I have travelled in Morrocco alot and I have to say that this is definitely one of the best places I have stayed.
perfectly situated a few minutes walk from Djema al Fna it is surrounded by the hustle and bustle of Marrakesh but inside there is nothing but peace and tranquility. There are five or six rooms centred around a courtyard that provides a much needed centre of cool and calm in the heat of the city.
I have stayed in four of the rooms and they are all beautifully decorated in the traditional style, luxuriant, cosy and clean each with an en suite bathroom. There is a roof terrace where you can lounge around, listen to the call to prayer and watch the swallows ducking and diving around you. Or if the heat is too much you can descend to the central courtyard and sit under the lemon tree to drink the delicious mint tea that is always availabe and chat with your fellow guests (if you choose).
The thing that really makes Riad Magi special for me are the staff. I have met many incredible characters in Morocco but I have never come across such a wonderful group of welcoming friendly helpful people as the people that work in this Riad. They are there for you always to help you with anything you could need. The manager speaks both English and French perfectly and is a really great guy, and the other members of staff are all incredibly sweet.
If you are thinking of going to Marrakesh I would thoroughly recommend that the first place you call is Riad Magi- you wont regret it.
I cant finish this review without mentioning that the breakfast you will be given at Riad Magi is the best in Morrocco.
