A three day tour through the stunning Atlas Mountains and into the desert led us to this beautiful Riad in the Moroccan countryside, with the mountains in the background. My friend described it as the "hotel that keeps on giving". The setting, the building, the huge bedroom, breakfast by the beautiful pool, the garden and the friendliness of the manager...

The Riad is a real taste of Morocco.. The Manager Khalid was excellent, couldn't do enough for you.. Food was some of the best i have tasted.. Breakfast outside in front of the picturesque pool was the best way to wake up.. Both me and my partner cannot wait to return and bring our families..

Plus points :) Wonderful welcome from staff. Khalid the manager will do anything for you. Real feel of a qodwa in the middle of nowhere. Get to see 'real' Moroccan people with the few local villagers, especially the children. They sort of all trips and excursions for a good price. Beautiful setting and surrounding scenery with the mountains in view....

The staff are very friendly, welcoming and accommodating. The room we had was big, my daughter loved the size of it! The lamb Tagine was amaaaaazing! Like seriously. I'm used to having it with cous cous though, but the lamb was soo good I didn't really miss it all. The mountain views from the top of the Riad were beautiful....

I read the review of this road before I came here, but after staying in a "real" riad in Marrakech, this one was really disappointing. The bed was not comfortable and there is no wifi in the room, only in the lobby. Everyone goes to bed early and the all lights goes off, cause the staff are sleeping in the...

We were here in winter, so swimming in the pool was no option. Other than that, the hotel has no glamour. Our room was in a different building. Very noisy. The outside door couldn't be opened from the outside once it was closed. The shuttle to Marrakech is handy, but stops at 21pm. We were at a restaurant and had...

Riad Qodwa is great if you want a peacefull place near Marrakech. Despiste being 15min away, by car, from Marrakech, the Riad provides a daily shuttle. It has big rooms, very cleaned, with tv and air conditioning. It also have a swimming pool if you want to enjoy the sun. The staff is very nice, always ready to help. The...

My wife,daughter & me spent a fantastic week here & had one of our best relaxing holidays ever. This Riad is great & what you have to remember is that Riads are old large family houses converted into rented accommodation so there's only so much you can do with these types of properties. Now I read some of the less...

This hotel is so far off the beaten track, the taxi driver had to phone for directions. It is located 300 mtrs up a dirt track off the main road, downstairs it is well finished off, but when you get to bedrooms it's a different story, basic does not describe it, no shower curtain, no toiletries , clothes wardrobe located...

35-40 minutes away from Marrakech is the only drawback to this friendly, beautiful, and spacious oasis. Staff are tremendous. Ideal for a complete wedding party or convention group or just a holiday. The rooms are big! Staff is better at French than Engllish but staff a friendly and willing to serve. It is in outskirts of Marrakech. I wouldn't suggest...
