Beautiful stay - and ultra instagrammable! - Jun 3, 2019
ROOM – We stayed in a gorgeous, spacious, blue themed room. It was very large with a comfortable firm double bed. The room was really beautiful with traditional Moroccan style furnishings. The room has excellent AC and proper windows which close fully (unlike like some other Riad hotels I have stayed in). The bathroom was clean and practical, built in a typical style with stunning blue mosaic tiles. We loved the bathroom amenities too! LOCATION- The Riad Lawrence Olivier is in a great area of Marrakech, in the Old Town medina area of the city, about 10 minutes walk from the busiest areas and restaurants. It feels very safe around this part of the medina and I enjoyed walking around the quiet streets and taking photos. I also walked to the Koutoubia mosque from the riad very easily. FACILITIES – The entire riad is simply stunning and so photogenic, I don’t know what my favourite part of it was! I loved the cool central courtyard with lovely trees and greenery surrounding a picturesque mosaic tiled fountain water feature. I also thought the roof terrace was fantastic, with sun beds, tables and chairs, wonderful plants, and views across the city in every direction. The highlight for most people is probably the large swimming pool which is in full sunlight at around midday, but in part shade in the morning and late afternoon. Overlooking the pool is a very pretty tiled yard with daybeds, and another impeccable mosaic water feature. FOOD – We loved our breakfast every morning at Riad Lawrence Olivier! It was always delicious and picture perfect. It was great that we could choose a different spot to eat every morning (we ate on the roof one day and by the pool another day). The coffee was good and we enjoyed the traditional tea as well. The fresh orange juice and delicious seasonal fruit bowls were a highlight, as were the fresh baked roti pancakes and home made fig jam. STAFF – Simmo the doorman, and acting manger was lovely. His English is not perfect, but he is very good at his job, very pleasant to deal with, and offers great suggestions for restaurants and cafes as needed.« less ...

The best staff! - Apr 24, 2019
Our room was beautiful! We were three people and we had one large room with a full sized bed, a couch and TV, a bathroom that connected to a smaller room with another bed and small table. The staff were very accommodating! They even made us a full spread of breakfast at 4am before our flight. The breakfast was very good, traditional Moroccan breads and pastries. The only thing is that it smelled like horses near the pool which was a little unpleasant. But other than that, had a great stay.« less ...
