Fabulously tranquil in the heart of the Medina. A very short walk to the market place. Sumptuous breakfast, kept us going til well past lunch time. Nelly and her team do a terrific job, bent over backwards for us, can't wait to go back again. Although the Riad is in the old part of town, we felt totally safe at...

I was staying at Vanilla Sma with a friend for 6 nights and we were more than happy with our choice! We slept so well in really comfortable beds and started every day so well with the best breakfast on the rooftop terrace! Nelly and her helping hands were wonderful, I miss them already! One night we enjoyed the jacuzzi...

We stayed at Riad vanilla sma for 3 nights and it has been an amazing experience. Nelly and Reda are both dedicated in maintaining a high standard for their riad. Breakfast was amazing with a huge spread of homemade food and the room was beautiful and clean with everything you need. Highly recommended and I'm definitely coming back!

Myself and boyfriend stayed here and loved it. All the people at the riad were friendly and extremely helpful - especially when showing us the map and how to get around. Our room was traditionally decorated, very clean and had a lovely modern shower. Breakfast was authentic and generous. Due to the location I probably wouldn't recommend this riad for...

The rooms were exquisitely decorated, clean and spacious. The riad itself is amazing! There is a hot tub on the roof that we didn't manage to use but it would have been a great experience- please use it when you stay here! The one ting that stood out was the service. Reda and Nelly were extremely friendly and hospitable, always...

Lovely place to stay in Marrakesh, very central location (we walked to most sights), comfortable and beautifully decorated riad. Nelly gave us great tips on where to go and eat. Plus, ending the day at their hammam with a massage and then a tasty dinner was the cherry on top! We did stay in the sma suite.

We stayed at Riad Vanilla Sma for 4 nights at the end of November/ beginning of December. The owner, Nelly, greeted us with traditional sweet mint Moroccan tea (which was complimentary throughout our stay) and sat with us for an hour pinpointing on a map places to visit and eat in Marrakesh, which was incredibly useful as all of her...
