10/10 Exceptional

Not only was this the best property we stayed at in Morocco, but it was hands down the best accommodation I've ever experienced! We stayed in a large family suite and extended our visit. The room was absolutely stunning, the staff were friendly and always available. The serene courtyard helped us feel miles away from civilization - it was the perfect start to our week long Moroccan vacation. We were able to decompress before our adventure. The city of El Jadida was also wonderful because it wasn't filled with tourists.

Charm and Elegance
This is an exceptional place, the atmosphere is total peace and calm, the suites are stunning, breakfast was cooked to order with lots of high quality choice and very tasty. I felt treated like a very special guest, the whole experience was just that, a real experience, i only wish i could have stayed longer. The general manager was welcoming and helpful, and gave a lovely insight into the Riad and its illustrious past. The only thing more perfectly elegant and beautiful than the Riad itself was the charming owner who could not have been more personable and hospitable. I could not fault it.

Unbelievable Stay
I never would have dreamed such an amazing space would exist and we would have an opportunity to stay in a ancient Governor's Villa. The staff were welcoming and helpful. The traditional suite was just gorgeous. The tub was actually luxurious and the breakfast in the living room was delightful. It is a destination spot for sure. If food was served throughout the day, we could have just stayed in the Villa for days.

The property and Riad was amazing. Paolo the host and his staff were so lovely and attentive. We are so grateful that his love and passion for this Riad, his home, is available for the public always, we feel blessed. We’ll be back, I must have been a Morrocan princess in my previous life. Attention to detail, first class. Kellie and Darren Lemon

Spectacular, idyllic, wonderful, simply beautiful!
This was my fourth trip to Morocco, and having stayed in several riads, I can say this was by far the most beautiful, and a perfect place to take my wife on a surprise honeymoon trip. The riad itself is immaculately decorated and designed, and it really does feel as if one has taken a step back in time to stay in Moroccan palace. It has been tastefully and beautifully restored, and has a quite spectacular courtyard garden. We stayed in the Royal Suite, which is simply the most beautiful suite I have ever stayed in - every wall has intricate carvings, the bathroom is an octagonal wonder, and to be honest, it feels unlike staying in a hotel at all. The owner Angelo was extremely welcoming over email the moment we had booked, and the staff we met, Hafid and Sara, were wonderfully accommodating at all times. Having picked up food from the market for lunch, a table was instantly laid for us the moment we returned to the riad, or on another occasion, coffee was brought over to our terrace in the morning without even requesting it, simply to make us feel at home. It's hard to speak of this place highly enough, it was simply the best stay I've had anywhere in the world. El Jadida itself is far from a tourist trap, and a lovely place to explore on one's own without being bothered, whether a walk amidst the faded grandeur of the portuguese citadel, or along the red sand beach for miles on end. Thank you so much to everyone at Riad Dar El Malaika for making our honeymoon unforgettable!
