This was our first stop off on our honeymoon and we loved it! The room was beautiful, the pool area cool and relaxing (and beautifully scented with jasmine and orange tress) and the food (both breakfasts and dinner) was amazing. Nothing was too much trouble - we needed to book a coach to Agadir and were given really clear instructions... More

This is a lovely little place to stay, all the rooms are bright and clean and come with Air Con which is lovely after a day of trekking around. The Roof Terrace is lovely to sit with a book and a drink and just chill. Staff are very helpful and welcoming. The breakfast is lovely, fresh fruit and bread. The... More

The Riad was very authentic. Great roof terrace. Staff are extremely friendly and helpful. They even organise the transfers to and from airport at a small cost. Breakfast was lovely. The only downside was the smell of cat urine from the many stray cats, but not really the Riad's fault. Ideally located to visit the Souks etc

Myself and a friend stayed in Riad Dar El Aila for 2 nights in June. The riad is absolutely beautiful - very ornately styled. The breakfast was very tasty, and the roof terrace was particularly stunning, with couches and loungers overlooking the entire city. The staff were extremely helpful, and even drew us a map when we arrived to help... More

From the minute you arrive you are bowled over by the services, the peace, the roof terrace, the breakfast, the views and the decoration. Our 2 bedroom suit was spectacular with a huge central lounge which could rate in the top 10 attractions of Marrakech itself. Organise a transfer with the Road as maybe difficult to find.

We stayed for 3 nights/4 days in this traditional old riad in the family 2 bedroom suite which was beautifully furnished and was cool and quiet - we all slept very well. Fantastic roof top terraces where you can see and hear the city with the Atlas mountains in the background - can't get much better than that! The staff... More

We stayed for 2 nights only but the Riad was just what was expected: old, traditional, cosy, and authentic. We felt as if not in a hotel but in a family house. It is very difficult to find in the maze that is the Medina, but once you get into the rhythm of Marrakech, it becomes so familiar that you... More
