Riad Alma is a lovely place to stay. We had 4 rooms and stayed 4 days. We the rooms were combination of rooms and suites. All are very spacious, designed with a stylish Moroccan touch, lovely toiletries in the bathroom, very clean and well equipped with beautiful local jewels. Each room opens to a balcony where you can sit outside and enjoy the quite atmosphere of the riad. The Riad itself is an oasis of calm and tranquility. Two courtyards, one with a nice small pool. Plenty of common space where we were able to gather together. All the public spaces are decorated with beautiful authentic style. Everything made the feeling of a lovely living home. There is a beautiful rooftop where rich breakfast is served. It's also a great place for sunrise and sunset. Our experience was made more delightful by the kindness and patience of the staff. Ahmed is always around to help with a smile. The food prepared by Khadija was the best food we had in Morocco. We had dinner twice in the Riad, as going out to eat after our first dinner at Riad Alma was not an option 😊

We had an absolutely superb 7 nights at Riad Alma. The staff are just so kind and helpful, nothing is too much bother. The riad is beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean and has lovely facilities. It is in an interesting area of the city but calm and tranquil. You can eat in,we had a tasty traditional meal which we asked for at short notice, or there are many lovely restaurants within a 10minute walk. You can then return to share a bottle of wine either in the courtyard beside the pool or on the starry roof terrace.

Home a way from home. Wonderful decor, comfortable and large rooms. Rooftop for both sunrise and sunsets. Pleasant and helpful staff. Excellent food- probably the best couscous we had in Morocco - 20 min. Walk or 10 min drive from Jamaa El Fna.

Down a dusty, winding passageway in a working part of the medina, past motorbike repair shops, men’s and women’s clothes shops, butchers, bakers, woodworkers, children playing in the street, potted plants, building sites, ever winding until you come to a number on a terracotta wall,through a studded wooden door into an beautifully cool oasis, quiet where outside was a clamour of clashing sounds and colours, inside all is tasteful and calm, a mint tea is brought and soon you are shown to a room which is perfect. Later you can have wine before a dinner prepared and served by women who know exactly how a tagine is the best way of making the best of local ingredients. Or you can venture out into the wild, beautiful night of Marrakesh and sample the delights of a thousand different eating places. Next day is another adventure!

We had 3 wonderful nights in Marrakesh. We were able to enjoy the hustle and bustle whilst escaping to the peace and quiet of Riad Alma. It’s tucked away on some quiet back streets so recommend the airport transfer as they walk you up to the door, although it’s well signposted. The team welcomed us with mint tea and we didn’t have to wait long for the room to be ready. The whole place is beautifully decorated and our room was lovely. Only a few small things - the shower didn’t attach to the wall and there was no hand soap and a few things in the room were broken. The breakfast was really nice, you could have it when you liked, you were given a generous spread although there was no choice but it was all very tasty. The pool is nice for a dip and a cool off after a hot day sightseeing but it’s not really big enough to swim in. The proximity to the sights is not too bad but in July when it was in mid 30s we struggled a bit with the walk and had to take cabs a few times. They will help you find one if you need help. I think the thing that impressed us the most was the hospitality. No request was too big or too small, the team were super friendly and we really felt at home during our stay. I would definitely recommend Riad Alma.

My boyfriend and I stayed in Riad Alma for a week and we had an amazing time. Great service, delicious food and very clean. Unfortunately I can't give it a 5 star as the hotel was very echoey and a little bit far away from everywhere - we'd had to get a taxi most places. If you're looking for somewhere that is quiet but not too far away from the madness of Marrakech, this is the place for you.

My friend and I came to Morocco and stayed at Riad Alma before driving to the Sahara. We were met by Ahmed who was so friendly and welcoming we immediately felt at home. The Riad is intimate and yet has plenty of room for you to have privacy. It feels like you are staying with good friends. The owners, Samira and her Jacques, were there as well with their friends and they invited us to dinner and immediately we fell in love with the place. I almost don’t want to tell people about it because i want to keep it my own little secret.... it’s really special. We arrived late upon our first night and they had prepared a DELICIOUS lamb tagine dinner on the rooftop Terrance for us that we still talk about to this day. It was perfect and we have since asked for the recipe because it was the best food we had in Morocco. They kindly shared this with us. We had booked a different Riad after our trip to Sahara and were so sad not to have been at Riad Alma that we ate there again for the lamb tagine, walking at night through the windy streets ...risking getting lost at night just to be back with Samira and everyone at Riad Alma. Ahmed walked us all the way back to our other Riad and we have been talking about how great they were to us ever since. We adore Riad Alma and highly recommend it. Thank you for a wonderful stay!! I look forward to coming back.

Dear Jill I have a great memory of your visit to Riad Alma. I remember your arrival very tired after a trip to the sahara. You were with your friend for her birthday. I especially remember your return to eat the best tagine of lamb from Morocco. It is true that Khadija has an exceptional method to prepare his dishes, everything is excellent. You promised to come back, so we are waiting for you and your family. Samira and Alma team

We have just returned from staying at the Riaad, and can highly recommend it, although a walk to the main square you will appreciate the stillness as you walk through the door. The staff were lovely and the little touches of roses and drinks served on our last night were so thoughtful. Loved our stay with you.

My husband and I had a lovely time staying at Riad Alma for 5 nights. The staff are very attentive to your needs ,one day I was sick with a cold and they had breakfast delivered to me in bed since I could not go down to the dining room. If you requested a taxi at night for a restaurant then Ahmed at reception would wait with you until the taxi arrived and would walk with you down the Medina alleyways late at night.. we had a lovely 3 course dinner on our last night very tasty. Riad Alma is a nice hidden Oasis form the crazy hustle and bustle of the main square Jemna-el Fna... lovely rooftop unfortunately the weather was not as nice as we had hoped to enjoy the rooftop...maybe next time. Rooms are clean and quite spacious...only things I would complain about is that our shower would leak outside quite a bit but the water was powerful and warm..also waking up to the birds at 7am seemed nice but there were so many it seemed living in the trees so could get very noisy..such is nature ! WiFi can be spotty but you are on vacation so who cares..would recommend to family and friends to stay here Thank you for the hospitality Riad Alma Kavitha and Nathan
