“Excellent riad for peace and quiet”
Reviewed 22 February 2014

Have just returned from a wonderful stay at the riad Abracadara with my two daughters, aged 13 and 17. We were looked after splendidly and the staff could not have been more helpful. The riad is tucked away down a side street just off the big square so really close to all the action but still very peaceful and quiet. Lovely roof terrace with a small pool and great views.

Room Tip: We had the suite merlin on the ground floor which was fine. I think i missed the windows in the su...

We were met just off the town square which was absolutely chaotic, followed our contact through the bedlam, narrow streets & market until we came to an innocuous door. Open sesame!! Bruno Olivier, the very handsome & charming Spanish owner greated us warmly and it was perfect from there. Lovely room, fab breakfasts on the roof terrace, lovely cozy fire at night and very helpful staff. They organized a great guide, restaurants & massages. And when we got lost (very easy to do) they sent a staff member to retrieve us! It was too cold (a blessing) to use the pool but we loved a sunset drink on the terrace. The only negative, and it was small, is due to the rustic decor with old timber doors & windows it could be a little noisy. We loved our stay.

Positive : Nice decorated, we 've got a lot of interesting and practical information of things to see in marrakesh, from the owner Ines. Also good service from the staff of the riad. Kind serving at breakfast and at diner. Bathroom with beautiful design and clean towels, bathrobes, and even personal slippers. The bedroom is not so big, but the bed is perfect and with nice white sheets. Little negative points for us : there is à smell in the riad that we didn't rally like. Maybe it''s because of the smell you have in all the medina? Also the swimming pool had a not so nice odor, but was for the rest nice to cool down à bit. The curtains, and overall in the riad where you have seats it looked all à bit less clean, because of the stains everywhere. To end positive : breakfast was delicious with fresh orange juice and home made speciality of the house. In the morning you wake up early with the imam next to your ears, but this you van get used to. It is à great advantage if you want to visit the souks and the medina to choose this riad because it is near to all this.

We stayed here for 2 nights having had a terrible experience at another riad around the corner when we were badly scammed by a rather unpleasant individual. This riad helped us sort out the issues which then enabled us to have a very relaxing and enjoyable time in marrakech! The rooms were great - very clean, the beds comfortable and all the staff were so helpful. Thank you so much!

My daughter and I recently stayed at Riad Abracadabra and loved everything about it. The service is very personalized. Hicham and his team made certain that we had dinner reservations where we wanted to go and helped us to plan other activities. The food at the hotel is excellent and the rooms are very comfortable and homey. It was a wonderful stay. I would definitely choose Riad Abracadabra on my next visit.

This charming, lovely riad is beautiful decorated, has 7 rooms, a central space with soft couches and a little fountain and a roof terrace with a small pool, sun beds and breakfast facilities. The staff is very helpful, and very concerned, that their guests are pleased. The road is placed very centrally close to the main square Jamaa el Fna, but you hear no other sounds from the city than when there is call for prayer. The riad might consider having changed the doors to the rooms as every sound from the rest of the house can be heard very vividly. Not good when people are returning during the night, coming to work early in the morning or sitting in the central room talking. The riad offers also dinner, but stay with the very fine breakfast, as dinner is not worth while having (the cook is not a very skilled on).
Be aware that if you do not pay cash at check out, there will be a fee of 3,5% (!) We did not know....
