We stayed in Riad Dar Nabila for 4 nights from 12th february. I booked this as a surprise 50th Birthday present for my Partner, so wanted it to be perfect. He had mentioned that he would like to go to Marrakech and stay in a traditional Riad. We were collected at the airport and Cecilia met us from the taxi and led us down to the Riad. once inside we were given mint tea and pastries and made very welcome.
our room was not the one we had booked so were given another room which was fairly small but very comfortable. we were on the lower floor so the room led out onto the central courtyard, so you didn't really have a great amount of privacy but this seems to be the case in most small Riads. It does say tea/coffee making facilities in the room but there were none, so Cecilia let us use the kitchen for this whenever we wanted to, we also kept some things in the fridge.
Cecilia was lovely, she was very helpful and cooked us a wonderful tajine, although eating in the Riad was 15 euros (expensive compared to restaurants ) we ate there one night and it was lovely.
We were there on Valentines Day and Cecilia bought roses which Andy (my partner) arranged for her she even let us have one for our room.
I see people have mentioned recently of being "locked in " and the place being unattended at night. we did notice that there was no one there at night, which was slightly worrying regarding emergencies etc. however we had a key and could get out if we needed to. We had booked a bus to Essaouira and were up making tea at 5.30 am, no one was there but we just let ourselves out when we were ready .
There is a lovely sun terrace on the top of the Riad, this was great and even in February it was very hot and sunny.
Outside the Riad was a different matter, we got lost on the first night after a taxi dropped us off and said "your Riad down there" we wandered around for a while and then 2 lads walked us back to the Riad they did expect paying but I was so glad to be back safe. After this bad experience we got a taxi back to the bus station and then just walked through madina gates and down to the Riad, it is easy to find if you remember a few landmarks or street names.
Marrakech is an amazing place to visit, most of the people are friendly and a bit of politeness and respect goes a long way here ! The night market is fascinating,we sat on a restaurant roof terrace watching them set up one evening, just seeing how it comes alive was great.
You do get pestered by shop keepers but we just said no, thank you and that was fine.
The streets are quite dirty and there is begging but you just have to accept this, although it was difficult to begin with.
We had a trip to the Atlas mountains organised by the Riad. It was just us and a driver, we stopped off in a little town and visited a market before going to the mountains, what a great day.
We also took a local bus to Essaouira we paid about £24 for both of us, it is a 3 1/2 hour journey but well worth it, the port was lovely and relaxed, a complete contrast to the hustle and bustle of Marrakech. We had all day there, compared to just a few hours if booked through the Riad and much, much cheaper !
We will certainly be going back to Marrakech and will probably spend a couple more nights in the Riad.

Room Tip: The rooms on the first floor will certainly have more privacy than those on the bottom.

Very hard to find. Were lost finding the Riad finally when we got there at 1am the lady happily opened up and showed us to our rooms offering to make us something to eat too.
sevice wasn't bad maybe because we were'nt really there all the time.
Overall not a bad place.

not sure if there was a swimming pool.

Room Tip: make sure the a/c is working

This was the first place we stayed at on our trip to Morocco and we were very happy with it. It was very peaceful and the owner was really helpful and arranged a camel trek for us and helped us with anything we needed. The staff are friendly and our room was perfect for us, the courtyard was especially nice. It was a little more expensive than other places we have stayed but worth the money

we stayed here for a week really did feel at home the staff really made us feel welcomed. the owners should really be proud off there new staff as they are wonderfull. I would stay here again. the only thing that concerned me was the location off this place as it can be confusing to find but once you have been been around a few days its fine. if you do get lost just ask a local but dont ask the kids as they will want money and if they ask you if your looking for the Riad just say no to them that you are fine they will leave you alone. If you want the Raid experiance this is the place to stay.

We can't really fault the Riad staff. The manager, Khalila, was excellent in may ways and did a good job in making us feel at home, from the moment we first walked in. She and the staff were always patient, friendly and even helped us sort out our last minute gifts in the local markets. In fact, they also gave us a farewell gift which was very nice from them!
The riad has links to travel/excursion companies and can advise and book excursions on behalf of customers, but backpackers will perhaps prefer to save money by booking directly.
The food was amazing - although €15 can be a bit too much, and the room was very clean and had hot water all day long.

On the negative side I'd refer to previous comments about the kids who work for/with/near the riad. Clearly there's a connection between them and the riad which is unclear to customers, but needs sorting, for the sake of the riad's reputation! They are supposed to be guides/helpers, but their lack of care and occasional aggressive behaviour is appalling.
For example, on our second day in Marrakesh, Khalila arranged for two of them to show us the Medina. They did a good job until the moment they took us to one of their uncle's shop, where everyone expected us to buy something. Naturally, this kind of pressure put us off and made us feel uneasy; this was aggravated when they literally abandoned us outside the shop after we refused to buy anything and even though we had given the kids some money for the tour they gave us earlier! It was not easy to find our way back to the riad (even the locals got lost when they tried to help us) and after that we decided not to receive any further offers for help, despite seeing those kids everyday hanging around the riad.
We would advise travellers to keep a map to the riad at hand, since it's very hidden and not easy to find.

Overall, Marrakesh was a good experience and this riad is recommended for the rooms, value for money, friendliness of the staff and great food. But be weary of those kids and try to book trips on your own to save some money.
