“A fabulous Moroccan adventure in a stunning Riad!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2013

After extensive research my husband and I booked Riad Clementine for a 4 night break. It was our first time in Marrakech and we were looking for somewhere we could easily explore the medina from as well as enjoy some quality relaxing and peaceful time together.

Upon our arrival at the medina wall we were a little taken aback and unsure what to expect as we walked down the busy narrow streets to the Riad. (That's Marrakech!!)

We walked through the door and it took our breath away!

Everything from the decor to the smell to the ambiance of Riad Clementine was fabulous.

Angela and the team were brilliant hosts, we got a map, a whistle stop tour on the best places to go and advice on trips out if we wanted them (with no pressure to buy)

Our room (7) was the only room on the top floor and was perfect! I highly recommend booking this room as its private and has a lovely sunbathing terrace right outside the door. We enjoyed a bottle of wine and lunch up there, perfect for that alone time we were after!

The medina is a wonderful and fascinating place and Angela's advice to embrace it and get lost was spot on... And so we did!

The Riad is around a 20 minute walk from the main square. The walk is great and allows you to see and feel 'real life' - I loved it!!

Alcohol is not widely available out and about but there was always a cold beer and glass of wine available at the end of our evenings back at the Riad.

The added advantage of this Riad is the pool, this was very much welcomed to cool us down in the mid day heat!!

Believe all of the fabulous reviews about this Riad, we did and had an amazing stay!!!

*1 point to mention... The staff don't speak much English, although this didn't bother us!

For a visit to Marrakech you couldn't stay in a better riad then Clementine. We enjoyed a wonderful, spacious room (every room is different but all are beautiful and romantic), a scenic courtyard and a nice roof terrace for sunbathing and a dip in the small but heated pool. We could order a lovely bottle of rosé to be served on the terrace of this idyllic riad, a quiet oasis in the middle of a noisy film set. The french owners and their staff provided us with everything, were very helpful and kept our room impeccable. We promised them to return soon, and to bring friends!

My boyfriend and I were traveling in Morocco and decided to treat ourselves to a couple of nights in this beautiful riad. We were stunned - not only is the riad beautiful, but the hosts are lovely, the food is delicious, the riad is conveniently located to the Medina, and it was in our budget!
Our hosts were delightful - offering tips on where to visit, what to do, and even what to expect to pay in a taxi ;) In addition, I have food allergies and was concerned that I would have to avoid all Moroccan cuisine. Not so! They were so thoughtful in their food preparations, and I enjoyed many a delicious tajine at the riad, worry-free. Our room was lovely and romantic (we were on the pool-level), and to top it all of, we got engaged in the riad's stunning courtyard. A perfect stay!

Had a wonderful stay at this Riad. So peaceful and the staff so attentive. After busy streets returning to the lovely courtyard, sunbathing and a dip in the pool made it a perfect spot for our trip. The food was also really good breakfast in the courtyard or the evening meals. The attention to detail in the bedrooms and the whole building was wonderful.

We chose the Riad Clementine for our recent first visit to Marrakech after reading the excellent reviews on TripAdvisor, and it was every bit as special as we`d hoped. Angela and Antoine were charming and helpful hosts, and all the staff were delightful. We particularly loved the courtyard garden with its flowering citrus trees and central fountain - magical by candlelight by night, also the roaring log fires in the sitting and dining rooms which added to the warm ambience, and the superb decor and attention to detail throughout the Riad.
We chose Room 3 as it suited our budget and found it charming, comfortable, and ideally located near the swimming pool - what more could we want? Breakfasts were perfect - typically fresh orange juice, fruit, yogurt, eggs cooked to order, pancakes etc and we had dinner in the Riad 3 out of our 4 nights because the food and wine were so delicious.
Have to admit we did find walking around the medina challenging at times - we actually much preferred Essaouira with its quieter, laid back atmosphere - but our stay at the Riad Clementine was absolutely perfect and if we return to Marrakech we would love to stay there again.

We absolutely loved this riad and the owners were delightful. It is everything you want a Marrakech riad to be. The decorations are beautiful and the food was the best ( and most varied) that we had in morocco!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Riad History The house was built in the eighteenth century, in 1880, a hundred meters inside the ocher walls of the twelfth century, in the famous and lively Bab Doukkala. The house has always been inhabited by the family El Belaidi, which gave it the name of Riad El Belaidi. Acquired in 1999, the building was restored in the traditional Moroccan architecture, with the standards of modern hospitality. To preserve the original architecture, including the large traditional patio with glowing light, the pool was built in the 1st floor terrace. This rare choice proved to be extremely wise because the pool today enjoys the utmost privacy; the patio is a place to be. ... more   less
