Beautiful traditional riad, lovely room and staff were friendly, entertaining and couldn't do enough to make us comfortable, feel very welcome and look after us - they were good fun. We stayed at the beginning of February - lovely warm days and cold nights - we had looked at temperatures in Morrocco before booking and would advise anyone else to... More

Stayed in this riad on 31 December 2013 for one night only,with husband and two children. Thank goodness we were only there one night, not very friendly and charged us 220 dirhams for cheap bottle of wine,we had paid less for similar bottle in nearby restaurant. Riad very pretty but freezing. Female staff seemed friendly.

This Riad is a little out of the way, right on the edge of the medina, average 20 minutes walk to the centre. The rooms are small, even the suites . The place is a little worn around the edges considering the price. Very cold in January when we went as the only heating in the whole place is the... More

Hmmmmm. Not sure. The Riad is away from the noise and bustle of Marrakech and is an oasis of calm, but the rooms are dark, not very comfortably furnished, the bed was hard and there is just a curtain between the bedroom and bathroom. They were clean and serviced every day. The WiFi never worked and the TV only had... More

My boyfriend and I spent 7 nights at Riad Opale in August. First of all the building and decor are beautiful. There is a lovely little pool (perfect for cooling off) and a roof terrace complete with a covered area and sunbeds (unfortunately they were quite stained). The room we stayed in (Saphir Suite) was nice. The bed was huge... More

“If you stay do not choose one of the small rooms as you cannot swing a cat in them. The largest suite the Saphir is about the size of an average hotel room. Be aware that it is very dark in the rooms with no direct outside light/windows.”
