We stayed in Riad Chayma for seven nights and didn't want to leave. We felt extremely well looked after by the wonderful staff all the way through the trip. The riad itself is a lovely place to relax after a busy day getting lost in the medina, and our room (Deluxe Bougainvillea) was spacious and comfortable. The dinner we had on the first night was delicious, so much so that we opted to have dinner there again another night. I wish I had dined at the riad even more during our stay, as those were some of the best meals we had in Marrakech! It was also very reasonably priced considering we had the terrace to ourselves that evening.
I was really glad we picked Riad Chayma as the location was perfect - easy access to the souks and Jemaa el-Fna but also walking distance to Gueliz which has a lot of restaurants/cafes and a nice contrast from the medina. Trust me, being a little bit removed from the main square is a good thing! The street outside the riad is great because it is mainly locals rather than tourists, so when you walk back in the evening you can just blend in and not get any hassle as you may encounter in the main souks!
The riad itself is beautiful and relaxing, but the thing that really makes it stand out is the staff. You get a really personalised experience as you can ask Shareef and Adil literally anything about Marrakech and they will do their best to help you. We really enjoyed chatting to both of them and finding out about Morroccan life, and we always felt at ease and looked after during our stay. Aziz took us to and from the airport and also on the Atlas Mountains tour, which was an unforgettable experience and was made all the more special by Aziz, who we are really glad to have met.
Overall, Riad Chayma is a five star experience with fantastic staff and great attention to detail. We are already planning our next trip as we can't wait to come back!
