“Wonderful stay”
Reviewed 17 July 2010 for a stay in June 2010

My husband and I stayed at the riad our first 2 nights in Morocco. Our hosts were very welcoming and extremely helpful. We ate dinner on their rooftop deck (a great place to relax) 2 nights, and the food was some of the best we ate while in Morocco. I definitely recommend staying here. It was a peaceful oasis in the hustle and bustle of Marrakech. La Kasbah is a bit more calm than around the square.

“Fantastic Riad with Unbeatable Service”
Reviewed 10 June 2010 for a stay in March 2010

My girlfriend and I stayed at Riad Awinati in March and absolutely loved it! In décor and amenities Awinati is comparable to other riads I have seen and stayed in. It is conveniently located in the Kasbah district which is a short and relatively simple walk to Djemaa el Fna, the souks and most of the other sites. However, what made Awinati a real gem was the hospitality and service of its caretakers Halima and her husband. They were always available and more than willing to help, from the tea we were offered upon arrival to the suggestions and guide they provided. My girlfriend and I actually had a 24 hr flu during our week stay and Halima went out of her way to help us by preparing special meals, bringing us a constant supply of bottled water, and making trips to the pharmacy (on her time off!!) I can’t say enough about Riad Awinati and especially about the people that make it such a great place.

“Home Away from Home”
Reviewed 19 May 2010 for a stay in May 2010

We have stayed at the Riad Awinati for 5 nights in the middle of May. This place is wonderful, is located in a very convininet location, in the Kasbha only few minutes from the main attractions. They gave us the nicest room, a lovely suite wit a canopy bed, a little sofa and a typical bathroom with a very large shower. The room was very clean and tidy. We want to thank very much Halima and her Husband Nour for taking such a good care of the Riad and the guests as well as Mohamed, the night porter, very kind too. But especially Halima, she is the best, so sweet and kind, she prepared for us every morning a wonderful breakfast on the terrace, and we were always late!!! What we will never foget is her "Lemon Taijine"!! we had dinner once and she prepared a woderful dinner just for us, a maroccan salad, very nice and fresh, the best taijine we have had in all our trip and an orange salad with cinnamon, the table was decorated with flowers and candles, very romantic. We really suggest you to have dinner there at least one time. We really hope to be back soon, thank you!

“Good value”
Reviewed 5 April 2010 for a stay in April 2010

A decent walk from the main square (20 mins), in the kasbah at the very south end of the medina. Near the Saadian tombs.

Great place, the room was lovely, light and spacious, the manager was fantastic - very accommodating. It was cheap. Great roof terrace. Easy to find, main road. Pretty quiet, could hear the call to prayer, but only if I was awake and not very loud.

No one speaks particularly good English, but good enough for most things.

Was a bit annoyed that they gave us a twin room when I had requested a double. And they thought we booked through someone, when I had I booked direct with the owner. However we mentioned our surprise and the guy went and checked and then offered us the double downstairs, which the owner was in (leaving the next day). On balance we declined, the room looked darker, less private and we wanted to get changed and get going! So stayed in the twin.

Our room looked like a kids room, with cats on the bedspreads, and the beds were hard as rocks. Seriously, were they concrete?? but that was the only complaint! It was light, airy, lots of shelving (in a cupboard, so could shut away the mess), bathroom was nice, the only riad we stayed in where the bathroom didn't smell! Lots of room to put things in the bathroom as well, decent shower in a separate cubicle, lots of towels, face cloths even!

Breakfast was OK, no fresh OJ though, disappointing in the orange capital! Pastries were great one day and stale the next. But those were the only complaints there.

The riad itself wasn't as ornate as others. Seemed quite new.

Offered to pick us up from the train station for 15 Euro, which I thought was very steep, so we declined (knew where we were going by then) and got a big taxi for £5. Took their taxi to the airport for 15 Euro and probably shouldn't have, it was only 15 mins. But it seemed easier and we weren't sure on prices / distance.

All in all, for the price, I would thoroughly recommend, as long as you are aware that you're a little way from the square.

Also, had a great meal at Kosybar - pricey (London prices), but a break from cheap Moroccan if you need it and serves alcohol! Nice wine, great food. Moroccan, sushi and western. Highly recommend. Kitchen doesn't open til 8 and worth booking.

“Super Riad with Charm, Comfort - the best in Marrakech”
Reviewed 13 November 2009 for a stay in July 2009

From an unassuming street in the Medina, we entered the magnificent Riad Awinati. We could not have imagined how stylish, beautiful and relaxing Riad Awinati would be within. The courtyard is beautiful with typical Moroccan lanterns and a stunning water feature.

We visited this Riad in the July heat and were warmly welcomed with an ice cold freshly squeezed orange juice and the magnificent Chambre Perle was a delight with a luxurious private bathroom with local soaps and other toiletries. We were very pleasantly surprised by the high qaulity of fixtures and fittings with designer furniture from a French designer based in Marrakech. The beautifully carved ceiling with a heart in one corner is a work of art. Great attention to detail has been paid by the owner in the decoration of the Riad.

For those wishing a lovely tan, the sun terrace apart from offering wonderful views of the Atlas montains is a lovely place to relax and have a lovely breakfast with fresh fruit, freshly squeezed orange juice, local baked pastries and either French coffee or typical local mint tea.

Riad Awinati is situated only 10 minutes away from the Koutoubia Mosque and the Djemma El Fna so perfectly located for access to the activities of the medina.

This is a place to cherish, to relax in, be inspired by and remember forever.

We have no hesitation in recommending this Riad to anybody wishing a lovely stay in Marrakech
