My wife and I spent a week at Mariana celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary. We had a wonderful welcome and stay - Philippe, Fatimah and Abdou catering to our every need. The rooms are very comfortable and the riad well appointed. Fatimah cooks the most amazing traditional Moroccan food and I would recommend taking the cooking class on offer. Abdou... More

Mariana is a delight. It is a surprise when you go through an ordinary door to find a beautiful plunge pool, cool rooms and calmness. The place was charming and the ownership very friendly. I highly recommend food and drinks on the roof top. And it's walking distance from the main plaza, which made for easy exploring.

I stayed in Riad Mariana as a group of 3 girls (24 y/o) and cannot recommend it highly enough! It was great value for money, with standards inside far higher than we expected!

Marrakech is an unique place which I would recommend everyone visit once in their life. It's a west meets Arab/African type of place, leaning more to the latter. Though it's a site to see, at first you'll feel the chaos that is the medina. Narrow streets with merchants lined on each side, people walking through, scooters and motorized bicycles going... More

I stayed 4 nights in this cute riad. It is very quiet and located about 5-10 minute walk from the main square. The room was very nice with a big bathroom and quiet AC.

Wow! What else can I say to sum up this wonderful place than wow! Well, I'll try and elaborate a little.
