“Tranquil Riad - Perfect in every way.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2013

If you're looking for an Riad close to the busy, and vibrant area of the Marrakesh medina, the Green Mango is your oasis. This small and beautiful Riad has every thing you'd want. Quiet, peaceful, beautiful, great service, perfect location, and delicious food. All the rooms, including the the 4 bedrooms are tastefully decorated and provide a relaxing ambiance.

The owners, Sabastian and Sarah will do anything for you to make your stay as stress free and comfortable as possible, including escorted familiarization walks to the medina to help get our bearings set. Upon check in, Sabastian gave us his cell phone number with invitation to call anytime 24 hours for any assistance we might need. His staff, was attentive and willing to help us with any our needs.

I would highly recommend the Green Mango to anyone interested in a small, quite, peaceful Riad only minutes walk from the hectic medina.

Nothing we had read even comes close to describing our experience at the Green Mango!
Paradise in a small, beautiful, perfectly balaced ,beautifully put together oasis in the craziness that is the medina in MARRAKECK!
Sebastian and sara the most wonderful, attentive, knowledgeble and gracious hosts who let us have the run of the Riad as we were a party of 8 and so took over all 4 rooms.
The rooms , fabulous in their decor and attention to detail made it an authentic stay! From the beautiful sunken baths to extremly comfortable beds to beautiful accessories! Simple but Taseful!
The Hammam, small but effective!!!! a wondeful 'day in' was had by the husbands while he ladies shopped ! A perfect finish to a perfect weekend for all the ladies as well!
The food..... well breakfasts for kings, lunch for queens and dinners .......well I'm lost for word!!!
The cook was superb and we eagerly await the 'Green Mango cookbook'!!! Nothing was too much trouble for her!
The staff, fathy, raidda , nothing was too much for them!!!! running up and down 3 flighs of stairs and staying up to let us in at 3-4 in the morning!!! And everyhing done with a big smile, day or night!! Great guides to the medina too!
Sebastian, a fabulous host with a great passion for good music, fabulous customer service and care. His words are 'it can be done' to almost all requests!!!! He helps you book great tables at fantastic restaurants and takes you shopping to the great places in marrakech that cannot be found on any websites!
Lastly ,the location of the riad allows you to experience the day to day living of the locals !!! the hustle and bustle, the shaing of the road with people, bikes, scooters, donkey carts and horse carraiges! the local spice shops , fruit and veg, butchers where locals buy their foods and lots of little shops selling street food!!! A different experience each time you step out!
Thank you all at Riad Green Mango and we hope tha our return to 'Nirvana' is not too far away!

I stayed at the Riad Green Mango for seven nights recently. The only word I can use is FABULOUS. Sebastian and Sarah (the owners) are wonderful. Nothing is too much trouble, they are very helpful but unobtrusive - they just make sure everything happens as it should. The ambience is totally relaxing, even down to Sebastian's own chilled music choice. Our room was amazing and we got to see around all the others which were equally cool. The staff were brilliant, often walking us to restaurants that otherwise we may have struggled to find. I will definitely stay at this riad next time I visit Marrakech. The area is within easy walking distance of the Square, the Souks and a plentiful choice of good restaurants. One suggestion, on arrival, take advantage of the escorted transfer directly to the riad through Sebastian. 5* :)

I did a lot of research to choose the perfect Riad in Marrakech and if you are reading this review you will know just how many excellent options there are to pick from.

I can honestly say this Riad was exceptional in every way. Step out of the hustle and bustle of the busy medina straight into a tranquil oasis.

On arrival we were greeted by Sebastian and his staff who genuinely are interested in ensuring your stay is the best it can be. The Riad is so beautiful, I viewed every room and in my option no room is better than the other, each has its own personality.

On one of my days I was enjoying the ambience so much I did not even leave the Riad. I sunbathed on the beautiful roof terrace cooling down in the Jacuzzi. Enjoyed an afternoon massage in their spa and was served the most delicious evening meal up on the terrace that night. The food here was the best I enjoyed in Marrakech, the attention to detail and crockery were a very high standard. Candles were always lit through out the Riad creating the perfect atmosphere.

The walk to the square takes 7-10 hassle free minutes, along the way you get a real feel for the medina and the workings of its everyday life.

Sebastian has exceptional taste in music and as such the Riad feels alive, ambient music is played all day. This is the ultimate Riad experience.

Room Tip: There are four rooms and each of them are beautiful. They are all 5 star with a very luxurious finis...

We love the atmosphere, the welcome and stay. The owners are a young couple of lovers of travel and it can also be appreciated in the details of this Riad.
Care and attention at all times, I would recommend booking a delicious dinner!
All is harmony, relaxation (which you can also enjoy in the jacuzzi overlooking the rooftops of the Medina!) and perfumes...
Last but not least the possibility to book a massage with a choice of Argan oil with different fragrances ...

We've just stayed 3 nights at the Riad and had the most fabulous time!

The Riad itself is an absolute gem and has been totally refurbished from top to bottom with exquisite taste mixing boutique style with Moroccan touches. All the different bedrooms have their own personality and the common spaces - be it in the patio or the roof terrace make you want to stay in the Riad rather than face the hustle & bustle of the souk.

In terms of service, I have to say top notch and genuinely one of the best service I’ve had in a long time! Marie & Francois (the owner’s parents) were fabulous – welcoming us warmly on arrival with a traditional mint tea, giving us great tips & drawing maps so we wouldn’t get lost in the labyrinth of the Medina, helping us book restaurants and taxis so that we didn’t worry about a thing. I can’t speak more highly of them as they were both present when we needed help & advice but also very discreet which meant that we had a great romantic break without having the feeling that there was always someone around which for me is the perfect combination!

The rooms are all fantastic! When we arrived all the rooms were empty so Francois and Marie took us for a little tour and I have to say that all the rooms are stunning and all have their unique individual style & design which adds to the quirkiness of the Riad.

The roof terrace & outdoor Jacuzzi are pure heaven and we loved having breakfast in the sunshine overlooking all the roofs of Marrakesh.

We’ve even experienced the new spa which they have recently built and had a couple’s hamman and massage. Again, couldn’t fault a thing – my skin was so soft after the hamman and the massage was probably one of the best I’ve had!
I would have loved to stay longer and fully intend to come back!

Marie, Francois, Greg and everyone at the Riad – thank you ever so much for your kindness and for looking after us so well. You’ve truly made our holiday special!

The most beautiful, idyllic little hideaway I have ever had the pleasure of staying at. Tucked away within the busy, bustling streets of the Medina, this stunning, serene and calm riad lies just waiting to greet you warmly and wrap it's arms around.
This has a real family feel to it as Sebastien (the owner) his wife Sara and his Parents run the riad together which really makes you feel part of it all and truly welcome and looked after.
The whole place is immaculate from top to bottom with breathtaking decor and architecture all hand crafted and selected to make for a traditional and elegant Moroccan feel.
Myself and two girlfriends stayed in three different suites which were all uniquely decorated to the highest of standard with fresh linen, dressing gowns and slippers and fluffy white bath towels laid out each day.
Everything was spotless and completely clean, nothing was too much effort, all of the staff at the riad are very hard working and so friendly. We were even given a guide to escort us to the main square upon our first night so we did not get lost. We felt very safe.
The chef is honestly amazing, we sampled breakfasts each day which were huge and varied and served elegantly.
On one night we decided to skip the bustling square's food markets for a cosy candlelit night at the riad and we are very glad we did, we had the chance to sample some beautiful Moroccan dishes including the famous pastilla which blew our minds.
From being tucked away in the snug drinking mint tea under the soft lights to sunbathing on the flowery, sunny roof terrace and relaxing in the dipping pool / hot tub there is always something lovely to do here. We were advised and assisted with our travels and tours and given some handy advice which we are glad we received as it made for an excellent trip.
We trip some Hamam and Massage treatments at Sara's spa which were just perfect, true relaxation and zen with some gorgeous argan oils.
Not only would I reccommend this riad I will definitely be going back again, it really is a rare and special treasure. Thank you Green Mango. Wishing you a prosperous and happy future.

Room Tip: In all honesty each room we saw was absolutely perfect and of a similar size and standard, you liter...
