This review is well overdue, however as proof of how much we enjoyed it, after nearly six months, my partner and I still talk about how amazing our stay was here (almost on a weekly basis!), and cannot wait to one day return again. From the moment we arrived, Romaine was a truly gracious and welcoming host. The riyad has...

Dear Krista, How lovely you and your partner are still thinking about Riad el Mezouar six months after your visit! I realise it is such a long way to come but we would welcome you back any time. I can't guarantee you will have the riad to yourselves next time but as you know, there are many quiet corners in...

We had a wonderful welcome from Romaine, the English owner, and her lovely staff, to the Riad she has restored quite beautifully. It is an oasis of peace and calm in the middle of the hustle and bustle of Marrakech. We had a fabulous room overlooking the courtyard, the pretty roof terrace where we had breakfast looks out to the...

I'm so glad we found this riad through a friend. From the first contact they were helpful and informative. We wanted to stay in Marrakech for some of the time and then in the Atlas Mountains. They sent me various links so I could research and decide where to go. We were met at the airport late evening and whisked...

Arriving into this Riad was a little bit magical. The fire was lighting and there were candles all around the beautiful courtyard. It is a simply beautiful property and our room was gorgeous. There are so many beautiful little touches. The location is ideal if you want to be in the heart of the action in the Medina. The entire...

I decided to treat myself to a private birthday party at Riyad El Mezouar as I'd been recommended to it by a couple of friends. From the moment we arrived a little travel weary from first flight out of Gatwick, we were transported into an oasis of grace and tranquility. The new English owner Romaine, has lovingly restored the Riyad,...

Thank you Jacqueline for your review which is much appreciated. I am delighted that we were able to host your birthday party and special birthday guests.

Where can I start. The short version. Perfect location, perfectly and tastefully restored traditional Riad, perfect hospitality and staff and perfect advice on experiencing Marrakesh's treasures at a pace that suits you.

Utterly lovely is this recently restored Riad in heart of the North Medina. Beautiful bedrooms each with a distinctive style ranging from the opulent, gorgeous Mezouar room where the original merchant owners would have reclined to the calming atmosphere of Yasmin on the ground floor. At the heart of the Riad is a gorgeous dipping pool - ideal to cool...

We had the most wonderful three days at El Mezouar. It is simply magical. Romaine has invested her heart and soul (and fabulous taste) in to turning this into the most beautiful and peaceful retreat in the heart of Marrakesh. My daughter and I loved it. Our very own secret palace. Can't recommend enough.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located in the medina of Marrakech close to the soukhs and bustling Jemaa-el-Fna square, Riyad 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 and the famous Koutoubia mosque. This is a quiet space in which to enjoy both the sun and stars where refreshments are served from the terrace kitchen throughout the day and evening. ... more   less
