“A welcome oasis with wonderful staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2011

I took my husband here for his 50th birthday. We left the peaceful countryside of France and arrived in this mad, bustling, colourful city at 9am. The hotel had arranged a taxi for us who took us right to the door, a very friendly chap who pointed out all the sights on the way. We received the most warmest of welcomes at the Riad, where we were given tea and a plate of cakes/biscuits whilst we filled out the necessary forms and waited for our room to be cleaned. Our room was spotless, very authentically decorated and overlooked the central internal courtyard. All the staff were extremely pleasant and helpful at all times, and even on our very early morning of departure, someone got up early to provide us with breakfast, and their usual taxi guy wasn't available so the riad owner took us to the airport himself. The roof terrace was a lovely area to sit and read or chat, and the communal rooms were very welcoming and well maintained. On the last evening there was a dancing/music/meal event. The staff spent all afternoon preparing the courtyard with lovely table linen, candles and rose petals. It was so romantic and they put so much care and attention in to it. The evening was attended by 8 of us in total, plus the staff. It was a wonderful night of traditional music, belly-dancing and local food. It was a perfect end to our trip; my husband even had a go at belly-dancing! We would definitely return to this riad and recommend it to anyone.

this Riad is in a middle of Medina, but very quite and peaceful when you are inside. It is also very close (10-15 minutes walk) to busiest square Djemaa el Fna, Bahia Palace and Palais Dar Si Said.
Room was middle size, but very clean and comfortable.All rooms are different in decoration, but with taste and in a Moroccan style.
Staff was very friendly and helpful. They served best coffee I every tried in any hotel. They provided transfer to/from hotel to the airport (we requested that when we booked a room), and also took us to the main bus station early one morning when we wanted to go to Essaouira..
I would highly recommend this Riad.

We spent two nights here on our road trip through morocco. This riad has been one of the best experiences or our trip.

We had the rooms spacious orange, and deluxe Kenza, which was an upgrade, as we had booked standard rooms. Both rooms were very nice, especially the deluxe, with very nice bath rooms and seperate toilets. Both wer very clean.

The breakfast is simple, but very nice, consisting of yoghurt, cake, fresh fruits, breads and jams. Staff is very good, and goes out of their way to help you. The first day we had dinner in the dining room, and when we asked if it was possible to set up everything on the patio or on the roof terrace the next morning in order to have breakfast outdoor, it was no problem. During the day, tea and coffee are for free.

Very nice roof terrace to relax in the sun. And you are only a couple of minutes away from the main square. Only negative point is the mosque next door, so you're awake every morning at 5a.m., but that's the same all over marrakech, so no big deal.

We would definately stay again in Riad Dama.

  • Liked — location, decoration, feeling like you're in your own house
  • Disliked — the mosque nextdoors
