We were so well taken care of when we dined at this Riad. We were welcomed by such friendly staff. They were incredibly cheerful and great fun throughout the evening. We were brought the most breath taking amount of delicious food- definitely one of the best meals of the holiday. The candle lit courtyard of this Riad was a stunning place to spend the evening, cannot recommend it enough!

We were a group of 8 girls looking for a place to stay for a week in Marrakech, not the easiest task for a bunch of indecisive people! We eventually and THANKFULLY stumbled across Riad Bel Haj and it was so much more than everything we expected. All of us loved it and Morocco would not have been the same in any other place. By the end of the week the Riad staff were more than just friendly people in uniforms, they were like family, and we miss their merry selves so much! We can never thank them enough. If we ever return to Marrakech, we know just the place to chill. Riad Bel Haj is an awesome, awesome cute and cosy place in the heart of the Old Medina.
Thanks to everyone who made our stay so special!

Room Tip: All rooms are awesome :D

Riad Bel Haj was stunning. We were greeted by friendly staff who took care of us throughout our stay. We ate here and Riad Adore, which I have to say were the best meals of the holiday. We were completely spoilt! Absolutley stunning riads, I can't recommend enough!

What a stunning place to visit. Such fantastic and attentive staff, forever smiling.
We arrived in the evening and found the villa to be so beautiful. We had dinner in the courtyard and could not believe how much food we managed to consume. The staff were so helpful and great to be around. The terrace overlooked so much of the city and was a fantastic place to have a glass of wine and unwind from a hectic day in the souks.

I would recommend this villa to everyone and anyone - it was absolutely fantastic!

We were recommended this riad by a friend and it was perfect. Beautifully decorated and friendly staff. Delicious food and perfect location. Couldn't fault it except the pool is tiny. If I visit Marrakech again I would definitely stay here again.

Yet another very enjoyable stay. The staff are still fantastic and caring. Will visit again. We also visited the beautiful Riad Adore and had most of our meals there as we were with a party of 44 people from London.

Room Tip: We stayed on the first floor where there are two rooms. Ours was delightful.

Having spent the last week in lovely Riad Bel Haj, I can highly recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in a perfectly positioned, charming riad in Marrakech, with the most attentive and caring staff you could wish for. You are steps away from the Souk and the Square, making it the perfect place to stay to explore this fascinating city. The friendly staff could not do enough to make our stay as comfortable as possible, and the rooms were spotlessly clean and beautifully furnished. On the roof terrace you can sunbathe or watch the sun go down while enjoying a glass of delicious chilled Moroccan rose, or have a dip in the pool in the pretty courtyard below. Despite being so central, the riad is quiet and peaceful - a little haven of tranquility to return to after the hustle and bustle of the Souk. I look forward to returning, and highly recommend it.
