Excellent service they arranged everything for us: excursions, restaurants, taxis. The bed and pillows were amazing, best I have slept in a long time! Bring your soap and shampoo though, as I couldn't figure out which one was what :) I recommend it 100% thanks to all the personnel, they were very nice and helpful.... And the massage was great!

Best experience and a unique sort of stay, warm experience and very peaceful. Went in December 2015 around Christmas time and never expected to see Christmas decor in Morocco. Hotel service is really genuine, they had emailed us beforehand about the dinner event plan on Christmas night, after a long day of traveling from Casablanca and then walking around Medina,... More

It's amazing to think that through one small door you find this Riad, but once there it is a well run, efficient oasis in an otherwise hectic and sometimes stressful old city. The staff were excellent, happy to do anything (within reason) such as go outside and get you anything you need food / drinks wise if it was not... More

This was our first visit to a riad in marrekesh. It was incredible to enter this oasis after a busy day in the hustle and bustle of the medina. The rooms were beautiful, very unusual. There were some housekeeping issues, so don't expect the slickness of a 5 star hotel. The male waiting staff were very friendly, they gave advice... More

We arranged a transfer from the airport which was 15 € , the price locally should be70 /80 dirham but you wouldn't necessarily know that when you arrived. It was good to have someone waiting for us at the airport and not have to worry about getting to the Riad and walking the last bit to the door .Really lovely... More

Although hard to find and a little off the beaten track this Riad exudes calmness amongst the hustle and bustle of Marrakech. The tranquility of the open air pool and rooftop terrace makes for a perfect place to recoup, relax and read. The staff, in particular a chap named Joel, was informative, helpful and couldn't have done more for us.

I spent a week here with my girlfriend and we both loved the place. The Taxi dropped us off in the medina, where locals were gathered doing their shopping, relaxing or getting shelter from the 40 degree heat. Motorbikes slowly weaved in between the people on foot and the smell of street food filled the air. A short walk led... More
