“A Class Act!”
Reviewed 20 March 2011

We read about Riad Hayati in Vogue and thought maybe is would be a little heavy on attitude. We need not have worried. The ambience here is warm hospitality in a stunning residence with absolutely amazing personal service.

From the moment Abdel met us at the airport and escorted us to the riad we began an enchanting week being totally spoiled. We won't forget the moment we walked though that simple door into a courtyard with gurgling marble fountain with rose petals and jasmine. It was evening and the house was candlelit with heady incense wafting through the garden. Dreamy.

But, what we really appreciated was the homey atmosphere. Happy people in a happy house who genuinely enjoy receiving guests. The other guests in the riad had been there before and there was a relaxed,familiar feeling with the staff. Mina and Abdel seem to keep mental notes on the favorite drinks and foods of guests. Nobody needed to ask twice for anything. It just appeared with a smile.

This place is a class act in the best sense of the word.

What can I say that hasn't been said before - our stay was superb and the hospitality afforded to us by Abdel and Mina was second to none. The food, service, friendliness, information, organisation and helpfulness was everything we had led our friends to expect but they were still amazed at it - they are a great credit to you and the Hayati.

Once again thank you and we look forward to returning.

At the risk of repeating what so many have said before I will simply add that in addition to its beauty, Riad Hayati is unique in its charm and comfort. We've traveled around the world and stayed at luxurious hotels. But, in this lovely home we felt a genuine warmth. Nothing scripted or overbearing. Throughout our stay we felt relaxed enough to wander into Mina's kitchen and watch her prepare dinner or ask Abdel to change our reservations ( which we did often ) in the restaurants or clubs.

This is really a well-run establishment with the most delightful atmosphere and service.
Very Highly reccomended

This is our second visit and we will return. From the moment we arrived at Marrakech airport we were truly spoiled by Abdel and Mani. Abdel provided everything we needed and Mani provided delicious food. This Riad is something special, 'perfection' and its position is perfect, just a very short walk from Jemma El Fna and the Bahia Palce.

We found Hayati on concierge.com, and thank god we did. After a short stay at another riad on the other side of the Medina, we were hoping for something traditional, but light filled and private. This is exactly what we found at Hayati. Abdhel, who runs the day to day at the Riad, is a gem, and an excellent guide and map reader! His sister, Mina, cooks heavenly traditional food, if only we had more time to stay in and enjoy her talents! we shall be back. rooms are DIVINE. we went in Jan, so cold in the evening and there was always a fire burning in our room when we got back.
I cannot think of anything I would change, thank you Ron, Abhdel, and Mina for a memorable and luxurious stay in your home.

This place is really quite special. It's stylish with quiet elegance but it's really the wonderful hospitality we' experienced here that made it so memorable.

Ron is quite modest about his "Little Hayati" but he shouldn't be. First of all it's not little. There are three houses that comprise the riad and one can wander from large absolutely splendid rooms to cosy,intimate nooks and crannies. Bedrooms have fireplaces and are wonderfully comfortable with aromatic candles, fresh flowers daily, unlimited fruit and fragrant bath amenities from the Atlas Mountain villages.

Mina and her brother Abdel keep the place running flawlessly and of course Mina's cooking is just superb. Every night a new delight served by candlelight in the dining room or by a cosy fire in one of the smaller salons.

We talked with some of the other guests while we were there. They had all been there before and come to stay several times a year. It was easy to see why! We will certainly be back as well.

Riad Hayati is an absolute treasure of delights. The place is a vision of understated elegance with flawless personal service.

From the moment Abdel met us at the airport and whisked us off to the riad we felt totally cared for and by the end of the week we were hopelessly spoiled. Not easy getting back to cold post-holiday London .

Our bedroom ( little suite actually ) had a seductive bathroom and dressing room, fireplace,and private terrace. Egyptian cotton sheets and a luxurious cashmere blanket were wonderful touches of luxury.

The riad has a bit of serendipity about it. There are little surprises at every turn. Exquisite marble fountains, Intimate salons and nooks and a grand salon that could be in a film.
Fabulous books, TV, DVD, WIFI. Ron must be commended for his attention to detail. He seems to have thought of everything for the comfort of his guests.

I must mention a word about Mina's cooking. Simply extraordinary! French and Moroccan specialities from fresh local produce beautifully presented and served. All the guests in the house has been there before and Mina never failed to remember their favorite dishes.

Hayati is a real find and we loved it.
