“Resting in an Oasis”
Reviewed 30 October 2012

We spent three nights in the riad and have enjoyed every minute of it. It felt like an oasis so close to Djemaa el Fna - the hub of Marrakech. We were very happy to have found a riad so close to the square and since it is just round the corner of a museum it is very easy to find your way back, even at night. On the first evening we had booked the hamam and since it was our first time ever - were utterly surprised by this wonderful experience and the hot water clouds which lulled us into a cozy and relaxed mind. Afterwards we could recline and chill on the roof terrace while waiting for the massage. We liked the room and bed very much, especially the bathroom which used the small space perfectly with its pleasant design and organisation of it. Corinne, the French owner, treated us more like friends than guests and we felt more than welcomed. She organised dinner reservations for us and the restaurants she recommended were very well chosen. She had even organised that the two of us together with two other guests from the riad (also two women) were accompanied back to the riad through the darkness!
Although the riad is very small we did not feel bothered by other guests. Corinne's staff was ever so friendly and helpful. We would always come back and stay with Corinne.

We arrived into Marrakech airport and were met and transported in a comfortable people carrier to the Riad. On arrival to the riad we were greeted by the owner Corrine and her staff and shown to around the beautiful serene riad and to our excellent room, the Nirvana suite. Prior to arrival I had been in contact with Corrine by email and had prebooked our evening meal in the riad. After a quick freshen up we ate our dinner in the riad, the food was exceptional and served to us by Tariq in the best possible manner. Khadija the riad in house cook had made a beautiful meal and this started our holiday off to a fantastic start. Corrine was so kind enough to spend time with us suggesting restaurants for lunch and dinner and advising us on things to do in Marrakech, This was our first, and will not be our last visit to Marrakech and I think that our overall experience of the city was made so much more memorable and special due to the choice of our accommodation and the people that work there.
The riad is very clean and the design and style is beautiful. The atmosphere is calm and relaxing and the music playlist within the bedrooms and around the riad is amazing to make you feel so tranquil and peaceful. Our room was exceptionally comfortable and cleaned above and beyond our expectations every day by Kenza. Breakfast was superb, I loved the different variations every day so fresh and tasty. During the day Simo was at the riad to attend to anything you needed.
A must do is to experience the hammam at the riad, followed by a massage, my skin has never felt so clean and soft!!
Every recommendation by Corrine was perfect and she arranged and booked tables at restaurants and taxis or guidance to locations.
Our last night was also spent in the riad where we again had a fanatastic meal with Champagne which finished our holiday off perfectly.
Overall we both had an amazing time in Marrakech, it is an amazing interesting place with fantastic people, great food, great weather and amazing memories.
We have travelled to many places all over Europe and USA, ate in many restaurants and Riad Cocoon in Marrakech is up there with the best.
We spent a week in the riad but wished we could have stayed for a fortnight!!
Looking forward to rebooking there soon.
Thanks to Corrine, Khadija, Kenza, Simo and Tariq.

Myself and my boyfriend had a fabulous stay in Riad Cocoon, everything from the decor, to the rooms to the staff was fantastic.
Corinne, the owner, was helpful from the minute we walked in. We were welcomed with a pot of Moroccan tea and some home made treats which was a welcome suprise after a long journey. Corinne asked us what we had planned and gave us some suggestions of where was best to go and what was interesting to see and the next morning she handed us a suggested itinerary with all the details we needed.
Dinner on the first night was a traditional Moroccan tagine, which again, was superb. The service of the staff was friendly, professional and not at all overbearing.
The location of this Riad is also perfect, a 2 minute walk and you are amongst the souks and another 5 minutes you are at the main square, however it is still peaceful and hidden away from the hustle & bustle of life in Marrakech!
We loved our stay so much, we ditched our idea of staying elsewhere for our last 2 nights and re-booked Riad Cocoon! Enjoy...

Me and my girlfriend stayed here and it was the perfect place for a couple who had never been to Marrakech!

Located in the heart of the medina this Riad is tucked away and so you get the all the quiet and tranquility that you could want, but then still a 30 second walk to all the bustle and cool atmosphere of Marrakech.

The rooms are incredible, the food is delicious and the staff are so warm and welcoming. Corinne was also amazingly helpful in both helping us to arrange our stay but also in advising us on how best to spend out time in Morocco. She also always found time to sit and chat with us or share a drink up on the terrace.

We stayed in The White Album room but they are all really nice, with authentic touches mixed with absolute luxury.

Overall we couldn't recommend this Riad enough and will definitely be going back!

Room Tip: You can't really go wrong but the White Album and Purple Haze are really cool, or choose the Nir...

My friend and I took our time searching for a nice place to stay right in the Medina so we finally chose the riad cocoon due to the excellent ratings - we were not to be dissapointed! The riad is a modern interpretation of an oriental style riad. It has five guest rooms in total, so it's rather on the small side. It is located very close to the souks so that we were able to see all the sites in the Medina by foot. We really loved the individually composed music compilations in our room and in the common areas, by which you can't help but relax and enjoy! Corinne, the owner and her staff were very friendly and absolutly forthcoming to fulfill all our wishes. They even made us dinner one night when we were just too tired to go out to eat, though usually you need to order at least a day in advance. They are also very helpful when it comes to itineraries on what to see, nice places to eat or book trips. Our room was most beautiful, since it was located on the very top and no one else was staying in the riad at the time we had the roof terrace all to ourselves. Overall, I'd absolutely recommend staying there. The only improvable in my opinion would be the hard mattress, which I could not get a good nights sleep on.
