My son and I stayed at Riad Les Trois Palmiers In Marrackech in December 2011. Mr. patrick and the staff were very professionnel and very helpful . If you want to have a good feel for the Moroccan traditions and culture , this is a must. After a day of sightseing when you enter Riad Les Trois Palmiers you feel at home . The staff is very attentive without being intrusive . I enjoyed particularly the terrace where one can view the city and enjoy the sundown . What else can I say? It is a great to place to stay in with an excellent location.

My wife and I recently stayed in this riad in Marrakech. We chose it because of the great reviews it got on this site and we had pretty high expectations on our arrival. All of our expectations we exceeded and this was one of the highlights of our trip. This riad is absolutely beautiful.

The rooms were great and all unique. The courtyard was a great place to eat or simply relax. We enjoyed a fantastic breakfast on the rooftop terrace each morning. It was a great start to the day. It was also the best breakfast we had in Morocco.

The staff was friendly and extremely helpful. Patrick, the owner was quite informative and made some great suggestions for places to visit around the city.

The food was some of the best we had during our two week stay in Morocco. I would strongly advise eating at least one dinner at the riad during your stay.

The only problem we had was finding the riad. I would recommend the airport/train station pick-up option. We had a rental car and so tried to use our GPS to drive to it (we got pretty close, but the entrance is down a street too narrow to drive a car down).

Room Tip: The top floor is connected to the beautiful terrace.

My partner and I have just returned from a 3 night stay in the Riad Les Trois Palmiers and we can report that it rightly deserves its high ranking on trip advisor.

We had arranged with Patrick to be collected from the airport and we are glad we did although I can honestly say that the drive from the airport was one of the scariest of my life! Scooters (with no lights on) pulling out in front of us from every direction!

The Riad is down a few dark alleys so would be very hard to find if you were not guided to it. Once inside though we were amazed at how nice (and peaceful) the place was and the owner Patrick gave us a look round and then we had a nice meal in the Riad.

Our room, Idrisside, was on the top terrace and was very nice. There was a good shower and comftable firm bed. Only niggles were one of the bedside lights had no switch, there was no hot water out of the sink tap during our stay and also there were no bath towels in the room until the second day of our stay.

One thing neither of us was aware of was that we would be awoken at 5am each morning by men shouting the prayer call from the local mosque so take ear plug unless you are a very heavy sleeper!

There were two very helpful guides - Mustapha and Halid, at the Riad and they were always on hand to advise and help if needed.

We would recommend ‘Dar Donab’ restaurant just next to the the Riad in the adjacent Palace – setting was lovely and meals not over expensive.

The Riad is in a good location - 10 minutes from the main square Djemaa el Fna if you go the way the guides advise or it takes a lot longer if you go through the souks!

We have never travelled anywhere where the locals are so keen to part you with the money in your wallet! Example, whilst walking through the square a man came up to me and put a snake round my neck took a picture and then wanted 300 dirhams (£25) for doing so!

Be advised that any locals that try to help you especially if you look lost or even consult your map (which is fairly useless in the maze of alleys that is most of the medina) are either after a tip or will try and guide you to their Uncles/Fathers/Brothers carpet/spice/leather shop etc!!! Be on your guard is all I will say!

Marrakech is a city like no other I have ever been to and in all honesty our three night stay was enough for both of us! There are no pedestrianised areas. Cars, scooters and people all share the same tight alleys and we did witness one women being hit by a car. The constant dodging out of the way of scooters did become tiresome towards the end of our stay. Make sure you have good travel insurance!

The city is also not set up for tourism - sign posts are none existent (this may be so that the locals can guide you for their fee!?) and the street names also didn't always correspond to the 3 different maps I had!

The main tourist sites like the old Koranic school, museum and Bahia palace were interesting but only on a visual level. There was no information (in English at least) unless you wanted to pay for a guide of which there seemed to be plenty - not all official looking!

All in all it was an interesting short break in Marrakech - the whole experience was certainly an assault on the senses but it was definitely nice to get away from all the chaos at the end of it!

Room Tip: We arranged for the Riad to arrange a taxi back to the airport at the end of our stay but this was j...

Patrick and his staff are excellent hosts! They want you to feel at home and you certainly do - it's not like staying in a large, corporate hotel at all. I can only compare it to the ryokan in Kyoto we stayed in once - personal service in a beautiful, relaxing atmosphere. You can mingle with other guests or enjoy your privacy - the common areas are big enough that you can enjoy them undisturbed by others. We took advantage of the dinner service after our complimentary dinner the first night because the food was excellent and the atmosphere was so wonderful! We can't wait to go back!

My friend and I stayed in Marrakech over New Year for three nights and found Patrick and his staff to be helpful, courteous and informative. Nothing was too much trouble, which included being met at the train station, the history of the riad resoration and a delightful banquet to celebrate the New Year.
The room was very pleasant on the first floor and we spent many happy hours on the terrace reading and relaxing.

I booked this Riad on the internet after reading good reviews and decided to give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised to see the place was more beautiful than I expected it to be. The owner Patrick was incredibly friendly and from the moment we walked in made us feel at home. He gave us a tour of the Riad which is calming and peaceful and restored with great attention paid to the smallest of details. Patrick was very helpful and the first thing he did when we walked in was to have tea and pastries brought in while he explained the ways to get in and out of the place and even drew a small map so we would know to find our way back to the hotel. The staff are incredibly kind. Mustafa one of the staff members paid a great deal of attention to making sure we had a wonderful stay, if we needed anything at all, we just had to ask. We had a comfortable room with a private terrace and ate nutritious breakfasts each morning that included fresh breads, jams, home made yogurts, coffee, tea, juice and fresh fruits and I was pleasantly surprised to learn that this was complimentary even though it was not mentioned in our reservation.
The Riad is very conveniently located in the heart of the Medina right next to the best antique shops in Marrakech. The Riad stay definitely added a great deal of value to our stay in Morocco and was the highlight of our trip.it did take us a while to check out like a few other reviewers have mentioned but that was largely due to the owner not being present at the time of our check out which does lead me to believe he is probably the only person who deals with check outs so make sure you check out the night before if possible, especially if you are planning to leave before the afternoon.
overall, excellent stay, definitely go ahead and book this one.

We'd previously stayed at another riad, which was quite nice. But Riad Les Trois Palmiers was a cut above. It's got great reviews in Trip Advisor, and it deserves them.

Patrick (one of the co-owners) and the primary staff (Halid and Mustafa) were great, giving both good advice, and knowing when to leave you alone.

Our room was delightful. The roof-top terraces were a refuge from the city, while the interior court-yards were quiet and relaxed. The included breakfasts were standard continental fare, with high-quality ingredients.

The location was great, a short walk to Djemaa el Fna (the main square) and the souks.

For an authentic Moroccan experience, with a touch of European flair, this is the place to go. We'll be recommending it to friends and family.

Room Tip: Look at their website.
