Awesome staff for their service. They were really hospitable and always smiling.
Great location in a quiet area away from the hustle but close to the main attractions. The pool was good to cool down in the hot summer weather.
I would definitely recommend Riad Mazal.
Massage was lovely as well.

This was my first time in Marrakech, the Riad is very friendly and warm. The owner was giving al sorts of helpful tips. There is a lady giving massage who is an angel. Great food for breakfast, fresh fuit juices, coffe, tea you name it! They organised a special Maroccan dinner, best food I have had in Marocco ever!!! I highly reccomend this place!

Room Tip: The suite on the lower ground floor is magical!

Riad Mazal is a superb riad, and we cannot have wished for anywhere better for our first trip to Marrakech. Both the public areas and the individual bedrooms are decorated with exquisite taste; beautiful mosaic tiles, fountains, drapes & luxurious soft furnishings. The ensuites for the two bedrooms we used (Beldi & Luna) were quirky and very Morrocan in styling - with fantastic showers & none of the 'plumbing aromas' that we had experienced in the first riad (from which we arranged a hasty transfer!)
The Italian owner Vito was staying when we first arrived & - along with his small staff team - made us incredibly welcome. This continued even after Vito had left; these staff really understand the meaning of hospitality.
Although booked in on a bed & breakfast rate, we ate in the riad 4 times during our 6 day stay (one lunch & three evening meals) - the tagines were superb.
The only (very slight) downside is that the location of the pool means that it is in shade after approx 2pm; however this is probably of benefit in the summer & we still managed to swim in it in November! There is a roof terrace for serious sunbathing.
Although everyone tells you to stay in the Medina in Marrakech, we disagree! Mazal is located in the French 'Gueliz' area, a gentle 20 min walk from the Medina, £4 by taxi. It was very peaceful, but within easy walking distance of many good restaurants, cafes & patisseries - even a supermarket. These restaurants provided more variety than if you were staying in the Medina, or in one of the luxury hotels out of town.
We were also an easy walk from the beautiful Majorelle Gardens (definitely worth a visit) and from the ubiquitous open-top tourist bus which gave us a good 'overview' of the main sites of Marrakech at the beginning of our stay.
It really is the right balance - near enough to nip in & out of the Medina each day, but far enough away to 'chill' and explore the Gueliz area, which many of the Moroccans actually prefer. Our children (13 & 11) who were somewhat apprehensive about Marrakech, having not previously been outside Europe, were completely won over & much of that was due to the welcome & attention we received at Mazal.
One final tip - if you do go to Mazal, book yourself a massage; we were so de-stressed afterwards that we slept for 2 hours!
In conclusion - don't look any further - book it!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Beldi suite (see it on their website - it's gorgeous and has access to a lovely terrace) and our children had the nearby Lunar room, which they loved. We saw inside all the bedrooms, each was individual and had something to recommend it. However, the family room, whilst clean & spacious, lacks some of the character that the other bedrooms have.

I can't imagine a better way to experience Marrakech for the first time. The Riad is an exotic, lovely and peaceful villa in which to stay. No comfort or luxury is overlooked. In the morning one is awakened by the sound of prayers being broadcast across the city: "wake up; praying is better than sleeping." At night, the only occasional sound was the muffled bark of a next door dog, rather soothing to an American in an unfamiliar culture. The owners of the Riad have a philosophy--'our satisfaction is your happiness'-and they go out of their way to ensure that no detail is overlooked, from arranging day trips, to making reservations at wonderful restaurants and giving us the best opportunities to experience Marrakech. The staff are gracious and fluent in French, a bit of English and some Italian, as well as Arabic, of course. During our one week stay across the Christmas holiday, we happened to have the Riad to ourselves (family of six). The owners were there as well. Thus, the "hotel" felt more like home--on cold evenings (it can get into the '40s F at night) we sat in front of a blazing fireplace; drank hot mint tea; played Scrabble, and slept in comfortable beds under luxurious sift blankets. The Riad has contemporary bathroom facilities and zoned heating. Everything is kept spotless. Days we ventured out to the Atlas mountains to see a Berber village; visit Assouss Argane to see the shelling of the Argane nut from which a delicious and nourishing oil is made; drive to the seaside town of Essaouira; make our way through the souk and venture into the market to purchase a treasured caftan. Evenings were filled with events--dinner at the So nightclub at the Hotel Sofitel; an evening of spectacle at the Jad Mahal; belly dancing and traditional Moroccan music at the Riad itself accompanied by excellent Moroccan dishes. Throughout our stay the owners arranged for anything we needed or wanted, from a driver who met us at the airport in Casablanca to drive us to Marrakech to guides at each point of visit. There is no doubt in my mind that I will stay at Riad Mazal for my next visit!

Marrakech is a fabulous city to visit and this is a great place to stay. Great location, beautiful rooms with a first class, friendly and personal service. I can not recommend this beautiful Riad highly enough. A special thanks to Mustafa for taking care of my whole family! Thanks Adam B.
