“Serene and tagine!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

Definitely worth the Tripadvisor traveller choice award 2012. This beautiful riad with it's calm and exceptionally tranquil atmosphere, was the perfect contrast to the madness inside the medina. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, aiding us to get to grips with our location in relation to main tourist attractions. The riad offers an inclusive breakfast on the rooftop terrace, providing us with enough fuel to keep us going through many a hard day of haggling in the souks! An evening meal would be made for you upon request each morning and again the standard was excellent. The rooms are gorgeous and typically morrocan adding the autheticity of our stay. The air con facilities were excellent and much needed in the searing heat of the day. There was however little privacy between the bed and the toilet, with only a thin lace curtain to block out the sounds of the effects of a morrocan diet! Taxi services were offered on our arrival and departure and were arranged at a fixed price to avoid the hassle of tipping or being overcharged.
This riad was an excellent find and we would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to visit Marrakech.

A great place to stay when visiting Marrakech. Very clean and friendly atmosphere and staff are welcoming and helpful. The rooms are beautiful, and fitted with air con to keep you cool. The inclusive breakfast under the morning sun on the roof terrace was a delight. A very relaxing escape from the hustle and bustle of the city streets. Riad Les Jardins Mandaline is great value for money for a quality experience. The riad is a little tucked away through winding streets making it a little difficult to find at first, although this is good because it makes it so quiet and peaceful. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Tahyra was the room we stayed in, this is the only room with a bath as opposed to just showers. The...

Arriving in Marrakech in the oppressive heat, bartering with the taxi driver and then lugging our rucksacks through the busy and narrow streets of Marrakech, my girlfriend and I were shocked by how serene our chosen riad was. Beautiful too, with its flowers, white walls and ideal sized pool. Our room was very nice indeed and the staff extremely friendly and accommodating.

The position of Les Jardins Mandaline within the Medina was ideal, being about a 10 minute walk from Jemaa el Fnaa - I personally think this was a perfect distance in order to get away from the hustle and bustle of the souks at the end of the day. If spending the evening in the sure to walk back before the final evening call to mosque (or around 10.30/11pm), as the dark walk through the (almost) deserted souks isn't the most pleasant.

Highly recommend this riad!

After being unsure about booking this riad, due to it´s location, we were extremely happy to have had the experience at staying at such a charming, friendy and calming riad. It is actually only a 10/15 min walk from the centre and although I was apprehensive about returning late at night, I need not have worried at all. The area feels safe and it is quite a relief to be able to escape the frenzy of the busier parts of Marrakesh. The breakfast was served on the beautiful terrace and was delicious. It was wonderful to have a dip in the pool in the beautiful surroundings of the riad. All the staff were friendly and made you feel very much at home, something we did not experience in the second riad in which we stayed.We also enjoyed having a beer on the terrace whilst laying back and enjoying the sunshine on the sun loungers. Again, the second riad we stayed in did not serve alcohol at all. We would definitely go back and will recommend this riad to all our friends. I think it would be difficult to find better quality for the price.

We found this Riad on Trip advisor and were not disappointed. When you get dropped off by the taxi and then follow the man who takes your cases in a wheelbarrow down the little narrow streets, you do start to wonder what you are going to, but once inside the wooden doors you enter a little haven of peace and tranquility exactly as described on the website. We had exceedingly hot weather during our stay and loved to return each day and have a cool dip in the small pool and relax. The air con is a little noisy but at least there is no traffic noise. The meal we had in the Riad was by far the best we had eaten during our stay in Marrakech, sumptuous lamb and apricots.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Iman. It's small but cosy and perfect proximity to the little splash pool.

Perfectly situated riad in the Medina, walking through the souks from here was great, so close. There are a few boutique places popping up in the souk at this end now too which is nice for a change.. We found that the air con was a little noisy at night but if we left the unit on before going to sleep, it was still cool enough to sleep. Perfect sleep.
We had dinner there for the first night which was the best meal we had all weekend. The guys that run the riad where amazing, I can not fault them. So accommodating, there was nothing we asked that wasnt a problem. Popcorn and shish on the terrace when the sun sets became a ritual. Very relaxing weekend break in busy Marrakech.

Room Tip: We looked at all rooms, they are nicely decorated. The rooms that are £80 per night do however have...

A comfortable Riad only 20 minutes walk from D'jema el fna through the medina. Tucked away at the end of a poorly lit side alley, Derb Ferrane, but wouldn't let this put you off. Pleasant clean rooms, well equipped bathroom and elegant decoration throughout. Helpful and friendly staff. The roof terrace is a lovely place to relax with drink after long day spent touring the town. Recommended.
