“A magnificent Marrakech experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2014

Our first time in Morocco and Marrakech and after travelling all day we arrived at our accommodation and what a most amazing and brilliant surprise. We hadn't imagined such a beautiful and yet authentic stay. Our stay was absolutely flawless. Our room was beautiful (the rose petals wishing the honeymooners a welcome was a nice touch), the welcome with mint tea by professional and friendly staff and thoughtfully arranging dinner for the tired guests was all beyond any expectation. Breakfast and dinners on the terrace and the personalised care by the staff was hard to say goodbye too. The manager, Karine, runs an exceptional Riad and should be proud of all her hard work and the attention to detail by her staff. We would most, most, most highly recommend a stay with Karine and her staff.

Room Tip: If we could give a higher rating we would. My new wife says it was our oasis and it was.

Although we only stayed one day, we had exceptional service. Upon arrival, we were served mint tea and Moroccan pastries while being informed of local sites, recommendations, and an overall introduction to Marrakech. The riad provided us an upgrade, a map to the city with all the major sites highlighted w itinerary, and a full tour of the riad. It was beautiful and clean. Location was ideal as it was near Cafe Arabe and close to the souks that we enjoyed most.

Thank you for your kind review about your recent stay at Riad Idra.
It was a pleasure to welcome you in our “house” for one night and to inform you about the “must do” in Marrakech.
I’m sure there still many places you haven’t seen yet and so we look forward to your next and longer stay with us ;) .

This luxury accommodation satisfies all the basic requirements - good location, helpful staff, calm atmosphere, clean well designed rooms and a sumptuous breakfast. The manager is specially welcoming. Spent five nights here and were very happy with this choice out of more then 400 available riads in Marrakech.

Room Tip: All good but preferred the first floor.

We have just returned after staying 6 nights at the Riad Idra. All the reviews we read prior to going are so true. From the moment we transferred from the airport we were treated so warmly. The staff are excellent and couldn't do enough for us. The room was perfect. Both my daughter and I had a hammam and massage which we both enjoyed. Karine assisted in organising 2 very different experiences for us to see, the desert and the mountains. Both trips we highly recommend. The food really nice and plentiful. The Riad is situated close to the souk but is very tranquil and as said before all we could hear were birds.
A big thank you to Karine and her very special staff.
Fay and Julia.

Dear Fay, dear Julia,

Thank you very much for recommending Riad Idra on Trip Advisor.
I’m pleased that all the experiences you had in Marrakech were delightful, the rock desert and the Ouirgane Valley in the Atlas mountains are very different, a chance you could see both.
We ( including the birds :) ) look forward to your next stay at Idra’s house.

Warm regards,

Karine and the team

What to say and where to start…
The experience in Riad IDRA has been amazing.
Everything was perfect for me and my girlfriend.
The location first: very close to the souk but also very calm and quiet once in the Riad – we could only hear the birds singing.
The food : breakfast was very good – especially the yoghurt which was out of this world – We had dinner twice and it was excellent – I can’t forget the couscous Royal!!
My girlfriend had the massage with Hanane and she came back fully relaxed and smelling good orange blossoms.
The setting, the staff, the food – everything was so peaceful and romantic that I planned to propose to my girlfriend at the RIAD.
Karine and the staff were very helpful and carried out the plan with absolute professionalism and discretion.
On the day of the proposal and after a wonderful evening at La Pause nested into the Agafay hills in the Marrakesh desert where we had wonderful tagines in a very romantic setting where we could admire an exceptional sunset, we headed back to the RIAD.
When my girlfriend opened the door of her suite, she could see rose petals on the bed forming the letters “Will you marry me?” and on top of that 2 criss-cross hearts.
There were candles and bunch of red roses everywhere.
My girlfriend was first shocked and surprised as she didn’t expect it at all – We were still wearing our swimsuit under our jeans when we came back from La Pause…
But the lights from the candles, the perfume from the flower and the rose petals worked all together as a perfect combination for a romantic proposal-
She was deeply moved and had tears of joy in her eyes when she said YES!!
I could not thank enough all staff members from RIAD IDRA for this unforgettable moment – it was pure magic!
Thank you Karine, Omar, Redouane, Hanane, Salah and Hicham for making this whole journey a privileged moment.

We recently stayed at the Riad Idra for 2 nights and it was a wonderful stay. From the minute we arrived we were given a very warm welcome and the staff couldn't have done any more for us. Nothing was too much of a problem for them and everything in the room was just perfect. We had a hammam after a frenetic day shopping and the girls there were very professional and it was just what we needed to revive us for the evening. We would highly recommend this hotel and would have no hesitation going back next time we are in Marrakech

We stayed for 3 nights at Riad Idra. It is very close to the Main Square and the Souks and very convenient to explore the city. Dar El Bacha, the street on which the lane leading to the Riad is located, is closed to cars and larger traffic and hence the Riad is very quiet though it is quite centrally located. The Riad has 7 rooms all very tastefully finished and furnished. The central courtyard with a water feature and plants makes the whole place much cooler even when it is quite warm outside. The rooms have tall ceilings, large bathrooms, built-in closets and locker.

People working at the Riad were very very friendly and helpful, often going out of their way to ensure we are satisfied. Breakfasts (were included with our room reservation) were quite elaborate, everything was baked in-house and tasty - it is a big meal by itself. We also had couple of dinners at the Riad which were also very tasty. Karine, the manager was great. Omar, the main person in charge of food service was excellent. When we told him that we liked Moroccan cookies, he bought a variety of them from a store near his house which is supposed to be very good - considering that he is at the Riad at 7 AM to serve breakfast and leaves at around 10:30 PM after serving dinner, he really went out of the way to make sure we got what we wanted.

We also enjoyed Hammam and the Massage on the last day of our stay.

Overall, it was a wonderful experience and would highly recommend it.

Dear Ravikumar,

Thank you for having taken the time to share your experience at Riad Idra on Trip Advisor.
In fact, the Riad is very well located, very near to the Palace Dar el Bacha and the antic’s shops, at 10 minutes by walk to the main square.
We are glad you’ve appreciated the service provided by our team and the comfort of our rooms.
We hope we’ll have the pleasure to welcome you and your family a second time in our “house”.

All the best,

Karine and the team
