“Just Perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

I came with my family ...a group of seven all up.
We were so overwhelmed with the hospitality, advice and genuine interest in the variety of requests we made...nothing was too hard in pleasing us.
Iman, Faisel and their team were attentive to our every need including walking us to and from dinner ( so we wouldn't lose our way) in the amazing Medina.
The rooms are fabulous and the riad with it's rooftop lounges and hammam is a true oasis to come back to after a day's touring.
They also assisted in the planning of the rest of our Morocco tour to the desert and sea.
All in all a wonderful venue which did it all for us...and more.
Just loved the place!!

Room Tip: First floor rooms are great to keep away from jests who may be entertaining at ground level.

My husband and I visited the riad for a week during the summer. From the minute we arrived, we were well looked after. The riad is within a residential area along narrow lanes (which cars can't drive down) so we were met at the taxi and guided to the riad.

The manager arranged for a guide to show us the local area on the first morning which was really helpful for getting to know the medina and how to navigate through the souks.

The riad had a small pool which was lovely for a quick dip after a long day out in the heat. We spent some time by the pool most days for some relief from the hot summer sun!

The manager recommended shops and fantastic restaurants and made bookings for us at busy places.

We ate in the riad on two evenings. We were given local specialities which were delicious.

Throughout our stay, all of the staff were really helpful and made us feel very welcome. I would definitely recommend this riad.

My wife and I stayed for 3 nights in October. Everything from the airport pickup to airport drop-off was perfect. Zamzam is a wonderful retreat from the hustle and bustle of the surrounding streets, our room was very comfortable and we enjoyed sitting on the roof terrace. The staff at ZamZam are exceptional, nothing was too much trouble. other hoteliers i have met could really learn from these people. I would highly recommend zamzam.

Thank you so much for the wonderful review. We work really hard at Zamzam to look after guests as we also realise the Medina can be a little daunting and we want people to really enjoy the magic of it whilst feeling supported. We really appreciate guests taking the time to give us their feedback. Thank you again this helps our wonderful team so much. Emma - Owner

Our experience at Zam Zam exceeded all expectations. After meandering through the old streets of the Medina, we were ushered into this paradise and met with the wonderful staff who just couldn't do enough for us. No matter what we needed or wanted (and we could be a needy and wanty group at times!) they were always one step ahead, offering us lifts, advice or a hand and always with a very real and genuine smile. By the time we left, we really felt part of the Zamzam family and a part of Marrakech.

Our party had a great time at the Zam Zam Riad - it is beautifully appointed with efficient and friendly staff who made our stay very enjoyable. I would recommend having a Hammam and massage at the Riad which is great way of spending an afternoon!

Room Tip: All the rooms are beautiful but pick one on the ground floor if you aren't too mobile or very ta...

Lovely Riad, clean and quite (except morning and evening pray) considering its location. The rooms were spacious, comfortable and well attended so had a wonderful sleep every time. The friendly staff were brilliantly attentive and always keen to help out.
The food at the Riad was excellent every time and at every course, the staff even managed to cater for the fact i'm a coelliac and pescitarian. The foods could be eaten in the calm cool courtyard out of the sun or if not too hot up on the rooftop looking out over Marrakech.
The yoga took place in the riad's courtyard, bliss with the enormous palm tree and trickling water pool. And after a stimulating session, the deep tissue massage to loosen the muscles was excellent.
On the whole Zamzam is a great place to chill out and experience a little of Morocco; first class.

Zamzam never disappoints me and a fantastic start to the beach retreat. Started with a relax, haman and excellent food, comfy bed and long nights sleep. Headed to the beach with lunch at a trendy restaurant and then beach walk to first nights camp. Unbelievable how quickly you are away from the hussle and bustle to fantastic views from the cliffs and secluded beaches and coves. Luxury camping which felt like zamzam but on the beach, the same high quality of food and bedding! Days filled with walking, yoga and massages, evenings relaxed with gorgeous morrocan food, music and camp fires. A few days felt like a complete recharge of the mind and body which normally takes a week. Back to Zamzam for more yoga, cooking classes and anything which you want, nothing too much effort and always high class. Perfect.

Room Tip: All rooms are lovely favourite is Rose suite for its bath and shower and ground floor location.
