This is a wonderful place. We had a great room on the premiere etage right next to a pleasant canopied area which almost like our own private place for outdoor relaxation. And the rooftop terrace was stunning. My son and I climbed the spiral staircase to the cupola several times to take advantage of the superb view of the city...

Had the most amazing time in the Riad Ilayka. We felt like royalty from the moment we arrived. Nothing was too much trouble. Such friendly staff.

This is a typical Riad. Lovely rooms decorated in traditional style. The food was very good and freshly made. The property has a spa (which we did not try) but other guests did. The owner was very friendly and transfers to and from the airport were arranged with ease. There is absolutely no problem staying inside the souk and we...

The last night of our trip to Morocco was spend at this hotel which is located through a maze of little alleyways that on arrival seemed daunting to find but we were greeted by a wonderful oasis of calm behind the front door. The rooms are comfortable and very medieval in decour and there is a great roof garden with...

We were quite concerned by the recent logs about money missing from the safe but we were assured by the Riad Proprietor before leaving for Marrakech that they were sure of their innocence and were keen to prove it. To totally remove any lingering concerns we had, we were given the only master key to the room safe. This we...

I have recently come back from a weeks holiday from Marrakech and stopped at Riad Ilayka. It is a very beautiful place which is why we selected it.

These accusations are particularly serious and are not based on any evidence. They are not critical for services or quality of an establishment but there more serious : THEFT.

What a beautiful Riad. We have just returned from a 7 day stay there. We booked it after reading some wonderful reviews and it did not disappoint.

Stunning Riad with lovely welcoming and friendly staff. Located just down a short alley from the Souk and close enough for you to be in the heart of the city and in the main square in no time.

Nadia and her lovely staff went out of their way to make our stay a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Nothing was too much trouble from advising on and booking day trips, to making us feel pampered and relaxed whilst at the riad.
