I've spent a week with my wife and 2 young daughters (1 and 4 yo). Roma was big enough to accommodate the 4 of us. The staff is very attentive and always willing to help. The heated pool is small but big enough for our girls to have plenty of fun. Location is great being 5 min walk from square...

Once you have found your way through the labyrinth of Marrakech to its front door, this Riad is very well located near the main square, and has two pleasant interior courtyards with pools (more of that later). We stayed here on two separate occasions, and the rooms around the second (smaller) courtyard are fine. The main (larger) courtyard is used...

Very beautiful riad close to the main square. Daily manager, Tim, is very friendly and charming. He has a lot of useful tips for local life and we felt very welcome. Rooms are small and cool, which is good most of the year. Food was freshly made and with good taste. Breakfast was a little simple and could benefit from...

We had an amazing time in Marrakech, staying in the Riad Africa. The greatest strength of Riad Africa is the staff. They are professional, caring, friendly and efficient at all times. I couldn't pick out any individual staff member as they were all superb. The Riad is comfortable and well decorated. The position is excellent - 5 minutes stroll from...

Loved the décor, it bit away from the main through fair, but still within walking distance from the markets. There are 2 pools which look amazing but very close to the rooms, so have to be a bit careful if you have children.

We had a great time, 7 nights in total. As a family of 4, we felt at home and Mohamed, Karim and Abdul have helped as much as they could. They've even managed to provide a high chair for our baby! Positive: - great location, lovely atmosphere, nice staff - the Riad's restaurant was very good with a good selection...

Having travelled extensively for nearly 50 years we are hard pressed to find a place which gave us a more friendly and pleasant stay. All of the staff were excellent and could not do enough to make our stay a success. The traditional fare was first class and exceeded our expectations. We choose to "eat in" at night and were...

Beautiful refurbished first category guesthouse hotel in heart of Marrakech medina with large dipping pool and tropical roof garden. English-Dutch owned and locally managed. Riad Africa is very centrally located in a safe and peaceful residential neighbourhood in the Riad Zitoun Lakdim area of the Medina. Riad Africa has 16 spacious bedrooms and suites themed after Africa's most evocative and fabled destinations. Each room is equipped with air-conditioning, iPod docks, bath robes/slippers, a hair-dryer and personal safe. High speed wireless internet access is available throughout the riad. Guests can cool off in and relax around one of the largest plunge pools in the medina. A tranquil palm-filled courtyard, a comfortable dining room/salon, a massage room, heated plunge pool, juice bar and private roof garden/terrace offer a choice of public areas in which to unwind. A range of health and beauty treatments are available including a massage/treatment room and nearby hammam. Offering easy access (just a 2 minute walk from the taxi stand and bank) it takes just 5 minutes to walk to the bustling Djemaa el Fna square along the popular/easy to navigate Riad Zitoun Lakdim street. An excellent choice of local restaurants, cafes and shops is located within a 5 minute radius on foot, including the highly rated and atmospheric Kosybar.
