warm and personal but always discreet.
We adored them both

Hayati is very beautiful in its elegant simplicity. Ron asked us for our evaluations and suggestions,but we were hard pressed to say that our stay was anything but "absolutely perfect."

My wife and I both gasped a little as we entered the stunning courtyard at Riad Hayati. It is like walking into a dream. Marble fountains, lush jasmine,palms and citrus trees are everywhere. Amongst the trees, a pair of canaries happily singing away. Paradise.

Our room was superbly comfortable with a bathtub big enough for two ! Vases of roses everywhere, wonderful bath amenities, fluffy robes,slippers. Extraordinary attention to detail.

About the service. Mina and Abdel get it just right. They are warm and friendly and so efficient, but are totally discreet at all times.

Without repeating the obvious, this place is about as perfect as we could have hoped for.
Very highly reccomended.

I just wanted to add our thanks to the many I see here on Trip Advisor. Nina and I had the most brilliant,memorable honeymoon we could have hoped for. I had outlined a few questions to Ron about privacy, romantic restaurants, scenic day trips and cultural sights of Marrakech. Ron was clear and accurate about all his suggestions. We were presented with a menu of delights that we experienced throughout our ten day stay.

The riad is a little bit of paradise. Simply stunning in its simplicity and with great attention
to personal service and comfort. Abdel and Mina waft about providing little surprises throughout the day and evening. Nothing was ever too much trouble. Wonderful romantic breakfasts on our private terrace and even more romantic candlelit dinners in the evening.

We really can't praise this place enough except to say thank you for making our honeymoon so memorable.
