I have no hesitation in giving Dominique and his team a 5* review and thank all of them from the bottom of my heart for the wonderful and memorable experience at Riad Lyla. Right from the off Riad Lyla were a pleasure to deal with. I had a swift and pleasant communication and was soon booked in for 5 days stay with them. I stayed in 2 other places in Morocco and Riad Lyla was head and shoulders above the rest for their care, personal touch and attention to detail.
Dominique is happy to meet guests prior to arrival which if it's you first time to Marrakech is recommended so that you don't get lost in the maze of streets. We were greeted with mint tea and pastries and chatted to Dominique at length about life in Morocco, Marrakech and the riad itself.
Riad Lyla is full of charm and feels like a million miles from the main square despite being only 15mins on foot. Dominique has stamped his own personality on the Riad over the years in the form of eclectic furniture and roving plants and the gorgeous swimming pool (larger than the standard plunge pool in a riad) and roof terrace differentiate it from other riads, making it truly unique.
Dominique, Radouane and the rest of the staff speak a dizzying array of languages, are attentive but never interfering and cater to your every need. We were even offered an upgrade seeing as we went in low season and lunch at an awkward time ahead of departure was no trouble. Breakfasts receive special mention which were varied and filling!
If you're looking for a unique and definitely not run of the mill riad, Riad Lyla is a great bet, exquisite value for money, and just one more reason to return to Morocco. Thanks a million, mille grazie & mercy million!
