We just spent a wonderful week at La Maison Arabe! What an enchanting place. The staff were fantastic and very helpful. We loved our room – we had one overlooking the pool. The food was incredible and the breakfast was out of this world.

We really enjoyed the Moroccan restaurant – what an experience. We had a beef and lamb tagines – they were both really delicious. We loved the music as well. The restaurant is beautifully decorated in traditional moroccan style.

The spa treatments were amazing – best massage we have ever had and the spa staff are outstanding.

The best kept secret is the country club location – which is a another location about 15 mins from the hotel via a shuttle – with beautiful gardens and a huge pool. It was such a tranquil place.

We chose this hotel because of the great reviews on trip advisor and we were not let down. We whole heartedly recommend this hotel. It is one of the best we have ever stayed at.

Thank you to all the staff at La Maison Arabe for the most fantastic week.

Room Tip: Overlooking the pool - very nice - but we saw another room which was not overlooking the pool and it was lovely too.

I am so very happy that we found La Maison Arabe. I cannot recommend it highly enough. The Riad itself is well situated, extremely clean, and well cared for. What set this place apart however was the incredibly supportive staff. They responded to each and every request we had and always with a smile. When we were ripped off a little while shopping they even interceded with the shop keeper to get our money back!

The food in the restaurants and bar was terrific and of course the service was great as well.

When you go there be sure to go to the Moroccan cooking class - it's truly world class as well.

I agree with the other reviews though having stayed in a beautiful riad in Essaouira (Riad Chbanate) La Maison Arabe felt much more like a hotel than a Riad. The service was excellent, the Jazz bar is a beautiful space as are many of the small lounges and courtyard spaces. The rooms (in the modern part of the hotel) were good though lacked some Moroccan charm or feel for me. The rooms in the original part of the hotel might be better.

Room Tip: Check out the rooms in the old part of hotel.

Dear Esteemed Client,
Many thanks for the kind words you have written about our establishment, and for the opportunity to explain to Tripadvisor members what we feel distinguishes our hotel from a traditional riad property. La Maison Arabe has evolved over the years by combining five adjoining riads and the former stables of the pasha’s palace. Most riad properties in Marrakech have a central courtyard, and between 3 and 8 guestrooms. We have numerous lounges and patios, 26 rooms and suites, and a staff of 100. We strive to provide the personalized service of a smaller riad property, while offering at the same time the amenities typical of larger hotels: 2 restaurants, a piano bar, a wellness center with 2 large hammams and 5 massage rooms, a cooking school with workstations for 10 participants, a boutique, room service, laundry service, and a 24-hour front desk. We also offer our guests a choice of two swimming pools: on-site in the medina, and one set in luxuriant gardens, 15 minutes away by complimentary shuttle. So we like to think of ourselves as a “riad-hotel”, offering clients a traditional medina experience that combines the beauty and charm of a riad property with the amenities and service of a hotel.
Respectfully yours,
Taoufik Ghaffouli
General Manager
La Maison Arabe

My partner and I were recommended this place by a friend. We decided to go for dinner as our friend had said it was the best place they went to during their stay in Morocco.
We didn't make a reservation, but we got there well before the restaurant opened for the evening. We went to the bar and had drinks while we waited. The decor was just absolutely stunning!
The staff were super friendly and extremely efficient. With our drinks they served us a variety of little nibbles such as nuts, olives and peppers, which was such a nice touch.
The restaurant was as equally gorgeous, we were seated next to the pool and there were candles lit everywhere giving it a very romantic feel.
They had two men on acoustic guitars singing, which added to the experience.
The food was amazing and was my favourite during our stay in Marrakech.
I highly recommend this place to all! It is just totally fab in every way!

We spent 4 nights as my family wanted to experience a different culture. Marrakech was certainly that, but despite heat in the 40's and Ramadam it was well worth it. You have to be careful, but we didn't find intimidating, ate In the square, bartered and loved the vibrant activity. In the middle of this La Maison was a wonderful oasis of calm. The rooms luxurious, the staff great and breakfast in the courtyard by the pool wonderfully calming. Being in the Medina made us feel even more absorbed. The hotel also has a Kasbah/country club that you reach by shuttle bus. After a half day walking the souks this was fantastic. The hotel also recommended great restaurants. We then spent a week at the Sofitel in essaouira which made this more traditional hotel a special comparison.
