We stayed in Riad Samsara during our honeymoon. The owner, Jacqueline was so welcoming and the housemanager so intens helpfull with showing us around and giving us tips and tricks. The food made by our personal chef was so good and very Maroccan. I think Marrakech is not my city because of its hustleing. Being in the quiet Riad Samsara...

My husband and I can't say enough good things about this wonderful riad. The setting, the food, the style-- everything was perfect. We slept wonderfully to boot. Jacqueline is the ideal host: welcoming and brimming with enthusiasm and information. Thank you, Jacqueline.

My boyfriend and I spent the most wonderful few days at Riad Samsara in May. Isabelle and Jacqueline were extremely welcoming and informative, and Milouda was a fabulous cook. The rooms were beautifully appointed and the rooftop terrace was lovely. I highly recommend it!

This riad is beautiful, with spacious rooms, a nice rooftarras and great service. The location is on the nord side of the medina, which is close to everything. I can be a bit hard to find your way back, ask in the riad they will show you the way. Good breakfast which you can have on the terras.
