Enjoyed a stay in this delightful Riad. Staff very attentive to your needs. Wadi was especially helpful, making sure that we were well looked after and booking tickets and arranging transport for us. Nothing was too much trouble, met at airport, taken to Raid, and you certainly need this kind of support if you have never traveled to Morocco before. The rooms were well appointed, Hot shower, fruit and chocolates and a guide with lots of information to local attractions. We had a wonderful meal at the Riad. We ate out a lot but this meal was certainly one of the best in Marrakesh. You can either sit under the stars or in a wonderful decorated and charming room on the ground floor. Breakfast was also very good. Thanks to Wadi, who made our stay so lovely, we will be back.

Tips, only arrange taxis, local eating places through the Riad, Staff who have a wealth of experience and able to advise or best eating places. Also taxis are best arranged by them, or you could well end up lost and be ripped off from local taxi drivers.
One disappointment was that we hired a official guide to take us the first day around Marrakesh. Interesting to start with and gained lots of knowledge. However be warned, and the end of the morning we ended the day in local 'friends and relatives shops' with a high sell and was told this was for 'education purposes only'. This was not the case, it was clear that we were taken there to buy goods and this felt very uncomfortable and not a pleasant experience.

Also there are local well presented dressed men, who speak good English who will come up to you in the main square of Marrakesh making out they are staff from your Riad/hotel and offer to show your around. They appear very convincing, and friendly, and if feeling tired after a day of travel, it is easy to fall for this. , I heard many stories of the of people who have been caught out. They simply work on commission to take you to family shops and local eating places. Be very careful not to fall for this scam.

Best as previous stated, is to organize everything through the Riad, this proved to be our best move and certainly a least expensive one.

Thanks to all, for making our trip and very memorable one.

This riad has a professional attitude towards the visitors, while at the same time they make sure you feel welcome and they will help you with whatever problem you might have.
They will take care of absolutely everything for you (restaurants, drivers,guides, trips,...)
we even got a nice welcoming gift!
Great riad.
A bit more expensive then compareble riads in the rest of Morocco, but it's in the middle of Marrakech!

We are already thinking about when we can visit this wonderful Riad and City again! From the moment we were met from the airport to the moment we left nothing was a problem - lovely, warm old fashioned service (UK hotels take note!) At first I thought the location was a little out of the way – about 20 min walk to Jamal el fna, but the walk was very easy and you didn’t have to negotiate the souk if you don’t want to. Wadi, Abdess, Mustafa and all the staff at Riad El Mansour were just charming - friendly and welcoming at all times. I would recommend this Riad and City to anyone, we loved every minute of it.

We stayed at Al Mansour with our two children this past August (same time as Paddy77Staffs). Not much to say that hasn't already been said. It really is a value: a luxury Riad at a reasonable price. Lots of personalized attention, and delicious food (don't miss the Moroccan salad and eggplant rolls). It is down a quiet street, away from the hustle (and hustling) of the main drag. Our room was small for 4 (the larger one we had booked was under construction) but Al Mansour up for it with two in-riad massages and free transport to the Palmeriae for a camel ride. I'm not sure I would visit Marrakech again in August with two small children, but if I do return I'll be staying at Al Mansour.

Riad El Mansour is conveniently situated near the perimeter wall of the Medina but also within 20 minutes walk of the central square. We found the location peaceful and enjoyed relaxing on the rooftop terrace in the evenings. Service was excellent and the room was beautiful. The evening meal at the Riad was excellent, as were the breakfasts. Recommended.

It's normal for us to visit a new country every year and our choice this year fell on Morocco. We stayed at the Riad El Mansour in Marrakech. From the exchange of e-mails to our departure after five days, we experienced nothing but the utmost courtesy and kind attention from the entire staff.

Must do:- Eat with the locals in the square. Sheep's head soup, with separate servings of sweetbreads, brains, tripes and meat that melts in your mouth. Best with hot mint tea. Never tasted anything so heavenly! Also in the square, boiled snails. Don't forget to drink the broth.

Souks - a cavenous treasure trove, a real Alladin's Cave. Leather belts, handbags and shoes. Berbers ceramic wares and more. Quite besotted by the colours and crafts. Haggling is a sport, a game, it's fun. What can I say to that?

Jardin Majorelle - a piece of Eden on earth.

Arom Montagne in Ourika. Herbs and spices that take care of all your health and beauty needs - literally.

In time of Ramadan, the wails of the muezzin to break fast at around 19.10h must be the sweetest sound. We shall return!

This is the Riad el Mansour.
The riad has it all sorted.The superb details make it stand out as one of the very best from the massive choice out there.
Ask and it will be done! ,Nothing is too much trouble for the warm,friendly staff of the riad.
This includes free transfers to and from the airport, wonderful recommendations of places to eat and to visit. Restaurants can be booked for you and there is also a driver that will come and collect you once your meal is over.
We were totally pampered during our stay ,this hotel just has so mcuh going for it, including the beautiful interior and at night it is transformed with candles and beautiful lightng. We have never felt so at home was like coming back to friends.
In my rush to pack and catch my flight I stupidly left my camera behind, at the airport I got a phone call from the hotel to say they had my camera ,within 2o mins a member of staff appeared to reunite my camera and I .What a service
A truly enjoyable stay,I will indeed return to Marrakech and would now stay nowhere else but the Riad.
