The riad is really really beautiful. The location is great. Fatima was extremely kind and cooked as a really delicious dinner. The hot tub wasn't working, which was a bit of a shame, but otherwise everything was great.

We had a lovely stay in Vincent's riad for a few days over New Year's Eve. The riad is gorgeous, clean and Fatima, the local contact person tended to our needs. Vincent was very helpful and welcoming, he kept a direct line of communication with us by email right from the beginning and answered all our questions very quickly. We opted to use Vincent's contact for airport pickup/drop off. This made the airport rides much easier (and cheaper than than the "tourist rate". The Riad itself is a great place to stay in the Old Town (5 minutes walk from the closest drivable road). The beds and pillows are comfortable and the rooms have AC/heating, which came in handy during the cold nights. All in all, a great place, definitely recommended!

We had a terrific stay in Vincent's riad. The riad is lovely. We especially enjoyed the roof terrace at the end of each day. It is only about a 3 minute walk from a busy Medina area, but is very quiet and private. Vincent was great at sending us all the information we needed for arrival. Fatima is happy to fix breakfast or dinner and is a delight! Mostapha was prompt and reliable and on call should we have any questions. We would look forward to staying here again and would recommend it to others.

Communication before and during our stay with Vincent was easy and he responded to any questions we had quickly and helped make our stay in Marrakech run as smoothly as possible. Vincent arranged an airport pick up for us by his friend Mustapha, which we would recommend. Tours of the wider Morocco area can be arranged with Mustapha also for the same price as what's offered in local travel agents. The Riad is a great place to stay if you're looking for a truly authentic Moroccan experience. It provides an oasis of calm in a chaotic, culture shocking medina, The Riad is excellent condition, very clean and comfortable. Although Fatima, the house maid, doesn't speak any english we still managed to communicate with her through our limited French and hand signals. Her food, although slightly more expensive than surrounding restaurants, is fantastic and was probably the best meal we ate the whole time we were in Morocco. Recommended to people seeking an authentic Moroccan experience with a splash of luxury. Thanks once again

Beth & Joe, First of all, thank you for our interactions and your respect of our place. You were great guests and we highly recomment you to any other Airbnb member. Thank you for this review that is so well-balanced in the description. We really like the "It provides an oasis of calm in a chaotic, culture shocking medina", which describes so well the place when you arrive in the Medina. Great to read you enjoyed your stay and happy to have made this possible with the help of Fatima & Mostafa ! Vincent & Maud

I really cannot recommend Vincent or his riad for your stay in Marrakech. We had an awful experience with him that ruined our weekend in the city. Whether due to malfunction or something done by the housekeeper the Jacuzzi overflowed, damaging the pump (which is sunk in a hole right next to the Jacuzzi, quite a baffling arrangement for something that shouldn't get wet). When we notified him of the problem he blamed us and demanded that we pay for the repairs, a 500 Euro expense. At one point he called the phone in the riad when I wasn't there and spent 20 minutes yelling at my wife, calling her stupid and endlessly berating her. It was extremely unprofessional and ungentlemanly of him. After this encounter we felt very unsafe in the riad and contemplated leaving even though we still had 2 days remaining on our reservation. Even after our stay ended he continued to harass us. I'm sure in response Vincent will claim that we are lying, that it was our fault, etc, etc. All I can say is that we honestly did not cause the damage and found Vincent to be disagreeable and unpleasant. With so many amazing places to stay in Marrakech I would strongly encourage you to look elsewhere for your accommodations.

I was expecting this kind of review from Dave, as he threatened us to write the worst possible review in case we would call upon the Airbnb warranty to get part of the damages he caused in our Riad reimbursed. And there you go. I will not make this answer personal, although I have my opinion about values such as honesty and taking responsibility for what you do. For the readers of this review, I will just mention some facts that give some perspective to what they just read. The Riad was damaged after Dave opened a water tap to add water to the Jacuzzi, just before leaving the place to enjoy a walk into the city. Happy enough, when Fatima, the housekeeper, came in some hours later, she closed it immediately to avoid causing even more damages. I quote Dave in his communication to us when notifying us :"We were trying to heat the jacuzi but I think we did something wrong and now there's water in the area where the pump is. I'm hoping we didn't do any damage." I took all actions to help to settle the problem as quickly and at the lowest cost possible. The plumber we know did come the same day, and the amount he asked to repair was 4500 Dirhams (405€). The two pumps did indeed stay under water due to the overflow and needed to get repaired (electrical part obviously). For those that are used to have a jacuzzi or swimming pool, it is quite logical to have the engines at lower level than the water, which explains the "hole" next to the jacuzzi, but in a separate and closed room. I had different phone calls and mails exchanged with Dave and his wife, to help them out and also to explain them the costs of the repair, at which they finally tried to bargain to pay half of the costs. If I would have any doubt that the problem was caused by the installation, I would not have asked them any euro cent! (both Fatima and our plumber identified the open water tap as being the cause of the issue). What Dave forgot to mention is that he first agreed to pay for the damages, but that he left the Riad after paying 2000 DHS (180€) to Fatima, which is a bit less than the half. What Dave called "he continued to harass us" is one single mail he got from me via Airbnb as they asked me to try settling this case directly before asking Airbnb to manage it. What Dave forgot to mention, is that he entered the Riad early in the morning the first day, without any additional costs, that he enjoyed the taxi service, the cooking of Fatima, and looking back at the review, I'm happy to see that there is nothing negative about the Riad, the privacy of renting a full house, the nice terrace, the two suites, the decoration and style … Despite this kind of experience or encounter, my wife and I, together with Fatima, will continue providing the best possible Marrakech experience to our guests, in line with the positive comments of the other travellers we were pleased to host.

Riad Alegria offers you everything. The Riad is beautifully decorated and very spacious which is exactly what you need after a day out in the Medina. Above the main dining area is a retractable sun roof which allows you to watch the stalks flying above and see the stars late at night. Its within the walls and only a ten minute walk to Jemaa el Fnaa square. Both Vincent and Fatima are readily available to answer any questions and offer advice on your stay. Bab Aylen is a more local area than touristic which does mean you have to be more sensitive to the Moroccan culture than staying in the new town, Gueliz but this allows you to experience real Marrakech. I lived in Marrakech for a short while and have seen many Riads and this really does stand out. Highly recommended.
