“Pure elegance”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 September 2013

My husband and I can't say enough good things about this wonderful riad. The setting, the food, the style-- everything was perfect. We slept wonderfully to boot. Jacqueline is the ideal host: welcoming and brimming with enthusiasm and information. Thank you, Jacqueline.

My boyfriend and I spent the most wonderful few days at Riad Samsara in May. Isabelle and Jacqueline were extremely welcoming and informative, and Milouda was a fabulous cook. The rooms were beautifully appointed and the rooftop terrace was lovely. I highly recommend it!

I have now stayed at the Riad Samsara twice and will be going back as soon as I can. It is absolutely beautiful. The owner has amazing, quirky taste and the rooms are palatial. The hosts, Isabelle and Jacqueline, look after you completely and you feel totally cosseted. The cooking is fantastic - you must spend at least one evening in and enjoy one of Moolida's meals. Then there is the final attraction - Princess Jade! - the cat. This really is one of the nicest places I have ever stayed in.

Room Tip: The rooms are all gorgeous so you can't go wrong

We were lucky to find such a peaceful and tastefully restored Riad for our short visit to Marrakech. From the moment of our arrival, we felt warmly welcomed. Jacqueline, Isabelle and their lovely women`s team made our visit relaxed and inspirating at the same time. We were given helpful advice to find our way to the medina and especially enjoyed the delicious home made Moroccon tajine for dinner, being seated at a beautifully decorated table in one of the open living rooms looking out onto the fountain in the courtyard and the breakfast on the rooftop. A wonderful place!

I have just returned from my first trip to Morocco and had the luck to stay in what must have been the best places in both the High Atlas Mountains and Marrakech . Firstly I stayed 2 nights in the High Atlas in Douar Samra. It was beautiful, the position, food, staff were all first class. Such attention to detail in the bedrooms and dining room with tasty local food. The roof terraces and pretty gardens had many places to relax and enjoy the peace. I wish I could have stayed longer, but when arriving in Marrakech and being welcomed by Jacquline ,Isobel and her team I knew that I had chosen well again. Jacqueline has obiously got a fantastic eye for stlye and whilst Dour Samra is Rustic and charming fitting perfectly in the High Atlas Riad Samsara has to be one of the most beautiful Riads. My room was stunning and eating an evening meal in one of the lovely lounges was a visual and gourmet treat..The position in the Medina is great and as a woman traveling alone I must thank all of you for your help and advise. Lets hope I can return.

Room Tip: In the High Atlas some of the rooms don't have electricity which I thought was lovely lots of la...

This riad is beautiful, with spacious rooms, a nice rooftarras and great service. The location is on the nord side of the medina, which is close to everything. I can be a bit hard to find your way back, ask in the riad they will show you the way. Good breakfast which you can have on the terras.

Just back from a wonderful stay at Riad Samsara and Jacqueline's other hotel, Douar Samra, in the Atlas Mountains. Fantastic one-night stay at the Riad, hugely assisted by Isabelle and her team. Amazing room - the Jacaranda - food was memorable, cooked by the amazing Milouda, thank you!
Definitely a great place to stay away from the hustle and bustle of Marrakech, but within easy walking distance of the centre. Isabelle shared her insider knowledge of the city and pointed us in the right direction for shopping, taxis etc - you feel really safe in their hands since they only use /recommend known taxis and shops - something that helped us enormously when my husband left his phone in the taxi taking us to the airport.
Not only did the taxi driver ring us but arranged for his boss to come to the airport where he returned the mobile - all in the nick of time before our flight left for London! Great service from all who are connected to or recommended by the Riad Samsara! Thank you !
