This was my second trip to Marrakech with my mum. Having booked Riad l’Orangeraie and receiving such warm and welcoming emails from the owner Cyril we already knew we had made the right choice. Cyril was so helpful and responded promptly to any questions and requests we had.
We arrived at the riad and were welcomed by Ismail who was a delight and served us hot mint tea and Moroccan confectionary upon arrival. All the staff were so friendly, warm and nothing was too much trouble. They all went that extra mile to make the guests feel at home and enjoy the best experience during their stay in Marrakech. The staff’s attentive customer service was second to none. Smiles were in abundance adding that extra sparkle.
Riad l'Orangeraie is a tranquil paradise. So warm and inviting with all the comforts you need during a stay in this vibrant city. With lovely touches throughout the entire riad including the rooms; fresh flowers, candles and mood lighting creates an ambiance you can’t help but fall in love with. The riad is kept to an extremely high standard, so clean and with all the home comforts - the beds are so comfortable not to mention the pressure of the showers
Breakfast served on the rooftop was so good and freshly prepared. We also recommend you eat in the riad one evening and enjoy a traditional tagine along with lots of other delicious accompaniments whilst watching the sunset – absolutely divine!
The riad is ideally located within 5minutes walk from the square making it easy to reach the souks and restaurants. After a busy day out, it is a dream to come back to. You feel completely safe and this is also helped by the fact that you are given a mobile phone allowing you to call the riad at any time should you need to.
A great night out with a difference the Jad Mahal is for sure a place to visit, with amazing food and live entertainment and is easy to get to from the riad by taxi. For those of you who fancy a more cosy night in there are lots of games in the lounge but also for film lovers ‘Casablanca’ is projected on the wall from the ground floor patio. Such a nice touch.
An oasis from the animated hustle and bustle in the medina. This riad is one not to be missed and you will for sure want to return again and again as we will (already booked for later in the year!).
