“Lovely stay in marrakesh”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2014

First time visitors to marrakesh could be daunted, but the owners had thought of everything with a log book full of advise. Carole was so helpful made you feel so special. A tranquil oasis in a bustling city. We had a wonderful meal too.

Renaud and Carole were the perfect and knowledgeable hosts of this traditional Moroccan house, now a Riad. Our room was small, yet perfectly adequate, and opened on to a small internal courtyard, keeping us away from any external noise. Continental Breakfast, with a Maroccan twist, was served on the roof terrace. Dinner was served in the comfortable lounge, since the Feburary evenings were chilly. The food was excellent.

This Riad is in a quiet area of the Medina; perfect for us as it was away from the noise and hustlers of the Souks. This meant that most local attractions were 15 to 30 minutes walk away (we always felt safe). However we quickly learn that the shops selling Maroccan pastries were cheap (about 10 for under 50p) and the pastries deliciously sticky.

We stayed for 7 nights so took advice from Renaud and Carole on attactions. They made arrangements for our trips for us - event when we paid the attraction directly. We had a wonderful time, would certainly recommend this Riad to our friends, and will hopefully return - Insha'Allah

Staying at Riad Laila was one of the highlights of our Morocco trip! The place is beautiful (especially the common area), and has a nice terrace / rooftop. The riad also gives you a wonderful traditional feel unlike any at a typical hotel.

The owners, Renaud and Carole, (as well as Renaud's father, Michel) were incredibly friendly, as were all of the staff. Renaud was especially helpful with trying to find us a desert tour, as well as explaining anything we needed at any time! He also let us change 2 days within our stay to accommodate a last-minute desert tour booking. Finally, he and his team normally serve dinner upon a morning request, but they created a special lamb dinner for us at a late request on a suddenly rainy night. Both Renaud and Carole worked just as hard as their team all day, ready to help guests with anything.

Moreover, the staff such as Brahim were unbelievably attentive. They went out of their way to smile and help with anything we needed! The breakfast was simple but tasty (crepes with jam and honey, with fresh OJ) and served with genuine smiles.

Overall, this was a terrific place to stay and we would recommend it to anyone looking for a very charming, hospitable, and traditional accommodation!

We stayed 2 nights in Riad Laila in the family suite with our 2 adult children in January and really enjoyed our stay. The Riad is beautifully decorated. Breakfasts on the terrace are wonderful. Renaud, met us at the medina walls and guided us to the riad

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights and it was close to perfection. The Riad is beautiful and the owners Carole and Renaud are friendly and helpful. We booked airport transfer with them and Renaud received us at the car. (It would have been difficult to find otherwise). Carole explained the dos and donts of Marrakech and gave great tips for things to do. We visited restaurants she suggested and a hammam and found them all good. But the best part is the spaces in the Riad. Beautiful garden to take meals in and a great living room to sit by the fire at night. They also have a friendly dog, a blind cat, and a curious turtle roaming about in the garden. This interesting menagerie made the stay all the more exciting. Lots of nice little birds to photograph as well in the garden. Having said all this, the only reason I give it 4 and not 5 is that our room was nothing special. If the room had been just a tad nicer, this would have been the best place I have ever stayed at. Not to say that it was not well serviced and equipped, but just that it was not visually appealing or nicely decorated. Having seen photos of other rooms, I think they do have pretty rooms. We probably had the bad luck of booking the least appealing one. But all in all, I would recommend this place to anyone. It was a great experience staying here.

Room Tip: Choose something other than Les Orangers Double Room

The owners and the staff were really very helpful and nice people. They got in touch with us couple of days after the booking was made asking if we need airport pick-up or have any special requirements. On the night of the arrival we were explained how to navigate around the city, how not to get into the common tourist traps and have most of our stay.

The riad itself and the room was very clean, quiet and safe with the aroma of neroli all around.

The only drawback we had was the mattress. It was extra firm and reduced sleep quality, as both of us are side sleepers.

Myself and my boyfriend checked out of Riad Laila yesterday and could not have been happier with our stay. We had booked the airport transfer and it was just so great to have somebody to pick you up and bring you to the riad, I would definitely reccomend it. We were greeted by a lovely woman who brought us to our room. Generous size and spotlessly clean.It opened out into a small patio with fountain which was a nice greeting everytime you opened the door. We had breakfast here each morning and it cannot be faulted, nor could the woman who served it. We aked for more coffee and it was absolutely no problem to her and she brought it straight away. We ate 2 dinners here and they were delicious. Huge portions and great value. We ate elsewhere on our last night and wished we had chosen to eat at the Riad. There was no pressure on us by staff to book any excursion, hammam etc but when we chose to do both they could not have been more helpful. It really did take all the stress away so we could just simply relax in this peaceful, beautiful place which I will definitely return to and reccomend to friends and family.
