After the madness of the streets outside it was great to enter a relaxing atmosphere. Having breakfast on the roof terrace was a lovely way to start the day. We didn't have an evening meal there but we heard the meals were very good. We experienced the hotels hamman which was very vigorous.

The location is not as central as I had been lead to believe from Google maps, but Trip Advisor's map is accurate. Staff are friendly, breakfast is good and the rooms are immaculate and well decorated. Bathrooms are excellent. The only thing stopping me giving 5 stars is the misleading location and the staff could have offered a bit more in terms of what to do in town and guide prices for goods in the souks, etc.

We had a lovely time at Riad and all the reviews which referred to it as peaceful part of paradise were not over stating what we experienced during our first trip to Marrakech.

We had a very lovely time and Philippe and his your staff looked after us very well , particularly your Reception Manager and Abdul who went the extra mile in terms of making us feel very welcome and helping us to make the most of the city.

We ventured out a couple of nights and also chose to eat at the Riad and the food was wonderful.

Great location and easy to find use you get your bearings

I have just returned from Riad Mariana. It is a wonderful place. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff and we were very impressed by the delicious breakfast (local bread and pancakes, home made plum and fig compotes, fresh orange juice and nice coffee) and atmospheric evening meal. It was like living in your own secret palace behind the rose walls in this bustling city. The rooms are beautiful-polished surfaces and rugs everywhere, I have come home inspired to make my house like Road Mariana!

Due to work commitments, booking was a last minute thing. We trawled the internet and reviews guided us towards this haven of tranquility. All the previous reviews are accurate and we hope that this review reads as the same.

After being driven from the airport by taxi arranged by the Riad, we were warmly greeted on arrival and shown to our room followed by a walk through the rest of the Riad; we were not disappointed.

The 2 year renovation by Philippe and his team has resulted in the most perfect place to base yourself just 10 minutes away from the mayhem of the souks and main square, all of which was the most fantastic of experiences.

Craftmanship throughout was of an exacting nature and within keeping as were the various objects d'art.

Neither cluttered nor bare, the eye for detail was evident and was reflected by the roof terrace, palms by the plunge pool, service offered from the cuisine to the hamman and all things in between.

Our on-suite room was perfect, very cool and on the ground floor 10 steps from the plunge pool. Good quality, thick bath robes and towels, a firm and good quality queen sized bed was perfect for a restful night; the air con being quiet and controlled via a remote.

To summarise, Riad Mariana exceeded all expectations as did Marrakech itself. We had the most perfect holiday and will return in 2011.

There will be no need for us to investigate any other Riads, we have found our jewel in the sun.

Upon arrival in Marrakech, I was super overwhelmed... Instantly I felt welcomed and comfortable when I walked into Mariana. We had a room with 2 twin beds. The breakfasts and dinners we had were amazing - the best in Morocco so far. I have been in Morocco for 2 weeks and nothing has been as nice, clean and friendly. We just booked our last night in Marrakech back at Mariana :)

Also - the Riad helped us hire an English speaking guide to give us a tour of the monuments and souks. His name was Mohammad. We really liked him!
