“The perfect Riad”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2012

We experienced hospitality of the highest order during our stay at Riad Davia. Nothing was too much trouble and Achraf and the rest of the staff delivered everything we required with a very friendly and personal touch.

Within the city walls we found it to be a crazy, mad, dusty explosion of smells, sights and experiences, Riad Davia was an amazing sanctuary of calm that we loved.

I couldn’t find anything negative to say about Riad Davia and if I find myself in Marrakech again I will be staying at Riad Davia without a doubt.

We spent 6 nights at Riad Davia. It was situated in an area just a 15 minute walk to the main square ( Jemaa el Fna). Our host, Achraf made us feel very comfortable from the minute we arrived. He was always helpful with suggestions for outings (both out of town and in Marrakech) or restaurants and even a cooking class. We enjoyed the quiet of the riad and the comfort of our rooms. The roof top terrace was lovely for breakfasts. We will definitely tell our friends if they want to be part of the every day life of a medina neighborhood with the peace and quiet of a getaway- this is the place !

Room Tip: Our room the Bahia had a nice little private terrace.

Thanks to the simple plan provided by our friendly host Achraf we could find our way every time we went one safari in marakesh.
Actually you can make your own trips in this town and find your way to Musea and other highlights in this magical town.
To return to Davia is like returning home with tasteful exclusive decorated rooms with a prospect of relaxing in the RIAD under the tree with singing birds. Breakfas is served in the garden by three lovely ladies. It is situated in a non tourist area which makes it all the better with genuin street life just around the corner, and in walking distance to the famous Place Jemaa el Fna.
Highly recommended by two seasoned travellers. A MUST.

Room Tip: Higher floors room with a balcony

We've just returned from an great visit to Marrakech. Its a truely wonderful city, made all the better thanks to the warmth and hospitality we received from Achraf and co at Riad Davia. We were a little aprehensive about taking our 2.5yr old to Marrakech, but we needn't have worried. We were more than comfortable at this beautiful and relaxing Riad, which is a short walk from the main sites, We enjoyed home cooked lovely local food and everyone doted on our littled one. Achraf (who speaks great English) helped us to navigate the city (both with and without buggy!) and find child friendly restaurants, pools etc. All in all a fantastic holiday, thank you!

Me, my wife and our baby spent a week in Riad Davia. It is really a nice place to relax away from all the crowds... but close enough to get to Djema El Fna in just 15min. All the staff is very helpful and the meals are great! Guests should definitely try their meals!
Thank you very much for such a nice time!

We had a wonderful stay at Riad Davia!

We were there for 3 night and Achraf and his team could not have made our stay more enjoyable!!

The riad is absolutely gorgeous with a perfect mix of traditional Moroccan style and all the modern day comforts you need. Its a nice and peaceful place to come back and relax with some mint tea after a day rummaging through the souks!

Achraf was very helpful, suggesting interesting places for us to go and helping us navigate our way through the many narrow streets in the medina. He was very hospitable and nothing seemed to put him out.

We also had a great Hamman in the riad, I only wish we had had more time to have more treatments!

All in all I couldn’t have wanted anything more from our stay in Marrakech – the price is very reasonable the riad was gorgeous and the staff very helpful. Thank you!

I can’t wait to go back again.

We’ve just returned from Marrakech having spent a truly wonderful week at Riad Davia. The staff are fantastic; Achraf, Ahmed and the team - all very generous with their time and advice, both in advance of our trip and during our stay, keen to help in any way they could, helping to arrange trips and recommend restaurants, always going the extra step to ensure our visit was hassle free and one to remember.

The accommodation itself offers fantastic value for money, beautiful, tranquil communal areas, and our room was wonderful too, simple but elegant. My advice would be to arrange a transfer from the airport, the Riad is tucked away so you’ll need some guidance for your first visit. Do arrange to have dinner at the Riad one night; the cooking was some of the best we enjoyed whilst in Marrakech, simple traditional good food. Also try the Rose wine – very good indeed.

I’d not hesitate to recommend Riad Davia, we enjoyed our stay in this beautiful home that was made truly special by the exceptional service we received throughout our stay. We’ll definitely be returning!
