We spent the most magical week at this amazing Dar Lalla F'dila Riad and we will definitely be back! The place is so tranquil and divine and it really is one of Medina’s hidden treasures. It is the most exquisite Riad, hosting an aura of such serenity and peace throughout the whole building. As soon as we arrived we were made to feel like house guests and were greeted by the warm and friendly host. On the first night we had an beautiful home cooked dinner, prepared from scratch by the superb chef, who I still say prepared me the best meal I ate for the whole week we were in Marrakesh. As the week progressed I fell more in love with the Riad not only because of its most beautiful décor and incredible cleanliness but because of the hospitality of the staff. Havid one of the site managers went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed as well as help to make my partners birthday that extra bit special. I have never ever met anyone as hardworking, professional and amazing as him while traveling on a holiday, he honestly made our stay at the Riad extremely special by going above and beyond for us as guests. He never stopped being busy but always smiling and making all the other guests feel just as special on their stay too. While staying at the Riad we had a fantastic Hammam and the best massage I have ever had, the masseuse was very friendly, professional and did everything to a high standard. I would definitely recommend having a treatment within the Riad. One of my favorite things about the Riad is the beautiful soft music that would be played in the day. The music would fill the Riad with such an elegant and relaxing thought inspiring energy, as well as the times in the day when you can actually hear in sync all the prayers happening around Medina flow through the riad, it absolutely beautiful and really did add to the magic of our stay.

A home away from home. In a small road, not far away from the crowd, but far enough to have undoubtable peace, lies this beautiu Dar/Riad. Hafed & Abdou, and then rest of the crew made our stay more special. From the cute breakfast in the morning to a dinner prepared for us in the Riad, everything was perfect. Happy guest are written here with big letters! To the main place its 10min walking. You walk through different souks - so its never boring. To the parking its 5min walking. Our warmest recommendations for this accommodation and its biggest asset - the people.

Myself and 2 lifelong friends decided to celebrate 50 years of friendship by leaving our other halves behind for a week to visit Marrakesch. We found a beautiful looking riad through a company called SECRET ESCAPES and made the booking. Sadly, UPON ARRIVAL we were informed that there were no rooms available at Lala F'dila and we were bunged in a so called "annexe" in a very grotty part of the Medina 20 minutes away from the place we had booked and paid for. We were not the only ones caught in this predicament. During the week we met 2 other couples each of which had also booked Lala F'dila with SECRET ESCAPES and been billeted in inferior accommodation. We did manage to visit Lala F'dila for dinner. It was magnificent and so was the food, service, amenities, location and view. There was simply no comparison with the alternative we had been obliged to accept. After dinner we trekked back to the "annexe" and considered what we should do about the way we (and others) had been let down. NEARLY 2 MONTHS LATER we're Still trying to sort this out with SECRET ESCAPES who are claiming that our dispute is not with them and we need to contact their supplier in Morrocco who are not responding at all. Are we missing something else here? If you buy something and you don't get what you paid for, you go back to where you bought it from - and not to their suppliers,..... don't you? So beware of SECRET ESCAPES if there is a problem with your booking they will blame it on their suppliers and leave you high and dry. To ensure accuracy SECRET ESCAPES did eventually offer 200 Euros between 3 of us as a goodwill gesture. An offer which falls well short of making up for this extremely shoddy service. The quest for satisfaction continues.

On arrival in Marrakesh after an over-priced taxi, being ripped off by someone trying to show us the right way to our Riad only to find it was the wrong Riad. We arrived at the Riad we had booked online only to be told there had been a problem with our booking and there was no room at this Riad. The good news was there was another Riad nearby where we could stay. We were met by Abdu who helped carry our luggage and were taken to Riad Dar Lalla F'dila, where we were met by the owner Veronique, who showed us around her beautiful Riad that she had renovated. I felt we had ended up with a better deal! We had a beautiful room with 7m high ceiliings, i was in heaven. We were shown around the Riad and the lovely roof terrace with a great view of Marrakesh and the Atlas mountains in the distance. Veronique and Abdu could not of been more hospitable and friendly. We were only on of three couples staying there so it was quiet and relaxing and a respite from the madness of the Souk and Medina. I would wholly recommend staying here.

My wife and I stayed for a week during April and loved it. Hafid was very helpful when meeting us from the transfer and gave us useful tips on how to find it. It is a little out of the way, but only a few minutes from the main Medina. We enjoyed a lovely home cooked meal on our first night and the staff were very helpful whenever we had any questions.

This is the second riad i stayed in in marrakech. And it is horrible compared to first (Riad Adore, amazing) Location - very bad location, in non touristic streets, and they definitely are remote and you will feel scared while walking to the riad at night, or even at any time. Payment- no credit card allowed. Can’t believe they don’t accept credit card. I can just say that after visiting marrakech for the second time and booking someplace new to get to know another place. Never would book it again!

I booked a 3 night stay at Lalla F'Dila when travelling to Marrakech with my brother last week, and we were immediately surprised how quiet and tranquil the riad was considering the hustle and bustle of the souks and the medina. Hafida, Abdou, Naijia and Fatima made our stay very comfortable, the riad was spotlessly clean and beautifully traditional. Abdou showed us to our room and was able to tell us so much about this ancient place. The food was beautiful and the breakfast were fresh, each morning Naijia cooked a traditional accompaniment to the usual pastries and bread, which was always lovely! Thank you guys for our lovely experience and endless knowledge you shared with us. Cant wait to visit you all again!

This Riad is a wonderful place to stay and so relaxing. The staff were attentive without being intrusive, always ready to assist and had a lovely sense of humour. Exquisite decor, excellent location, can’t wait to return.

We have just had the most bazar trip to Marrakesh, 3.5hours flight and like stepping back in time 150 years. not for the faint hearted. however this Riad was a relaxing and safe feeling retreat, from the madness of the madina, particularly Hafid who worked the nightshift, he was very attentive and informative. we eat in a couple of evening meals which was presented and cooked very nicely. if you really need to visit the madina then this is prefect place to come back to.
