“Fabulous Moroccan Riad in the Medina”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

The team at Riad Kaiss deserve a hearty thanks for absolutely fabulous hosting - especially by the main host, Hayat. The personalised attention to one's requirements was deeply appreciated. Truly well done to all! THis is a beautiful truly Moroccan Riad in the heart of the old medina.

Again my thanks to the team for a fabulous stay.

Pierre

Recently stayed here with my son for four days, everything about the Riad is brilliant, from the massage to the dinners and peace and quiet in the gardens.

Rooms very good, location extremely good and we found it very difficult to fault. We will return as some time. The staff were some of the best I have encountered, so helpful in arranging our excursions and local visits. Nothing was too much trouble.

nice place, wonderful room (I had room nr.3, with its own terrace, where you can have breakfast if you like), bathroom is ok, even if i would have appreciated to have a more modern mixer for the shower! great romantic experience. food ok, as a restaurant could probably improve, but it was romantic to eat alone on the roof terrance! enjoyed really my stay in marrakech!!

An oais of calm where the staff could not do enough for you. Hajiba and Hayat were the perfect hosts and I felt like a member of the family.
Beautiful decor, gorgeous courtyard garden and terrace and spotless.

Riad is so beautiful. Staff welcoming and helpful. Amazing garden inside and cute little pool. Breakfast at rooftop. Peaceful to sleep. My 2rooms with private terrace was just breathtaking. Dinner was ok not that special for me but served beautifully. Little piece of heaven! Full of roses everywhere! Loved it! Highly recommend to stay here.

Hayat and her staff were so warm and helpful that we can't wait to return. Nothing was too much trouble including a very late, and delicious, meal on the evening of our arrival. It was so quiet and peaceful that we eventually asked if we were the only guests but apparently all 9 rooms were occupied! We rarely encountered any other guests during our stay though and it felt as if we had the whole place to ourselves

Breakfasts were leisurely and taken wherever we wanted in the Riad and on most days we basked in the morning sunshine on the roof terrace. There was always a warm welcome whenever we returned to the riad after a day in the busy souks and a bottle of smooth, Morrocan Syrah was the perfect way to relax before dinner. Although we ate at various places, the dinner at the riad was truly memorable as we sipped wine on the verandah as the staff set up the dining room and lit the fire for us (it was chilly that evening).

Our room was fit for a honeymoon couple with rose petals on the beds. Some luxurious shower gel, body lotion and hair products, in pretty glass and silver bottles, were supplied in the bathroom and the shower was wonderfully powerful and refreshing.

We have both travelled quite extensively and have experienced 5 star hotels and Riad Kaiss was definitely a 5 star experience. We felt totally pampered during the whole of our stay and recommend Riad Kaiss highly - especially for a romantic break or honeymoon, although, alas we were two female friends without partners!

Thank you to all at Riad Kaiss. See you again soon!

...the riad Kaiss is amazing. You step from a litte side alley into a garden with fully matured trees, fountains filled with rose petals and birds singing. But the best thing about the Kaiss is its staff - always smiling and helpful, always there to cater to one's wishes. Whether is bringing the breakfast to the roof terrace because the view there is just spectacular (and that's three flights of stairs) or booking a excursion to the desert - they manage it all impeccably and better then any hotel I have ever stayed in. My roof top abode - room number 9 - came with a terrace and a separte little sitting room with fire place. Liked the hamman as well - including the massage which was deeply relaxing. Location is good - for the original medina hustle and bustle - all you need to do is to step outside. Trouble is - once you are in Riad Kaiss - you do not want to leave....

Room Tip: Room Number 9 - for the penthouse experience and the roof top view!
