“Beautiful Riad in busy Marrakech”
Reviewed 28 July 2013

We booked this through voyage prive and were really pleased with our choice. Picked up from the airport by Mohammed the taxi driver who does lots of work for this Riad all went well with the transfer, its only 15 mins from the airport. All Riads seem to be in tiny dusty streets so behind the studded wooden door is a beautiful cool and calm courtyard with a fountain. Made very welcome with tea and little Moroccan sweet pastries then taken to the room. Only 6 rooms all of which look onto the courtyard. Plenty of space, really good bed, clean with air con, minibar, tv . Very dark and cool inside which is just what we wanted as it was super hot when we were there at the end of June. Two roof terrace areas, with sofas and loungers etc and a nice pool for cooling down, not for swimming but you can sit in it at read your book!.breakfast every morning on the roof terrace , a variety of local pastries and bread, a bit of fruit or yoghurt, tea coffee....no choice-quite simple but nice. Really lovely staff very kind and happy to bring up pots of mint tea and salads when we didn't want to go out.. I would absolutely go back to this Riad but not sure I would go back to Marrakech it's so busy and dusty and hot- we did a good half day tour of Marrakech with Mohammed the taxi guy which was good and so we did the main gardens and parks and the palace.

Room Tip: All the rooms looked lovely

Palais Delia has now been open for 1.5 years and there are no niggles now! I think the other English language review is unfair if you have a sense of adventure and are willing to immerse yourself in the culture of a foreign land! I am here with my wife and our 13 year old son and all is well.. Its peaceful and tranquil.. The wifi is constant and fast. Service cleanliness and decor are super. And they have the most wonderful cat which is sitting on my lap as I write this. Dinner will be served soon. Ciao

We have just got back from four nights at Dalia. It is a haven of peace and quiet in the medieval medina. The surrounding streets are scary at first - narrow, dusty, full of scooters, donkeys and bikes but after a while you get used to them. Under no circumstances speak to anyone who talks to you on the street. If they find out where you are going they will escort you and ask for 10 or even 20 euros in a demanding way.
The room was comfortable and the air conditioning worked. There is a pool to sit in but it is not big enough to swim. For several nights we were the only people staying and it was very quiet. The evening meal is ok, but on one night they left it to be heated up by a young man on his first night and who had no idea. He couldn't even open a bottle of wine. No sign at all of the proprietor except on the very first night for 30 seconds. Very very limited ability to speak English from anyone we met at the Riad except for our taxi driver who was wonderful.
Big problem when we came to check out and it emerged that they would only accept cash (only euros or dirhams) - not a credit card. We had paid by credit card perfectly well elsewhere in Marrakesh or the web site had warned us that cash was required so that was a surprise. We had just enough cash on us.
It is not expensive, and they will try to help you but do be aware that this is a very unsophisticated place
