We really enjoyed our stay at Le Riad Monceau. It's a two minute walk to the main square. So it was perfect to go out and explore but return to chill for an hour or so before venturing out again. The staff were very friendly. We've got to give a special mention to the receptionist Abdulhaq who was excellent to deal with. He had brilliant English. He gave great directions and he answered all our questions with a smile (and we had a lot!). The bar staff were also very friendly and accommodating. It was noticeable they were slightly understaffed, so you could tell they felt under pressure. Our room was a decent size. It definitely felt authentic. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was a good size. We felt very comfortable. We had a nice terrace area overlooking the pool. The only issues we experienced were the safe didn't work and the WiFi was poor. The restaurant and pool area was very nice. It was relaxing to have a good breakfast every morning here. The rooftop terrace has a bar that runs from midday through to 11. It's a nice spot to relax, sip some beer and play cards. We watched the sun set most evening before we went to the square for some food. On our final night, they had a jazz band and we got to listen from our terrace with the staff offering to bring our drinks there. We ate at the restaurant on the final night and it was a lovely romantic dinner. Our only negative during our stay was the massage. My wife and I got massages and we didn't feel it was value for money. The massage was for an hour but after 40 minutes they stopped and let us relax for the final 20 minutes. We could hear them chatting and joking outside the room. Aside from the fact we paid for an hour massage, it wasn't relaxing to hear that. Other than that experience, the rest of our stay at Riad Monceau was excellent.

We were in Marrakech on vacation and spent one of the nights at Riad Monceau. Our initial arrival was less than stellar. We had been conned by a taxi driver in cahoots with some gentlemen escorting baggage with a wheel barrel. The driver told us he could get us to the front door of the Riad, however, this was the only Riad on our trip that had NO ACCESS by car. We were dropped off at a crosswalk, and immediately 4 men with one wheel barrel showed up and pulled our bags out of the taxi. They were not associated with the Riad. They took off running with our bags and told us to follow. We had already paid the taxi driver, and got no info from him. About 4 minutes later we arrived at the BACK DOOR (under construction) of the Riad. All 4 demanded $40 for their services. We just took a 25 minute taxi drive for $10, so we knew were being scammed. My husband told them no way, and we said we'd ask the the front desk of the Riad if this was normal before paying them. Of course they got skitish and started arguing with us. The man at the front desk that day was utterly useless. He didn't speak much English, and acted like he had no idea what we should be paying. The jerk should have stepped up for us, as his guests and handled it like a professional hotel personnel. My husband gave the 4 guys $20 bucks, and told them to get lost. I will say this was the ONLY crappy experience we had on this trip, thankfully. Regarding the Riad: First of all, the rooms were TINY with barely enough room to walk around the bed if luggage was out. Second we expected a KING bed, and got a Queen bed. Tough when both people are very tall. The TV remote was missing, as was enough toilet paper, so we had to wait a bit to get that handled.The safe didn't lock properly. Bathroom layout is weird, and difficult to navigate the doorway at night. Wifi & TV reception, as in most Riads, was poor. On the plus side, we took a cooking class at the Riad that evening and it was wonderfully done. The woman chef was lovely! She really did a very nice class. There were 4 of us and we were taught Lamb & Chicken Tagine, as well as, a vegi Pastisse. The room we cooked in was beautifully laid out, and afterwards we ate around the pool in the courtyard. Plus, the highlight of the night was getting to meet Ainsley Harriott, the British chef who happened to be filming a cooking show on one of the patios while we were there. The following morning we talked to a new gentleman who took over the front desk. This man was a professional, spoke great English and gave us lots of useful information. Too bad that they don't train all their front desk people at this level. We saw the other clown (from the day before) later that day, as he also gave ridiculous info to another couple trying to navigate transportation to the airport. So, very mixed feelings about this Riad. The layout of the whole building is sort of strange, and difficult to navigate. Not sure if they screwed up our room, or if all the rooms are tiny. It was the most expensive and least impressive of the Riad's we visited on the trip. The location was supposed to be closer to the main plaza, so perhaps they felt this compensated for the other things that were lacking.

This is my second visit to this peaceful and exotic Riad and I just can’t get enough of this place and the warm welcome I receive. If you want authentic traditional Moroccan with all the 5star mood go no further. The ambiance of this Riad is stunning but the staff is what makes it. I thank Soufiane and Brahim for their continued pride and professionalism in their work and Maryam and Mouhssin for their warmth and hospitality. Thankyou again for making my stay another memorable one.

STay here for two nights in May. The location is excellent and the property is beautiful. The restaurant food and the roof top bar are very good. What let this place down is we found the staff more interested in their phones and the internet on their reception computer than servicing their customers needs and just basic communication seemed to be a problem. The Internet did not work in the room we were staying in and there was a loud grinding noise outside our room on both afternoons. Would not stay here again.
