We had a very nice stay in this beautiful Riad. It's nice to see how hard working and very friendly people can build out such a lovely Riad and brand new restaurant! Let's hope that UNESCO will do a good job at the historical kashbah so there will be even more reasons to go to Ait Benhaddou.

We stayed here a night awaiting for our next tour group to arrive. The pool area was very relaxing, and we enjoyed some delicious turkey skewers for lunch here. The rooms have names instead of numbers, and the doors are quite small. I'm under six foot and had to duck quite a bit just to get in! Funny place, I... More

Our room was fine but the decor was a little strange...not sure what theme they were going for but seemed to us to be a bit of the wild west mixed in with a desert theme...rifles in the room were a little odd! We arrived late - too late for us to eat a big meal and they were kind... More

Stayed one night on a G Adventures tour. Not sure what you should expect in the way of accommodations at Aït Benhaddou, but Riad Maktoub offers clean, basic rooms. The furnishings showed some wear, there was only one electrical outlet, and the lighting was adequate, but not bright. The bath had a shower and a small sink; no shelves or... More

We stumbled in the restaurant after a very hot visit to the Ksar and it was so nice! I could have my feet in the pool while waiting for the food, which was very good and even catering for my vegetarian needs. It was a very pleasant, cool and calm place to sit, with friendly staff and a very nice... More

Although we were given a very spacious room with its own private balcony, we found this riad to be a bit unkept and in some areas (and in need of maintenance) and the communal dining room very dark and uninviting - a bit like a cave. The breakfast was not good and in terms of quantity was the worst we'd... More

Our travel company described this riad as a simple desert inn, and If ratings were based on outward appearances alone this three star establishment would score very well. A well-presented building in desert-style materials and architecture, the interior was attractive and included a courtyard with pool. The riad also does very well with its food offerings; our chicken tagine was... More

This riad is located exactly across the street from the main entrance to the Ksar of Ait Benhaddou, the prime attraction of the area. Our rooms were fine, quiet, and well appointed. The restaurant was fine for both dinner and breakfast, the latter included in the room price, which was quite reasonable at 500 MAD (around 45 euros) for two.

stayed here for a night, nothing to complain about, but felt like it was overpriced, and we were the only people in the whole place! The breakfast was very good though! The room was odd and the bathroom tiny, beds hard and pillows lumpy. Did not use the spa service.
