“An exotic and peaceful haven in the magical chaos of central Marrakech”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013 via mobile

This riad offers stunning rooms: beautiful traditional decor and a cool rooftop where storks clack and jasmine intoxicates. I recommend Mariyas one day
traditional cookery class. Thanks also to Said for hospitality and Jusef for running us about. A gem and an oasis

As with all family Riad's in Morocco, this one is down a small side street, however the location is excellent for all the sites, but still being just far enough away from the hectic markets and street sellers. It is also good as you can take advantage of their sister Riad which allows you to use their roof top swimming pool (nice when it gets too hot!).

This little Riad was located in the heart of the Medina. About a 15 minute walk to the main square. We got to know the staff well, especially Said and Maryam who were very polite and welcoming. The room was lovely and the shower gel and shampoo provided were excellent.
It was sometimes hard to believe you were in Marrakech as it was so calm and quite. Quite a relief sometimes from the hustle and bustle of the square.
We always looked forward to breakfast and never left feeling hungry. A selection of jams with bread, pancakes, yogurt, pastries, coffee and freshly squeezed orange juice.
You also have use of two other Riads owned by the same company. One has a plunge pool you can use and another with a swimming pool. All within easy walking distance.
In short I am very glad we stayed here. I would defiantly return if I ever visited again.
Highly recommended.

A peaceful and refreshing Raid in the heart of Marrakech. The staff are extremely polite and will go out of there way to help you with anything to make your stay more enjoyable. Said and Maryam made the 8 days perfect. The main door to the Raid is locked at all times meaning locals can not walk in (many reviews have mentioned that there are no locks to the room). Therefore, the Raid feels extremely secure and homely. The rooms are very clean and perfect to relax in after a hectic day walking around Marrakech. You can not fault this place. Prefect distance to all the souks and the main square. Thank you Said and Maryam for a lovely experience.

Yes, a nice surprise in the hustle and chaotic Marrakech! It was a refreshing experience from the clacking storks on the terrance, excellent room, with a kind and attentive staff. The mint tea and cookies were a delightful welcome to Riad Carina. The arranged cooking class in the Raid was very informative,fun, and delicious! The airport arrangements went smoothly and happy we did set these up. Location was excellent with a nice stroll to the souks. Very happy we stayed at the Riad Carina for a week. The Carina staff made arrangements for the walking city tour, ham man and massage,cooking class as well as the trip out to the Atlas Mountains......an excellent staff to make their guest exceed their expectations of the Marrakech Experience!

Room Tip: We were 3 adults.....2 sisters and one nephew(age30). We were on the 2nd floor(they called it 1st) b...

It was wonderful here. The central courtyard and terrace is really peaceful (you can hear birds including the 'clacking' storks!). We had lovely mint tea when we arrived, (harrassed by 'helpful' locals!) in the hot afternoon - best drink I've ever had. Location was excellent - walkable distance to the souks, main square, and museums. The room was lovely - ours had a 'living area' with sofas etc and then a lovely comfy bed with air conditioning. The staff were very helpful. Would definitely stay here again - so glad I booked this riad (through Lastminute.com) - and chose based on trip advisor reviews.

What can I say about Riad Carina? Everything from the room, to the terrace, service and mint tea:-) was exceptional!!... The service here is a brilliant example of 'service with a smile' No matter how many times I asked questions and the many times I asked for mint tea...everything was delivered promptly and with a smile....The hotel was a calm haven away from the heat and the noise outside. Loved my stay here and would be happy to recommend it to anyone planning a visit to Marrakesh. The location of this hotel is also fantastic...
