From the moment you arrive, the team at Riad Shaden were so warm and welcoming. Youssef and Siad are wonderful. I had lunch at the Riad which was a feast of traditional Moroccan food and was delicious. Youssef was excelling in educating me about aspects of Marrakech. I would definitely recommend a visit to this Riad as I enjoyed my...

I stayed at Riad Shaden for a week in early March. I was met at the airport by the driver Abdhul who was charming and spoke excellent English.

Well our plane was diverted and delayed, so we missed our transfer to the Riad. Finding our way to the Riad by ourselves had us in a bit of a "state", however that all quickly changed as soon as we stepped inside the Riad and were greeted by Youssef and some mint tea. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, from the...

We so enjoyed our stay at Riad Shaden. For a 4-day break, it was so relaxing, comfortable, calm and peaceful and we both left feeling the benefits of our stay in Marrakech in a way that we haven't from a longer stay in other places.

We stayed at Riad Shaden for 3 nights at the beginning of March and really enjoyed our stay.

I stayed at the Riad Shaden as part of a 12 girl hen-do.

The Riad was beautifully decorated, spacious and clean at all...
