My husband and I stayed here in February 2016 for three nights and absolutely loved our stay. It was our first trip to Marrakech and we wanted to experience the hustle and bustle of the Medina whilst having a little piece of calmness to return to each day.

The Riad is on a quiet street and very well located to the main square in the medina (10-12 minutes walk), inside it is spacious and calm. The art deco style is lovely and offers something different. You can see how much time and effort has been spent furnishing the hotel/riad to absolute perfection.

The bedrooms are lovely, although a little on the dark side. There is a wonderful roof terrace and spa.

The service we received was absolutely fantastic. Everyone was so friendly, we booked 2 guides through the front desk - one to take us through the medina and souks and another to take us to the Atlas Mountains, both guides were wonderful and very well chosen by the hotel.

We only ate breakfast at the hotel and all other meals we had out, although had we have stayed for more than three nights, we certainly would have eaten in one night. The breakfast was lovely; you don't order anything, instead, they'll bring you a section of fruits, local delicacies, breads, pancakes, etc. and freshly squeezed juices. The restaurant manager remembered what drinks we asked for on our first morning (breakfast tea and fresh fruit smoothie) and always made sure they were ready for us each morning at breakfast.

I have removed a star for two reasons; firstly as already mentioned, the room was too dark - understandably the style of lamps chosen were reflective of the art deco style, but it would have been useful if they'd included more of them as the low lighting made it difficult to read (and apply make up with confidence) :-)

Secondly; wifi was an issue - it only works in the restaurant, lounge area and lobby, it does't work in any of the bedrooms. For three nights, it was actually rather refreshing not getting caught up in the digital world when we were in our bedroom, but because it was our first time in Marrakech we needed to come down to the lounge area quite often to check locations of restaurants, reviews, local maps, etc.

All in all, it was a truly wonderful experience and we absolutely loved Marrakech. We will definitely be back.

Room Tip: We saw two rooms, both were quite dark - if this would be a problem for you, ask for a lighter/brighter room.

As soon as we arrived at the airport and were met by our transfer we knew we were in for a good week so headed to the hotel with positive vibes! On arrival we were welcomed with traditional Moroccan tea and told about excursions available before given a tour of the hotel and finally being shown to our room - what a fantastic start!

Our room was compact but had everything we needed for a four night stay including a large shower and bath robes, both of which are a thumbs up from me.

The hotel staff could not have been friendlier and were so attentive to your every need, nothing was too much. They arranged all our tours and the providers were all great.

We tested out the Hammam/Sauna and the Jacuzzi plus I had a facial and a massage in the spa which were both lovely.

We'd love to return to Villa Makassar in the summer months when we can make more use of the roof terrace and sun beds!

One last thing - a BIG thank you to all at Villa Makassar who made our stay superb :)

This hotel is truly amazing. Stunning rooms: loved the jacuzzi in the floor of our first room then we were upgraded to another very large room with a beautiful four poster bed. Breakfasts on the rooftop in the lovely December sun. Was lovely and peaceful going at off peak times.

We stayed at Villa Makassar for 6 days and had an excellent experience. Everyone was very kind and professional: the staff was great and Claudine directed us to the right people in Marrakech, helping us make the stay in Marrakech even more pleasant. The spa was relaxing (recommend the hammam) and the restaurant's menu was highly appreciated.

From the moment we stepped foot in villa makassar we were treated like princesses. The most friendly, warm and caring staff we have ever encountered at a hotel stay.
The food was excellent, breakfast to be served whenever you chose and the decor was to die for.
A beautiful environment which ensured for the most perfect stay.

We would recommend it to the queen.

Stayed: August 2015, travelled with friends
