We had an amazing time in Marrakech, staying in the Riad Africa. The greatest strength of Riad Africa is the staff. They are professional, caring, friendly and efficient at all times. I couldn't pick out any individual staff member as they were all superb. The Riad is comfortable and well decorated. The position is excellent - 5 minutes stroll from...

Loved the décor, it bit away from the main through fair, but still within walking distance from the markets. There are 2 pools which look amazing but very close to the rooms, so have to be a bit careful if you have children.

We had a great time, 7 nights in total. As a family of 4, we felt at home and Mohamed, Karim and Abdul have helped as much as they could. They've even managed to provide a high chair for our baby! Positive: - great location, lovely atmosphere, nice staff - the Riad's restaurant was very good with a good selection...

Having travelled extensively for nearly 50 years we are hard pressed to find a place which gave us a more friendly and pleasant stay. All of the staff were excellent and could not do enough to make our stay a success. The traditional fare was first class and exceeded our expectations. We choose to "eat in" at night and were...

Taxi booked- didn't turn up at airport. Manager insisted that we had booked dinner when, in booking via Booking.com, we obviously hadn't. Very very expensive. Turned into British prices whereas rooms are available for just 50 dirhams or less elsewhere. Barrowman wanted even more having been paid 100 dirhams for arrival trip. To top it all off we get an...

Stayed for 7 nights (4 + 3) in two different rooms with a three day break in between at the excellent sister hotel "The Kasbar Africa" in the High Atlas Mountains. Both stays at Riad Africa were on the ground floor. Our first room, the "Biwindi" was comfortable and the bed was spotlessly clean and very comfy. The room was...

Perfect location, really central. Very calm but in the middle of everything. Great rooftop area. Food great. Service spot on. Only slight down side was that the hot water seemed to run out quite quickly.. and the shower was a bit weak but would definitely return.

Our trip was delayed from the U.S. due to weather. Ryad Africa 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 pick us up at the airport.

Riad Africa has 16 spacious bedrooms and suites themed after Africa's most evocative and fabled destinations. Each room is equipped with air-conditioning, iPod docks, bath robes/slippers, a hair-dryer and personal safe. High speed wireless internet access is available throughout the riad.
