Luxury Riad Al Moussika in Marrakech - Clients Comments

Lovely Riad - good food and very helpful staff - The Manager was particularly nice and attentive. Riad quiet at night and only about 10 mins from the bustle of the square & Souks. Watch the mopeds on the narrow streets there are some mad drivers. Tour guides can take you to expensive shops in the hope of getting commission. When buying start by offering 25% of the asking price. Watch out for "buy one get one free" as you may be charged for the lot at the till! The trips run by "The Best of Morocco" are good value and the Atlas Mountain Trips are a must. The Hammam at the Riad is a great experience not to be missed! R.S. in April 2010
We had a wonderful holiday in Marrakech. Your recommendation of Al Moussika was excellent. It is in an ideal location, it is run extremely well, everyone was very friendly and positively helpful, the physical accommodation was lovely with good facilities and lots of variety and space, and the fare was delicious. We visited one or two other Riads, mainly larger, and always decided that we were extremely happy where we were. It felt like home. We would recommend it to anybody without hesitation for anyone NOT wanting the highlife and glitz of a large modern hotel; we will certainly return. Some people may find it expensive - we are happy to pay for simple but interesting luxury with excellent service, which is what we got. R.B. in March 2010
Thank you all for an unforgettable holiday we spent with you in your glorious Riad. We felt as if were so at home . Everyone was so kind and thoughtful and nothing was too much trouble. The Riad is so beautiful, an oasis so perfectly located within the vibrant city. Returning from our daily expeditions we were instantly relaxed and spoilt. Our room with the private patio overlooking the courtyard was so tranquil and the beds were so comfortable. We were able to really rest despite being in the middle of the Medina. R.C. in January 2009
Pure style and substance. Giovanni and his team provided an idyllic stay and the cuisine was of an extremely high standard. E.H. in November 2007
We just wanted to let you know that the high level of comfort, service and general ambience that you have created is still a vivid memory. We so much enjoyed our short stay and wish that we could return more frequently. Thank you for helping to make our holiday so memorable. C&A.McC. in March 2007
Hi Giovanni
Back in UK now 8-10 degrees centigrade. No more breakfasts in the courtyard, and no more superb lunches.
The few days that we stayed with you were most memorable. The Riyad is magificent in terms of decoration and creature comforts. The staff are most attentive and helpful, I hope you will pass on our best regards to them all.
We hope to come back to Morocco in the future and we certainly include your Riyad in our plans. M & C. F. in February 2007
Dear Giovanni
As promised last week I said I would send an email recording what a fantastic time we had at the Riyad Al Moussika.
The Riyad is splendid both in location and presentation. The staff and service they supplied was tremendous - beyond the call of duty on many occasions - helpful and friendly in guiding us around the labrynthian Medina , the restaurant recommendations were always spot on . And then of course there was our overall host - what can I say ? We enjoyed his hospitality despite the commentary , anecdotes and tales that peppered every conversation - of course I say this in jest because it just added more colour to an already rich and colourful experience , and I would recommend the Riyad and all those involved with it to anyone who cares to visit Marrakesh . So thanks. J.W. in February 2007
Our selection of Al Moussika also added a great deal to our pleasure and satisfaction.We found it to be not only as beautiful as your website indicated but the service was exemplery. We found everything to be so well judged and suited to our tastes. A & C R. in February 2007
Dear Giovanni,
How are you? I just wanted to say thanks again for showing Ben and I such a wonderful time during our stay in Riyad Moussika.
You really made our trip special and are officially my favourite ever hotelier! M. o'R. in December 2006
Dear Giovanni,
From the minute we walked in the door and greeted you we knew this was no ordinary stay. What can one say about wonderful Khalid but that one has to simply taste the magic he concocts? I loved the sense that we were visting you and were guests in your authentic home with all the fine touches from the lovely study where one can curl up with a book or laze upstairs on the terrace while sipping mint tea or watch one a film from your enviable collection of timeless and tasteful movies.
I would recommend anyone looking for a memorable time to come stay at Riyad Moussika. Mrs A. H in January 2006
We stayed in some exquisite places; our particular favourites were ... Riad al Moussika, where we were treated like royalty S.D. in April 2005
Dear Giovanni and Khalid,
Many, many thanks for a delightful, delicious, and wholely enjoyable few days with you over the Christmas period. We arrived exhausted, and left relaxed and sated after feasting all our senses on the wonders of Riyad Al Moussika.
We enjoyed the peace and quiet within the exquisite decor and fastidious restoration of this beautiful riyad, the cordon bleu lunches concocted by Khalid and beautiful served by Anas, Mohanmmed and colleagues, and above all the light but sure touch of Maestro Giovanni, who brought forth great music from the finest orchestra in Marrakesh! L & M in January 2005
Dear Giovanni and Khalid,
This is just a short note to thank you both for making our first visit to Morocco such a memorable experience. The Riyad al Moussika provided the perfect environment for us to explore and also relax. Congratulations on providing the perfect blend of Moroccan hospitality, Italian style and fabulous cuisine. A & E in November 2004
Dear Giovanni,
What an experience it was for us to stay in your wonderful house last week. The decor of the whole Riyad was so stylish, Khalid's food was a delight and beautifully presented, and le patron, well, he just made it all come alive for us.
A truly magical place - thank you for letting us share this with you for a few days. J & B P in October 2004
Dear Giovanni,
We'd just like to say how wonderful our stay was in your stunning house. The Green Room is very comfortable and very luxurious and the food was delicious. Thank you so much for our guided tour of the Souks. We have now learnt a few tips for our next shopping trip. Overall, we felt very spoilt and well-looked after, but most of all, very relaxed. It really is a home away from home (except for the weather and the pool!). A & S G. in September 2004
