After reading the great reviews on Tripadvisor and e-mailing back and forward with Nicolas numerous times I booked us into the Riad Camilia for a total of three nights, two before a trip to the desert and one upon our return. To reach the Riad Nicolas meets you at your car and then takes you for a short walk ending at a small alley where you enter the Riad through a little green door and once there you will not be disappointed. The Riad is tastefully decorated everywhere you look and the quiet inside is such a contrast to the noise and bustle outside. I can not say enough about the wonderful staff who were always there with a friendly smile and an eagerness to make your stay comfortable. However Nicolas must take most of the praise. He goes beyond all expectations to ensure that your stay is unforgetable and he seems to work 7 x 24, nothing ever seeming to be too much to ask.
The first two nights we stayed in Room 3 on the first floor and enjoyed the spaciousness of the room and large shower. The last night we stayed in room 5 which is unbelievable. Beautifully decorated, it also has a private stairway up to the roof top.
Once on the rooftop there are many places to relax and also a small dipping pool. We enjoyed our evenings up here drinking wine, having dinner and listening to the calls to prayer that would ring out around the city.
For me Riad Camilia made staying in Marrakech a fantastic experience and would be a great place to go to simply get away and relax. This is a first class establishment and I highly recommend it to anyone.
