“HIDDEN GEM!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2013

Just got back from 9 day stay here! What a lovely, beautiful Riad in the middle of the medina.
Breakfast was lovely, free tea and coffee whenever you wanted.Only a ten min walk to the souks and night market.
What makes this Riad stands out is the staff!! Chouqui is an amazing individual, nothing was too much trouble. He arranged a 3 day trip for us to the sahara. Amazing trip and if you have time this is a must. One day we got up late and still they made us breakfast! Even 5* hotels don't offer this service. Missing you already Chouqui!! Can not wait to come back early next year!!

Anybody choosing this Riad has been very fortunate. It is great. You feel as if you are the most important person there is, nothing is too much trouble - need a restaurant late at night and nervous of getting lost. Not only will you be escorted there you will find someone waiting to take you back when you have finished.
The rooms are dark and quiet - can hardly hear the call to prayer - an advantage in the mornings. Breakfast when you want it. Always a smile and a joke. Can only give it 5 stars though it is probably worth more!

Recensione bilingue. Bilingual review
Sono stato al riad Plein Sud dal 23 al 25 ottobre 2013, per due notti, e vi dico subito che è strepitoso!!!
Oltre ad essere molto bello, è davvero un'oasi di pace e tranquillità. Esci dal tumulto di Marrakech ed entri in paradiso! Il silenzio è sovrano, relax e pace. L'ospitalità è eccellente.
Il gestore, il grande Choauki (Sciuki) è gentilissimo, super ospitale e divertentissimo.
Appena arrivi ti fa accomodare e ti serve il tradizionale tè alla menta marocchino, buonissimo e dissetante, insieme a dei dolcetti strepitosi.
Ti mette a tuo agio ed è sempre pronto a dare informazioni.
Ci ha procurato un amappa di Marrakech, ci ha disegnato mappe, era sempre pronto a venirci "in soccorso".
Ho apprezzato molto la pace del riad, che è bello e pulito.
Sono stato contento di aver scelto una struttura non proprio attaccata alla piazza principale: d'altronde la piazza è a dieci minuti, ma qui si gode maggiore relax.
Ve lo consiglio vivamente!!!

I was at the riad Plein Sud from the 23rd to the25th of October 2013 for two nights, and I tell you that is amazing!
In addition to being very beautiful, it really is an oasis of peace and tranquility. Exit from the tumult of Marrakech and enter into paradise! The silence is sovereign, relaxation and peace. The hospitality is excellent.
The manager, the great Choauki (Sciuki) is friendly, super hospitable and fun.
He suddenly offere to us the traditional Moroccan mint tea, delicious and refreshing, along with some sweets across.
It puts you at ease and is always ready to give information.
She got us a mappa of Marrakech, we drew maps, was always ready to come "to the rescue."
I really enjoyed the peace of the riad, which is nice and clean.
I was glad I did not own a structure attached to the main square: moreover the square is a ten minute, but here you can enjoy more relaxation.
I highly recommend it!

A very beautiful riad with lovely staff. Chouqui makes you feel comfortable and is always happy to help. We arrived very late and all the restaurants were closed but he called pizza hut to send over a pizza. He arranged our airport transfers and a trip to the atlas mountains. The riad is clean and only a three minute walk to the main gate of the medina which makes easy to get in and out. The souk is a ten minute walk. I would stay here again.

Just returned from a short stay and this is the 3rd Riad we have visited. Think the rave reviews are based on the service which is truly excellent. Shoukri is an absolute star and nothing is too much trouble, you have only to ask, he really goes the extra mile. But this a basic riad that, with a few low cost improvements, could be excellent. Get some toiletries for the rooms, jug of water, glasses, hair dryers etc, maybe even the rose petals! Promote the excellent food more and vary the breakfasts a little each day, some fruit and yoghurt would be welcome after the carb fest. The biggest issue for me was the terrace, I had eagerly anticipated breakfast in the warm so enjoyed on previous visits to Marrakech but this was met with surprise, hastily arranged no problem but all other guests ate downstairs. I got the impression that most guests use this riad to merely lay their heads and that's a shame, resulting in a lack of atmosphere. Use the terrace, fix the lighting and dead plants, get some better outdoor furniture and maybe a little soft music to help create a warm ambience and promote it as a place to eat and chill both morning and evening.

Traditional riad in the medina of Marrakech. Interesting interior with familiar Moroccan elements: lamps, tiles, greenery and a fountain in the courtyard. Wonderful staff. Breakfast is perfect: fresh orange juice, fresh pastries, great organic coffee, mint tea. It was the best hotel for the entire trip.

When we were searching inside the night medina for riad "Abla," I knocked on a door and asked for directions to it. The man took us to "Abla". He was a witness to how long time we spent there trying to open riad's closed door. After "Abla" manager " in rude manner refused to receive us (despite seeing our Booking.com reservation), it was him, our random guide who helped us. Fortunately, he was the manager of «Riad de plein Sud" named Shuki and agreed to shelter us for the night almost for the same price.
Riad itself inside looks pretty cute. There is even a swimming pool - just to the left from the reception desk. In my opinion the room we got was somewhat tight fit, but it was overlooking the pool. Besides this stylish enough furniture and interior furnishings make riad and rooms interior quite cozy. Breakfast (included in the price) was good.
From the riad it's close to the Majorelle Gardens, the Bab Doukkala (bus terminal and shared taxi (called in Morocco as grand taxi) parking, as well as to two supermarkets - "Aswak Assalam" and "Acima". Both work late in the night, and besides this, which is important, before 8:00 pm sell alcohol. However, beer is expensive in Morocco, especially in comparison with wine prices.
