Stayed for a week in late March at this beautiful riad and cannot say enough great things for the experience. Your first experience as you approach from the car park/taxi stand 1 block away is a bit of trepidation as you walk down the narrow alley leading to the riad, ducking under low arches over the cobblestone. (You will quickly...

Just home from a week long stay in Maison Africa (part of the Riad Africa group) This 4 bed private house (sleeps approx 10) was more than sufficient for our family of 5. 2 adults, 3 teenagers. The house is situated at the edge of the medinas and offers pure quietness/calmness once you close your front door. There is good...

This was originally mistakenly posted on Riad Africa's site. Our trip was delayed from the U.S. due to weather. Ryad Arabia had booked us for two days and purchased train tickets to Fes. Mohamed was wonderful and ended up going to the train station twice to get our train tickets sorted. Once before we ever arrived. Mohamed sent someone to...

Having the whole Maison to our selves was excellent. The children enjoyed the plunge pool. They also loved helping Muhammad get breakfast each morning. Muhammad was excellent at serving breakfast and the Dinner meal on our first night. This dinner was cooked by the local lady who prepared an excellent meal. The three ensuite bedrooms were large and very comfortable...

We originally rented another Riad for the 5 of us but was given Maison Africa instead on arrival. We were not so convinced of the arrangement at the beginning but liked our stay for the privacy and the amazing hospitality that the house manager Mohamed has shown. The ladies cooked marvellous and delicious private dinner! The place is charming with...

Maison Africa could do a gluten free dinner and breakfast upon request. They had very helpful staff that went out of their way to make sure that we had everything we needed. Although the cook could speak very little english she helped us every night with the fire. The Maison is very close to the Souks and has a terrace...

I spent a few days in Marrakech and was lucky enough to find this beautiful riad. Located in an area very close to everything you would want in the Medina and just a short walk away from Le Jardin, a celebrity hotspot in Marrakech. Great fun!

Good location on the Edge of the Souks and lovely quiet property. View over the Souks is ok but not quite as I expected. The Souks are covered with "tin" roof so do look a bit ramshackle (not the fault of the property) so if we ever went again I wouldn't worry about seeing over the souks. The property is...

“We booked the whole Riad for a family of 4 - allowed both children to have their own space to relax and read - like most people we lead busy lives at home, so the opportunity to lounge about all afternoon and read and snooze has been lovely. The roof terrace in summer is gorgeous in the evenings - listening to the muezzin calling to prayer - fabulous.”
