We have just arrived home from a 2 night stay at Riad Noir D 'Ivoire followed by a 1 night stay at Maison Arabe and therefore are in a perfect position to compare the properties.
While both surroundings are beautiful, Riad Noir D'Ivoire is in a league of it's own. A driver was waiting for us at the airport and then Cous Cous the donkey and a charming Riad member if staff escorted us the short way to the Riad. The moment we arrived we were greeted with exceptional warmth and hospitality, immediately serving us with drinks and catering to our every need. Restaurant reservations were made for us as required,a guide was sent with us to initially help us to negotiate the streets maps were drawn and recommendations given . We were even given a pre- programmed mobile in case we needed to contact them at any time.Nothing was too much trouble.
While the Riad was full, we barely saw other guests, there were so many different areas to spend time in. The best way that I can describe it is that it is like living in your own luxury mansion with staff discretely at your beck and call. No-one asks which room you are staying in when you order anything,everyone is so well trained they just 'know'.
Our last night was in Maison Arabe which is a nice luxury hotel, but it doesn't have that personal touch and special something that Riad Noir D'Ivoire has.
If you are looking for a special getaway for a memorable trip to Marrakech, this is the only place to stay.
