... they follow you around pretending to be tourists guides, they beg you for money, they won't leave you alone … David chats to everybody and I totally loose it!! Luckily we only planned to spend one night in Tanger and the next day we quickly worked out how to get to the next destination, Tetuan.
Tetuan wasn’t a particularly touristy town, perhaps because there wasn’t much to see and do but we enjoyed our stay. Our Riad, Riad Blanco was a delight. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Riad Hayati Marrakech
This was our first visit to Marrakech and our stay at Riad Hayati complemented it in so many ways. From the hustle and bustle of the Souks (about 5 mins walk away) we found peace and relaxation in the Riad. Everything was made so easy for us, the Riad offers guides for trips to the Souks, tips on restaurants, tea whenever we wanted, gorgeous home-cooked local cuisine, beautiful rooms, warm hospitality and charm all provided with light background music and a tweeting canary in the corner of the open courtyard.
For some years now I have tried to make significant wedding anniversaries 'special' by planning memorable trips away with my wife, Emma. We started gently at the 5 year point with a visit to the Park ...Central Park in New York, progressing at 10 years to a night at the Opera...the State Opera in Vienna, through to a 15 year celebration to see a Flower Show.... Monet's Waterlillies in the Orangerie in Paris. So here we are this year at our 20th Anniversary, and I was in need of another interesting trip that will delight and guarantee me enough Brownie points to see me through the next 5 years...
A wonderful place
I have stayed at Riad Hayati several times and it is simply the best riad in Marrakech. I have stayed in a number of others and most are too flashy or too expensive. But for exquisite serenity inside a hot and hassly Marrakech, the riad is just perfect.
I stayed several nights at the Riad Hayati. It is an oasis of
calm, in a good location in the old city, but away from the noise
and bustle of the square. The brother/sister caretaking team
provide excellent service. The Riad has only 3 guest rooms,
so it feels like its your own house. The interior design is
simple,yet elegant. I loved the atmosphere, and it was so relaxing to go back there after a day in the busy medina.
We stayed six nights at Riad Hayati, and it was a magical experience at an exquisite gem of a place. The city is fascinating, but the Riad provides the perfect counterpoint to its bustle. We spent many afternoons relaxing on the roof-terrace, sipping the excellent rosé, enjoying a mint tea or drinking a freshly squeezed orange juice, all of which were instantly offered, as we returned from outings.
The perfect Riad experience
Simply put, the Riad Hayati made our trip to Morocco. It could not have been more perfect: ideally situated, charming staff, tastefully decorated, excellent food. Our trip to Morocco included a couple brief stints in Marrakech during which we sampled a total of 4 riads all in the same price range, and the Hayati was far and above the rest. A little sanctuary within the medina.
