I don't usually write reviews, however as I use trip advisor regularly to 'check things out' I felt I had to contribute after such a wonderful trip. I researched Riads in the Medina thoroughly as I am VERY fussy!!! I finally settled on Riad Clementine and all I can say it that if you are going to Marrakech then you must stay here. The owners - Angela and Antoine, have clearly put their heart and soul into the Riad. They strive to make your stay as comfortable as possible and nothing is too much trouble for them. We stayed in Room 5, which was on the first floor with the pool and would highly recommend this room. We had a huge bathroom and the room was beautiful with lots of authentic little touches. We swam in the evening and sometimes we were the only ones using the pool so felt like we had a private terrace. Sun hats and towels were provided for everyone so you don't need to bring towels! Our rooms were cleaned regularly and someone came in to close the curtains each night! It was my partners birthday when we were there so we booked to eat in the Riad on the first night and they made a special effort of bringing a cake out with candles and singing Happy Birthday to him - thankyou Angela - it was a lovely surprise for him! We only stayed for 3 nights and wished it had been longer! We ate in the Riad once and ate out twice at restaurants and I must say, the food in the Riad was by far the best meal we had there. If we had stayed longer we would have eaten there for the rest of our stay. We were recommended La Sultana restaurant by a friend and whilst this was in a very plush and beautiful Riad, the whole evening seemed to lack atmosphere. Trip advisor had stated that it had a beautiful terrace with wonderful views over the Medina which was not true. Yes, it had a wonderful terrace, and a romantic setting, however there were no views at all. The meal was quite expensive (we had the taster menu), and the entertainment ( a man singing with his guitar) was quite annoying after a while! The last night Angela recommended Le Marrakchi, which was in the square. This meal was half of the price of La Sultana and we enjoyed it much more. The restaurant is air conditioned with fantastic views over the square and the meal was great though still not as good as the Riad! Angela was also fantastic with her advice in regards to dealing with the hustle and bustle of the Medina. The first day was quite daunting and she explained to us that we need to be firmer and how much we would need to pay in taxi fares etc.! Tip - make sure the taxi knows where he is going as we had one who didn't know the way to the new part of town and stopped to ask his friend and then still dropped us miles away from where we wanted to be!!!!! We also took a tour to the Atlas mountains which Angela arranged - this was a day trip which I thoroughly recommend. I could go on forever about how wonderful our stay was! I would just like to thank Angela and Antoine (and Mohammed) for making our stay so wonderful and will recommend Riad Clementine to everyone.
