The property and Riad was amazing. Paolo the host and his staff were so lovely and attentive. We are so grateful that his love and passion for this Riad, his home, is available for the public always, we feel blessed. We’ll be back, I must have been a Morrocan princess in my previous life. Attention to detail, first class. Kellie and Darren Lemon

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!
