“Awesome hotel!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2014 via mobile

I am writing this whilst waiting in the hotels lobby for a taxi to take me back to the airport and I am sad to be leaving. My girlfriend and I have had a lovely week here. Facilities at the hotel are perfect. Our room was large and clean with a well stocked fridge (soft drinks only).
The staff have been brilliant. They have helped us with restaurant bookings every night and given us plenty of advice on place to eat and visit. Nothing seems to be too much trouble for them.
The hotel is in a great location too. About a 10 minute walk from the old medina and souks and 10 minutes from the new medina as well.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anyone.

This hotel is absolutely wonderful! It is near enough so that you can walk to the Medina square / Souks but also the New Town (10 mins in either direction) but it is tranquil enough that it is a welcome break from the hustle and bustle when you get back!

We booked a deluxe hotel room which is very spacious with a balcony overlooking the pool. The room was clean, the bath was lovely and deep and the shower was powerful. There is also a fridge, hairdryer, larger TV with news channels and plenty of storage space.

The staff in the hotel are amazing - especially in Concierge. They guided us on restaurants and even helped when we decided upon an impromptu trip to Casablanca (they actually went and bought our train tickets from the station!). We are on our last full day here and we are thoroughly enjoying ourselves.

I have already recommended the hotel for my parents, am seriously wanting to come back again (and that isn't something I do with holidays preferring to try new places) and cannot recommend this hotel enough.

We stayed three nights at this hotel and it was amazing.
Our room was wonderfull, huge, beautifully decorated, with separated areas for the bathroom, really, really good. Great balcony with excelent pool view.
Breakfast was good but sometimes a little confused, since the hotel was full.
The pool is great, huge and was the perfect place to fresh up after all Marrakech heat.
The spa is very complete, but the gym a little small for the hotel standards.
The only thing the bothered me a little, was that I expected more trendy guests, more music by the pool, instead the hotel was full of families with a lot of children running and screaming everywhere. But I might had the wrong impression looking at their website.
That been said is a wonderfull hotel.

Room Tip: The diference from standard room rate to the suite was not so high. For us it was worth it, the roo...

We spent the last week in the naoura barrière marrakech and we really enjoyed our stay.
The hotel is very well located. The service is very good. The pool is very nice and quiet.
Our room in the 3rd floor was very beautiful and offered a nice view on the Koutoubia.

I'm a little tardy with this review of the Ryad Naoura Barreire from April 2014. Life and work dominate every minute. But, I digress. At first glance, Naoura Barreire's entrance portends of luxury and exclusivity, but, as the saying goes, a book cover does not a great novel make...or something along those lines. Upon entering, you are greeted by staff dressed in uniformed gowns in a smallish lobby, lounge area. In actuality, the hotel is not large, but it does have a boutique feel of understated luxury. The hotel is U shaped surrounding a large pool and deck space for lounging and eating. A breakfast buffet was included with my stay. As other reviewers have suggested, it is a very nice hotel, but not a luxury 5* hotel. The room I stayed in was clean and quite spacious with abundant storage space. The decor was moorish modern with a very comfortable bed. The bathroom and toilet were in separate rooms allowing for two people to have privacy when using either facility. The bath/shower was raised, requiring a step up and into the tub. The shower was recessed behind a wall that stopped at half the length of the tub as a shower barrier, but water still sprayed past the wall and inevitably wet the floor making it a possible hazard. Laying a towel on the step helped to absorb the water and reduce the hazard. All rooms have balconies overlooking the pool, hence the U shape of the hotel. The further away from the lobby/lounge area, the tranquility increases, but the walk to the room also increases.
The Ryad Naoura Barreire is within a ten minute walk to the Koutoubia mosque and the busy, labyrinthine medina.
All in all, I would recommend this hotel for all travel categories. The location is close to all the attractions. The staff is very accommodating and pleasant. The rooms are clean, comfortable and spacious. The food and drinks were very good. And the pool, front and centre, was large, cool and refreshing.
Enjoy your stay!

Room Tip: If possible, pick a room in the wings for less noise and a good view of the pool.

This hotel should have been 4 not 5 star but having said that, the kids loved the pool and the gym.

Rooms were ok and decent with a bit of modern touch.

Having breakfast which located outside can be a nightmare because of birds pinching foods and flies.

The temperature was about 50 degree and we probably spend half of our day in the pool. When we eventually ventured out it was good albeit during Ramadan.

You can walk to the main market and shopping district from the hotel but not for the faint hearted. You'll need plenty of cold water constantly.

Staff were ok at the reception but were good at the breakfast buffet.

This is a hotel that is ok but not good enough to be 5 star.

This hotel is located in the Medina and is very central to the Souk, Ketoubia and Mamounia hotel. My stay was very pleasent! The room was very spacious and decor is gorgeous. The cleaning ladies came 2 times a day so cleanliness was never an issue. The service was impeccable, everyone was very polite. The pool area is huge and gorgeous as well. There is free breakfast included with your stay, the croissants are always hot! Overall, my stay was amazing and I will 100% be reccomending this hotel.
