We had a great experience staying here, Mohammed and Ali were absolutely brilliant - they helped us feel very at home, arranged for an early breakfast before our flight home and assisted with taxis. The location of the Riad is fantastic and the cook is fantastic, (the breakfast cake is so delicious). Wouldn't hesitate to book this Riad again when...

We had a nice stay at the Riad Dollar des Sables. Although it is centered in the middle of the souks (markets), it is very calm and quiet. Our room on the first floor was nicely furnished and clean but rather dark. Breakfast was very good (fresh juice, coffee and tea, fruit, yoghurt and various baked goodies). The staff was...

The staff is the best thing about this riad. We loved them all. We stayed for 4 nights and it was a very nice stay. The souk is just outside the front door. We loved the life and hassle in the souk and it was an experience every time we went out. The riad is a bit run down but...

We stayed for 2 nights in this riad the first was in the uppermost suite which was very comfortable. Large and quiet. The second night we were moved to the first floor suite which was very uncomfortable.

My fiancee and I stayed at the Riad Dollar des Sables for one night during our short visit to Marrakesh. It is located in a quiet street 5 minutes from the big square of Jemaa el-fna. It is not very easy to find but as you get close just ask one of the many habibis hanging around the area and...

We stayed here for two nights during a brief visit to Marrakech. It's nestled away within the heart of Marrakech's hectic Medina close to the big square famous for traders exhibiting all kinds of wares - including those ushering you in with henna tattoos, orange juice, street food, snakes and monkeys. It's certainly not the easiest accommodation to find --...

As soon as you get inside the House , you will be touched by the enchanting atmosphere of Riad Dollar des Sables. The whole staff is welcoming you with a smile, and a special attention : coloured candles, fresh roses petals at your feet, delicate flavor in the air and oriental music..Just to make you feel in the mood and comfortable.Passing through the corridor, you will discover the peaceful courtyard and its fountain made of traditional mosaics.On its terrace, Riad Dollar des Sables offers a relaxing and traditional Hammam ( run with wood) and massages for a very good price;First, you will be invited to share with me (Cathy) a sweet refreshing mint tea and moroccan pastries.As I'm living all year long in Marrakesh since 2006, I know quite well the city and shall be happy to share with you my experience , giving you all the useful information and good adresses to enjoy your stay .We shall give you a map to sign the main monuments to visit or restaurants around.
