Overview

Riad Papillon is located in the fashionable antique district of the famous old Marrakech Medina. J Very close to the fashionable Dar El Bacha palace, only 5 minutes' walk from the souks and under 10 minutes' walk from the main square, Place Jemma el Fna. Set at the end of a short alley off the wide pedestrian and scooter thoroughfare, only a couple of minutes’ walk from taxi access, it is situated in an antique dealers’ district.

The delightful roof terrace has view out over to the Atlas Mountains on a clear day with a Berber tent, sun loungers and barbeque. This is a perfect spot to enjoy breakfast at your leisure or gather in the evening for a meal.

Of the five bedrooms three, Bouganvilla, Jasmine and Rose are onto the ground floor courtyard with access to the pool. The second two (Geranium and Hibiscus) are on the first floor with an open “bhou” sitting room with fireplace. Each bedroom has a hand carved queen sized bed which may be converted into twin beds - the flexibility to sleep up to 10 people in single beds when required is a particular advantage for groups of singles. All rooms have air-conditioning, heating, Satellite TV, iPod docking stations, mini fridge, Wi-Fi, hairdryers, top quality sprung mattresses, 300 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets, hypoallergenic pillows and en suite bathrooms with showers – Room Jasmine also has a bath and the Rose room may sleep a third person.

  • We had a wonderful time! Our transfers (besides a bit of a wait when we arrived) were smooth. The gentleman that drove us to and from the airport also drove us to our hike and he was very nice and helpful, clean car and very accommodating.
    Our tour guide on the first day, Mandy, was charming and insightful. It was a slow day in the markets but we appreciated the space and gave us a chance to hear all about the Souks. The gentlemen who was with her was a wealth of knowledge and both did a very nice job!
    Our hike was awesome and our guide was great- he even took us to a cool waterfall and took great care of us; lunch in the mountains was delicious!
    The hotel was so lovely and the staff was very accommodating and helpful. The food was great and the rooms very comfortable!
    I did a good amount of damage in the market (often accused of being Berber;) and truly hope to be back next Spring... maybe a girls trip or perhaps I’ll bring my kiddos!
    Thank you for organizing such a nice getaway for my husband and I; we will confidently recommend Tourdust to our friends!!

  • Wow, we had a brilliant time!! Not sure where to start…

    Transport was great, very reassuring to have all that taken care of and all drivers were polite and helpful. Good to know in advance to have some dirham ready for tips.

    Treking: Our guide Hassan, muleteer Centim and chef were great. We’d never been guided before and were a little worried about how it would all work out but Hassan went at a pace that worked for us, always made sure we knew where we were going and happy to answer questions but also to give us some space. Food was such a treat! Beautiful locations and we were thoroughly looked after.

    Accommodation. Mountain lodge were brilliant. Very cold at night in Imlil so glad to have layers. Staff helpful, food plentiful and delicious. Ouirgane Eco Lodge was a real treat after the mountains. And the riad. Oh my goodness. We loved it! Breakfast on our own terrace, a pool to cool off in. So much space and so beautifully decorated. We couldn’t believe it was ours for the period of time and a great respite from the hustle and bustle of the souks.

    The balance of the trek and city was great for us, kids saw all kinds of things in both places that really opened their eyes. Weather was very kind to us so it was an extra treat to have the sunshine.

    It definitely felt like a real adventure and something that we’ll always remember as a family.

    We had plenty of info from Tourdust and plenty of prompt replies as my queries popped up.

  • The whole holiday start to finish was just fabulous, the accommodation was perfect and to a certain extent stunning at the Dar Hosnia in Marrakech.

    The transport, guides and staff at both locations were wonderful with a special mention to the Douar Samra team in Imlill. They were more than a bit special.

    The food at both locations was excellent and the ambience and fun we enjoyed in Douar Samra was beyond all expectations.

    We made many new friends whom I am sure we will keep in touch with way beyond this holiday.

    You put together a perfect package it was much more than just a great holiday it was a richly rewarding experience.

    Just finally to say a big thank you to you for organising one of the best trips we have had.
