Recent guest reviews
We stayed in the suite and it was beautiful, luxurios, and romantic. people, everything was great. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because the towels were torn and the shower was very difficult to regulate to get hot water
Best Riad in Marrakech! From the minute we turned up the staff made us feel at home, the Riad its self was amazing! Very clean, tidy and beautiful, the facilities were great! Wifi was constantly fast with no issues, breakfast was the best we'd had in any Riad! The cleaners were always smiling and saying hello. Location was perfect and easy to find. The people who ran the Riad were so great, we took our 6 month old little girl who was constantly getting attention from all the staff. The Riad is very peaceful and quiet at night, during the day the roof terrace had its own very clean swimming pool with deck chairs and tables to eat your breakfast! We went to 4 other places before this Riad and we ended up staying here for 7 days because we felt very safe and relaxed! A++++ will definitely visit again!
First of all the staff always make the place good or bad and the staff here are all excellent- kind, helpful to a fault and efficient. We ate half-board for the week and each meal was different. Many different tagines, couscous etc and breakfast was always a little different -basically continental. The room was small and spotless. The pool was beautiful on the roof with a view over the Atlas Mountains- a little calm after some of the madness in Marrakech. The riad is close to everything but quiet, especially at night. We got good advice on places to visit and how to get there and the staff always seemed to have time to help. I speak reasonable French which helps in Marrakech so I am not sure how good the English spoken there is, which is the same all over the country. If I ever go back, I will stay at the Riad des Oliveres for sure.
Very friendly and helpful people - tried to help in all ways - from the help with the luggage to some guidelines about the city and where to go to in it for the shopping or sightseeing. The food was also very tasty - they cook everything right there, so you just order some time in advance, and that's it. The rooms are different - there are small ones as well as bigger ones, so it'll be your luck to get one of them, but even the smaller ones are nice.
Breakfast was really nice and slightly different each day. The staff cold not have been kinder with excellent english. The roof pool was a nice place to be. The rooms were good EXCEPT we had a scratchy polyester duvet and no top sheet we should have asked for another sheet
We arrived & as promised at the airport a taxi to meet us. A nice young man , the journey took us about 20 min. At the car park the lady from our Riad was waiting to greet us. ( thank goodness as we would never have found it) So we made our way & yes many motor bikes are along your way. Your safe just keep to the side. It's no where near as bad as the reviews on here have said. On reaching our Riad we were greeted with mint tea & the most beautiful biscuits I have ever tasted. They vanished in a second !! We were given information & helped about what ever questions we asked. Wonderful people who spent time with you. It felt very related & not rushed at all. We have arrived in out little home for a week. We love it. So near to everything all the tourist sites. Back & forth you can go & always return to our Riad for a chill out. They have just put a swimming pool on the roof terrace. It is a lovely area & we like to go to the roof terrace most afternoons. Ok it's not a 5 star hotel , so don't come expecting all that you would get at home. However you will get a warm welcome & lovely staff who will help you any way they can. Breakfast is lovely , fresh orange juice ( beautiful) not all like we get at home. Fresh baked bread, pancakes or cake. With jam , honey & cheese. Pots yogurt & as much fresh coffee as you like. No not a big banquet but indeed more than adequate . We brought English tea with us & we can ask anytime for hot water & milk. Nothing is a problem . The beds are clean & our room is cleaned every morning . I have to say they do a good job. What more can you ask for! This is my honest review as I see it. The reason I have written this review is that having been reading some of the reviews on here before I came I was getting a bit worried if it would be ok.
This riad is clean, peaceful, and with delicious food and mint tea. I agree with previous comments that this place truly feels like a home. The location is amazing and very safe. Just a stone's throw away from Bahia Palace (definitely worth the visit) and a great hammam experience (Hammam Ziani). The main square is just 10 mins away. The excursion offered to the Ouzoud falls is also definitely worth the trip. Our stay was made even more magical because of Mbarka, Mahmoud and Mohammad's company, advice and kind words- lovely lovely people. Thank you all!
We stayed one night at the riad as part of a 8 day tour. The lady in charge is very charming, the staff polite and attentive. One has to walk for about 10-15min through tiny alleys with dry donkey poop, household refuse and shops to get here. Its quite close to the market square. Beware of the crazy motorcyclists who whizz past you on these roads! The room (Fez) was very small and basic, the rugs were thread bare and looked dusty. The shower stall drainage was poor and we showered standing in the water we bathed in. My friend's bathroom had a leak which flooded her bed room. The food was basic but tasty. The man in charged asked us to return before mid night as its unsafe and he did not want to be up waiting for us past mid night. However, we did not feel any danger walking down the alleys at 12.15am. Not the Riad experience I expected, but probably a good stay if on a budget.
The rooms are clean and comfortable and despite our first impression when we were looking at a map the Riad is easy to find. What is exceptional about this riad is the staff. We felt welcome the first minute we arrived. It was always like coming back home after our walking tours through the Medina. We can definitely recommend this Riad.
Great little haven of tranquility to escape the madness of the Marrakech medina. Friendly staff make you feel like a house guest more than a hotel guest and it's a great building to explore. Covenient location for many of the main attractions of the medina.
