After spending time in the Atlas Mountains and Sahara Desert we came to Dar Akal hoping for comfort and calm. We were not disappointed. We were warmly welcomed by Said and had some Moroccan mint tea while he used maps to orientate us and give us some information about Marrakech. Throughout our stay Said could not have been more pleasant,... More

We booked through the Dar Akal website because they offered a taxi and collection service as we were arriving to Marrakech late evening. They were very efficient, had a taxidriver at the exit point in airport and collected us for the short walk from taxi to hotel. They provided a late meal on arrival with wine. The staff and manager... More

We had a great time at Dar Akal and Said was a wonderful host who's clear explanation of how to get around the souks was invaluable. Our room, Douiria was brilliant and the rooftop terrace was a great place to relax after a day in busy Marrakech. Than you very much Said and team - we really felt well looked... More

Look no further. We LOVED our stay at the Dar Akal. The riad was beautiful and well situated in the medina. The rooms were "Moroccan Elegant" and the breakfasts (and dinners upon request) were wonderful -- beautifully served and delicious. Saiid, the hotel manager, did everything possible to make our stay enjoyable and hassle free. He is a treasure. The... More

The manager Said is very helpful and made our stay a wonderful experience! He even organized a rental car for us to travel around. Said cares about every little detail. The kitchen is fantastic too. You can eat inside the yard or on the terrace if the weather is nice.

The hotel is beautiful and offers a unique atmosphere. But what made a real difference was Said, who looked afters - or rather spoiled us during our stay! Excellent breakfast, Marrocan tea, little roof swimming pool, dinner on the roof terrace - would love to go back already.

My wife had stayed here with her mother before last Christmas and was so well looked after that she had to bring me! It was absolutely delightful. A beautiful building, attractively furnished rooms, pleasant public spaces in which to have delicious food, breakfast and dinner. Said, the manager, could not have been more helpful, making our stay even more agreeable.

Dar Akal is simply beautiful. It is very well hidden in the Medina and one would never find the way without guidance. But Said really is the best in explaining how to get to places without getting lost and you can see that he has drawn quite a few maps with landmarks :) Said also organized everything else very well,...
