Reviewed 28 September 2012 via mobile

We had a great time staying at this villa, it was so peaceful and beautiful, plus the attention to detail against it's '20s design was amazing - even the teapots were art deco!
The thing that stood out for us the most though was the helpfulness and the friendliness of the staff there. They couldn't do enough to help us and nothing was too much trouble. Thank you so much for making our stay so enjoyable and would definitely recommend to anyone coming to Marrakech!

I do not know where to begin as we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa Makassar. My first experience was with Fouad, the owner, who responded to every email request quickly and thoroughly. When we arrived, the staff was very welcoming and the atmosphere was serene. We had the good fortune to have a chance to meet Fouad on our first night - it was a pleasure to speak to someone who loves what they do and takes pride in their business. The attention to details in the riad were incredible with absolutely everything thought of to make it the perfectly 'Art Deco' themed escape. Our food was delicious and massages were divine. I have been to Marrakech 6 times and would definitely return for a stay with Fouad and his staff. It was very well located to anywhere we wanted to go and we could not have asked for more attentive service. We went to Marrakech this time for a special occasion - my partner's birthday. Fouad had the kindness and generosity to upgrade us to one of their nicer rooms. Do not miss a chance for an unforgettable escape at Villa Makassar !!

My friend and I were after a short but unique break, and that is indeed what we got! Stepping inside the unassuming front door you are transformed in to the 1920's and thats where you stay. Every detail is thought of and lovingly put together by the owner. The staff are funny and attentive and so helpful. The food was the best we tasted in Marrakech! The delights of the basement spa ensured we came back to the uk feeling like new people, so relaxed after such a short time! Every last detail is taken care of, the mirrors, the cabinets, the silver tea pots, the deco cutlery, the beautiful lamps and artwork. This all leads to the amazing ambience created. I would most certainly go back, and would most definitely recommend this riad to anyone looking for a unique place to stay. With only a small number of rooms, it ensures you feel valued and welcomed and nothing is too much trouble.

Room Tip: All the rooms are uniquely designed with indiviual 1920's furniture so whatever one you get will...

Thank you to everyone at Villa Makassar for such a wonderful stay. Our every need was catered for to the very best of your ability. Very impressive art deco design, each piece skillfully placed, and sourced with careful consideration from around the world, even down to the stone flagging on the floor.
The Riad is cool and tranquil, and the Spa is excellent, it is one of the highlights of our holiday, the Masseuse is the hidden jewel in the Riad's crown! The food is excellent, and the best we had in Morocco! Although there isn't a gym we could have a personal trainer come to the Riad if we had wished to. We loved sunbathing on the roof, and had everything we needed delivered to us!
We have come home feeling relaxed and refreshed, with lovely Moroccan memories
Thank you once again

I have to admit that Villa Makassar is one of a kind. It is by far the best ryad I have seen. The design and decor was made with a great unique taste which I have seen nowhere so far. You feel you are in a totally homy facility. The staff was extremely friendly and hospitable and so is the owner. They made our stay very enjoyable and unique. I had the best time in Marrakech, thanks to Villa Makassar. I would definitely recommend to everyone I know. Good job and Thank you!!

We had a wonderful stay at Villa Makassar made all the better by the caring attitude of all the staff and the fantastic decor that is found within this riad. It is plainly evident that much work has gone into the redesign of the Villa and sure enough it has taken 5 years of very hard work to achieve the standard that is very self evident.
It is also very clear that the quality found within Villa Makassar is not just in the building and decor it is also found within the staff attitudes and their approasch to their work. We enjoyed dinner on the first evening having arrived late due to delays at immigration and as with everything at Villa Makassar the meal was delicious from start to finish and nothing was to much trouble.
The Villa is situated in old Marrakech near the Kasbah region and not to far from the Royal Palace. Although only just in old Marrakech he Medina is within walking distance taking approx 15 - 20 mins at a pace to suit the weather. Taxis into the Medina area cost for the 4 of us approx 50 dirham if this was preferred to walking, particularly if returning to the Villa after a days sightseeing.

Room Tip: I cannot imagine any of the rooms presenting a problem.

My partner and I enjoyed our stay at Villa Makassar immensely.

The quality of the riad is excellent and we were immediately impressed with the design, décor and ambience. All members of the team were fantastic and very helpful, ensuring that our stay in Marrakech was everything we hoped it would be. We loved our hammam and spa experience!

I would happily recommend Villa Makassar to all our friends and family should they wish to visit Marrakech. We hope to visit again in the future.
