Anas is an extraordinary host/manager - he really does his best to make your stay nice. He provided a lot of hits about places worth visiting (restaurants etc.) and everything what I visited out of his list was worth of it. The place it self is very quite and helps you to get some relax after a day spent outside.
During my stay in Feb 2020 there were two things I did not like (both related to the fact, that property was in an unannounced "low-season mode"): - the internal garden area was covered at the roof level with semitransparent plastic foil. Supposedly it was a against rain in winter season. This protection was not removed despite the lack of rain many days before and later (in forecasts). It really ruined the atmosphere in the internal part. (however I must admit, that this is a solution applied by many other riads as well, but not all of them) - when I came to the property, there were two plumbers working on fixing pool drain in the central part. The pool was without water and in the corner of the garden was a mess. I would understand that if that was an emergency repair, but this work was planed ahead, because of mentioned "low-season". However I was not warned about this construction/repair work. The repair and the surrounding were fixed next morning.
I'm not sure how many ways I can espouse the beauty of this Riad. Let's start by saying Anas is a brick. He always seemed to be around, always willing to help, and most importantly always with a smile and good humor. In hindsight, I think we'd have been lost without is help. The basics: The Riad is beautiful. The rooms (that we saw) are lovely. Judging by how ours was, the photos of the other rooms will not lie. The central garden is peaceful and a wonderful place to have a cup of fresh mint tea. Breakfast was simple and varied, always served with a smile. The day we left for simplicity we had lunch at the Riad and my goodness, we were full! In other words, food and hospitality was top notch. The entrance to the Riad is a bit daunting. It's down a small passage, that gets smaller, narrower and darker the further you go. The door at the end is not obvious when you start, so it can be a bit concerning. However, once the door opens you understand the whole concept of keeping the outside out, and the inside in. The Riad is apparently four buildings joined together over time to make what is at first a bit of a maze, but after a little while you realize it's not so complex after all, and you find your way around, although I did turn around quite a bit. The rooftop deck is expansive, lots of nooks and crannies if you want to hide away and read. We were able to drink a bottle of wine and it came with some condiments, which was wonderful after a day of walking the old city. It was lovely to relax and enjoy the January sun in the late afternoon. My opinion has always been "people make the place" and it's true here. The staff were lovely, always helpful, always smiling. We absolutely fell in love with the old city of Marrakesh and will be going back. Our first port of call will be Riad Camilia. All in all, with all the traveling I've done over the years, I cannot recommend this place more highly.
My wife felt the bed was uncomfortable, however I felt it was fine. We slept until 8:30am so it couldn't have been too bad! The water pressure in our shower was not great, but we failed to mention this until the last day and Anas was going to look into it. It's possible this was an anomaly.
The staff at this venue go the extra mile to ensure you have a great stay. The place is beautiful inside and although it is in the Medina it is peaceful.
Great team. Anas is the perfect manager
Wear a jersey!
We have stayed several Riads during our two weeks trip in Morocco and Camilla is no doubt the best!!! The hostess and her husband are very helpful and considerate, and they met all needs we wanted. The Riad itself is a palace / museum with so much to see. All details, eg lamps, candle holder, cushion etc could tell the great taste of the owner. Highly recommend.
