“Fabulous”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2010

This Riad is just wonderful. We called one day before our arrival, and let the management know that we would be coming to the bus station, and there was someone waiting for us to help with luggage and find the Riad! It was so helpful, and made traveling so pleasant. Upon arrival we were given mint tea and oranges sprinkled with cinnamon. They have Mac laptops with wireless internet available to use for the guests, which was very convenient. They gave us a map, and great recommendations on where to eat. The staff is just great.

The accomodations were clean and the rooms were cute. Breakfasts were included and yummy crepes with jams and coffee/tea/O.J. They speak English, which was helpful to my travel partner and I, and everyone was just so friendly. I would recommend this place to family and friends 100%.

Stunning new riad - our room was the best and largest we had in Morocco. We even had a fire place. Sylvie was lovely and Hakim was a wonder man. Unfortunately we had only one night there.

We chose to stay at Riad Malaika after reading other excellent reviews and wish to add to what has already been said about the riad. It more than lived up to my expectations! from the beautiful ground floor open spaces to the rooms there is an attention to detail and style which is just lovely. it's not style over comfort however and were very happy with our twin room (up two twisty staircases) We were made very welcome by the riad owners and all their staff. It's well located in the heart of the Essaouira medina and easy to find (when you've been shown once!) wholeheartedly recommended and I wish the riad the success it deserves.
