    Charm and Elegance

    This is an exceptional place, the atmosphere is total peace and calm, the suites are stunning, breakfast was cooked to order with lots of high quality choice and very tasty. I felt treated like a very special guest, the whole experience was just that, a real experience, i only wish i could have stayed longer. The general manager was welcoming and helpful, and gave a lovely insight into the Riad and its illustrious past. The only thing more perfectly elegant and beautiful than the Riad itself was the charming owner who could not have been more personable and hospitable. I could not fault it.

    Unbelievable Stay

    I never would have dreamed such an amazing space would exist and we would have an opportunity to stay in a ancient Governor's Villa. The staff were welcoming and helpful. The traditional suite was just gorgeous. The tub was actually luxurious and the breakfast in the living room was delightful. It is a destination spot for sure. If food was served throughout the day, we could have just stayed in the Villa for days.

    Heaven on Earth in Morocco

    The most heavenly oasis ever. If you are fortunate enough to go to Morocco, rearrange your plans so you can stay at Riad El Malaika. It is gorgeous. The rooms are huge! The staff is amazing and every aspect has been considered and it will exceed your expectations.

    Spectacular, idyllic, wonderful, simply beautiful!

    This was my fourth trip to Morocco, and having stayed in several riads, I can say this was by far the most beautiful, and a perfect place to take my wife on a surprise honeymoon trip. The riad itself is immaculately decorated and designed, and it really does feel as if one has taken a step back in time to stay in Moroccan palace. It has been tastefully and beautifully restored, and has a quite spectacular courtyard garden. We stayed in the Royal Suite, which is simply the most beautiful suite I have ever stayed in - every wall has intricate carvings, the bathroom is an octagonal wonder, and to be honest, it feels unlike staying in a hotel at all. The owner Angelo was extremely welcoming over email the moment we had booked, and the staff we met, Hafid and Sara, were wonderfully accommodating at all times. Having picked up food from the market for lunch, a table was instantly laid for us the moment we returned to the riad, or on another occasion, coffee was brought over to our terrace in the morning without even requesting it, simply to make us feel at home. It's hard to speak of this place highly enough, it was simply the best stay I've had anywhere in the world. El Jadida itself is far from a tourist trap, and a lovely place to explore on one's own without being bothered, whether a walk amidst the faded grandeur of the portuguese citadel, or along the red sand beach for miles on end. Thank you so much to everyone at Riad Dar El Malaika for making our honeymoon unforgettable!

    Fabulous

    Following AppleMaps directions, we turned off the main street down a narrow alley and didn't readily see Riad Dar El Malaika, so we asked a man walking out of his house for help. He didn't know the riad, but started knocking on doors until we found 26 Rue du Docteur Blanc. We were welcomed by the amiable and helpful Abel and thoroughly enchanted by the elegant, old, and beautifully maintained riad, which is built around a wonderful garden with two fountains. We were shown to the Gardenia room on the ground floor, which had high cielings and amazing plaster scroll work and we spent a very comfortable two days there, enjoying both our room and the garden as well as the peace and quiet. Breakfast was excellent and moroccan tea available anytime upon request. Both the Cite Portugaise and the local souk were within easy walking distance and there was a grocery store and ATM a block away. While the neighborhood isn't fancy, it felt very safe and we were able to park our car on the street (for only 15 dirham/day). The Riad Dar El Malaika is a real find and a very special place to stay.

    RIAD PAZZESCO! Da mille e una notte

    Il riad è bellissimo il personale attento ed educato . El Jadid non è niente di che quindi non è all’altezza del riad. esperienza che consiglio di fare per una notte (noi ne abbiamo fatte di più) ma una secondo me è sufficiente
