“Pure escapism...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2009

I wanted to book a weekend away with my wife without the children. We chose Marrakech as it is a truly exotic location but only 3 hours away. I booked Noir d'Ivoire as we were only away for a weekend and I thought we deserved pampering - and I was not disappointed!
We had a fabulous weekend and Noir d'Ivoire was simply perfect. The ambience was just right, tranquil yet cool, luxurious but relaxed - I'll always associate Norah Jones with this place. We had only been there a couple of hours before we were already planning our return. Jill and Damien were the most gracious hosts and always seemed to be there when we needed them - even giving us a mobile phone if we needed 'talking in' back to the Riad. We had the most wonderful weekend and can't wait to go back.

Anyone looking for a very cool, boutique oasis of calm must stay at Riad Noir d'Ivoire in Marrakech. The decor is designer chic and extremely tasteful and the hosts and all the staff are very welcoming and friendly. Gill the owner is very up to speed on whats hot or not so booked us into a great restauarant for my wife's b'day. Absolutely recommend it!

Outstanding design, food, service and owner. The owner Jill, Damian and the staff all gave the impression they had all the time in the world just for you, yet managed to run the hotel to incredibly high standards. All the staff were so gracious and accommodating. We were a bit mad going to Morocco as one of our teenagers has a potentially fatal allergy to nuts. Jill said she would sort it and she did. The rooms were cleaned and nuts removed, the restaurant staff were fully briefed and we felt and were safe in a country where nuts are a significant part of the cuisine. Jill even arranged for a good local restaurant to give us our own chef for the evening so we could try an evening of Moroccan food and entertainment. We will go back with friends and recommend it to everyone.

Me and my girlfriend are just returning from a long weekend in Marrakech. We stayed 3 nights at the beautifully decorated Riad Noir D'Ivoire and have no complaints at all.

The Riad is well located within the Medina - and although seems impossible to find at first - Hosts Jill and Damien did a great job of explaining the area etc - and after this was fairly easy to find our way. They also gave us a mobile phone with their numbers pre programmed in case we got lost or needed anything - which added to our sense of comfort.

We stayed in Guepard suite - which is one of the larger suites in the Riad and has a private roof terrace with jacuzzi. The room was perfect - very clean and comfortable. Bathroom was large with a huge bath tub / shower. The room also had a fireplace which we took advantage of since the evenings were cool.

We found the Riad to be a perfect retreat from the busy Medina area. After a long day of walking it was nice to come back to the peace and comfort of the Riad - as well as the spa treatments - we had a couples Hamman and massages another day. Would highly recommend both.

Would definitely come back - Jill and Damien added to our experience as they were extremely helpful in outlining things to do and places to see etc... as well as suggesting restaurants and also making reservations for us....

We cannot wait to come back to this beautiful riad. The welcome from Jill and Damien was second to none. They could not do more to make our stay more relaxing, enjoyable and memorable. Marrakesh can seem a bit daunting at first, especially with a pretty 15 year old daughter in tow, but they took the time and trouble to give us great directions and a mobile phone in case we got lost! The decor is truly gorgeous with great attention to detail , comfortable beds, delicious breakfast in the sun, served by the gentle and accomodating Morrocan staff, ooh just writing this makes me long to go back. Thank you Jill.

Brilliant atmosphere - private with a real personal touch! Enjoyed all the local recommendations provided by Jill & her team which made for a memorable Valentine's. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, only wish we were there longer and already planning a return visit!
