“A glorious experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

We stayed at Riad Tzarra for our first trip to Marrakech and simply loved it. An elegant beautiful, tranquil hideaway and a great contrast to the bustling scene outside.
Stuart Redcliffe is a knowledgeable and amusing host and nothing was too much trouble for Mandy, the Manager, and all the staff. They even accompanied me shopping, steering me to the nicest traders and ensuring I saw the very best that the artisans had to offer.
Luxurious hamman treatments and sipping wine enjoying glorious views over the roof tops at sunset - we thoroughly recommend this place.
We also visited friends staying at Riads Dar Hanane and Adore (part of Pure Riads) and the excellent standard and attention to detail was evident throughout. They are architecturally stunning too.
We would definately return to any one of the Pure Riads in Marrakech.

We were welcomed into this beautiful riad by the warm and friendly staff. They looked after our every need, the food was great and the location perfect. The manager met us every day to help plan our schedule and to make sure we enjoyed our stay. This riad is a hidden gem!

This riad is small yet perfectly formed and in a great location! Our party had exclusive use of the 4 bedrooms. It was spotlessly clean and the service excellent. Nothing was a bother for the staff - meals, massage - even escorted home from the main square one evening.

If you fancy a trip to Marrakech, head for the lovely Riad Tzarra as I did - one of the Pure Riads boutique hotels in the Medina. I stayed here in March and had a truly wonderful experience. This pretty riad is very well placed in the medina (the old town) making it very easy to access the souk, the square and all the other attractions in Marrakech. While I was at the riad, I indulged in a hamman massage which is an experience not to be missed! Afterwards, my skin was peachy-soft, and I felt as though the stresses of daily living had disappeared. The staff are wonderful, incredibly friendly, and look after you so well; they are there for you day and night to ensure your holiday is perfect and stress-free. The riad is beautiful and my room was both comfortable and luxurious. I had a quick peek at some of the other rooms, which were equally lovely. If you need ideas, help or directions etc., the manager is only too willing to equip you with maps, give you ideas and explain all you need to know. If you want to eat in, the cook will prepare the most amazing meal for you - be prepared to feast on the most wonderful Moroccan food imaginable. If you fancy eating out, there are many excellent restaurants nearby, some of which I visited, which the manager can recommend and book for you. After a day exploring this extraordinary, beautiful and inspiring city, returning to lovely, tranquil Riad Tzarra is a joy! Highly recommended. I look forward to returning next year!

Room Tip: All the rooms looked very stylish and comfortable.

Just spent 3 days at this wonderful riad as part of a large group from London and loved every minute. The riad is beautiful and very tastefully decorated, the staff superb and so caring. We also had some of our meals at Riad Adore and that, too, was sublime. Thank you for such a lovely stay in Marrakech - we'll be back.

We have just returned from a three night break ( May 9 -12) at the Tzarra as part of a group of 40 people who were spread amongst the other Riads owned by the same company. Our experience mirrored everybody else's in the group. The Tzarra is a lovely, quiet, clean and very well run Riad in a convenient location for exploring the Souks and the main square. The staff are incredibly helpful and obliging and, as other Trip Adviser comments have said, the hamman and massage ( only 40 euros per person) is a superb experience. We ate mainly at the Riad Adore which is also beautiful with great food and staff. When using the plunge pool in the courtyard of the Tzarra it felt like being part of a Russell Flint picture ! Really highly recommended.

Room Tip: We had the Africa room which was fun as the bathroon was downstairs - like going into a subterranean...

Stayed at Riad Adore (owned by same English people) but came to Riad Tzarra for the "hammam and massage" experience - we booked early so got a hefty discount and we were not disappointed ! The whole experience was divine and left us both floating on a cloud somewhere over the medina ! Beautiful riad and lovely staff - highly recommended !
