Riad Noir d'Ivoire
Ranked #6 of 500 Hotels in Marrakech
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 December 2009

What can I say, I have stayed in a number of Riads in Marrakech but Riad Noir D'Ivoire is the absolute best! I will never stay anywhere else again on future visits to Marrakech.
The rooms and decor are immaculate, the staff is helpful, discreet and have an eye for details that I miss when staying at other hotels worldwide. It is a piece of relaxing heaven in a mad bustelling city.
Jill and Damien are a great source of knowledge when it comes to the best places to eat (although the chef in the Riad whips up a mean moroccan meal for you if you want).
Do also make use of the excellent treatments they have available, we had a massage and a hammam both of which were out of this world!

We loved it here. The location was perfect, just ten minutes walk from the souks about 15 from the square and the riad was very accessible. The staff was also friendly and efficient, everything we asked for was arranged very fast. Our room was very nice, but a bit cold at night. I would be happy to recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Marrakech.

Dear Potential Riad Noir d'Ivoire Guest,

Due to the lack of wedding related posts on Marrakech, this is an account of my experience at Riad Noir d'Ivoire. Just to fully disclose, you must book the entire Riad in order to have a wedding here, otherwise read on..

I can honestly say that all my wedding guests and I are suffering immeasurable withdrawals from the hospitality of Riad Noir d'Ivoire. When I close my eyes at work, it's the only place I want to escape to.

The moment you walk in, your enter a cocoon of serenity, elegance and luxury service and trust me, it's hard to check out of this exquisitely designed riad.

My husband and I live in NYC and had never visited Morocco. To entrust someone to help you plan and execute your wedding when you live thousands (technically 3650miles) away, is a true exercise of faith. By reading this posting and all the hundreds of wonderful reviews before mine, you should feel absolutely confident that Jill will help you orchestrate the wedding of your dreams. We had guests from the US and Europe, overflow guests to other Riads, events every night, yoga classes in the morning, spa appointments, shopping in the Medina, a group excursion to Jardin Majorelle, Chinese Tea Ceremony, Chinese Jewish wedding ceremony and *everything* was flawlessly executed. I'm not sure even now how all that happened over 3 days but it did and with everyone smiling from ear to ear. That's exactly what you want when you have guests flying in from all over the world to celebrate your special day.

Sincerely,
Christina Gerald

From the moment that Cous Cous the donkey leads you to the Riad , special is the word that comes to mind. This was a joint birthday and wedding anniversary trip that my wife had booked as a surprise for me.
The Riad itself is style and sophistication in its best form. Our "love nest" of a suite with its roof terrace and hot tub was beautiful and spacious and very private.
We not only loved the Riad but also the amazing staff, who are looked over by the ever present and super attentive owner and her loyal and helpful staff.
If you have any questions about Marrakech, where to eat, where to shop, where to experience the true Moroccan evening, the advice is always spot on.
The massage and spa treatments were perfect after our long horse ride in the Atlas Mountains (organised by hotel) and the friendly staff always seemed happy to see us return from our outings!
After a few days it was home from home.

We have no hesitation in recommending this wonderful Riad to anyone thinking of spending some quality time in a romantic and skillfully designed and decorated private hotel.

All in all we would like to thank the staff and in particular Jill for making our stay so very special.

I took my partner for a surprise to Marrakech for a long weekend. We had spent the first two nights of our trip in another fantastic Riad (just 30 metres away) but nothing prepared us for the immaculate design and detail of Riad Noir. The pictures/ website just do not do any justice to the first and lasting impressions you receive when getting a tour of the amazingly appointed Riad.

We were early checking in and our move from the first Riad was organised smoothly and our rooms were ready for us at 11am! Damien was very attentive and made us feel instantly welcome. We stayed in the Zebra Suite which has its own roof terrace and Jacuzzi every detail in the suites from the bed to the décor was exquisite- breakfast and meals were happily arranged on our terrace any time of the day. The gentle sound of cascading waterfalls and pools from our suites balcony blended seamlessly with the piano from one of the many cosy lounges and communal spaces. We were spoilt for choice in where to sit and relax with every corner offering a cosy and luxurious furnishings and for the coller evenings lovely log fires.

We wanted to stay in the Medina in the hustle and bustle of Marrakech but also wanted the luxury and service of a well appointed boutique offering relaxation and calm – we were not disappointed. Everywhere is within good walking distance and the local taxi pick up point is only a short walk away.

Jill was as helpful as she had been throughout the reservation and extended a warm welcome to us and despite a wedding taking over the whole Riad for 4 days – Jill and her staff took everything in their stride and made sure we received the same level of excellent service on which their reputation stands. Damien and Jill could not do enough to offer advice and suggestions on places to go and organise any help we needed.

The most amazing place to stay and we can not wait to return!!!

We stayed at the Riad for 4 nights as part of a family wedding celebration. Jill, the owner and tireless hostess, has built and designed a most exquisite boutique retreat that is a welcome respite from Marrakesh's intense medina. For four days and nights, Jill, Damien, the general manager, and the outstanding staff wined and dined a large group with impeccable style and great patience. No effort to make us happy and spoiled was spared, and we all felt like friends and honored guests. Jill has made use of her interior design background in every nook and corner, creating gorgeous spaces and fabulous surprises everywhere. Beautifully chosen accessories and accents and richly-appointed rooms that exude comfort and Moroccan design chic. We'll definitely be back!

Very beautiful riad, close to souks. Good service, very welcoming. Extremely clean with lovely hamman and pool. Owned and run by an English lady with French influence. Not able to get a taxi to door, but owners happy to arrange any transport required. Lovely breakfast.
