Stayed here for 3 nights as a present to my mum for her 50th birthday, everything was perfect, cannot recommend this place highly enough. Youseef had a taxi collect us from the airport which was cheaper than you would be charged if did yourself from airport, highly recommended letting Youseef and the team cook for you, was such a tasty...

A quiet hidden gem at the Kasbah. Perfect retreat after a hard day of haggling in town. Really wonderful staff, friendly and professional. I would recommend it to anyone looking for something private, homely and somewhat different from the usual large hotel chain accommodation.

My friend and I stayed at the Riad Dar Massai for 5 nights. Everything was great! Youssef is such a nice person. Everytime we asked him for advice or to organize something, he did it right away. The rooms are very nice, lovely and clean. We always had breakfast on the little rooftop and it was fantastic. Excellent coffee and... More

Once you have actually found this Riad in a maze of narrow alleyways it is beautiful inside. We had the room on the top floor, which was perfect and traditionally decorated in a modern african theme. There are no views from the rooftop terrace, but it does get sun all day long, which is great. The food at the Riad... More

Although we didn't like the location of Dar Massai, this little Dar is quaint. The room we booked was rather small but clean. We tried one of their special meals which we loved but we found it a bit overpriced camparing it to the prices outside. We tried to book a day trip to the waterfalls but the hotel staff... More

This small riad nestles inside the Medina in Marrakech not far from the main square. Our taxi dropped us close by and we walked the final 200m up a narrow lane with our bags carried in a wheeled cart sent by the riad. A pot of hot mint tea is the usual welcome for guests in Morocco and this was... More

My boyfriend and I recently returned from a trip to Marrakech, and were incredibly pleased with our stay at Riad Dar Massai. The location was perfect: 15 minutes walk to the main square and most touristic attractions in Marrakech; also well situated for a quick taxi ride to the airport. The Riad itself was beautiful, well decorated, and impeccably clean.... More

My husband and I had a pleasant stay at Riad Dar Massai. The Riad is a peaceful haven away from the hustle of Marrakech. We stayed in a room on the ground floor which was traditionally decorated and cleaned daily. The bathroom was traditional in stone furnishings and we had very soft towels! We would've probably preferred a room on... More
