You get everything you need - from a strong A/C to a big bathroom with a well running shower. The common area of this riad with only 4 rooms is very... More

The friendliest, most welcoming and unique place we've ever stayed. Mohammed and Hammed couldn't have been better hosts! Highly recommend you stay here if you come to Marrakech....right in the heart of the medina with easy access to the traditional Moroccan culture.

Dear Amstraveler, Let me introduce myself, I'm David Palau, owner of the Riad. I know giving my last name to the Riad is not very original. I assure you it wasn't my idea but it works and it seems people like it. We never had anyone relating it with the islands you mention. In fact, Palau is translated as "Palace"... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Riad Palau is the result of Sonia and Josep Maria's dream, a couple from northern Spain who always had the illusion of owning a Riad and manage it as a Guest House in the medina of Marrakech. Riad Palau is an ancient small palace placed in the heart of one of the most popular neighborhoods of Marrakesh. Two years of restoration held by the best artisans in the medina and the experience and help of our friends Manel and David guarantee that your stay in Riad Palau and in the "Red City" won't be easy to forget. ... more   less
