“Wonderful stay!”
Reviewed August 24, 2014

Everything about this Riad was perfect. Good location, beautiful hotel, clean, safe, good food and wonderful staff. Can't say enough about the staff. Thanks to Ibrahim who brought my daughter a rose on her birthday, Abudllah who was such an attentive waiter. Raja and Mourad at the front desk. Rashida and really, everyone else. We enjoyed our stay and highly recommend it.

Room Tip: If you can book the room with the rooftop jacuzzi, it's worth the extra money

We have just got back from 4 days in Marrakesh, we had been twice before but without children and stayed in small riads, this time we were travelling with our 6 year old. Maison Arabe couldnt have been a better choice. The staff were amazing, friendly, helpful and couldnt do enough to help.
The country club was the perfect escape, our daughter loved it.... And although it was beautiful, it was the staff that made the time there so special.
La Maison Arabe was the perfect Riad to stay with kids, close to the souks, great food, lovely room, and the country club, made a perfect combination...i cant recommend highly enough.

Room Tip: We had a small suite room 211 which was perfect as our daughter had a seperate room.

Dear Esteemed Client,

Thank you for your kind review. We are delighted that you and your daughter enjoyed your stay with us. I would like to point out to Tripadvisor readers that
although we welcome families with children over 5 years old, we unfortunately cannot accept children younger than 5, as we are a small hotel and do not have the appropriate facilities for very young children.

The staff here could not have been more helpful with directions, tours, and dining. The breakfast is superb. The cooking class was beyond expectations- not only did we learn how to make chicken pastille in tagine (a common Moroccan dish), prior to the class we took a tour around the medina to see a local bakery, spice store, and butcher. The well-informed instructions spoke excellent english, and the kitchen was clean and beautifully arranged. Our room had a view of the pool- a true oasis the middle os the busy medina. I couldn't recommend this road more-

My fiance and I spent 12 days traveling throughout Morocco, staying at all 5 star accommodations. Far and away, our favorite was La Maison Arabe. This gem of a riad is just perfect. From the friendly staff to the gorgeous grounds to the fabulous restaurant to the GORGEOUS country club (15 mins by car), the entire experiences was amazing. I would go back to Marrakech just to stay here. We loved our room, too.

Very friendly staff (which is hard to find in Marrakech), excellent spa facilities and great dinning. We tried different restaurants and hammams but our hotel probably had the best and most convenient.

Definitely book a table by the pool to dine one night, the cuisine is incredible and very authentic.

Looking forward to going back and taking my partner there!

Room Tip: Try to get pool view!

Few places tick as many boxes as this. A stunning warren of rooms in combined restored Riads right on the edge of the Medina. We were greeted by charming staff and a cocktail on arrival and the high standards never wavered throughout our stay. You have the choice of 2 classy restaurants, both with traditional live musicians as well as a welcoming bar. The underground hammam is an oasis of tranquility offering all spa treatments as well as henna for children. Regular shuttles to the nearby country club and it's cookery school are the icing on the cake.
