I truly cant say enough about this amazing Riad and the hospitality we received from the Amina's. We booked this stay based on the reviews on Tripadvisor and we were not dissapointed. After ten days traveling around Morocco this small Oasis in the middle of the Meknes Medina was a very pleasant surprise. Amina made us a Lamb Tangine that...

We found El Ma on Tripadvisor and booked the White Suite which had its own staircase and was large, private and very comfortable. For a riad room, we had lots of windows, a large sofa, a great deal of storage space, bedside tables and shelves with reading lights and a large bathroom with a shower, lots of hot water and...

You positive feedback has really touched us deeply. We always try to put emphasis on the comfort of our clients and so that they can feel like home. I'm glad you enjoyed the cooking. As you experienced, we choose fresh products and the twos Aminas cook in a familial spirit : we think that makes the difference ! We expect...

Morocco is a magical place and if you, like us, want to immerse yourself in the city-within-the-city, the médinas of the country where you will find the still-thriving communities of craftspeople, vegetable merchants, meat markets, restaurants, cafes, and mosques, And, it is within this labyrinth of streets, passageways, and shops that you will thread your way to Riad El Ma,...

When I first entered the Riad, I felt in love with it. It is exactly how I imagined a beautiful Moroccan house looks like. The mosaic decoration, the small fountain, and the lemon trees. And it has a stunning rooftop where me and my friend spent every evening during our stay. And its staffs, especially Amina, were very friendly and...

From the moment I stepped into Riad El Ma, I knew that something special was in store. Amina, the proprietor, clearly puts love and care into her beautiful riad. My friends and I ate delicious food, and took in the sunset on her well manicured roof deck. I would recommend this place to anyone, and I sincerely hope to return!...

From the moment the friendly Amina opened the door, to the fantastic interiors, stunning rooftop terrace & pool, generous breakfast & sound advice, we had a great time! Kamal, the taxi driver recommended by the Riad, who drove us to nearby attractions, was a good choice! Thanks Amina & Habiba for the splendid service. I can't be back, but hopefully...

The riad is very beautiful and well taken care of, in a location easy to find based on the little map one gets with the email. The room we had (red) is spacious, tastefully decorated and clean - with a nice bathroom. The only small detail I did not like were the shabby towels. Clean - but looking like their...

Enjoyed a one night stay at this charming riad in the red room. Amina was helpful and showed us around the medina and made a helpful recommendation on where to have dinner. It was a nice stay and felt it was worthwhile to spend the night in Meknes.

Arriving after dark at the heavy wooden door of Riad El Ma in a narrow lane in the Meknes medina, we weren’t entirely certain what lay beyond. But from the first warm welcome, we knew that this was the perfect place to be in Meknes. We had the red room on the first floor - very spacious for two with...
