We were in a group consisting of two couples, arriving on Sunday 12th February and departed on Wednesday 15th February. Riad Ilayka arranged our transport from the airport, which I recommend as cars can only take you to the Medina and you then walk to the Riad for approximately ten minutes. Abdul met us and walked us to our wonderful...

We stayed in this beautiful riad - an oasis full of charm and character away from the bustle of Marrakesh. The staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly and we were even treated to canapés and wine to celebrate our marriage. The rooms are delightful (though dark) with all sorts of interesting artefacts. A memorable venue which we would thoroughly recommend!

By far if not the best than one of the best hotel (riad) experiences I've had. The riad is absolutely stunning. Unbelievable attention to detail. Gorgeous Moroccan/Indian inspired decor. Plenty of places to duck into to read a book between the courtyard, the sun chairs and the rooftop gazebo. Rooms were beautiful and cleaned immaculately. So relaxing. Above everything were...

It is not easy to find the riad, but they send someone to fetched us at the square and helped us to carry our luggages. The people there were super nice and service was very good. We stayed in one of the suite and it was as nice as the picture we saw at the website.

After walking through the main square and souk, accompanied by a member of staff, then little narrow alleyways, you get to a door in the wall. On stepping through you enter another World.
