Al Riad Inou
Ranked #568 of 1,159 Marrakech B&B and Inns
Reviewed 28 April 2014

Our stay at this Riad was just perfect! The Riad was beautiful itself, the view of the Atlas Mountains was incredible and the host Alain was very friendly and went out of his way to help us, as though we were personal guests in his own home. Halima's food was divine, and she made the best Moroccan couscous I have ever had despite it being the first ever vegetarian one she had made in her life! She went out of her way to cater to our dietary requirements (vegetarian), and if we ever asked for any food item she made sure it was on the shopping list for the next day, which was really appreciated. We also really enjoyed the Hammam at this Riad. The only criticism would be that we felt they could have cleaned the bathroom and rooms daily, but perhaps they wanted to leave us to relax and not disturb us! All in all, I would recommend this to anyone who wants a relaxed trip just out of Marrakech rather than staying within the hustle and bustle.

This riad is about 25km away from
The city of Marrakech. It has fabulous views of the Atlas Mountains and Alain the owner is an amazing host who makes you feel so welcome at his riad. He is friendly funny and very helpful. Literally his house is your house. There is no set time for breakfast,lunch or dinner it is prepared to your timings. Halima is an amazing chef! And she can make anything you want! From Italian to Moroccan dishes. We had a super time at this riad! The service is fabulous even at 11 pm when asked for tea - no issues everyone is always smiling and willing to help!

I have never bothered writing a review about the places I have been to but this time I have to because this is one of the best places I have ever been! We stayed one night and we were the only guests due to Ramadan but Alain made us feel very welcome by showing us around the whole riad and the rooms are all incredibly beautiful so you really can't go wrong! Our room had direct access to the swimming pool ( where we had a nice swim in company of a friendly black Labrador!) and a very nice home made dinner was served in the garden for us. It was followed by a long chat with Alain in front of the traditional mint tea! Merci beaucoup, Alain, pour cette conversation tres interessante en Francais!!! Maria
P.s. Alain also has some beautiful horses, it might be worth going for a ride in the countryside!

I dont usually write reviews on places I have stayed but this place is paradise!

The rooms are really comfortable, the location is perfect with a fantastic view of the mountains and the food is excellent.

Like any place you stay in - the surroundings can be luxurious even sumptious but many fall down by the people running the establishment in question. Not so Riadinou everyone without exception is there to ensure your stay is a memorable one for the right reasons.

They say never go back to where you had a great time as you will only be disappointed - well this was my second time and just as good as the first. My compliments to Alain, Halima and the rest of the people at the Riad. Fantastic service and yet again another great stay in Morocco.

This place truly is a gem. We arrived at Marrakech airport and were met by Youssef who took us back to the hotel. The hotel is a little way out of the city and we were driving along, further out of town and I was wondering where on earth we were going to end up. We turned down a dirt road and I began to worry. But when we went through the gates at the end of the road we saw the Riad. The place is simply incredible.

We were met by Alain, the owner, he speaks very little English but we managed to communicate and he was so welcoming and warm, and he showed us around his beautiful house. The room was exceptional and classy, with a private terrace overlooking the wonderful swimming pools and the Atlas mountains. We ate most of our meals at the Riad and the food was great, the staff were all so friendly and kind. Youssef took us in to Marrakech when we wanted, and also took us up to the mountains to the waterfalls and drove us almost to the top of the range. The pool was unbelievable, surrounded by four poster beds and sun loungers.

I haven't got a single bad word to say about the place and cannot recommend highly enough. If you know a little French it would probably help, but my two friends and I only knew a few words and we got by just fine, the staff were very patient with us. I would also mention, staying outside of the city is a big bonus in my opinion. After experiencing the craziness of the city, while it was certainly an experience to visit, staying in the madness would have been too much. The Riad was so serene, beautiful and peaceful and gave us the opportunity to have a perfect mix of the culture of the city, while still being able to relax and enjoy being away.

Room Tip: We stayed in one of the royal suites, and waking up and walking onto the private terrace overlooking...
