La Maison Arabe

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 18 November 2013

We have just returned from the most fabulous holiday in Morroco - and La Maison Arab was our first stop. We were blown away from the moment we walked through the doors and our expectations were more than met throughout. From waking up to THE most incredible breakfast, to the warm friendly staff, and the unbelievable architecture there is something for everyone. We dined in the Morrocan Restaurant first night which was fabulous, and the last night we ate our own creation!! The cooking workshop was an absolute highlight - but Marrakech for us was simply amazing. Incredible sights, sounds, smells AND shopping - heaven!! We had a local guide which I would say was absolutely worth it.

Room Tip: We loved the older part of the hotel, but the newer rooms are also spectacular and overlook the pool...

We stayed four nights, wish it were longer. All staff without exception were welcoming and helpful. The room was excellent, the food very good, and eating around the pool was delightful. The icing on the cake was the 'Country Club' about 20 minutes minibus transfer outside city- a beautiful tranquil garden, a large swimming pool, and more lovely food and excellent staff.

Staff is very courteous and anxious to be of assistance. We planned on a grand dinner in the restaurant, we had heard so many rave reviews. Our schedule interfered and we only had time for appetizers. The staff accommodated us just the same with the friendly and humorous service. Food was first rate. Hechim, a bellhop from the lobby was particularly helpful in showing us how to make use of the Wifi and an app to call the U.S. free of charge.

Room Tip: We had room #218. Lots of up and down sets of stairs to reach room but well worth the climb.We had a...

I booked a half day course and thoroughly enjoyed it. It is obvious that they have huge experience in running cookery courses and the morning was really well planned. My class was 6 in total- I think maximum size 8. We started with an outline of what we would be doing and a demonstration of breakfast pancakes being made followed by a tasting.We then visited a nearby bakery to see the master baker taking delivery of loaves from locals and firing them. The course was led by the delightful and knowledgeable Wafaa with a Dada doing all the actual cooking . Our dish was a chicken and preserved lemon tagine to be served with two Moroccan salads. Each course member has a work station in the teaching kitchen with two gas rings, sink , choping board etc.; full and detailed oral and printed instructions are given and everyone prepares their own dish while watching the dada do the dish. Each station has a screen showing the Dada working in close up. The course is totally hands on but they carefully watch that everyone keeps up and help out if required! The course concludes with the eating of the meal- my husband who did not do the course was able to come and share my dishes! There is a lovely cook book for purchase.

Room Tip: I did not stay at the Maison Arabe but they made me very welcome and I liked the ambience of the hot...

My wife and I spent 2 nights at the Maison Arabe at the start of our trip around Morocco and what a great start to the holiday it turned out to be! A truly authentic feel to the welcome and the room was large and quite unique. Superb food in one of the most beautiful restaurants we have had the pleasure to dine in. I can thoroughly recommend a stay here.

We stayed here for a luxury break for a few days and weren't dissapointed!
You find it situated down a little alley and walk into this haven ! It's smells deliscious as you walk in and all the staff are very friendly , welcoming and not able to help enough !!
I am gluten free and I found their advice and willingness to accommodate me very good - they made me corn bread every morning and even added cumin one day when they knew I had a poorly stomach!

Hadn't realised that the country club was a short drive away , but this really didn't hamper things, there's a shuttle bus run by the hotel.

The main thing I realised was the attention to detail throughout

Would recommend and would return!

What a great Riad, big enough to be interesting, but small enough to still feel authentic. We loved our stay here. The staff were fantastic, the design of the hotel magical and the food excellent. We stayed in the Royal Suite which suited our family of three very well with the two separate levels and one bathroom on each level. Only minor gripe would be that the air-conditioning seemed incredibly noisy.

We enjoyed our cooking class which was very well organised and included a visit to the hotels small shop outside the hotel and also a bakery where they bake everyone’s bread.

There was a major power cut while we were there and the staff coped admirably for the 8 or so hours that the power was off. We all tried the spa which was good but being underground (where the spa is located) during the power cut was not ideal.
