Spent a week here in May, I really enjoyed it the Riad has a lovely dog and they are so helpful with planning tours and helping out with directions. What made our stay even better was Ellie and Wadi who really made us feel at home. One day we missed breakfast as we had to leave early for a tour and they prepared us dinner that night instead as well as a packed breakfast for the morning. The rooms were plenty big for 3 of us and we had clean towels., There's a lovely roof terrace where you can sit out and a pool also. its also only about 10-minute walk to the main square highly recommend for a stay :)
An excellent Riad with extremely helpful and welcoming staff. The place is very colourful and peaceful, plus it is in a great location on the outskirts of the main Médina but also walkable to the new city. The manager Abdul is great and offers his help whenever he can, along with a beautiful and friendly dog named Rose. An enjoyable stay at a very reasonable price. It’s not a polished package but it doesn’t need to be as it charms in other ways.
We reached Marrakech late afternoon. After our prior experiences with Riads in Tangier and Fes we found this place to be a stark contrast. The owner (Abdel) never bothered to contact us regarding our arrival. Our driver( a local) called him several times to get details of location. Could not be reached. Finally we did get in touch and Abdel came to parking (very close to the Riad). We reached the Riad and were made to wait for tea. Then he was went on to feed the birds, called the local help to show us our room. The room felt like a prison. It had no windows and was dirty. In fact the whole Riad along with the swimming pool is due for a good wash and cleaning. Travelling with 2 kids we were disappointed by the room allotted to us. In spite of me and my husband requesting a different room (only two other tourist were occupying a double room) he refused to budge. The room next door was empty. He insisted the room was booked and people were to arrive late that night. We saw no one there till we checked out.,However he did show us the map and explained way to the attractions. We decided to minimize our time at the Riad. We returned late and Abdel was waiting to take the payment. The women who work there barely understand English. There was no soap in the bathroom to shower (thankfully we had packed some). Next no hot water. We all had cold showers. To top it all the water in the bathroom stagnated and took a while to drain. So we had to wait between taking showers. Family and friends came knocking late hours. Next morning soon after breakfast we left. Highly relieved to be out of that place. Location is central and could be a great place but for the attitude. We shared our experience with our driver and he was in agreement about the attitude.
This Riad is very nice and they have friendly people. But watch out! When we left on January 26, the payment terminal did not work ~ we tried several times. In the end we had to pay in cash. When we came home the money was deducted from my bankaccount too. We corresponded for two months with Riad Wardata, but we did not get our money back. So they are not fair.
The staff were very helpful and very accomodating. I would recommend you to book airport transfer from them because it is difficult to find the riad specially when it is youre first time. Wasn't able to enjoy the pool because it was cold during the nights but every thing was nice! The riad also invited us some delicious cuscus (friday)! Yummy!
This was our family's first experience staying in a riad. Abdel (owner) and his staff took care of our needs during our entire stay! Anytime we had a need, they were responsive to help us out. Our rooms were clean and were a great fit for our family. Our room had separate rooms and two bathrooms. This was great for our family of four. We liked that we were in the medina and walking distance to a variety of eating options at the market or restaurants. Did not need to drive anywhere. Every time we saw Abdel (owner) he would always ask if everything was ok. Anytime we had a request either he or his staff would have it taken care of soon after!
Great and friendly staff, they go out of their way to make you feel welcome. Beautiful traditional riad, clean rooms and good breakfast - real oasis of peace in the middle of the exciting craziness that is the Medina of Marrakesh. Owner Abdel is a great guy and speaks good English. Make sure you book a driver through them to pick you up from the airport as the address is very difficult to find especially at night - cars cant access that part of the town so the driver needs to walk you to the door. If you travel in the wintertime prepare with a lot of warm clothes - it can get pretty chilly after the sun sets, even though most rooms have AC that you can use for heating and staff offers extra blankets if needed.
Really great location once you are more aware of your surroundings within the city - our cab driver from the airport couldn't find it initially, though. Really friendly hosts/owners - made us food, gave us detailed information as to how to get around, and were really, super lovely. Room was really comfortable and beautifully decorated, would definitely stay again!
Disaster living at there first time.Wifi for very short time during a week stay.zero customer service.its definitely not a 10min walk to jema el fena.more like 25mins walk.same breakfast all week,owner party till 3am every day of our holiday.wouldn't recommend to anyone especially families.
After reading all the positive reviews for this Riad we chose it for our family holiday in Marrakech. I will begin with a positive. The Riad is a very authentic and has many detailed features of a morrocan home, and that's it. During our 6 night stay here we had room service (cleaning, changing of bed sheets/towels on two occasions. Only after asking several times. There is a maid at the riad that cleans all day, but not our room. The toilet smells constantly of a sewer, the towels are old and washed so many times they are hard. We had one toilet roll and unless we requested more we were not given any more. When we were given more the maid acted like she was doing us a favour. The matteres we slept on was proberbly from the old Burben times. Very uncomfortable. The breakfast consisted of bread, two jams and some butter, one pastry each and if we were lucky some eggs. Warm fresh orange juice and something that the maid called coffee, which tasted disgusting. Wifi does not exist, the pool was always dirty. The owner clipped his nails straight onto the floor in front of me and did not collect his clippings. There is a maid that was helpful, a little overly and apologised for anything and everything all the time. Other than the owner no body speaks or understands any English, which is not helpful as he is hardly ever avalible. We were kept up all hours by the owner who invites his friends to the Riad for gathering every night. I would not recommend this Riad to anyone. It ruined our holiday.
