Riad les Orangers d'Alilia was an absolutely wonderful place to stay during our three nights in Marrakech. From the moment we were greeted at the door by owner, Joelle Sourbe, we knew we had made a superb decision in choosing this riad. Joelle was extremely helpful in every way a weary traveler could hope for. She and her staff prepared a wonderful, romantic candlelight dinner for us for our first night. The breakfasts that were included were outstanding. Our room had a wonderful veranda area with comfortable couches, with draperies one could close to get even more privacy, however, since our room was situated on a corner of the riad, we already had wonderful privacy. Most riad rooms are somewhat small by American standards but this room was very neat and clean, with daily service by the staff, and it met all of our needs, so size was not really a problem at all. Joelle has a nice rooftop terrace with lounge chairs, and she also has a pool on the ground floor.
I highly recommend this riad to anyone who travels to Marrakech. It is in the medina, and located such that it is easy to walk/take a taxi to most anywhere in the medina in a very short period of time. The prices are very reasonable and Joelle does a wonderful job of making you feel very much at home in her riad.More
