    How to choose the best riad in Marrakech is always difficult as so many new riad hotels in Marrakech are opening all of the time. Built in the early 18th-century as part of the royal palace, Riad El Mezouar is centrally located in Marrakech’s historic and bustling Medina. 
     
    Riad El Mezouar is well suited to couples or groups and from the moment the large doors of the courtyard swing open, it’s one of the best retreats from the bustling streets of Marrakech. It has a 98% satisfaction rating from guests, making how to choose the best riad in Marrakech an easy decision.
     
    Host story

    Whilst working freelance for the BBC in the Middle East and the Islamic world, Romaine fell in love with the traditional architecture of the riad. Now she owns Riad El Mezouar and her guests tell her she offers one of the most welcoming experiences in Morocco. El Mezouar is full of fresh flowers, artistic details and, with countless nooks to explore, you can return again and again to discover something new. Romaine is always on hand to personalise guest stays and to unlock those authentic experiences that you won't forget – that’s why so many choose to rebook calling it ‘heaven!'

    Dining

    The shaded courtyard with bubbling fountain and the roof terrace are an oasis of calm where guests enjoy delicious breakfasts and lantern-lit dinners made with the best of local produce. 

    Come evening, the Riad is the enchanting backdrop for some exceptional dining. Riad El Mezouar’s experienced cook, Sabah, specialises in delicious Mediterranean and Moroccan dishes with a modern twist. The Riad offers complimentary afternoon tea to all guests and many choose to stay for the nightly three-course dinner after sampling local dishes. Fresh salad lunches are on offer every day and the Riad caters to anyone with dietary preferences.

    Activities

    After a day exploring the souks, take a refreshing dip in the plunge pool and book a massage using traditional Moroccan oils at a local spa. For an insider's take on Marrakech's most authentic restaurants, best rooftop bars with views across the city, ask Romaine who goes out of her way to ensure you have the best experience, and view our Marrakech guide. Head out for a two-hour drive to either the Atlas Mountains, for a taste of Berber life or the coastal town of Essaouira, for a change of pace with a day of surfing or sightseeing.

    The terrace has magnificent views of the Atlas Mountains when the weather is clear, and we think it is a wonderful space to relax with fresh mint tea, read a book or chat with friends. There are two sitting rooms; a summer salon on the gallery level and a winter salon on the courtyard, both with fireplaces providing cosy spaces for the cooler months.
