My daughter and I traveled to Marrakech for four days, and we chose this riad because of its sheer beauty and light color scheme in the rooms, plus the pool.We have received a warm welcome by the owner, Corinne and her team. Everything was done with great attention to details and great hospitality. Not to mention that I lost an heirloom ring in the pipe in the middle of the night. The staff retrieved it for me, with such a genteel and understanding manner, I was so embarrassed, but so appreciative.We would highly recommend this riad.

I have nothing but great things to say about the Riad Cocoon. We stayed here for two nights in November 2023. This was the end of our trip to Morocco and we saved the best for last. The Riad Cocoon is stunningly beautiful and is a sanctuary in the busy city. Everyone who works here is really helpful and friendly. Corinne is great!! She made up a personalized list of recommendations for our stay in Marrakech and really helped to make our stay a great one. We stayed in the Nirvana suite and we ate dinner both nights at the Riad on the terrace, the food was excellent. I highly recommend the Riad Cocoon! If you're looking for a great place, you've found it.

My stay at Riad Cocoon was wonderful. Corrine and her staff (especially Jemaa) were so helpful with everything I needed. Helping me arrange taxi's, making reservations and providing tips and advice for the area. I had to move to another Riad as her's was booked the remainder of my stay and when I couldn't get a hold of them she went above & beyond to help me and ensure someone would be there to help me with all my luggage. Highly recommend this Riad and will definitely be back.

Our stay at Riad Cocoon was amazing! We went for a long weekend in January to celebrate my husband’s birthday and had the best time. Before even arriving, Corinne was so helpful with recommendations via email and helped us book the hot air balloon excursion, airport transfers and some dinners in advance (her recommendations were all spot on too!) After arriving, we were warmly welcomed. The riad itself is a lovely tranquil escape from the busy Medina, very affordable, and all of the staff were extremely friendly. Breakfast and dinner at the riad were absolutely delicious. We went for the 3 course dinner meal and it did not disappoint. They also have a rooftop terrace that is great for an afternoon glass of wine and to catch some sunshine. I would highly recommend Riad Cocoon - thank you Corinne, Hamza & Jama especially for making our stay so wonderful!
