Located in the medina of Marrakech close to the soukhs and bustling Jemaa-el-Fna square, Riad el Mezouar is a tranquil and unexpected hideaway. The villa was constructed in the XVIIth and XVIIIth centuries by the royal household for one of their important members of staff who was called the Mezouar, or head of royal protocol at that time, which explains its graceful and subtly grand architecture. Now a Maison d'Hotes, the riad offers 5 spacious en-suite rooms situated around the courtyard pool or on the first floor gallery level. Depending on the season, breakfast is served on the roof terrace, around the pool in the shady courtyard, the fireside winter salon or in the guest rooms. Dinner is available on request, prepared by a Moroccan cook. The aquamarine pool and rose fountain surrounded by flowers and mature trees provide a sanctuary for birds and offer shade during the heat of the day. From the roof terrace there are splendid views of the snow-covered Atlas mountains.

In all languages the Riad El Mezouar just gets better and better. This was my third visit in 5 years. From delicious breakfasts on the terrace to dinners in the salon in front of the fireplace, Romaine Lancaster's care and hospitably made my recent stay memorable. Concerning COVID: From the moment I arrived she and her staff took the necessary sanitary precautions and protections seriously, which was a huge relief to me. Truly a restful stay with all the trimmings throughout the recent holidays and respite from these turbulent times we are all living through.

The owner Romaine has a lot to do with making our stay so enjoyable. Besides her wonderful engaging personality she pointed us in the direction of locales, restaurants, sites, etc that would interest us. Her Riad is beyond amazing and tranquil after a busy day in the hustle and bustle of Marrakech. Delightful food, drinks, and lively conversation. Romaine has made her surroundings an Oasis in the desert with decor that your eyes will drink up and savor for years to come.

Friends who had stayed here the previous year for a special birthday celebration, highly recommended Riad El Mezouar to us and we're glad they did. This is a stunning retreat in the hustle and bustle of the medina. Romaine, the owner, has created the most tranquil haven, where service is exemplary and the finer details taken care of - delicious brunch, drinks by the fire, dinner indoors overlooking the pool, a hot water bottle in your bed and the most exquisite bedroom suite. It was a such a special way to end our travels in Morocco.

A beautiful riad in a convenient location for seeing some interesting parts of the city. We walked everywhere but it’s easy to get a taxi from nearby as well. Romaine and another of her charming guests welcomed us warmly and we had a delicious meal and lovely conversation the night we arrived which happened to be Christmas Eve. A very pleasant start to our few days of holiday! A word of thanks must go to the wonderful staff. Ismaeel, Mustafa, Khadija and her colleague whose name I didn’t catch, all looked after us perfectly and the food in particular was extraordinarily good. Brunch on the terrace each day was so generous that we didn’t need lunches. If you feel like eating in one night I heartily recommend it! Booking direct secures a discount so well worth seeking out the website and emailing Romaine. If we are ever back in Marrakech we would definitely be staying back here and I’ll be recommending it to anyone who asks me where to stay!

We stayed at Riad El Mezouar recently and found the establishment to be really most exceptional. Romaine was a fantastic host being both really friendly and helpful. She gave us invaluable tips about the locality and what to see in the relatively short time we were there (three nights) The riad itself is stunning and it has been decorated and furnished to a very high standard. We really liked the fact that it only has a handful of bedrooms. The staff are charming and attentive and the food we had there was the best we had in the city. If you haven't been to a riad before, then this is the place to stay! It comes highly recommended. Thank you to Romaine and to her staff for making our stay so memorable.
