“Magical Retreat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 October 2010

Located in a wonderful neighbourhood in the heart of the Marrakech Medina, walking through the narrow alleyways towards Riad Noir D'Ivoire you will feel instantly calm as soon as you enter this stunning riad. Jill and Damien are charming hosts and make you feel completely at home with the warmest welcome and attention to detail. The suites are exquistely decorated, with luxury products and beautiful touches everywhere you look. The menu offers a choice of delicious meals and the breakfasts are absolutely delicious!! The courtyard, plunge pools and rooftop terrace offer an oasis of calm from the hive of activity in the medina. The service was impeccable and this was by far our favourite riad! We really can't wait to return.
Thanks again to Jill and Damien and their wonderful team.

My husband and I decided to treat ourselves on our wedding anniversary and what a treat it was. The personal service we received from Noir D’Ivoire was such a treat down to personalised itinerary for trips to recommended restaurants and rose petals strewn in our room and a glass of champagne on our anniversary – everything was arranged with ease and nothing was ever a problem.

Due to the hotel décor and atmosphere the riad was a pleasure to spend time in and we found an excuse to just chill round the pool rather than going out. The food was excellent and the bar extemeley well stocked.

A must to arrange a return trip.

If you want an oasis of calm in the midst of the madness and wonder of Marrakech this is most certainly the place. Located in a non touristy part of the medina ,in the midst of ages old narrow walled pathways is Riad Noir D'Ivoire. Behind the beautiful wooden door is another world where the warmest welcome is offered by Jill and Damien in this most tasteful and exquisitely furnished riad. Their help and recommendations are invaluable and Jill will offer her team of "men in black" to accompany you anywhere until you are orientated in the maze that is the medina.
This is an exceptional property immaculately run.

Totally pampered from the time Cous Cous arrived to take our cases until the moment we left. Jill and Damien are what hospitality is all about. They couldn't have been more welcoming, helpful and knowledgeable. The Riad itself it stunning, with wonderful touches everywhere. One of the best experiences we have had anywhere in the world. Thank you -we will be back.

No 1 out of 395 hotels in Marrakech! Well - there is a reason. Outside the souk, inside calm & luxury. A combination of Moorish & Modernist architecture and decor set around two courtyards and plunge pools. Each room is totally individual. Beautiful - the decor is exceptional. The service from Jill & Damien is enthusiastic and beyond expectation. Breakfast around the pool is perfect.

Perhaps the Noir d'Ivoire is almost too perfect. I just thought that the sight of my less than toned 63 year old body descending into the plunge pool would utterly destroy the ambience that Jill has created! So I held back. But I won't be able to resist next time!! I am recommending the Noir d'Ivoire - and Marrakech - to everyone.

And the ultimate compliment. It is even worth suffering the four hour flight with Ryannair to get here.

From the moment we walked through the arrivals hall in Marrakech to the minute they dropped us back a week later we were looked after beautifully by Jill, Damien and the team. They went to great efforts at all times to ensure we were not only having a great time but that we were getting the most out of Marrakech and it's surroundings.
The rooms are lovely (we were travelling with friends so saw a few of them) and the attention to detail makes the place very special.
The service is just right - attentive but without being in your face. The entire staff were friendly and helpful, and the hotel has an extremely relaxed feel to it.
We will be back, that is for sure - thanks Jill and the gang!
