We're Canadian, first time in Morocco and we've been to 12 countries in the last year and loved this place - great, friendly staff, trustworthy recommendations for day trips, clean and beautiful little oasis. Much better than a big hotel, if you are looking for a more traditional experience - they could have honestly charged more for the quality we... More

The raid was gorgeous. A little oasis. We had a gorgeous room right by the pool. It looked beautiful. However it was extremely noisy. You could hear everything from the pool as the doors where thin and there was a giant hole next to the air-conditioner which was also noisy and didn't work. The was a vent hole in the... More

Finding the entrance can be a bit tricky, but apart from that everything was excellent. The rooms are spacious and clean with aircondition you can regulate for yourself. The atmosphere is very calm, and relaxing by the pool or on the terrase after a long day in the busy streets of Marrakesch is great. The staff are mosly fluid in... More

Beautiful and peaceful riad. Nothing like coming back from a day or evening in the medina to have a dip in the pool or a spot of sunbathing on the roof terrace. Staff were excellent from the day we arrived until the day we left. Food was delicious and a excellent price also.

Coming back to Palais Calipau after long days of excursions couldn't have been more refreshing. A quick dip in the pool cooled us down and the atmosphere was quiet and peaceful. The breakfast could have been expanded. "Continental" didn't quiet fit the bill. 4 carb options (2 different kinds of Baghrir, Msemen, and toasted sliced flat bread) and watermelon, OJ,... More

This immaculately clean, well located oasis. Nice large airy rooms with all facilities and very helpful and obliging staff. Make sure you know the way to the main street when you arrive, don't try and "wing it" as we did; the local boys are ruthless they will lead you round in circles through the maze of backstreets for an hour...

I have just returned from a long weekend and stayed at the Palais Calipau - this place is a gem! from the dinner on the 1st night, to the rooms, huge bathrooms, super comfy bed, wonderful staff and stunning terrace - this place is a must for anyone wanting to stay in the medina

I have just returned with my beloved from my 2nd trip to Marrakech and the staff at the Palais Calipau made this a trip to remember.

Away from the busy medina, but close to many attractions and with a short walk to Jamaa el Fna, this riad is a wonderful surprise at your first step in. Wonderful welcoming and excellent support on the departure with a tea with mint at 5.30am!!

I have just returned from a fantastic stay at this Riad in the Kasbah area of Marrakech. It's quite simply a hidden gem and a perfect peaceful calm oasis in what is a very busy place! We were two female travellers and I have to say we felt very safe and well looked after at the Palais Calipau. The housekeeper... More
