Reviewed October 6, 2013

We ( 2 couples) stayed in Riad Ariha for a nice long weekend in September. It was absolutely beautiful, and the service was very good. The walk to the markets and souks, although a little complicated, is not far. This riad is a perfect peaceful retreat in the middle of a chaotic city.
While I am sure there are other riads we could have stayed at for a cheaper price, this one was well worth the few extra euros. The rooms are clean and beautifully decorated, the rooftop lounge has a great view, and the staff were very helpful. I would absolutely come back again - especially now that we figured out how to get around from there!
Thank you all for the wonderful stay!

Room Tip: Jaracada has an amazing ceiling in the bathroom.

Having never been to Marrakech before Barbara contacting us in advance to organise our airport transfer and breakfast on arrival was really appreciated. We were immediately upgraded on arrival as the Riad wasn't full and our room was lovely. The owners and staff couldn't have been more pleasant or helpful. The lunch in the Riad was the best meal we had the whole time we were there. The roof and balcony were great places to relax and we ended up staying a whole day in the Riad just reading and enjoying the sunshine and peaceful, relaxing atmosphere. We hope to go back again.

We hired the riad for my mum's 70th. It was absolutely perfect. We arranged dinner the evening we arrived which was lovely. The service was second to none and nothing was a problem on the Saturday morning Amina gave mum a beautiful bunch of roses - a really nice touch. It is in great location right in thick of the medina and short walk to souks. The rooms are all decent sizes. Some better than others but all with nice en suites. Roof top and balcony louge area for reading etc. The plunge pool kept the children happy and the blokes had a proper detox in the hammam. Very highly recommended.

We very much enjoyed our stay in Riad Ariha. It is very clean and our room was spacious with comfortable beds and good quality linen. There were sofas to relax on outside our room and as we were the only ones there Abdulleh brought our delicious breakfast up to us every morning. Thankyou Abdulleh! We had a couple of evening meals there too and they were very tasty. We loved having the place to ourselves. All the staff were very helpful as was the friendly owner. There is a roof with sun beds to relax on too and it is only a few minutes walk to the souks. Would definitely return.

Room Tip: 1st floor rooms have comfortable seating area right outside

Five star personal service and attention to detail give this Riad the edge over other choices in Marrakech. Peaceful, with a hammam, endless tea and choice of two terraces to lounge in, relaxation is easy. Special thank you to Amina and Abdul, who looked after me as if I were family.

The riad was wonderful. The staff is truly beyond hospitable, just warm and lovely. The food was to die for, and the service, in general, was incredible.

We were very pleased, we'll recommend it often.

Room Tip: The jacaranda room is the best!

Somewhat hidden away but it's always fun finding your way out of the maze of Marrakesh. We loved this Riad, the service and hospitality were of high quality. The food is exceptional, when you order a main course seemingly independent of other courses, you get a substantial quality 3 course dinner. Leave plenty of room before you eat. The staff are friendly and accommodating and the ambiance, decor and accommodation are a delight. We would have liked to have stayed longer. Highly recommend.
