We stayed a week in this raid, very nice building and pretty bedrooms ,it has a lovely roof terrace . We ate there twice but found that there was nothing to do after our meal and it did get cold in the evening . The centre heating failed to come on except for 2 evening and never in the mornings so we and the other guests were very cold

I cannot emphasize the Joy we felt at the Riad Laurence Olivier enough. We were there a total of ten days and were able to experience a couple of different rooms. Each room tells a unique story, with the choice of color and presentation of the space. Very beautiful and sparkling clean! The attention to detail is loving and precise, from the decor to the beautiful smell of the soap. The staff is kind and considerate, many have been working here for five to ten years! There is a feeling of trust and a sense of home after coming in from the hectic market scene. The main square is a short walk away, though you may want to plan a day to just sit around the Riad by the pool, or get a spa treatment. The breakfast is really good and dinner in the garden has a lovely atmosphere. You can see the birds flying during the day, and these small cute bats at dusk. Make sure to witness either sunrise or sunset on the roof top. Laurence, the owner and manager is a loving host. She is also a very interesting person that has written several books, ask her about them! Her care and passion for Marrakech and the Riad shows. She is available often for warm conversations and recommendations for her guests. You will enjoy this treat/trip!

ROOM – We stayed in a gorgeous, spacious, blue themed room. It was very large with a comfortable firm double bed. The room was really beautiful with traditional Moroccan style furnishings. The room has excellent AC and proper windows which close fully (unlike like some other Riad hotels I have stayed in). The bathroom was clean and practical, built in a typical style with stunning blue mosaic tiles. We loved the bathroom amenities too! LOCATION- The Riad Lawrence Olivier is in a great area of Marrakech, in the Old Town medina area of the city, about 10 minutes walk from the busiest areas and restaurants. It feels very safe around this part of the medina and I enjoyed walking around the quiet streets and taking photos. I also walked to the Koutoubia mosque from the riad very easily. FACILITIES – The entire riad is simply stunning and so photogenic, I don’t know what my favourite part of it was! I loved the cool central courtyard with lovely trees and greenery surrounding a picturesque mosaic tiled fountain water feature. I also thought the roof terrace was fantastic, with sun beds, tables and chairs, wonderful plants, and views across the city in every direction. The highlight for most people is probably the large swimming pool which is in full sunlight at around midday, but in part shade in the morning and late afternoon. Overlooking the pool is a very pretty tiled yard with daybeds, and another impeccable mosaic water feature. FOOD – We loved our breakfast every morning at Riad Lawrence Olivier! It was always delicious and picture perfect. It was great that we could choose a different spot to eat every morning (we ate on the roof one day and by the pool another day). The coffee was good and we enjoyed the traditional tea as well. The fresh orange juice and delicious seasonal fruit bowls were a highlight, as were the fresh baked roti pancakes and home made fig jam. STAFF – Simmo the doorman, and acting manger was lovely. His English is not perfect, but he is very good at his job, very pleasant to deal with, and offers great suggestions for restaurants and cafes as needed.
