The rooms as well as the whole Riad have a wonderful moroccan flair. The team was very weolcoming and helpful concerning the organization of trips to the atlas and the desert. We where picked up by Majhoub from the airport, and right away we found an awesome guide and companion for the next few days. The breakfast was included in the price and it was ok, but a bit more variation could have been nice. The location of the Riad was perfect, just a short walk from the souks. I would absolutely recommend to stay here!

Brace yourselves as this is going to be a praised fill review.

Our trip started with A delayed flight from Seville into Marrakech. Once we landed we called the hotel, as they had coordinated travel for us, to inform them that our flight was delayed and we had just arrived. They advised that the driver was still waiting for us and will have a sign with the Riad's name. Sure enough we walked outside and found our driver. The trip from the airport to the hotel was seamless.

As soon as we entered the hotel we were met with the wonderful scents of Lavender/rose/Mint all around the Riad. The wonder Pascel greeted us and had fresh tea waiting for us.We drank the tea and was escorted to our rooms. From there, it felt as if we were being waited on hand and foot. Anything and everything we asked for was provided to us. And was provided to us with genuine care. They are the nicest people ever. Jawad and Sofian were extremely accommodating. We asked for an Iron, they provided it, We asked to have our clothes washed, the provided it. We asked for more wine they provided it. They were also very friendly. Teaching us Arabic words in passing.

The food was amazing. Unfortunately I do not remember the Chefs name. Its a shame because he was the sweetest one. He mad an eggplant dish for us that was to die for. On one of the days when we were running short on time, we asked for sandwiches to be prepared. He apologized that he could not make the sandwich in the time we needed but offered to buy us sandwiches form a local store. So accommodating. My friend wanted to watch how he prepared the Chicken in the clay pot and he meet with her to try to coordinate this for her. Absolutely amazing.

The Riad was always clean. And it felt like staying with family. They asked how your day was. They recommended places to visit. Unbelievable.

Mahjoub. What an amazing time with him. He showed us around what felt like all of Marrakech. We went to an Argon oil factor. We had tea with a traditional Berber family. we had lunch at a traditional Berber family home. We went to the Atlas Mountains, we dressed in traditional Berber clothing. We got henna. We went spice shopping. We saw a waterfall. We did all of this at an unbelievable price. Mahjoub, was so intune with the culture of Marrakech. When every he showed us somewhere he gave us the background information and we were able to better appreciate Marrakech. He was so amazing that we got lost walking around, we called him, and he came to pick us up.

When I go back I will for sure do his desert tour.

It was just an amazing experience, and we owe it all to the staff. Pascel, Jawad, Sofian, Mahjoub, and the chef. We can not forget the cleaning staff.

Room Tip: Its like a bed and Breakfast so you can work with Pascel to get a different room. Our room was amazing.

We stayed here after finding this Riad on trip advisor. We chose it because we couldn't find one bad review about it. After staying here we see why nobody has said anything bad about it! The hosts are fantastic and so accommodating with anything you might need. They can easily hook you up with any tour you could possibly want. I recommend taking a private tour with Mahjoub if you have time!!! He is very knowledgable about all of Morocco and fun to spend the day with. We did his tour through the Agafay desert and Atlas mountains and really saw a lot of Morocco in that one day with him! Mahjoub is a great new friend to have! Also the chef Aziz makes the best food. We ate with him every night because it was so good. The free breakfast was INCREDIBLE by him as well. Crepes, breads, yogurt, jams, fresh orange juice... They do have alcohol for pretty cheap too which is hard to find in Marrakesh... Don't miss out on the hammam bath either at the hotel! We could not have had a better weekend because of all the great people we met at this Riad and we are so grateful for that. Rooms were nice and clean as well with great showers. I would do the airport transfer they offer though, because the streets can get a little confusing to navigate if its your first time in Marrakesh:)

This Riad deserves its 5/5 star ratings it has. A great break from the busy Medina and definitely check out the jacuzzi on the roof too! Whatever you could possibly need, the staff helps with just ask

Amazing little riad that will immerse you in Moroccan culture while giving you some peace from the hectic energy of the Medina. The rooms are spectacularly detailed and thoroughly clean from the sheets, washed regularly every day, to the brilliant white towels. Really friendly staff who are always available and will bend over backwards to make sure your stay in Marrakech is one to remember!. Would recommend to anyone!!.

Very lovely. And so quite (you would love that after hectic days in the Médina) Fantastic service. Sweet personal. Awesome beds. The food are also fine. Kids loved the jacuzzi (also the pool yet chilli in marts) And we had a perfect trip to the mountains with their associated tour company (ask for Mahjoub, see picture)
