There is nothing negative about this superb place. on arrival the reception was welcoming. our room was fabulous. position of the Riad is great for everything. The staff (every one of them) go that extra mile to ensure you are happy. I don't wan to say to much to spoil the enjoyment if you go. its fabulous and you will not be disappointed.

A Little Piece of Heaven in the Medina
Reviewed 7 days ago

From airport transfer to check out, the service and surroundings are impeccable. This was the second time staying here as we loved it so much the first time. Hidden away and situated on a bustling road is a peaceful haven. Once inside, the noise soon reduces. It's just a short walk away from the famous Jemaa El-Fnaa square.
The hotel itself has been done to the highest standard with carved walls and ceilings everywhere you look, hanging Moroccan lanterns, orange trees filling the courtyard and subtle smells of incense burning. There are many areas you can explore and sit quietly and read a book or magazine. There is also a spa with lots of lovely treatments, including the traditional hammam. I had a facial last time, well worth it.
I stayed here with my Mum and we had a lovely room upstairs in the tranquil courtyard (last time we were downstairs). It was pleasant, with large bed and clean sheets, tv, safe, wardrobe space, bathroom with shower and bath, 2 sinks, hairdryer.
The pool area is beautiful, with different seating areas depending on your preference. There are 3 pools, which are heated in low seasons and were refreshing after a busy day shopping in the souks.
We had dinner at the hotel each night, but you can go out, and is served in one of the dining areas with a crackling fire and possibly the resident cat. There was a variety of dishes on the menu and each was beautifully presented. Breakfast is included in the price and serves coffee and tea to pastries and omelettes. In summer, you'll sit under the lovely pergola overlooking the pool and gardens with the warm sunshine shining through.
The staff are incredible, from the porters and doormen to waiters/waitresses to managerial, they are all polite and very welcoming and do their best to accommodate your desires.
It's slightly cheaper in lower season as it's a little cooler and quieter and found that rooms in the courtyard area, are generally quieter. In terms of value for money, it is quite pricey but the experience, rooms, surroundings and service certainly make up for it.
Thank you very much for a delightful stay

Wonderful property and service!

Location was perfect - we walked all around the medina from here. The common areas of the hotel are spectacular with many sitting areas to choose from. Just pick a spot and someone will appear to serve you tea or a glass of wine.

Great hotel but poor rooms
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

The hotel itself is truly 5 star- the common areas are stunning and in perfect condition. The staff is also excellent and they go out of their way to make guests feel welcome. We chose this property even though it was extremely pricey for Marrakech (480usd for a regular room) because of the inclusive transportation, breakfast, lunch, beverages, etc. As two females on our first trip to the city this was extremely valuable and helped make our trip comfortable.

However, the rooms were simply not 5 star quality. We of course did not expect a large room as we did not pay for a suite but the room was extremely tiny and dark and had a musty smell. The bathroom was horrible- the faucet was loose and coming out of the countertop, and it consistently leaked throughout our stay, even though we requested it be fixed. The shower was poorly designed causing water to splash all over the floor, which in turn caused the metal towel rack next to the shower to rust over time and create stains on the floor. The fan in the bathroom did not properly vent the room causing everything, including our toiletries, to become blanketed in mist. This is likely the source of the musty smell. When we attempted to address these issues with the hotel, we received an arrogant response from the unfriendly manager. I believe he was the manager but who knows because he never introduced himself to us or followed up to see if our issues had been resolved. The proper response would be for him to have been embarrassed for the condition of the room, or at least pretended to be. I am in the service industry as well and expected an offer of a better room or some sort of sincere gesture. This is low season and the hotel was not particularly busy.

In short, if you are paying for a suite perhaps your experience will be better. Regardless the value is simply not there. Now that I am comfortable with navigating the city on my own I would not stay here again. Hotels of similar quality can be found for half the price.

A Peaceful Treasure in the midst of the Medina
Reviewed 1 month ago

We simply loved this hotel. It's gorgeous, the staff is excellent, professional, helpful, & caring. We had room #7, which is a large suite with a huge terrace in the older section. Very sweet and the terrace was wonderful for breakfast al fresco and I did my mat work outs up there, as the gym is pretty minimal.
Yes, the spot is next to a tire shop, but it's also down the street from the King's palace. You can walk everywhere and once you enter the magical door, life is transformed. Gorgeous tangerine trees filled courtyards, there are pools & hidden alcoves. We regret not having time to try the spa, but we loved the restaurant and ate out best meals in Marrakech there.
We went to La Mamounia for NYE, it was crazy & fun, but the food was inedible and we were so grateful to return to our little slice of peaceful heaven.
The staff arranged tours & dinner reservations for us, all of which we loved.
Airport transfers and laundry, along with breakfast and a light lunch are all included.
My only tiny negative issues were the darkness of the room and the bit of noise one heard from the courtyard. Not big deals at all.
I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Marrakech, but I will book a grand suite next time.
