My boyfriend and I can only recommend the vanilla sma. When we arrived in Marrakesh we had some troubles with our taxi driver, with some "helpful" people who cheated on us. When we stumbled into the vanilla sma, Redouane, the manager, was our life safer. He helped us in every possible situation (booking tours, explaining us what to do in...

We had a wonderful stay at this magical Riad. Nelly has impeccable taste and everything was perfect! The calming white and creams are such a contrast to the colorful craziness of the souk. Tucked away on a little street, this place was such a treasure for us to find. The breakfast was so tasty, everything homemade and omelettes upon request....

We fell in love with Nelly, the riad's owner, who is the loveliest host! She sat down with us as soon as arrived and made us feel much more at ease (it is a crazy place when you first arrive!). Nelly got the map out, circled where we needed to go and tips for each place. She recommended an amazing...

I booked Riad Vanilla after reading all the wonderful reviews on here. I was travelling to Marrakech on my own and needed somewhere I would feel comfortable and safe. From the moment I booked I knew I was in good hands. Nelly, the owner was so friendly and went put of her way to make you feel welcome. Redouan the...

Our second visit to Riad Vanilla Sma at the end of October was just as deeply relaxing and enjoyable as the first a year ago. Charming and attentive staff make you feel completely spoilt and looked after at this hidden gem of a Riad. They always go above and beyond. Breakfast on the rooftop terrace was delicious. The bedroom decor...

This is a wonderful riad and we enjoyed every minute here. The owner was out of town, but manager Redouan took care of our every need. He gave us a good map of the city and gave us good ideas where to go and what to see. The breakfasts were delicious and the two dinners we had here were the...

We stayed at the Riad Vanilla Sma for 4 nights and we loved it! The owner, Nelly, was super friendly and helpful, so as all of the staff. We stayed there with our toddler (we knew a Riad might not be the best choice for a toddler) and we always felt that he was more than welcomed. We had a...

Riad was extremely nice, we had the choice of two rooms upon arrival. Nelly and her staff are all very nice and extremely accommodating. We would highly recommend this hotel however we do feel that it's better suited to couples rather than friends. This is because it is situated behind the souks and a lot of boys/men hang around on...

What a lovely experience we had, staying at the Beautiful Riad Vanilla Sma.. the staff couldn't have been more accommodating and friendly. We didn't have to worry about a thing.

We started our Morocco trip in Vanilla Sma, where the lovely Nelly took good care of us. She took the time to give us an introductory lesson on life in Marrakesh, which really helped us to enjoy the chaotic Souks in the Medina. She also shared her personal favourites when it comes to bars/restaurants. Without her intro, we probably would...
