Very nice apartment and great sleep in the master bed
Vero provided stellar and detailed recommendations for dining and fun. Hassan and Abdul were also fabulous and welcoming. Dar Moha was a wonderful fine dining experience with great live music right next to the apt. Eating in the Medina bullpen of guys pulling on you to eat was fun too. Mint tea is our new favorite drink!
Wonderful from the moment we were picked up too the time we were dropped off at the airport. The properly is better than the photos would indicate. It's clean and cool, and comfortable. The beds are nice and the on-site laundry is an excellent bonus. We had a wonderful meal when we arrived and breakfast every morning.
I can't recommend this riad enough!!!
Perfect for our purposes. Clean and central. Lots of room. Comfortable.
The riad was the perfect oasis of calm after the fast pace of Marrakech days. Our group of 4 spent a week in Marrakech being tourists. Vero gave good pointers to explore the city and her manager, Hassan, was a perfect host. He arranged several tours for us and all worked well. The riad is a very old building with fine architecture and is well kept. The upper deck is the perfect spot for relaxing. The kitchen has minimum amount of supplies needed to function. I recommend it to any travelers who are physically able to walk the lengthy alleyway from the road to the riad. It is wonderful.

"Riad very nice and spacious, located in a residential area, close to the Souks and around 10 minutes from the Jemaa el-Fna. A good place for those who want to have an experience of "resident" of the medina. Hassan was very helpful"

We arrived by flight to Marrakech to be greeted by a painted sunset and Hassan, the caretaker of the Riad. He grabbed our bags and whisked us away winding through the streets of the Medina acting casually as our unofficial guide as we had lots of questions. We were traveling with our 3month old baby and, lucky to us, Hassan speaks English rather well and was available to help us each day. Upon arriving to the nondescript front of the house it opened up to be the spacious oasis that surpassed our expectations. The house was tastefully decorated and comfortably furnished with the website pictures only giving half justice. The week we spent was a mixture of relaxing inside our own Riad and walking through the bustling city, a very nice combination. The only thing we wish is that we planned more time for a few day-trips outside the city. Next time!

"The location met our needs perfectly: everything is in walking distance, taxis and food-shops are on the corners and we found peacefully quiet conditions in a beautiful home in comparison to the noisy streets and places full of people! The name "Cocoon" describes it perfectly! It is an authentic old house with moroccon neighbours, nicely decorated and well equipped.
Hassan and Djamila are really kind and the helping hands we expected. Thank you for answering our millions of questions, for the airport transfers and the organisation of our day-trip to the Ourika Valley. Our daily breakfast and the freshly cooked moroccan dinner by Djamila were SUPER!
Even if the weather was changing - sometimes hot and sunny, but often cloudy, some heavy rain and cold nights - we felt safe and comfortable in and outside the house.
The riad is located at Dar El Bacha, ideally located for exploring the medina of Marrakech: souks, Jemaa El Fna square (at a 10-minute walk), Marrakech museum, Medersa Ben Youssef, Majorelle garden, Bahia palace, Saadian tombs... The riad is located in a quiet derb (small street without car). Taxi station at a 3-minute walk from the Riad.
