Beautifully finished riad in the medina, with a courtyard, roof terrace and small pool. Helpful staff. We ate dinner here one night - recommended. They arranged a day trip to Volubilis and Moulay Idriss, also recommended.

My husband and I just returned from spending a number of days in Morocco including several nights at Riad El Ma. The stay at the Riad was lovely in all ways.

I was the only guest and so I was allowed to upgrade my room at no cost. The rooms were lovely, terrace was very nice and staff were so friendly and helpful, even assisted me in buying some silk thread from a shop just across from the Riad. The mint tea and cookies on arrival were a lovely touch. I... More

We had two nights in Riad el Ma. Staff was attentive and friendly. Room was clean and comfortable. Location wasn't too bad. Pleasant experience without being exciting to any degree. The establishment could do with a bit more owner's love and attention.

This is a great riad in the heart of the Medina. We spent 5 nights in the red room, which is quite spacious and comfortable, with a view of the charming courtyard from the second floor. The staff, including both Aminas, were very kind and helpful and were always available to answer questions. The daily breakfast (included in the price)... More

We were there right after New Year. Very low season. We got really lucky as the hotel was empty so we got full attention. The onwer and the lady working there are tremendous. Very friendly and helpful. The owner did not speak English. We had the white suite which was great! The Riad/House is impressive and I think the terrace... More

Where to start? The riad is charming, beautifully cared for and supervised by the two hosts, each Amina. The younger Amina arranged for transportation, was generous with helpful advice, and even found time to escort us around the souk. We had arranged to have dinner at El Ma on our first evening, and it was so delicious that we took... More

I truly cant say enough about this amazing Riad and the hospitality we received from the Amina's. We booked this stay based on the reviews on Tripadvisor and we were not dissapointed. After ten days traveling around Morocco this small Oasis in the middle of the Meknes Medina was a very pleasant surprise. Amina made us a Lamb Tangine that... More

We found El Ma on Tripadvisor and booked the White Suite which had its own staircase and was large, private and very comfortable. For a riad room, we had lots of windows, a large sofa, a great deal of storage space, bedside tables and shelves with reading lights and a large bathroom with a shower, lots of hot water and...
