Superb Tangier accommodation and Fez hotels: why choose Luxury Riads?

Marrakech-based virtual reservation platform Authentic Luxury Travel is celebrating after two of their luxury riads received the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence 2013.

The certificate is given only to hotels that rank in the top 10% of accommodation based on TripAdvisor ratings, and Authentic Luxury Travel achieved this feat not once, but twice.

In order to receive a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence, a hotel must:

  •     Achieve a consistent rating of more than four out of five stars;
  •     Receive sufficient reviews over the 12-month period;
  •     Rank amongst the top 10% (approximate) of hotels on TripAdvisor.

With over 1,000 Marrakech hotels, inns and bed & breakfasts currently listed on the site, Authentic Luxury Travel's certificate-winning residences are among those scoring well over 80% - and in some cases, over 90%.

Company spokesman Hicham El Mahrab says: "The Certificate of Excellence means these hotels are not just two of the best in Marrakech; it also ranks them in the top 10% of hotels worldwide.

"TripAdvisor is a hugely respected resource with reviews that help holidaymakers all over the world to make their decision of where to stay - and we are very pleased to have received this accolade on not just one, but two of our hotels."

One of the award-winning hotels is the Riad Kasbah in Marrakech, which scored an approval rating of 92% from its reviewers on TripAdvisor, based on almost 70 ratings.

Among those, 46 (68%) gave the accommodation the highest possible rating of "excellent", while a further 16 (24%) rated it as "very good".

Most reviewers were traveling in couples (49%), but the Riad Kasbah has plenty of appeal for other types of traveller groups too; 22% of reviews each were submitted by families and groups of friends.

Described by some as an "authentic oasis", reviewers praised the professional and approachable team for their friendly style, along with the traditional home-cooked Moroccan cuisine served to guests.

Reviews are still open, allowing TripAdvisor users to get the latest up-to-date opinions on the Riad Kasbah, and on Authentic Luxury Travel's other accommodation throughout Morocco, before making a reservation.
