We have just returned from our break in Marrakech and stayed 5 days at the Riad Altair. They arranged collection from the airport and welcomed us with tea and biscuits. Once we'd settled into our comfortable room we had a wander to get our bearings before dinner. The Riad were able to cater for both a veg and non veg...

We couldn't fault it. The staff were outstanding and all the meals were fabulous. We arranged trips through the hotel and the driver was very polite and friendly. Would recommend trips to Ilmil and Essouria. Overall a great stay.

The meals were cooked fresh on site and to your specific requirements. This was a traditional Riad with only 6 rooms which was exactly what we were looking for. It did...

I rarely write reviews but this was an experience that demanded one, if only to praise the excellent staff. The location is ideal. It’s impossible to find the first time, like most Riads in the medina, so book a transfer with the Altair. Their choice was far superior to the BA option on the way out and cheaper too. Our...
