This little Riad has got it all: peaceful location in the Medina (incredible, i know!), beatifully decorated clean rooms, outdoor space and great food. The hosts, Mohamed and Hamid, are very welcoming and they really make you feel at home, offering the right balance between giving you privacy and always being there for you. Everything you've previously read about them...

This was now my second stay in Riad Palau and I still like it very much! Both Sultana and Royale room are really spacious and with unique local decoration. You get everything you need - from a strong A/C to a big bathroom with a well running shower. The common area of this riad with only 4 rooms is very...

The friendliest, most welcoming and unique place we've ever stayed. Mohammed and Hammed couldn't have been better hosts! Highly recommend you stay here if you come to Marrakech....right in the heart of the medina with easy access to the traditional Moroccan culture.

Dear Amstraveler, Let me introduce myself, I'm David Palau, owner of the Riad. I know giving my last name to the Riad is not very original. I assure you it wasn't my idea but it works and it seems people like it. We never had anyone relating it with the islands you mention. In fact, Palau is translated as "Palace"...

We really enjoyed our stay at Riad Palau. It's a very nice, clean and well decorated Riad. The two hosts, Mohamed and Hamid, made us feel at home since the first minute of our stay.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Riad Palau is the result of Sonia and Josep Maria's dream, a couple from northern Spain who always had the illusion of owning a Riad and manage it as a Guest House in the medina of Marrakech. Riad Palau is an ancient small palace placed in the heart of one of the most popular neighborhoods of Marrakesh. Two years of restoration held by the best artisans in the medina and the experience and help of our friends Manel and David guarantee that your stay in Riad Palau and in the "Red City" won't be easy to forget. ... more   less
