The Riad El Ma in Meknes is fantastic. The beautiful rooms, courtyard and roof terrace go with a warm welcome from Emina and amazing Moroccan food. The situation could not be better - in the heart of Meknes' medina. Unlike other Moroccan cities, the medina here is navigable and hassle free. We have been to Morocco twice before but Meknes...

My son, wife and I had the opportunity to stay at the Riad El Ma for one evening, and what a wonderful experience it was. The Riad suggested local excursions, arranged for a driver to meet us at the train station and accompany us, found a knowledgeable and friendly English-speaking guide for a walking tour of Meknes, and prepared an...

Beautifully finished riad in the medina, with a courtyard, roof terrace and small pool. Helpful staff. We ate dinner here one night - recommended. They arranged a day trip to Volubilis and Moulay Idriss, also recommended.

I was the only guest and so I was allowed to upgrade my room at no cost. The rooms were lovely, terrace was very nice and staff were so friendly and helpful, even assisted me in buying some silk thread from a shop just across from the Riad. The mint tea and cookies on arrival were a lovely touch. I...

We had two nights in Riad el Ma. Staff was attentive and friendly. Room was clean and comfortable. Location wasn't too bad. Pleasant experience without being exciting to any degree. The establishment could do with a bit more owner's love and attention.

This is a great riad in the heart of the Medina. We spent 5 nights in the red room, which is quite spacious and comfortable, with a view of the charming courtyard from the second floor. The staff, including both Aminas, were very kind and helpful and were always available to answer questions. The daily breakfast (included in the price)...

We were there right after New Year. Very low season. We got really lucky as the hotel was empty so we got full attention. The onwer and the lady working there are tremendous. Very friendly and helpful. The owner did not speak English. We had the white suite which was great! The Riad/House is impressive and I think the terrace...

Where to start? The riad is charming, beautifully cared for and supervised by the two hosts, each Amina. The younger Amina arranged for transportation, was generous with helpful advice, and even found time to escort us around the souk. We had arranged to have dinner at El Ma on our first evening, and it was so delicious that we took...
