Would like to echo all the 5 star reviews below and reiterate that this is the place to stay in Marrakech. Nicolas and his staff made this place a home away from home for us. We were a bit apprehensive about going to Marrakech for the first time and being from a metropolitan city like Hong Kong, we are especially picky with hotels, but Riad Camilia exceeded our expectations in every way.
Nicolas is sensitive to every detail and fickle need that may arise during the stay - he was extremely responsive with communications throughout and looked after us so well (we told him we enjoyed the music in the lounge area and he even kindly sent us the tracks!) Another time, he escorted us to and from the riad and showed us good shops in the souks where we were able to get good bargains. He was very accommodating with arranging transfers to helping us move our luggage around and finding a tour guide. No concern was left uncared for. He knows the ins and outs of the city and recommended good restaurants to us, even though we ended up dining at the Riad both nights we were there because Fatima and her team cook so well! We had very enjoyable, traditional Moroccan meals in the relaxing dining room and even took an informal cooking class from Fatima arranged by Nicolas.
The room itself was fabulous - Nicolas opened up a small room attached to our Suite no. 6 so that our family of 3 could have more space. Breakfast downstairs in the main living room was a treat every morning. The personalized and attentive service from the staff made us feel so welcome in a foreign place like Marrakech.
We later stayed at Riad El Fenn, supposedly one of the top riads in the city, and found that we actually preferred the cosiness and friendliness of this homey Riad. Cannot recommend this place more. Keep up the great work and we miss you already!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- This is a sumptuous and authentic ryad with intact oriental and moorish atmosphere. The owners have invested time and passion to decorate this little palace of the Marrakech medina with wonderful objects and paintings found in local flea markets and antique shops around the world. The patio (courtyard) is an area of calm and relaxation where you find a small pool. There are two bedrooms on the ground floor and one bedroom and a suite overlooking the courtyard from the first floor. The master suite is absolutely gorgeous and we strongly advise you to spend a few nights there with your loved one. ... more less
