The manager and staff were incredibly kind and accommodating. There are so many different experiences, eating by the pool, the Hamman, the courtyards and sitting areas were all unique. It is Morocco at its finest.

Room Tip: Ask for a suite, you will love it!

What more to say? Stayed a full week and we really felt at home! Never happened in our life full of travelling. Very nice, helpful and multi lingual (even Dutch!) staff, the room and bed(!) were spacious and clean. The food was excellent, wifi and tv were state of the art, the swimming pool was heated, and a trip to the gardens (free transfer) was also an experience worth while. We loved the intimate atmosphere of a small hotel and the decoration was what you should expect in a top riad. Authentic and not overdone. Like staying with friends. By the way la Maison Arabe has an exquisite shop where they have made a pre-selection of all the good souvenirs of Marrakech. Furthermore the location is close to all interesting places in and around the medina and if they are still too far, the staff will call a taxi for you. We certainly hope to go back there!

Room Tip: ask for a room with view at the garden/swimming pool.

All in this HOTEL is special, every employee treats guests with a heartfelt smile, the suite we occupied was 242 (THE NADA SUITE), was perfect. Sheets and pillow cases of the best cotton.
Breakfast was served outside in a semi-covered patio around the heated swimming pool. All kinds of goodies were offered as well as omlets, fried eggs etc. We went for dinner at one their restaurants, the morrocan one, and ate a leg of lamb to die for. The staff was always attentive to every one of our needs to the point of having their porter take us to the corner to pick up our pick up vehicles. My wife is campaining all the family to go Marrakesh next year. Obviously to stay at this exceptional RIAD.

Visited La Maison Arabe Spa on the last day of my trip to Morocco this week! I went with a good friend of mine and we thought we'd indulge after hours of relentless (and amazing) sightseeing! We chose a Hammam treatment with Gommage followed by a massage. The place is just beautiful and you are instantly immersed into a relaxing, aromatic atmosphere guaranteed to soothe. If you are having a massage you can pick your oil out of a delightful selection they will have laid out for you. They will also explain how everything will work.

The Hammam is essentially a really good sauna, the Gommage is a really good scrubbing and you also get a lovely hairwash so you are squeaky clean and relaxed. The massage was lovely, very soothing and just the right pressure but they will ask you if you prefer harder or softer.

We chose to have a mint tea in the internal courtyard afterwards and it was delightful with traditional biscuits and the service was ever so attentive. There is also WiFi so if you want to pop a photo on Instagram or tweet about it all - you can do!

I would definitely recommend La Maison Arabe if you are after a touch of luxury at what really is amazing value!!

When getting out of the Taxi and taken down a narrow passage in the depths of the Madina, its easy to be confused. However what greats you is incredible, the welcome is so friendly, the food is great.
If you are tired of walking and need one day of relaxing make sure you go to the Country club.

We loved this hotel! The staff was amazing, the interior architecture and interior design was beautiful. Authentic Morocco with all the comforts of good bedding and wonderful baths. The poolside restaurant was delicious - staff was wonderful about our early departure and provided breakfast for us. Loved it!

We had arranged for a taxi to pick us up at the airport and take us straight to the Riad. It dropped us at the end of an alleyway, and we wondered what we were in for! As we were later to find out, the Riad, as with many other buildings in Marrakech, revealed behind the walls was a superb hidden oasis! We were warmly welcomed by the manager, and because we were a little early for check in, were treated to refreshments in one of the lovely courtyards. We were shown around the entire Riad and then to our room, which had a balcony, overlooking the pool and outdoor restaurant. The room was perfect, clean and welcoming. Plenty of room, with the bathroom more than adequate. All the of the staff couldn't have been more friendly or helpful. they gave us advise on sightseeing and travelling around the town, and they arranged a super trip for us up into the Atlas Mountains. There are two main restaurants, one serving traditional Moroccan fare, and the other a variety. All the food in both restaurants were delicious. The Riad has a traditional Hammam and spa, do try it, it's superb! There are a couple of bars, and every evening we were there, there was a pianist in the jazz bar, a great start to any evening activities! The Riad has a country club, about ten minutes away and we spent a day there. Maybe because of the time of year, we were the only ones there! It has a larger pool, although not heated. We had lunch laid on for us and were waited on though out the day with refreshments. I would highly recommend this wonderful gem, well worth the stay.
