THE Riad in MarrakechPosted Oct 13, 2012
Pros: The decor in the Riad, the people, the location... Just everything
Cons: Maybe the water pressure in the shower
Location: Couldn't be better!
So nice! A very friendly Riad in the Medina. I felt immediately Moroccan air with an exotic spirit.

A riad with the most beautiful people!Posted Jul 6, 2012
Pros: The staff - lovely, beautiful inidividuals!
Location: Location is in the rural part of Marrakesh- and situated close to the markets- which was ideal
I had the best experience at the Riad Da Najat - i did not have the chance of meeting Oliver the owner of the Riad (who is a great man) but his staff were soooo wonderful and caring - Amine was my best friend on this trip - smashing personality and escorted me everywhere, showed me the best parts of Marrakesh and i had my first experience of riding on a mo ped- very exciting for me. Mahmood was great also - fun guy with so many interesting topics to share while i was around. He was definitely great company. Aisha is a great cook - food at the Riad was rich and enticing- portions large and satisfying. She is a lovely person as well as humble and fun to be around,and a second lady though I cannot remember her name. Guests at the Riad were all like family - was comforting! The Riad itself was mesmerising - it is not in the busiest part of town but it is so perfect, quiet and breathtakingly traditional. I will go again not just for the great Riad but for the beautiful staff i was blessed to meet. Oliver was a hand whenever i called him, i felt he was right beside me. He also assisted my daughter and I with changing our booking after British Airways cancelled our flight. So we owe Oliver alot. We return soon to see you all!!!!!

Riad Dar Najat in MarrakechPosted Feb 5, 2012 on Hotels.com
Beautifully appointed traditional style Riad (built around a courtyard). Wonderful staff, excellent food and very hospitable owner. Close to the Jamaa el Fna square yet far enough from the madding crowd.

An oasis in a busy cityPosted Oct 23, 2011
Location: We walked to the Tannery. Don't go if you have a weak stomach as the smell is strong but you do get used to it. I didn't realise people worked so hard. This is how it has been done for centuries so you get to see the old Medina in its original state. Dont be surprised if people tell you you are going the wrong way. They will take you on a different route but if you stick to your free map you get at the airport or in the hotel, you wont go to wrong. If you do get lost or fall for the 'lost' directions, they will want a small fee at the end. Change or a small note will do especially as you didn't ask for the advice. Young children are probably the worst as they know all the tricks but they will get you to your destination.It just might take longer. Obviously, you can't go to Marrakech without going to the main square. Vibrant, busy colourful, everything you would expect for Souks and market stalls. The orange stalls are 4 dirham a glass of delicous fresh orange juice. Olives and dried fruits are also worth trying but do eat on the stalls.I have a sensitive stomach and I had no problems eating here. All very delicious especially stall no 1. We walked to the Kazba ( castle) only to find it was closed. They do seem to close at random times so check before setting out. The Jardin Marjorelle was lovely but not so big. Can visit it in a few hours no problem. We did walk everywhere and I think we saw more in doing so. It is achievable.
Beautiful Riad. Very Morroccan in furnishings and tastefully done. The staff and owner were so helpful. As Oliver said, this is your home while you are here so enjoy and we did. The hot tub in the afternoon was a treat that only my partner and I seemed to use. They prepared it for us at a regular time during the day which was about 2.30 pm, just when we had arrived back from sightseeing and needed a few hours to relax in the warm sun. They all speak reasonable English although French is spoken fluently of course. We loved it for the sociable side if you wanted it or if you wanted to be alone and chill, you just did. very pleasant stay indeed.

Best place to stayPosted Aug 15, 2011 on Hotels.com
All the fantastic reviews are true !! For our first time in Marrakech, we wanted to stay in an authentic and original Riad…so we chose Dar Najat after reading all the positive reviews…..we were not disappointed and it exceeded all our expectations…after being met at the airport (the rate includes free transfer to and from the airport which takes the hassle out of your journey) we received a very warm welcome from the fantastic Oliver and his lovely team of staff with welcome drinks and lots of good advice….Oliver showed us the way to the main square which is only a few minutes away and gave us a mobile phone to use for the duration of our stay in case we got lost or needed any help..this is such a nice touch as places are’nt always easy to find in Marrakech…the Riad itself is beautiful, with lots of lovely chill out areas, including a rooftop terrace with a view of the Atlas Mountains and a Jacuzzi to cool off in the 40 degree heat ! The rooms are all individually furnished, with wonderful African artwork on the walls and the attention to detail in Oliver’s design of the Riad is amazing. This is such a laid back place to stay and we were treated as friends rather than customers ..we must say a special thank you to the great team of staff …Amin , Maroc, and all the lovely ladies, one of whom walked us all the way to a restaurant we had made a reservation for, as it was near to her home and we never would have found it on our own in the maze of the streets ( Gastro MK…if you get the chance to go is amazing ) It was Ramadan while we were there, and considering how difficult it must have been for them, not to be able to eat or drink all day but to be serving us with breakfast, food and drinks, nothing was too much trouble……thanks Amin for booking restaurant reservations, getting our bus tickets and arranging taxi’s etc etc…..and a big thankyou to Oliver for allowing us to swap two nights in Marrakech for two nights in his other fabulous Riad in Essouira…fantastic seaside town with a lovely breeze and a laid back vibe (sort of Marrakech’s answer to Brighton) .. it was great to experience this place also. Thankyou Oliver , Souad and all at Riad Dar Najat for a wonderful first experience of Marrakech….we will be back one day….it’s nice to go away and feel like we have met new friends, instead of just being another customer in a hotel….if you like the personal touch , you must stay at Dar Najat !!! Hope to see you all again soon Oliver…Thanks so much “mon cherie” Josie and Mike.
