I recently visited Riad Monica with 3 friends for a 50th birthday. I was a little bit concerned having booked through Authentic Luxury Travel but my worries were soon put to rest. The taxi was waiting for us at the airport and dropped us at the Riad. We were very pleasantly suprised when we stepped inside. We were treated like royalty, nothing was too much trouble. I can’t praise the staff enough, everything was just as advertised I can’t wait to return.

Room Tip: Leave it to Hicham of Authentic Luxury Travel, all rooms are good.

Fantastic stay here in Riad Monika during Christmas 2012. The room doesn't look exactly like the one in the website, but it was still very nice. The common area and roof terrace was lovely and we enjoyed the breakfast up in the terrace or just relaxing around the common area. We loved the bread, it was always very fresh in the morning.

But I think what excel in this Riad is the staff. Zohair & co. (especially Khalil) were the best hospitality staff that we've encountered so far. Khalil was always so nice to us, didn't speak a word in English but somehow he managed to look after us during our stay.

We stayed 4 nights in this beautiful Riad located in the heart of the medina, moments from the Ben Youssef coranic school. Excellent, warm welcome by Zouhair! We were treated to our best meal in Marrakech, cooked by Zouhair's wife. We already miss drinking mint tea on the roof terrace! Highly recommended.

We have just returned from a four night stay in Marrakech and a wonderful stay in Riad Monika. I don't think I have ever researched as much on any place we have visited as I did with Marrakech and in choosing a Riad. There is a staggering amount of information out there which at times made me a little nervous in travelling. BUT I should not have had any worries as we had a truely wonderful trip and had made all the right choices.

The Riad is perfectly located. You can wander through the narrow streets, through the souks and arrive at Jamaa el Naa in about 20 mins. During this walk we did not get hassled or tugged at, and once we memorized landmarks, we found our way back no problem.

Very important plus with Riad Monika is that Zouhair (such a gentleman!) will call a petite taxi for you which will pull up directly outside the Riad's door and take you anywhere (we travelled to La Mamounia Hotel, Le Grand Cafe de la Poste, and Dar Rhizlane (very disappointing food). The driver would return and collect us when we wanted him to and he would bring us back to the Riad where we would then pay him for entire trip. Faultless!

The Riad itself is beautiful but this has been said in many reviews. The entire staff are friendly and helpful. Zouhair is there to help you and nothing is too much trouble for him.

Our room was the Suite Hayat and it was beautiful. It was located up the short stairs directly inside the Riad's door so it could be a little noisy at times but we got used to it. The 5am call to prayer was loud in itself.... but if you want the full medina experience, I don't think you can avoid this. Now that we are home, I am so glad we stayed within the walls.

We did the Atlas Mountain, Berber Village, Waterfall trip with Abdulah who was a super guide with excellent knowledge and English.

The rest of our trip was simply enjoying the Marrakech experience. There is no need to be any way more cautious than you would be when visiting another other large city. It was wonderful! It is not full of flies or local people dragging you or trying to scam you, it is alive and exciting and I am so glad we visited it. Would love to return again and would stay at Riad Monika again when we do,

We spent two nights at the Riad Monika and thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. It was the start of our honeymoon and we were so pleased that we had chosen such a lovely riad. Zouhair and his staff were very helpful and Zouhair came on foot to meet us as there is no access by car in the small roads of the medina. Zouhair recommended a good restaurant for us to eat on the first night and another member of staff escorted us to the restaurant through the maze of alleyways of the medina. After the meal we called the riad and someone came to meet us and take us back to the riad. Zouhair also arranged an excellent guide to take us by car around the main sites of Marrakech which was well worth doing. Nothing was too much trouble for Zouhair and his staff. On the second night of our trip we chose to have a meal at the Riad. Zouhair's wife cooked an amazing meal which was delicious and beautiful and was one of the best meals we had in our 2 week trip. One afternoon we sunbathed on the terrace and then had a refreshing dip in the plunge pool. Breakfast was served on the stunning roof terrace and was delicious, particularly the pancakes. The riad is also truly stunning with ornate decoration everywhere and beautiful objects. It is a haven of tranquillity away from the hectic medina. I would definitely recommend Riad Monika and would love to go and stay there again some time.
