“Absolutely amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2013

This place is the perfect place to stay if you are thinking about a trip to Marrakech. My boyfriend and I stayed here 5 nights and fell in love with it. The decor is beautiful and the staff are absolutely amazing. They are unbelievably helpful and on the second day in Marrakech my boyfriend proposed. The staff put together a lovely tray with rose petals, olives and wine and made the night even more incredible. Karen, Saeed, Mustafa and the girls (and not forgetting Max the cat) always went the extra mile and we HIGHLY recommend that you stay at this beautiful Riad.

We stayed at this Riad just for one night but we loved it. It immediately felt welcoming and quiet. A nice change from the hustle of the city! We arrived late in the evening and were welcomed with treats and had a cool swim in the (small - but effective) pool. I was quite sick, not unusual in Morocco, but they made me a tea drink that really helped and my partner enjoyed a big breakfast. They even helped us find accommodation for the following night as we booked late and they were full for the second evening. I would highly recommend this RIad for any length stay.

My Girlfriend and I stayed here for 2 nights towards the end of our stay in Morocco and we were so glad that we did.

After initially booking we were contacted by the owner asking if we needed airport transfers etc which we felt was nice and made us feel welcome.

Upon arrival we had a very warm welcome and instantly felt at home. The rooms were clean and beautifully decorated. We ate here both nights that we stayed and the food was exceptional.. Far better than the meals we had had in restaurants and very generous portions. The only thing I would suggest is that there is a little more lighting on the roof terrace for guests who decide to eat outside in the evening but this wasn't a problem.. I'm just a bit particular about lighting.. The rest of the riad was perfectly lit!

So highly recommended and 5*s from us!

This is without doubt one of the best places I have stayed in while on holiday!

The personal touch really makes this place stand out- I used my stay here to propose and from start to finish Karen and all of the other staff at the Riad were fantastic in helping me plan a day trip to the mountains, decorate our room with flowers, chocolate and champagne on our return and make evening dinner reservations. Mustafa, Saed and the two French ladies really made you feel welcome and I got the impression that no task or request was too much for them, at whatever time of the day!

Taxi pickup from the airport is free and arranged by Karen the owner before arrival. On arrival at the Riad, there is free mint tea and Moroccan pastries as well as a map and a guide of the city including directions to the main square (20 min walk) and attractions.

Breakfast was different every day and included various Moroccan pastries, cakes, breads, fruits and yogurts. We had so much each day that we didn't have lunch the entire week we were there. Eating up on the roof terrace as the sun was coming out really was a great start to the day.

The roof terrace is small but not limited and we enjoyed 2 afternoons relaxing on the sun loungers. Mustafa or Saed would happily continue to top up our cold drinks (beer and cocktails available) and provide us with some free nuts. The rooftop Jacuzzi was a great way to chill out after a few hours sunbathing and we even took our bottle of champers up here to enjoy!

Our stay in Marrakech was definitely enhanced through staying in this Riad. In a city where it can becoming tiring being hassled after a day in the square, this was the perfect retreat for a few hours of relaxation, where the magnificent staff catered for your every need, always with a smile!

Room Tip: We had Hiba room which was on the ground floor and although it can be nosier, we had absolutely no p...

We had a lovely stay in this quiet Riad in August. A driver came and picked us up at the airport around 2am and brought us directly to the Riad and we were able to check in seemlessly, despite our late arrival. The room was gorgeous, nicely decorated and with an amazing bathroom and it was peacefully quiet. We had a lovely breakfast with fresh orange juice and some rolls and jam. It was a convenient 15-20 minute walk from the Riad to the heart of the Central square which we were able to navigate pretty easily (using the map). The guys were very helpful with helping us arrange our itinerary, even booking us an afternoon cooking class and taking me to the local hamam for an authentic bathing experience (keep your underwear on, it was clean and quite adventure!!). We also had dinner on the roof top terrace one night and the beef with prunes and apricots was absolutely superb! My friend's chicken filo pie was also good. I think this would be a great spot for a couple, though it worked for friends as well. My only complaint is that the pool is really small and there is no space for sun lounging, so you should not plan a pool-side holiday here. The pool is only really for giving the courtyard another lovely addition.

Comfortably placed on the edge of busy Medina making it equally comfortable for getting to Jemaa-el-Fnaa or souks as well as catching taxi to drive to Menara, Gueliz or Hivernage. Staff was great. They kept trying to match our expectations by these little things that make your stay really nice. In response to our inquiries they offered freshly squeezed orange juice for breakfast or open bar with snacks in the evening. Good occasion to try home-like Morrocan cuisine to be served on a very nice roof terrace or guest room. Design of this riad is really great - a trully traditional Morrocan home experience packed with handmade Morrocan furniture and decors. Even though I stayed in much more posh places like Four Seasons before this was one of the best hotel experiences ever. Recommended!
