Reviewed 5 July 2014

We just stayed at Maison Arabes for 3 nights We really never write on trip advisor but wanted to share our fantastic experience
This is such a wonderful Riad hotel in Marrakech that is a real privilege to stay at. It is a only a few minutes walk to the souk and main square which is such a colourful sight to see.
But back to the Riad..The staff at Maison all become like family.( in a good way !!)
So accommodating and amazingly friendly and so helpful
Our spa experience was magical. As soon as you descend the stairs towards the spa you feel transported into another soothing world filled with hundreds of flickering candles. The 90 minute royal hammam treatment was incredible.
Dinner was outside by the pool and was magical. The most romantic setting and great morrocan food
There is a pool country club which is so stunning. A private sanctuary away from the madness of the Souks and the medina. Totally relaxing.
We were supposed to do a cooking class there which we unfortunately couldn't do ( our fault not theirs) that looked so professional and well organised
All in all it was an amazing entry point into the world of Marrakech that we would highly recommend. In fact, when writing this review and trying to tone down the amazing experience of our stay and the brilliance of this property, I couldn't find one fault or reason not to stay. I feel compelled to share this amazing experience with anyone wanting to enjoy the perfect stay in the perfect Riad.

This place is everything everyone raves about. We loved every single detail and would recommend to everyone. We did the cooking class and not only had an amazing lunch but spent two magical days in the country club. Felt like royalty! 6 stars!

My wife and I recently stayed at this hotel for three nights. There is a saying in Marrakech that the surprise is inside as most of the buildings look the same outside. Well, what a surprise we had! This is an absolutely beautiful small hotel inside the Medina and a short walk from the Souks, the square and other attractions. It is gorgeously decorated with art, rugs, lights furniture and artifacts. It has many sitting areas to relax and enjoy the interior. Our room had a working tiled fireplace and a large patio which looked down upon the pool below. The pool is surrounded by the outdoor dinning area which at night is lite up with Moroccan lights that create one of the most romantic dinning areas I have experienced. The Trois Saveurs restaurant is superior, eliminating the need to go anywhere else. The physical beauty is unmatched and so is the service...the employees can not seem to do enough to assure that your stay is memorable. We want to thank Raja, Hicham, Rachid, Adil, Taorfik and Souraya (and all others whose name we do not have) for their outstanding service and pleasant personalities. They made our stay even more memorable. When you are their you will feel like you are home but be wishing that it was your home! I can not say enough good things about this hotel. If you chose not to book there, at least go for dinner. You will not regret it.

Room Tip: We had an upper level room with a large balcony/patio that looked down into the pool area. I would...

We are amazed! Everything was just wonderful, the best hotel we have ever visited. Extremely good service, luxury interiors, the bathrooms are beautiful, good location close to the medina, peaceful. We attended the cooking class they offer, that was a life experience! The bar is professional. Strongly recommend that you don't miss out the afternoon tea. The home made yoghurt for breakfast is something you dream of the whole night and makes you jump out of bed of excitement. The country club is a great bonus to this hotel. They serve excellent lunch there. The Moroccan restaurant in the hotel is fabulous. We will come back!

La Maison Arabe is amazing. I stayed for a week in May with my mum. We had a lovely room with a balcony. It was very comfortable and had a large bathroom. From the moment we arrived the staff and service were exceptional. The staff were very attentive but in a discrete way. Breakfast was amazing and had a great selection. We ate at both restaurants and the food was wonderful, fresh and not over the top in price. We visited the Riad's Country Club which had a beautiful pool, comfortable sun beds and a very good lunch menu. This was a luxurious, relaxing holiday. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect place to stay and we will certainly be going back.

This hotel is fantastic!!! My sisters booked the suite for my 40th birthday for a quick 2night break. The room was fantastic, the food was fantastic and the service was too. All the staff went to such an effort to make our stay special.

And on top of that they have a site 10mins out of the city centre with the most gorgeous pool and gardens. They provide a free shuttle bus every hour to get there and it's a real oasis.
Cant recommend this hotel enough.. .enjoy!

We took our three school age children over spring break and stayed at this wonderful riad at the beginning and end of our tour. The staff was excellent - accommodating, friendly, and wonderfully generous with the children. The accommodations were authentic with exceptional quality and comfort. The food was delicious and provided many options to experience morocco cuisine, but the staff was willing to do the little things for our sometimes picky kids. We also participated in the cooking school and that quite simply rounded out the visit, learning to make tagine and being introduced to the local spices and cooking techniques. The location was perfect for walking, and it felt safe and was as well marked as any hotel in the medina. We would without a doubt return to this riad and recommend it.
