We stayed at Riad Karmela for a four day break, the Riad and its location is excellent, just a two minute walk from the souk and less than ten minutes from the main square. Down a winding alley through almost unnoticeable doors, you find the very pretty Riad Karmela and smaller ‘Petit Karmela’ which is directly opposite. We took the... More

Our group of 7 ladies stayed with Riad Karmela last week (April 2014) and enjoyed it very much. We actually stayed at Riad El Nour, 5 metres down the same alley as Karmela and for our stay had it to ourselves - the rooms are set around a central enclosed courtyard which was very peaceful. The staff team were very... More

We booked Riad El Nour for seven ladies travelling to Marrakech for a break in the sunshine. Right from the start the communication was excellent unlike many other Riads that we emailed. Joel runs a tight ship, all of the staff were very helpful and could not do enough for us; anything from arranging trips to the Atlas mountains and... More

A group of ladies keen to sample the sights smells and sounds of the souk. And then retire to a welcome quiet space. The view of the snow capped mountains over the rose coloured town from the Riad Karmela rooftop terrace as the sun went down was simply breathtaking. The staff were very helpful and able to arrange taxis out... More

I will start this review by stating that if we have originally booked the Riad Karmela, and stayed in the room we were finally given, then this review would quite probably have been for 5 stars. However this wasn’t the case. Our original booking was for the Riad El Nour, a smaller Riad but part of the same group as... More

A fantastic riad, down quite a few alley ways but easy to find once you get your bearings ! Breakfast was a buffet style which was excellent. Rooms ok beds a little hard. Water and toiletries supplied. Good service and the seating areas in the courtyards and terraces are excellent. Would definately stay again.

I really liked this place very much, I stayed maybe 3 times there, first with MIL that are 80 and 86 y o, and it was really nice because they accommodated them very well as they couldn't use the stairs, we were not in the main Riad, we had the next door Riad but I remember we had noisy neighbors,...

Hello I am so sorry at you had such an impression during your last and 3d stay. I understand that you had a challenging experience with the trolley man helping you with the luggage from the parking and this has a cost as it is their job and it is normal to pay for the service. This situation with your... More

Riad Karmela is just fantastic a real get away from all the hustle bustle of Marrakech. It's so peaceful and relaxing and really feels like your own exotic holiday home. I've stayed in a lot of great hotels but this was by far my favourite. The service is great they really can't do enough for you. Food was yummy and... More

We stayed there last summer for three nights, it is completely magical. After walking down side roads in the Medina and then arriving in the Riad it is wonderful. Joel helped us find our bearings so a big thank you to him! Can't wait to get back there one day.

We stayed for 3 nights. Beautiful, great location and excellent, friendly staff. Rooms were gorgeous and seating areas fantastic. It is down a side street so difficult to initially find but safe area.
