My boyfriend and I stayed at this riad from the start of April 2015 for a week. The Riad is absolutely beautiful and is honestly the most lovely place I have ever stayed. However, I chose to ignore negative reviews before I booked which was a huge mistake. I thought we would not get a room on the bottom floor,... More

My partner booked for us to stay at this riad for 3 nights during April 2015. We were impressed from the outset with the service - our flight to Marrakech landed 2 hours late however the riad spoke to our taxi driver (booked through the riad via email prior to arrival) and arranged for him to wait for us at...

Palais Calipau is a pleasant, restful riad in a central location in the Kasbah area of Marrakesh. The rooms are spacious and comfortable with a safe, there is always hot water, free wifi, plenty of lounging areas and helpful staff. Breakfast consists of well cooked eggs (as in cooked for a long time!), toast, fresh orange juice, tea and coffee.... More

We booked this ryad (or riad) with Expedia as a hotel & flight deal at the beginning of October 2014. When we looked at the photos on the ryad's website and saw plenty of good reviews about this ryad, we simply couldn't believe how lucky we were to find this ryad at such a good price (4 nights + easyJet...

Me and my boyfriend stayed here from 23rd Feb to the 28th Feb this year as a christmas present to me. We arrived and while waiting for our room key we were given biscuits and mint tea and given a map of the area and told best places to visit during our stay. The room was huge, gorgeous! You have...

We stayed here for few nights. As like most riads you wouldnt know it was there from outside. Once inside it has internal court yard with pool. Breakfast and meals served here. Ate here first night on arrival. It is not far from centre...took us a while to get our bearings. We thought it was to a good standard.

I have never written a negative review but feel on this occasion I must. We had organised the airport pickup - but this never happened despite giving flight no. and times. We waited and waited, phoned the riad - nothing we eventually got a taxi at airport which turned out much cheaper. On the 3 day my watch went missing,... More

The Riad interior is set around a calming pool. No formal reception space you are welcomed with Mint Tea, local biscuits and a seat by the cool blue pool whilst all your details are taken. Other reviews talk about the ground floor rooms being slightly more noisy than the first floor. That's true but the airy spacious rooms make up... More

We booked this Riad expecting a relaxing weekend in Marrakech. It is central in the Medina which is good, but we had trouble to find it at first. Had to pay someone to guide the way from the taxi, as you cannot approach it by car. That was a weird situation. The staff is very welcoming and friendly, offered tea... More

Having stayed here lastFebruary we had some high hopes of this having booked into a 5* riad, on first impressions it seemed nice then we got to our room!!! Oh dear how disappointing, we really weren't happy. We had booked a suite with bath, well at first the room looked nice, then quickly you realised there were many issues. Firstly... More
