“Good location and friendly staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013 via mobile

We enjoyed our stay for three nights at Cariina. The room was comfortable and staff welcoming. We were collected from the airport and welcomed with mint tea. Staff happily helped with restaurant reservations and arranged a visit to their other riads for a traditional haman. The rooms are all set round a courtyard so the only downside to that was the noise that came from other guests having early breakfasts, but I suspect this is a common feature of raids and if you are not an early riser and are easily disturbed by noise, go for a more western style hotel.

Stayed October 2012, traveled with friends

The staff at Riad Carina were very welcoming. The rooms are well presented and cleaned daily. Breakfast on the rooftop terrace was great too and we also did the cookery course which was basic but nice nonetheless, especially eating our creations on the candle it terrace in the evening.
All in all I would recommend the Riad to anyone who wanted a relaxing stay in the old quater or Marrakech.

Just got back from a fantastic break in Marrakesh. I would recommend this riad to anyone visiting Marrakesh. We found the staff very friendly and helpful, on our second day we asked them to arrange a guide to take us on a tour of the city and it was so worth while, we got a good feel for the place and felt much happier about getting around.
We ate at the Riad twice, the food was different but delicious. Our room was really clean and comfortable.
It has a great roof top terrace which we spent a good few hours a day sunbathing and drinking mint tea on, whilst watching the storks.
I would love to stay here again and do a trip to the mountains.

Excellent location, great food, very friendly and helpful staff, beautiful hotel. Fantastic value for money.
I would 100% recommend this hotel, I had a lovely time, and will be returning. You feel very safe and relaxed when in the hotel it is very peaceful. Which is perfect after a busy day out in Marrakech.

A thoroughly enjoyable stay for two nights in Riad Carina, I wish we had booked our last night for here as well. All the staff were very friendly and helpful, our roof top room was perfect, and excellent value for money. It is ideally situated as well, close to many of the attractions, but in a position that is perfect for escaping the busy streets as well.

We stayed at the Riad Carina for 6 days in Feb. It was my first visit to Marrakech & I enjoyed it very much.
The Riad is situated approx 1/2 mile from the main square. But this is easily accessible along a narrow street surrounded by all the shops, hagglers, beggars, guitar players... all of whom are friendly & trying to catch your eye & invite you into their shops.
On arrival at the airport we had booked a taxi through the hotel & were taken almost to the door, I would imagine its not an easy place to find on your first visit, but then the whole of the medina is a maze.

The inside of the Riad is the complete opposite of the rest of the city. Here you can relax in the peace & quiet with jugs of mint tea, sitting downstairs on the cushions or sit on the roof & watch the storks building nests.
We had a meal in the Riad & this was for me probably best meal we ate in the city. We enjoyed it so much that we had a cookery lesson with Aziza, which we can recommend.
The rooms are all clean & comfortable, even the showers are hot.

All the staff are friendly & helpful & they never let my lack of French stop them helping us.. :-)

When I come back to Marrakech I would love to stay here again & recommend it to anyone

Fantastic friendly, and very helpful staff. Great location - just a short walking distance from the exciting Souks & gorgeous alleys full of vibrant & creative shops. Gorgeous rooms full of lovely traditional features. Its very clean and tidy with the staff being very curtis and polite. It was very relaxing & has a homely feel. Will recommend to anyone that mentions visiting Marrakech. 5*+++++ Emma & Jeremy. from England.

Room Tip: Within the Hotel Carina there are two Riad locations for rooms, we stayed in the seperate 2 bedroom...
