The service was superb the tours/drivers arranged by the Shama could not have been bettered we intend to return can we give higher praise than that? We consider the cost of staying to be very reasonable too.
As soon as the door closes to the noisy street, you find yourself in a tranquil oasis, relaxing music and the faint smell of orange flower drift through the foyer into the pool area. A lovely big bed in a spacious room, excellent massage treatments, and the staff couldn't have been more friendly and accommodating.
The shower head couldnt be angled in such a way as to avoid making the bathroom floor wet.
staff atmosphere decor bedrooms tranquility - you have to go there to understand.
cold pool isolated wifi
This was a really comfortable hotel to stsy in, small and petfectly formed. Loved the Marrocan style of decoration, especially the bathroom with beautiful tiling and fixtures.the staff were very friendly and happy tp arrange or book anything for you. Their own trips ate actually very good value.
This hotel is located in a bit of a dodgy area and can be difficult to navigate to when walking. You are at the mercy of some oopportunistic locals who offer to lead you the way...take you the wrobg wsy and then ecpect money. You should be prepared to get taxis everywhere.
Riad Shama was a gorgeous, tranquil escape from the frenetic Medina and market in Marrakech. It was quiet, peaceful and gorgeously decorated and appointed. The food was outstanding and the staff excellent.
The riad is stunning! The staff are very friendly and our drivers to and from excursions where happy to go out of the way to do anything for us. I liked the location of the riad I felt like it was the real morocco feel very raw and rustic.
I didn't like the fact that there wasn't much choice in terms of food and that there was hardly anyone who understood English, apart from 1 or 2 staff who were not always around. The pillows in the rooms were a little too soft for my liking. There were also a few excursions that were miscommunicated to us which resulted in us paying more for them and the fact that English wasn't a strong point it was hard to get my point across, so we just paid it. Wifi is also an issue you can only connect on the roof or inside the restaurant.
Maria the manager leads a professional caring and accomodating staff; they provide timely discreet service to their guests. The dinner tables around the pool provide for the most romantic setting. You can eat and drink at a very reasonable price at this Riad. You can count on Usef or Mustapha to make your dinner experience the most pleasant. Do not miss the hamman experience it is a must Consider the upstairs terrasse to savour the mint tea, wine or just to gaze in each others eyes. This Riad being in the Medina gives its guest a true and unique Moroccan experience Nathalie and Sylvain from Canada
Our 5 day stay was to short
The staff were so welcoming and the Riad was beautiful, it was peaceful, well kept and the pool was much appreciated in the heat of the day. Also only a 20 min walk from the main square so a great location too.
Everything about our stay was amazing; the welcome, our room, the pool, the breakfast etc. The ambiance and atmosphere was perfect (beautiful, softly played music throughout the hotel). We chose to eat dinner one evening at Shama and that also was perfect. The hotel taxi & driver met us at the airport and waited hours for us to get through passport control (you need the patience of a Saint for that) and the charge was only Euros 20. On another day he took us to the bus station so that we could buy our tickets for our next destination which worked out really well. We booked the family room at Shama with sliding doors between rooms and our teenagers had the twin bit, perfect again! They even had their own en suite, as did my husband and I. Couldn't stop taking photographs of this beautiful oasis right in the middle of mad, crazy & chaotic Marrakech!
Absolutely nothing to dislike!
The Riad was amazing, so was the staff. It was like a little paradise in the middle of crazy medina! The rooms were very tidy and cozy, and the terrase on the roof was great. We enjoyed every moment we spent in the Riad.
The location of Riad is a bit far from the main square and the neibourhood wasn't very nice. Once you know your way - it's simple to come back, but first times it's almost impossible not to loose your way! The dirrections of google maps shown on the page weren't really helpfull.
The Riad is gorgeous and the staff and extremely attentive and helpful.
The extras and excursions were quite pricey and the location is a fair walk from the souks and the main square but not enough t be a problem, just an effort.
A high standard of service and facilities. Excellent location and very friendly helpful staff. Would highly recommend it and wouldn't want to stay anywhere else in Marrakech. Also,a very beautiful building.
We stayed here for 6 nights at the end of May and were incredibly impressed with the spaceousness of the rooms and terrace. Breakfast was great and it was a lovely escape from the hustle and bustle outside!
The venue was stunning, but perhaps the most pleasing aspect was the quality of the staff, who whist professional had enough personality to make the stay feel special. In particular Youssef was excellent.
I'd say sometimes service e.g food was slightly slow. But actually it was part of the laid back charm of the suites and service generally in Morrocco was slower than you may expect in the UK so this certainly was not a dislike.
We received a warm greeting and Youseff is a fabulous host and was happy to help organise anything we needed. The Riad is stunning and clean and the very well decorated. We enjoyed our evenings watching the sunset from the room terrace overlooking the rooftops of Marrakech and of course the Atlas mountains. Initially you feel very deep into the Medina, but actually if you follow the flow of traffic it is simple & safe enough to navigate you way to and from the square – if not a taxi costs 50 dirham (5 euros) one way.
Although we found our stay relaxing, the food service always seemed quite slow. One morning it took 1 hour for an omelette to arrive, after we raised this to the manager our breakfast always arrived quickly! It would be better to have coffee and orange juice available for people to help themselves to – I found it frustrating having to wait 10 minutes for the waiter to bring you your first refreshments of the day. Also, being English (that speak little or no French) we found it difficult to communicate with the staff and this created some confusion at times. We booked a trip to Ourika Valley which the manager said is beautiful – we found it to be a touristy and overpriced excursion. There was a nice moment when having mint tea with snowy mountains in view but we have been to much nicer places – the river here is overrun with restaurants and it isn’t what I was expecting, nor did I feel it was traditional Berber!
Great manager, beautiful and big room, good roof top terasse, relaxing oasis and peaceful athmosphere, nice breakfast
Staff wasn't very good at english, a bit boring menu, heating wasn't turned on so it was a bit chilly though the weather was nice and warm outside
This riad was an oasis of calm befor venturing out into the madness of the city. It proved a perfect contrast to this beautiful and vibrant city. Staff were unbelievably friendly and Moroccan mint tea was on tap !
Very helpful and welcoming staff. The location of the Riad was good, not too far from the main square but well away from the main tourist hotels. Breakfast was very good. Enjoyed the hamman.and massage.
Not very keen on the evening meal when we ate in the restaurant.
Very quiet nice Riad.Excelent staff in the SPA.Very good management.
Staff in the breakfast area, little slow.
The staff and the owner of the Riad was very friendly helpful. The service was excellent, they organized trips, transfers, transfers to restaurants etc. Great place, the Riad is calm relaxing, ideal for anyone that wants to relax. Would advise it to everyone.
beautiful interior designs comfortable beds hot water/showers fast wifi
quite far from the main square of the medina laundry costs were very expensive at 15dirhams (just over 2AUD) to wash a pair of underpants. they charged per item of clothing as opposed to a bag of washing even though they had a washing machine. very hard to find a laundromat in Marrakech.
Crystal, the manager was extremely helpful with our family (suggesting restaurants, getting us to the Medina square, calling taxis for us. Her exuberance made our stay that much more special. The Riad is right in the heart of the Medina so be prepared to step out your door to ancient city life and all its craziness.
Spacious rooms, quiet location, not far from Medina, staff very helpful and supplied us with useful infos, recommend to opt for hotel´s taxi driver
Ordered to have dinner at 7:30pm (previously told to the waiter, manager and another staff person about our dinner), unfortunately everything was ready around 8:30pm, we found one of our pillows with make-up (decided not to tell the staff) and bed seemed not to be very clean
Friendly, attentive and helpful staff - made us enjoy the time at the riad. Rooms decorated nicely, everything very clean. A quiet and cozy place located on the edge of the Medina, tucked away in a small alley.
We stayed 4 nights and had nothing to complain about.
