The best place to stay in Marrakesh! Nelly's team with Redouan and the ladies were so lovely. The breakfasts are delicious and vary every day - we enjoyed the roof terrace so much. The two cook ladies made our stay unforgettable. We also received good tips for restaurants and places to visit right in the beginning from Redouan which helped... More

We liked everything about this riad, our room was just the right size, bed was comfortable, had a nice duvet on it, and the pillows were to my liking, which doesn't happen very often, so much so that I normally carry my own, but didn't on this occasion. There is also a safe, which is useful, but I really didn't... More

We just got back from a 3 day trip to Marrakech - we blindly booked this Riad and it was fabulous! Nelly & staff were top notch - they took care of everything from airport transport, to setting up a hamam @ the riad & (most important) a very detailed tutorial of the city once we checked in. It is... More

This is beauty and luxury at a great price. We cannot praise this riad enough, everything about our stay here in early December was pure pleasure: the warm welcome, the central location, the relaxing atmosphere, the beautiful chic room, the food, the massage, and for me, the perfect mattress for my back problem! Nothing was too much trouble for the... More

We spent 4 nights at Riad Vanilla Spa. The owner Nelly was away during our visit, but Redwan and Sultana looked after us incredibly well. The rooms were beautiful and the baths the biggest I've seen! - I had booked the "moon room" for the 4 nights, but after 2 nights Sultana (the cook/housekeeper) requested that we change rooms. Due...
