“Wonderful Clean Riad, right in the middle on the action”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

Situatted only 2 turns from the main chaotic square in Marrakech, this is a very well situated Riad. My excellent rating is based on the friendliness of Aziz and Monique, the great air conditioning and the how clean the place was.

We spent 3 nights here, during the hottest possible days (45-50 deg C), and had a great air conditioned room to stay in (rm 5 - the suite I believe). At that point my wife wasn't digging Moroccan food (I wasn't either), and the Riad was nice enough to make us some meals that were not a tangine or kafta - and were delicious as well. We were the only ones there 2 of the nights in the whole Riad, largely because it's a relatively new place, so word of mouth hadn't travelled too fast. Breakfast here was great, and had more food than we could possibly eat. Everything that we at here (3 breakfasts / 3 dinners) were great.

Worth mentioning for English speaking travelers, Aziz is the only one who is fluent english speaker (he's there on the night shift - likely when you'd be there), so you might need a bit of french to communicate with the other staff and owners.

Another item is that our room didn't have a TV. Usually not a big deal when traveling, but when it's 50 degrees you stay in, and didn't have much to do unless we stayed in the communal area which had only 1 TV. One weird / awkard thing about sharing a TV, is do you ask the owners / hosts if you can watch TV if they are. They have free Wifi, but the we couldn't get great reception out of the room, so we'd go down into the common areas. This would generally not be an issue, but with the outside temperature, us Canadian's hid in our ice cold room.

The rooftop jaccuzi was being fixed while we were there, which would have been a nice to have, but given the heat, no big deal.

So overall a very nice place to stay, and on a quiet street right in the action. Can't expect much more than this.

I stayed in the Riad Mirage with a friend and her daughter in June. From the moment we arrived we felt so welcomed there. We had two rooms and each were beautiful and looked exactly like the pictures on the website. Monique (owner) said we should treat the Mirage like our home - and it really felt like it.
They prepared beef kofta for us and it was by far the best kofta we had during the whole week in Morocco. For our schedule we had a rest afternoon before starting our tour and got massages and my friend did a hammam. The massage was very reasonably priced and it felt amazing. It was a wonderful start to our trip.
In the evening Monique's husband took us to a restaurant surrounding the market area and it was great and had a beautiful view of the shopping area. (less than a 10 minute walk from the riad) He also came back to pick us up - very nice!
We then stayed up late into the night and learned about Moroccan culture from Aziz. He was very nice and we had a fun conversation.
Our clocks never adjusted right so we were late waking up but everyone was really nice and they waited to serve us breakfast. This again was another wonderful meal. I really loved the crepes.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone because it is a nice hotel with very welcoming owners and staff.

We were in Marrakech for two nights and I can't say enough about the owners of the hotel. They were kind, helpful, and did everything they could to make our stay pleasant. I was sick on the day we were heading out to the coast and they arranged comfortable transport for us when it was clear I couldn't take the bus. The riad itself is exquisite. The rooms are beautifully decorated with every attention to detail. Each room has a place to sit as well as a bed. Each room has an outside table and chairs, and , of course, there's the rooftop deck where you can enjoy the plunge pool or simply eat dinner in an oasis of quiet and peace. Everyone who works there is kind and helpful. This is a place not to be missed!

Excellent and helpful staff. Brilliant traditional Moroccan decor. The rooms the roof top garden and spa the courtyard are all great. The little touches set this Riad apart. You will not regret your stay here. A little more expensive than some Riad's but worth every cent. Great value

Room Tip: From what we could see they are all good

This place really should be called an oasis! It's a beautifully decorated, cool, clean, calm, and comfortable riad in the middle of marrakech. Perfectly located just off the square but not too far that you could get lost- it's gorgeous and the staff is so friendly. We played charades with the French speaking staff and talked late into the night with the English speaking staff- everyone was extremely helpful, friendly, and hospitable. And the place was gorgeous- well decorated, great linens, showers with hot water AND water pressure, down pillows, great meals cooked daily of your choosing, and beer and wine to enjoy on the roof terrace. They even thought of straw hats to wear when sunbathing on the terrace. It's a really beautiful place with wonderful people.

This Riad was amazing with awesome service and amazing rooms! The owners have done an amazing job of decorating the rooms and made us all feel like we were at home and relaxed. My brother and I had a room which was decorated to be like a Zebra room, and we were amazed at how much detail there was in this amazing and creative room. The terrace was very comfy and my family and I had brekky there. The Riad was in an amazing spot and you have a short and interesting walk to the main square. The beds were very comfy and the breakfast was amazing with croisants and lots of other stuff that was really nice.

THANK YOU RIAD MIRAGE

Like most Riads you wouldn't be able to appreciate the luxury of the premises based on the unassuming outer walls. Once we entered we found a charming and inviting pad with friendly and helpful hosts who made us feel welcome. The Bedrooms come in a single double bed or two single beds with ensuite bathrooms. The are kept clean and comfortable with powerful showers. Breakfast was typically Moroccan with plenty of choice and of a high standard. If you decide to take a meal at the Riad I recommend the lemon chicken tagine...awesome! Your also only five minutes away from the main square. They also have a fairly fast internet connection.
