“A fabulous oasis of tranquillity”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2013

We visited Riad Camilia in mid April and had an amazing time.

The room was just stunning (as is the whole Riad) we had room 3. Very comfortable and well appointed. Breakfast on the roof was a real treat and Nicolas always takes the time to check you are okay and slept well. He is very handy for ideas for the day. We organised to have a meal in to Riad on the first night as our plane landed at 8pm. We went to bed full and very satisfied.

The Riad is located in an ideal spot to explore and it is easy to find your way around the souks. La Foundouk is only a 2 min walk round the corner and the great for a meal on the roof, also the House of photography is good for lunch (again on the roof).

This Riad is the complete experience, great surrounding, great host and great staff.

Water, mint tea and coffees are complimentary. Top tip. Have a mint tea with your toes in the courtyard plunge pool.

Thank you so much for making our first stay in Marrakech so wonderful.

On my 5th trip to Marrakech I found Riad Camilia, it is by far the most wonderful place I have stayed in. The Riad is beautiful throughout, tasteful and captures the essence of Morocco, luxurious and felt like home.

We met Camilia the owner she is gracious and welcoming, the Riad is run by Nicolas, with his help our stay ran like clockwork, nothing was too difficult to arrange, I discovered many new wonderful places through his suggestions.

The family of staff made us so comfortable, wonderful breakfasts and dinners, they catered for our every need.

A magical 9 days, unforgettable!

We recently spent two nights (should have been three but for a missed airline connection) here at the beginning of our around the world trip. Can not say enough how peaceful and comfortable the setting is in this riad. Beautiful rooms and excellent food are among some of the highlights. Enjoying breakfast on the roof-top terrace is such a great way to start the day. We completed our stay with dinner in the restaurant. The food was very, very good. Simple flavorful mezzas and tagines.

We can not say enough about the service provided by the staff and Nicholas in particular. No idea when he sleeps as he always seemed to be available. He knows the area like the back of his hand and serves as an extremely gracious and helpful host.

And as a final note. This is very convienently located, maybe 5 minute walk, to the souk and night market. But the riad itself is in a very quiet area

Riad camilia was chosen primilary based on the strong reviews of fellow travellers on trip advisor and it did not disappoint.

In my mind this is for two principle reasons : 1) the love and care that has been put into the design and lush furnishings of the riad and 2) Nicholas and his staff and the absolutel dedication and commitment that they provide to all guests. You absolutely feel as though you are a guest in a private home. I know that many of the other guests Felt similarly.

Upon entering the riad you are immediately taken with its charming and calming furnishings and layout. It really is stunning. All the rooms look gorgeous so don't worry about which one to choose.

Also the food is increible! Fatima is a fantastic cook and she let us go to the market with her and even show us how to cook a range of moroccan salads as we are vegetarian.

I really can't speak highly enough of both of the above (and Im not that easily pleased). Do not bother to research any other raids in the medina because this is what you are looking for!

Nicholas, Fatima and the rest of the charming staff - thank you! Sarah and Ryan

We just had four days at Riad Camilla and it was one of the most enjoyable stays I've had anywhere. Nicolas had an excellent knowledge of the area and helped us with restaurants, markets, etc. Great host, great staff and amazing food. Thank you!

Riad Camilia is the most beautiful house I have visited. I spent 2 nights at the riad. The people I met working there were nice and helpful. The hamman and massage was lovely. Breakfast and lunch was tasty. Even the beds had special made mattresses and I slept like a baby. Thank you.

Having just returned from a 5 day break at the Riad Camilia, I can not endorse enough the service delivered by Nicolas and his staff. Evening meals at the riad are authentic Morrocan cuisine, nothing is too much trouble and you can eat whatever you want.
We stayed in room 5 which was massive, and spotless.
I also recommend a tour with Mohammed.
Many thanks for a great break
