“Such a heavenly experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

I would argue that this is the best riad in the whole of Marrakech, I just don't see how it could be improved upon AT ALL! The quality and attention to detail is astonishing (dressing gowns and slippers provided, straw sun hats provided on the terrace, luxury toiletries, cotton wool, thick and soft towels). The bed and pillows were of the highest quality and extreemly comfortable, the room was spacious and tastefully decortaed in an understated manner, this place just oozes class. The pool, wow such a treat to have a rooftop pool in the medina. It is clean and we didn't have to share it once as even though there are quite a few rooms in this riad, this place really retains a peaceful and authentic vibe. The service is top class, friendly, professional, discrete, I just don't see how it could be impoved upon. We loved that you could eat luch and dinner too (just tell them you want dinner in the morning as they buy everything fresh that day), and dinner is a set menu of the most delicious food! We ate it twice and it was magical, soft music, candles, wine (another rarity in the medina walls) and fabulous fresh food (One nights menu was saffron mouse to start, veggie tagine (chicken for my husband) and the most amazing panna cotta for dessert). Really you must stay here i assure you it's a dream!

Room Tip: Maybe asked for a room on the first floor or top floor for more privacy

The owner guided me in by phone to an area with plentiful parking just inside the medina gates (if you know Marrakech, it is the bab or gate right behind the bus station/gare routiere...opposite the Aswak Assalam). He immediately dispatched a gentleman on a moped to guide us the last 200 meters by foot to the riad and help with our bags.

One of the best things about Riads is feeling like you have stepped out of the hustle and bustle into the calm...Riad Clementine does this to perfection. It is a good 10 degrees cooler and smells divine the moment you enter. The decor is clean, simple and elegant. It has fruit trees and a fountain in the main court yard and Moroccan but modern decor.

The rooms are lovely, spacious and our bathroom had this fantastic dropped tub you have to see to believe. Wonderful bathrobes and a wonderful and clean little pool were so welcome after a hot day in the medina.

The owners can show you how to easily navigate the backroads to the main shopping streets...10 mins max by foot. You can also easily walk to the Majorelle gardens...a wonderful change from the hot and crowded streets. We ate at the Riad two nights in a row (its the easiest option with a baby) and the food both times was excellent. The staff were also friendly and welcoming.

All in all, I can't say a bad thing about it.

Room Tip: We liked our room with the dropped tub. on the same level as the pool.

I'm a hotel snob so spent lots of time looking for a good riad in Marrakech before settling on Riad Clementine. My wife and I were driving around Morocco and wanted to treat ourselves and this riad was the perfect place. The aesthetic is calm and refreshing compared to some other riads that are perhaps truer to historic form but go a bit overboard on mosaics and pillows. The riad is owned by a couple, Antoine and Angela, who were extremely friendly and helpful.

Our room and the bathroom was very nice. The pool and terraces with loungers were a great addition and one of the reasons I picked the riad -- after walking around the souks it was great to come back for a dip in the pool.

It's also got a great location: while it's in the medina it is only a couple blocks from the medina walls, so it was an easy, 15-minute walk into the Ville Nouvelle area of Marrakech. We'd explore the medina during the day and then head into the Ville Nouvelle in the evening for a different atmosphere.

This Riad was recommended by the travel agent and it turned out to be wonderful. We stayed here for two nights and loved every minute of it. The owners provided us with a warm welcome and were on hand to explain all about the riad and its surrounding sights.

The room had a wonderful mix of Moroccan charm complimented by crisp linens and plush towels. The swimming pool (plunge pool) was on the same level as the room, making it great to just jump in after a day seeing the sights.

We made the most of our first evening by having dinner on site which was a set menu. It was beautifully prepared Moroccan food.

This Riad is within the main walls but is a good 15 minute walk from the main square. Is suited us perfectly.

We had a fabolous stay at enchanted Riad Clementine. I can highly recommend this beautiful retread in midst of buzy Marrakech to all those people out there, who adore special interior, sensuality and discrete but very professional service. The hosts and owners are very kind people. We felt at ease and at home. Thank you very much!

Great place to stay, the hosts were friendly and helpful... Breakfast daily was a feast, and the rooms spacious, well decorated and clean.

The roof terrace is great, and unlike many Riads, the pool is on the roof, not on the ground floor, so perfect for sunbathing.

Would definitely return!
