This riad is beautiful and even better than the photos we saw.We went to Marrakech for the first time and wasn't sure what to book. I looked at hotels and in the end decided to book this riad because we wanted to experience real Moroccan life. The moment we step in the riad it felt like home. The owners are... More

Beautiful Riad in the Jewish quarter in Marrakech and fabulous, heart-felt service. The owners welcomed us on the first night with delicious tea and sweets and the staff spoiled us with amazing food during our 4-day stay. Furthermore, the Riad organized our breathtaking overnight-trip to the Agafay Desert - excellent tour guides, too! We are so glad to have met... More

Choosing the right Riad in Marrakech can be difficult and time consuming. Based on the reviews, pictures and availability I was very lucky to pick Dar Alif. Spent five days over christmas there and it felt like home. From arrival to departure the service, atmosphere and attention I got from staff the owners could have not been better. Phillip warmly...

From the very beginning we were looked after well. We decided to have the £15 transfer to and from hotel due to convenience. It took us nearly 2 hrs to get out due to customs yet the driver still waited on. Impressive! We got welcomed into the hotel by Phillipe with a lovely cup of moroccan tea with nice delicacies....

If I ever come back to Marrakech, it will be because of this accommodation. Book it and look no further! Location - very convenient, right next to the Palace and 10 min walk from the Square (where all the action takes place). It is a bit hard to find for the first time, so I would recommend booking a pick-up... More

We could not dream of a nicer and more welcoming and friendly place to stay in Marrakech. The owners, Philippe and Isabell were very kind and helped us to organize our short stay to get the best out of it! Youssef have great local knowledge and was full of precious advises of what to get, where and how to buy.... More

Let me start by saying that I spent HOURS and HOURS looking for a riad.... Finally I booked somewhere and at the very last minute we got sent here as a 'surprise' (the riad I had originally booked was full). Well, what a GREAT SURPRISE this was! The best, in fact. Philipe, Isabelle and Yousef have only been running this... More

We have just spent 5 days in Marrakesh, staying at Dar Alif. The owners were such lovely, friendly, caring people and nothing was too much trouble for them... even though our French was not very good, they did everything they could to help us book trips and show us the best places to visit/eat/try. We could not have been happier... More
