My son, wife and I had the opportunity to stay at the Riad El Ma for one evening, and what a wonderful experience it was. The Riad suggested local excursions, arranged for a driver to meet us at the train station and accompany us, found a knowledgeable and friendly English-speaking guide for a walking tour of Meknes, and prepared an...

Beautifully finished riad in the medina, with a courtyard, roof terrace and small pool. Helpful staff. We ate dinner here one night - recommended. They arranged a day trip to Volubilis and Moulay Idriss, also recommended.

I was the only guest and so I was allowed to upgrade my room at no cost. The rooms were lovely, terrace was very nice and staff were so friendly and helpful, even assisted me in buying some silk thread from a shop just across from the Riad. The mint tea and cookies on arrival were a lovely touch. I... More

We had two nights in Riad el Ma. Staff was attentive and friendly. Room was clean and comfortable. Location wasn't too bad. Pleasant experience without being exciting to any degree. The establishment could do with a bit more owner's love and attention.

This is a great riad in the heart of the Medina. We spent 5 nights in the red room, which is quite spacious and comfortable, with a view of the charming courtyard from the second floor. The staff, including both Aminas, were very kind and helpful and were always available to answer questions. The daily breakfast (included in the price)... More

We were there right after New Year. Very low season. We got really lucky as the hotel was empty so we got full attention. The onwer and the lady working there are tremendous.

Where to start? The riad is charming, beautifully cared for and supervised by the two hosts, each Amina. The younger Amina arranged for transportation, was generous with helpful advice, and even found time to escort us around the souk. We had arranged to have dinner at El Ma on our first evening, and it was so delicious that we took... More

I truly cant say enough about this amazing Riad and the hospitality we received from the Amina's. We booked this stay based on the reviews on Tripadvisor and we were not dissapointed. After ten days traveling around Morocco this small Oasis in the middle of the Meknes Medina was a very pleasant surprise. Amina made us a Lamb Tangine that... More
