I had a marvelous stay at this Riad! I was in Marrakech for one week, and when you travel alone as a woman it's nice to know that you're being taken well care of at the place you stay. Cathy and her fantastic crew made me feel at home, here, only a short walk from Jaama El Fna. I can recommend this beautiful riad to anyone, if you're a familiy or travelling alone. Thank you Cathy! Insh'allah I'll be visiting you again soon! Massalama, Kjersti
Lovely Riad with a lovely staff! What a welcome calm a to come back to after the liveliness of the Souks and the Square. Loved all the staff Ali, Salah and Moona. Cathy gave helpful advice and made everything smooth. Delicious 5 course meal on New Years. Nice touches with incense, rose petals, chocolates and Ginger tea. Thanks all!
This Riad is an excellent location in the center of the old town of Marrakech. You are in the middle of the everything, all worthy spots are in walking distance. The neighborhood is totally safe, even during night it is no problem to walk on your own.
The breakfast is delicious, the rooms are clean, comfortable and offer all you need for a stay. The rooftop is pretty relaxing and and quiet. Service is excellent, the staff is always helpful and friendly. You can have some interesting conversations as they are all Moroccans and speak french, spanish or english. The only thing you should take care of is, if you leave the Riad and return late (e.g. after midnight) announce it beforehand. We waited almost an hour to get in and this just with luck and the help of a neighbour who knew the guys from the Riad. Everything else, a strong recommendation!
We have enjoyed our stay at Riad Dollar des sables.
Great welcome by Cathy, showing us on the map where to go, and not to go.
Comfortable and cozy rooms. Good location.
And above all, wonderful staff: Muna, Ali, Salah and the kind and hardworking housekeeper who's name I have forgotten. Many many thanks for your kind words, your friendly gestures, the great carr and wonderful food. You have made our stay unforgettable.
Meraviglioso riad nel cuore della Medina; l'alloggio è pulito, le persone cordiali, i pasti curati e ottimi. E' davvero un angolo di pace in una città molto vivace e talvolta stancante. Peccato non aver incontrato le proprietarie, che avrebbero dato quel valore aggiunto che generalmente colgo nelle strutture prenotate tramite Airbnb.
Wonderful riad in the medina, the accommodation is clean, the staff friendly, the meals excellent. It 's really a haven of peace in a very lively city. It was a pity not to met the owners, aspects that would add value and generally differentiate the structures booked through Airbnb.
I stayed here with my boyfriend and another couple mid-November this year and we all really have only good things to say about this Riad.
The location is fantastic and mere minutes from the main square Jemaa el Fna however when you're there it's peaceful and quiet and you feel tucked safely away from all the hustle and bustle.
Cathy and the rest of the staff were so welcoming and helpful, a few times when we wanted to go somewhere specific they walked us there so we didn't get lost which was very kind of them. Cathy equipped us with a free map on our first morning and marked out a load of places for us to visit which helped us plan our stay as we weren't there for long. The rooms are everything you want. A comfortable bed, a hot shower and really nicely decorated. The breakfasts are lovely and typically Moroccan.
We would definitely go back (in fact we're already planning when).
Some advice - we recommend that you arrange for airport pickup or to be met when you arrive in Marrakech (small extra cost for airport pickup) as it is difficult to find the first time. Very easy every time after that.
I would also warn any ladies travelling alone that the entrance is down a dark street. We always felt completely safe but I don't know if I would have if I was alone.
Un Riad, tipicamente marocchino, arredato con gusto, nel centro della Medina, nel centro dei suq, o suk che dir si voglia, a due passo da Jemaa el fna!
Sono stata lì con altre tre amiche per un we lungo, abbiamo preso due doppie (entrambe hanno il bagno in camera). Abbiamo ricevuto un'ottima accoglienza! Cathy ci ha dato preziosi suggerimenti, le persone della casa, davvero molto gentili e disponibili, ci hanno coccolato...dai te alla menta in terrazza alle ricche colazioni marocchine. Un oasi di pace e tranquillità nella vibrante (website hidden) lo consiglio!
Clean, cozy and quiet rooms, beautiful roof top terrace with traditional hamam, situated in the heart of Medina. We enjoyed our stay very much and are happy to recommend this wonderful place.
Great Riad. Close to the Jema el Fna easier to find than expected. Very friendly and helpfull staff. Unfortanetely we only stayed for a very short period so we did not have the time to enjoy all the amenities of the riad.
We are a family of four (parents and two teenage daughters) travelling in Europe and Morocco. Simply put, staying at Cathy's Riad is the best decision you can make if you are coming to Marrakech. Cathy was very responsive and provided us with a really good option with us taking adjoining rooms (which was also cheaper). We were met at the airport by a driver and then by Cathy at the square. Cathy could not have been more helpful in explaining things to us and providing very good advice. The Riad itself is lovely and welcoming. The bathrooms are just right and the rooms very comfortable. Cathy has done a marvellous job with training her team. They are all so friendly, warm and helpful. Mouna the chef is truly incredible! Her food Is outstanding and you must have at least one dinner in (in addition to being excellent, it also good value). The Riad is extremely well located and this makes it very easy to get around to all of the things that you would like to do. We also took two tours by taxi and these were organised by the Riad - they were very worthwhile. Overall we could not recommend Cathy's Riad more highly.
