“Perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2013

Our stay at Riad Flam made our 5 day visit to MarraKech perfect. After walking along the very narrow streets of the old part of town we arrived at this most beautiful guesthouse. On arriving we were taken to to the roof top veranda where we were offered delicious mint tea and very good cookies, and shown around the house after.
Attention has been paid to every little detail (we are including some photos) so the great overall feeling is one of comfort, beauty and quality - not to forget wellness! The owner, mme Flam, is also trained in different types of massage methods and on the ground floor of the riad is a hammam, as beautiful as the rest of the house, where she gave us traditional hammam treatment together with gommage! Our skin was like a baby´s bottom afterwards.
Our bed was very good and the bed linen of good quality cotton; heaven to sleep in.
We had dinner twice at the house (let them know beforehand) and had the most delicious home cooked meals; best ones we had in Marrakech.
Mme Flam and her staff were extremely nice and they also arranged for us a good trip into the Atlas mountains, with a guide in a good car. Also for a birthday dinner at a popular restaurant and transportation. We forgot to call them on arrival to Marrakech, but it is necessary as they come and escort you to the house; taxes can not drive you all the way.
It must be a good place to stay at, when you don´t really want to leave - and that is how we felt. Hope to see you again, mme Flam and staff!

Possibly one of the best places I have ever stayed in and will stay in, in the world. The moment you step through the door, the accomodation offers a real wow factor. Each room is unique and beautiful. The service is 24/7 and utterly charming with numerous members of staff waiting on your every need. There was so many aspects to enjoy - the massage, the food, the decor, the hot tub, jacuzzi, sun beds, bar...even the house pets! Very relaxing and somewhere I would definitely recommend. A short walk outside and you are in the hustle and bustle of the vibrant city experiencing the souks, motorbikes and plethora of sparkling shoes and lanterns. A group of 15 of us stayed for quite a riotous two nights and were very looked after by the patient staff!

15 of us as a work incentive descended on Riad Flam on Friday evening and left yesterday on Sunday morning. In the run up to arriving, the staff were so helpful on email , they arranged transfers and dinner on our arrival. Dinner was fantastic. The place is a Den of tranquility and having planned our Friday night out of the Riad quickly changed our minds to stay in and enjoy the facilities on arrival. That we definately did. The staff could not do enough for us all. The massage by the owner is outstanding. The Riad's attention to detail is spectacular. The cocktails are great, the breakfasts delicious. They will organise whatever you need, our Medina tour was a great afternoon out to witness the all encompassing sights and smells of the heart of Marrakech. The real fire alight having dinner was pretty special. If you have a chance to stay here, without hestitation you should, you will not be disappointed. I will definately be back for some R&R.

Room Tip: All the Double rooms are great and have their own uniqueness.

I selected Riad Flam from the feedback and reviews on this website - many people commented on how beautifully clean and peaceful this Riad was in Marrakech....how good the food was, how relaxing the day spa, how perfect the location. After staying three days in the Crystal Suite, each and every promise was fulfilled! Congratulations to Flam and her attentive team of staff.
I could highly recommend this Riad - its simply beautiful!

Room Tip: Base priced rooms are small, I recommend you select a room 14 square meters plus on the first floor.

Nothing was too much trouble for the staff here. I have stayed in many hotels around the world and this is up there with the best.

Facilities are great and food was amazing. A true oasis away from the hustle

Just got back from Morocco - we stayed at this Riad for 3 nights after trekking in the Atlas mountains for 4 days. I would definitely recommend it as a great place to stay. The location is perfect - less than 10 minutes to the main square & the riad itself is stunning and very relaxing. Defintely the perfect place to retreat to after the mayhem of the souks! The riad was also very good at responding to emails / questions prior to our arrival which was very helpful. We tried the hammam there which I would recommend as it leaves you feeling super clean! Many thanks to Abdul, Madame Flam & all the rest of the staff for making our stay so enjoyable:)

Some friends and I recently stayed at Riad Flam and it is a beautiful and tranquil place. It is on the edge of the main area but still very close to the center square and it was great to stay away from the craziness and retreat back here. Upon arrival we were greeted and given some lovely mint tea and Moroccan biscuits while doing our paperwork. The Rooms were lovely as is the entire riad with a very nice outdoor area that we enjoyed sitting in for the afternoon reading our books and drinking mojitos after we had had treatments at the onsite spa facilities.

The food is lovely and the breakfasts were divine. We had dinner at the rooftop terrace one night and it was a beautiful lamb, prune and almond Tagine that was to die for.

The only difficult thing about Riad Flam is that the owner only speaks french so while trying to check out we were unable to communicate so had to wait for the other gentleman who spoke English to come back so that we could do all the paperwork but we had also had problems communicating with her at other times.

Other than that I would highly recommend Riad Flam as a great place to stay.
