I booked this riad after reading the reviews on here. The villa is located in the Kasaba area of Marrakech, it's not too far from the hussle and bustle of Jemil al Efna square. We arrived at 11 in the morning as we had a very early flight from Gatwick, the hotel staff were so lovely and welcoming. We were... More

Villa Makassar is a truly magical place. It wraps it's arms around you from the moment you walk through the huge door - a true contrast to what lies outside! The beauty of this place lies in the warmth and welcome of the staff, the calm atmosphere, attention to detail and almost above all, the discretion of the whole place... More

I booked this hotel as a surprise to my husband for our wedding anniversary after reading the reviews. We arrived late in the evening and were upgraded to a large suite which was very nice of them. We were shown to our room and it was boiling and had a sewage smell which we told the porter. The air-conditioning did... More

What a great surprise reading your review. You staid with us 6 nights and 7 days, and never you expressed any dissatisfaction. As a well gesture, as it was your wedding anniversary, we did a free upgrade from junior suite to luxury suite (Rousseau), which is our best room. The air conditioning was working perfectly in this room until you... More

I’d seen Villa Makassar featured in a recent Telegraph article of the ‘ Top 10: best riad hotels in Marrakech’, so it was great when i discovered they had (affordable) availability for a trip to celebrate my 40th Birthday! It’s in a great location - in the Kasbah quarter, within the walls of the medina - near the Saadian Tombs... More

Behind those wooden doors is an oasis of calm and tranquility. Beautiful touches of 'Art Deco' styling which is a welcome change from the contemporary look that my partner and I are used to. The junior suite was clean, spacious and very comfortable. We had a wonderful time relaxing on the roof terrace and in the spa. The staff made... More

We stayed 7 nights in this impeccably clean and beautifully decorated Riad where we felt as though it was our own private residence with ample staff. From arrival to departure we were always treated with exquisitely attentive yet discreet care. I'm an avid swimmer and each day I had the pool to myself, followed by late afternoons or early evenings... More

Really like this place. It is located in an area called the Kasbah. It's a bit more updated, and the décor might be described as Morrocan art deco. We got upgraded to the jacuzzi suite. While it was a very nice sentiment, it didn't work out well for us because it had no shower. I'm 6'3 there are not many... More

We checked into 2 rooms, one of which was a junior suite. A beautiful place with private spa & jacuzzi areas. Staff were incredibly helpful. They made us feel very welcome. Yusuf deserves a mention as he was extremely charming even when the breakfast area was busy. Would definitely stay there again.

This boutique Art Deco style hotel is in the old town, about 20 minute walk to the main square and the souks. It's ideally placed for exploring the old narrow streets. If you get lost (like we did), look out for cafe clock. It is just down the same street from there. We loved the fact that the raids are... More

It doesn't look much from the outside, but inside it is a total oasis of calm, tranquility and total utter luxury. The rooms are beautiful, shaded and very quiet, whilst the roof top sun terrace is the perfect space for a lazy afternoon with a book and a long tall drink. The pool, whilst chilly, is brilliant for cooling off... More
