We had the most amazing stay at the Riad Emberiza over the Christmas period, The riad itself is beautifully resorted and the little touches make all the difference. Alexandra and her team will make your stay extra special from arranging guides and drivers to making sure you never get lost to restaurant bookings but not to mention their own restaurant. We dined in 2 nights as it was so good their chef was amazing they were our best meals during our travels around Morocco. We will definitely be back and can highly recommend

The unfortunately absent proprietor, Alexandra, has created a true paradise with this beautifully appointed Riad in the Medina. Expansive courtyard evokes a truly palatial setting of peace and tranquility. Chic decor and lovely staff provide for a winning experience! Can’t wait to return and spend more time in this Out of this World place!

The Riad Emberiza Sahari is one of the most beautiful places I've ever stayed at. After a busy day touring Marrakech it was great to escape the hustle and bustle of the city and relax in the quiet and peace of this Riad, whether in our lovely, comfortable rooms or sipping a drink on the roof top terrace. Alexandra, the owner, couldn't have been more hospitable and welcoming. Her staff are outstanding. When we said we were getting a bit tired of tagines the chef made a special dinner for the 5 of us. In fact, after tasting his cooking, we cancelled our restaurant reservations! All together it was a marvellous experience and I can't recommend Riad Emberizo Sahari enough.

Great few days in a real home away from home in the heart of the Medina. Alexandra, the Australian hostess and her team made us discovered little germs outside the mainstream. We had a private dinner one evening and the rest of our stay had dinner outside following Alexandra's recommendations. Again all were great! The room are very cozy and romantic. Our room had a fireplace which was nice for the cold evening of January. We will be back!!

We had a wonderful two-night stay at this delightful and well-located riad! The riad is beautiful, with a fantastic rooftop terrace to enjoy the view. Despite the chaos outside from the medina, the riad is calm, quiet, and peaceful. The location is terrific--we were able to walk to both Le Jardin Majorelle and Jemaa el-Fna. The rooms are lovely and the bathrooms are spacious. The staff provided extra space heaters so both the rooms and bathrooms were warm and cozy. The staff was hands-down the best part of our visit. Everyone was incredibly nice, friendly, and attentive, and went out of their way to help us. Omar always ensured we had good directions to the sites. The food was also fantastic--we enjoyed a traditional Moroccan dinner at the riad one night in addition to breakfast both mornings. Although we did not have a chance to meet Alexandra, she checked in regularly and was very responsive to all our needs and inquiries. We hope to meet her during a future visit and are happy to recommend Riad Emberiza Sahari!
