Just back from a truely relaxing break at the Shemsi. From pick up at the airport to departure this riad met and exceeded our expectations. As advised by others in previous reviews do book the riad to pick you up as it is located in a hard to find part of the Kasbah. Despite a two hour wait in passport...

Our stay at Riad Shemsi was just what we needed. Staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was delicious and served with real panache.Our privacy was respected which led to a stress free and relaxing break. The Kasbar location is ideal with one of the cities trending cafés (cafe clock) vitrtually next door. The pool is great for a bracing dip...

We stayed at Riad Shemsi in August 2015 and we really enjoyed our stay. As it happened we were the only guests staying at the Riad that week!

Very comfortable stay- albeit brief! The accommodation is a very good standard. Our room was very comfortable. Unfortunately we only stayed one night in Marrakech as we had been elsewhere in Morocco and we left early the following morning for the airport.
