Nice but not wonderful
Reviewed 11 hours ago

We booked dinner here on the strength of reviews on here. It was perfectly nice but lacked the wow factor.

The room is nice enough but does not live up to the photos. We were seated in an annexe off the courtyard which was traditionally and attractively decorated - but were slightly disappointed not to be by the central pool prominently featured online. Well, disappointed until I walked through to the loo and noticed how cramped and scruffy this area looked. Not at all as it looked in pictures.

The food was good but not mind blowing. Nice Moroccan salads. The much vaunted specials that we had ordered ahead were perfectly fine but no better than dishes ordered in other similar places without advance notification. The service was good but it all felt a bit ‘hushed’. The whole place felt a bit ‘careful’ and I did not find it particularly relaxing. Not bad, but I wouldn’t return. It cost just over £100 equivalent which I felt was pretty steep.

Rather off puttingly they give you a feedback form to complete before you leave. This puts customers in a really awkward position where you kind of feel obliged to give positive feedback as the staff see it there and then.

Amazing and romantic stay at Riad 72
Reviewed 12 hours ago

This is an absolutely amazing place to stay while in Marrakesh! The staff and management are attentive, friendly and considerate, while the Riad itself is beautiful and luxurious.

My wife and I stayed in one of the ground floor rooms which was wonderfully comfortable and beautifully appointed.

We also indulged in a private hammam at the Riad which was a relaxing and enjoyable experience.

This really is a top class place to stay with amazing food, facilities and staff and we would not hesitate to come back to "our home in Marrakesh".

Hidden little gem!
Reviewed 15 hours ago

Whilst in Marrakech, my friend and I stayed at Riad 72.

We arranged the airport transfer directly with the Riad and from start to finish we could not fault the service provided by the management and staff. We were greeted at the airport by our driver who were very knowledgeable and gave us a history of the city whilst travelling to the Riad.

When we got to the destination, a porter was there waiting for us to take our bags through the narrow little windy roads to the hidden Riad.

Upon arrival at the Riad, we were sat down at the courtyard and provided with fresh mint tea and pastries to unwind. We were then joined by the manager, Stefania, who gave us really helpful information on the things we can see / do at Marrakech.

Our room (junior suite) was amazing and we had our own private balcony with a jacuzzi bath. What we found really helpful was the handy mobile phone the Riad provided which gave us gps and internet access whilst we were out and about. We used it a lot!

We had dinner at the Riad on the first night and the food was lovely. We also took advantage of the facilities and had hamman and a massage.

Our two nights stay was bliss, we couldn't have asked for more.

The Riad was wonderful and the view were amazing. The staff were impeccable. I would definitely stay here again and couldn't recommend it highly enough!

Paradise in Marrakech
Reviewed 1 day ago

Best Riad right in the heart of the Medina. Everyone went above and beyond to make my trip so fantastic. Yassin took such good care of us every night when we'd come down for dinner or drinks. He also went out of his way and served us on their gorgeous rooftop. I can't say enough great things! Highly recommended!

Phenomenal Service and Outstanding Room
Reviewed 1 day ago

You can really tell the workers take pride in their jobs. Every single employee was extremely helpful and friendly at every encounter. The location was prime, within walking distance to the Medina and the new city. The room was excellent; it was very large and spotlessly clean every day. I even saw a cleaner one day moving a lamp to clean under and around the base; something you would never see at a normal property. Finally, the on-site restaurant was delicious. We actually ate there every night and enjoyed every meal. They were also quite accommodating with our sleeping infant and served us meals on the terrace directly outside our room. I would highly recommend Riad 72.
