Staff were so helpful and willing to take the time to sit with us and offer advice and get to know us. A thank you to Mohammed who arranged for a visit to Kasbah Africa at the end of the week also, sorting out the detail and arranging taxis. I also found the welcome pack in Riad Africa very helpful...

Our family visited Morocco for the first time and Riad Africa was the perfect place to stay. What made our trip so special was the hospitality offered by Mohammed and Rashid who did everything to make our trip special.

It offers the opportunity to be in the middle of the vibrant city life, and to relax and recharge your fuel at the pools or at the roof terraces.

Stayed here in June with 3 friends and was really impressed! We were given the Casablanca suite which was lovely, huge bathroom. Looking back we should have had 2 twin rooms for a bit of extra space but this suite was beautiful, perhaps better for a family rather than 4 adults. The highlight for us all was the rooftop terrace.... More
