“Peace and tranquillity in the heart of the old town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

We visited the Bellamane Ryad for our honeymoon for a week and it was absolutely calm and bliss. Our room, courtyard, roof and pool was authentic and charming. The staff were very attentive and always on hand to help with anything from food/drink orders to day excursions. The breakfast was delicious although a bit more variation from day-to-day would have been nice. The evening three-course meals were incredibly romantic set with rose petals and full waiter service - whether we asked to eat in the courtyard, by the pool or on the roof they would set up a table for us without hesitation. We felt a bit like the three course meal was the only evening option, but on one occasion they bent the rules for us and gave us a simple meal from the lunch menu when we didn't feel like a formal 2 hour meal. We felt our ground floor room was slightly overlooked by the rest of the Ryad which took a few days to accustom ourselves to, but it was beautifully adorned with lovely Moroccan artefacts and furnishings. Be prepared that any Ryad in Marrakech is likely to be in the old town and therefore you will be amongst the dusty narrow back streets filled with the hustle & bustle of the local community together with donkeys and stray cats on your doorstep! A ten minute walk through the local community can get the heart racing late at night to get back but we never once felt threatened and the tranquillity of the Ryad that awaited us was well worth it. We had an outstanding complimentary full body massage each and felt truly relaxed. Thank you Bellamane!

Room Tip: The ANTIQUAIRE room we had is the only one on the ground floor and thus is next to the kitchen and o...

We had an excellent time at the Bellamane, the staff (particularly Jemal) were incredible helpful and pandered to our every whim! The room was lovely (we stayed in the Design Suite which has a private terrace overlooking the pool). It's about a 20 minute walk away from the central square which was tough in the heat at times, however we enjoyed the fact that we got to see some "real life" rather than just the tourist areas. We had dinner in the hotel on the first night after arriving late and the food was great, it felt like a delicious but healthy meal you would get in a spa. The pool is lovely, very calm and empty (there was never anyone else in there). Thanks to everyone at the hotel for making our stay memorable!

We stayed for 3 nights on our honeymoon at the end of August. The Ryad organised a shuttle service to collect us (which is essential if it is your first time there as it is not easy to find). When we arrived after a very long, hot journey, we reached heaven... We could smell dinner waiting for us and saw a table waiting for us by the pool - it was one of the best meals we had during our entire 7 night stay in Marrakech / Essaouira. You'll pay European prices for the food and wine in the Ryad but it's well worth it.

Staff were really friendly and accommodating to our needs. I am coeliac and each morning was given fruit, yoghurt and omlettes which were delicious. Staff were always on hand to help or make us lovely food, snacks or cocktails! Their spoken English is very good but prepare yourselves with a little French beforehand just to make sure you are understood.

All in all, we had a wonderful time at Bellamane Ryad and spent hours lounging on the many different terraces and admiring the view from the roof. Bliss. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: We were shown all the rooms on arrival. We had booked the Berber Suite, but when we saw the Design r...

From the second we entered this beautiful riad we were struck by the total contrast between what we had just left behind and what greeted us; outside was mayhem and madness, inside calm and tranquility. The staff are lovely and couldn't do enough for us, the food is excellent, the pool and surroundings are wonderful and our room was comfortable and clean. I can recommend the massage too. The Bellamane is situated quite close to edge of the medina and so a fair walk to the centre, main square and souks. However, I highly recommend this place and would definitely go back.

I am ashamed to say that I rarely take the time to write reviews unless I have had particularly bad or exceptionally good service, but it is definitely true to say that at the bellamane, we received the latter! It is a beautiful, tranquil little oasis in the middle of the madness that is Marrakech, run by people who genuinely care and want to provide you with the best experience possible. We spent a very peaceful few days in the riad sunbathing and taking advantage of massages and the gorgeous pool, and came home feeling entirely relaxed. Meals were cooked to perfection and service was always offered with a smile. There were no eating times to adhere to, the staff made meals to order and made so much effort with the setting, it was just beautiful. Location-wise, there was a bit of a walk to the square and the riad was a little difficult to find when returning at night, but is so beautiful it more than makes up for this inside! I would recommend the Bellamane to anyone travelling to Marrakech. We couldn't fault it!

We were lucky to have a whole hotel for ourselves. It is a really nice small Ryad with a really fascinating rooms. It has a small swimming pool, a nice terrace and wonderful view.
The dinner at the hotel was delicious, I should highly recommend it.

I never write reviews, but for the bellamane I will make a exception. The kindness and attentiveness of Stephane's staff, the superb chef, are all absolutely top notch. I wish I could eat as well as we did every day. The food is Amazing!
As soon as we got out the taxi, in the midst of the medina, we were a bit lost for words - it's Marrakech and bustling, which we expected, but once the doors opened to the bellamane it was like stepping into another dimension all together. So peaceful and the interiors are so beautiful. Its almost like staying in someone's home.
I feel like we've made great friends with the owner Stephane, he even organised a tasting of Moroccan foods (we're planning our wedding) and suggesting all sorts of things. He's great for ideas! :)
We'll definitely return. The bellamane made our week of wedding planning absolutely memorable.
Thank you all! And see you again. :)
