Stunning Riad with lovely welcoming and friendly staff. Located just down a short alley from the Souk and close enough for you to be in the heart of the city and in the main square in no time. The Riad is beautiful, both cool and lovely and the welcome is tremendous. The staff are so welcoming and couldn't do enough... More

Nadia and her lovely staff went out of their way to make our stay a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Nothing was too much trouble from advising on and booking day trips, to making us feel pampered and relaxed whilst at the riad. Breakfast was excellent and the evening meals we had were superb - would strongly recommend anyone staying to eat... More

This is a wonderful riad in the heart of the Medina. As suggested by the management, we left our rental car in a parking at the edge of the medina and let a porter guide us through the narrow alleys. Once inside, it was a pleasant surprise to find a lovely quiet and cool patio which made us immediately forget... More

We spent 3 nights at the Riad Ilayka in Marrakech as part of a twelve day tour of Morocco. Although the accommodation is often described as comprising seven luxurious suites, our room was not large and had no separate sitting area. The lights had poor fittings which meant that sometimes they did not work and the room was dingy. Rugs... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. All the staff were very welcoming and attentive. The riad is attractively furnished and very well kept with plenty of places to sit and relax. The breakfasts were really delicious. Would highly recommend this riad for a stay in Marrakech.

Hidden away in the depths of the Medina in Marrakesh, we were taken to this excellent Riad. We had very comfortable rooms - but the downside was the lack of light - I think this is quite normal but takes a bit of getting used to. Breakfast was very good - other meals were available but were "on request". Dinner... More

Loved the place. The riad has a personalized atmosphere. The lovely outdoor areas are especially nice. The little "tower" on top of the roof is a nice place to relax, and there is also sunbeds, so one can get a taste of the sun, in between of shopping and walking in the souk.It is a good place to just be.

Myself and Fiancée Andrea have just returned home after a weeks stay at the Riad, we both agree it was a fantastic experience. Firstly, we got picked up from the Airport (20 Euro fee) and got dropped off at the Riad. We were both welcomed by the staff and shown to our room which was on the ground floor. The... More

We have just returned from a long weekend and cannot rate this Riad highly enough. It is in an excellent location for exploring the city as it is just a few minutes walk to the Souks and Jemaa el Fna. The staff are fantastic and cannot do enough for you.
