Riad Laurence Olivier

Riad Laurence Olivier is a magnificent and authentic riad in the heart of the Medina of Marrakech, close to Marrakech golf courses, hammam, large garden and heated pool

In summary 

Riad Laurence Olivier is a large private riad of classical architecture offering to its guests all the wonders of traditional Oriental decor. You will not find here the modern touch that suits many riads in Marrakech. Instead you will be transported in a luxurious atmosphere recalling the past splendours of Morocco and Syria, a subtle mix of marble, precious woods, stucco and beautiful fabrics.

Our Guest Reviews

Nothing to metion!
Hervorragende Hospitality und aussergewöhnlich gute Ausstattung für ein Riad. Eigener Garten mit großem Schwimmbad, zwei Dachterassen, etc.
Zwei Mal wurden fremde / zukünftige Kunden während unseres Aufenthalts im Riad empfangen. Dies wurde auch nicht mit uns vorher abgesprochen. Es entspricht nicht meinem Anspruch an Privatsphäre und exklusiver Nutzung.
Im Detail könnte bei der Sauberkeit, z.B. unter der aussergewöhnlichen Duschwanne, noch mehr Beachtung geschenkt werden.
EVERYTHING! The whole experience was absolutely incredible. All of the staff were helpful, especially Simone!
There was nothing that we wish had been different, everything was perfect.
La piscine est un véritable atout
Le charme de la maison décorée avec beaucoup de goût
La double terrasse
La gentillesse du personnel
Le confort et le calme
Les bouteilles d'eau payantes (vu la qualité des prestations proposées, nous étions étonnés d'avoir à régler en fin de séjour les bouteilles d'eau consommées, sans avoir été prévenus au préalable. Dans les riads que nous avons fréquentés, il y avait une bouteille d'eau par jour dans chaque chambre).
Des tortues font leur besoin dans les parties communes
la décoration, l'organisation générale, l'espace piscine et les terrasses
Amazing staff. ***** service
A bit cold at night in bedrooms
Très beau riad dans un quartier typique

Mathilde de Villanovo a été très sympathique et attentive à nos demande.
En revanche, je ne conseillerais forcément pas le prestataire Dunes & Désert, le cadre manque un peu de charme et d'authenticité.
Magnificent villa in an working class area of the medina. Great staff and fabulous decor.
Location was problematic.
Proprietaire omni present malgré une privatisation du Riad ...

- Le très bon personnel sur place: Amina la femme de ménage, Raduan le gardien de nuit, Neza la cuisinière, Fatira la masseuse, Ali et Simon, notre super chauffeur de taxi Abdu Passepartout, et sans oublier notre chère Khadija!!!
Nous n'avons pas connu la propriétaire Laurence mais elle a su s'entourer d'une excellente équipe. Grâce à eux nous avons passé 4 jours inoubliables!
- Le riad en lui même est somptueux, confortable, très propre et doté d'une VRAI piscine parfaitement entretenue dans le jardin.
- Le petit déjeuner délicieux et copieux (jus d'oranges pressées, thé à la menthe, café, 4 sortes de pains et crêpes locaux, 4 confitures différentes, sans oublier de la "vache qui rit"!!!...)
- Suite à un vol de sac de l'une d'entre nous sur un boulevard, le personnel a été vraiment aux petits soins pour nous et nous a guidé dans les différentes démarches administratives gratuitement (taxi d'Abdu)!!!
Je crois que vous pouvez venir dans ce riad les yeux fermés, vous ne serez pas déçus.

Très bon encadrement de la part de villanovo qui a su faire le lien entre le riad et nous avant de partir et répondre à toutes nos questions.

L'une d'entre nous s'est fait voler son sac par un motard à 500m du riad avenue Imam El Ghazali. Il faut donc suivre les conseils de Khadija pour se rendre dans la médina et rester dans les petites ruelles où personne ne prend le risque de vous voler car il serait arrêter par les passants.
Absolutely beautiful riad, from the central living area including the courtyard, fountain/pool, to the library, hamman, and two level private roof terrace/deck. The furnishings and design are beautiful. We rented all four bedrooms for two families. One bedroom is quite a bit larger and has a larger sitting area as well as a second sitting room and/or place for a third person to sleep, which worked well for our group. The other three bedrooms are smaller and narrower, but this is necessitated by the design of just about all the riads with narrow rooms around the central courtyard. The location is an easy 10-15 minute walk from the souks and central square, and is pretty easy to find/access from the road around the medina (it is on the edge). The food was excellent, both the breakfasts, as well as the two dinners we arranged in the riad. The staff was attentive and helpful. Massage/hamman experience also very good (a private hamman on the third floor off the terrace). The local somewhat confused rooster crowing at 1am added a special something!
The lighting could have been a bit brighter in the bedrooms. If Laurence herself will not be in residence while you are visiting, it would be helpful if a guest speaks French or Moroccan Arabic. The rest of the staff really do not speak English at all, other than Abdo the driver who knows some but is not around except when he is driving you.
Nous avons passé un excellent moment à Marrakech et vous remercions de votre organisation. J'en profite pour vous demander quelle seraient les disponibilités de la Villa Quierro - Tanger - La Montagne pour fin Avril. Merci par avance. Sarah
