This was the best place I have ever stayed while traveling. It is a beautifully constructed Riad, and the staff was very helpful in getting around town and around Morocco. The manager, Said, is very knowledgeable about the culture, and makes sure that the guests are perfectly taken care of and relaxed. Overall, it was an incredible experience and I... More

A beautiful little Guest House that made us feel right at home from the moment we arrived till the moment we left.The Riad is ever so charming, beautifully decorated, stitched with little authentic decorative details, warm and welcoming. There's always a pleasant fragrance in the air and lovely music playing in the background. Every one of our demands was met,... More

Charming host Said takes care of his guests as a brother from the very moment he picks you up from the taxi until the farewell tea. He makes you feel safe and he guides you to the best places. This hidden gem in the middle of the Medina is quite hard to find, but when you enter the place this... More

The host/caretaker, Sayyid, was gracious, kind, enthusiastic, understanding and very helpful. The riad was well maintained with its traditionally crafted Moroccan design. It had a serene and comfortable feel; an elegant place to rest. There are luxurious features (hamman bath, pool, lounge) on rooftop and the ground floor to 'get away from the busy activities of the medina outside. Staying... More

Hidden behind an almost anonymous door, deep within the Medina, we had a very relaxing week at the delightfully tranquil oasis that is Dar Akal. Given that we were suffering from winter colds, the fact that there were lots of interesting places within easy walking distance was a bonus - we never felt "hurried" and could do everything at our...

Dar Akal is a fantastic Riad in a peaceful part of the Medina. The room was large and clean and the pool on the roof was perfect after a hot day walking the souks. The varied breakfasts each morning were great. Also the staff went above and beyond. Would definitely recommend.

The Riad is a sanctuary in a very hectic city, the quiet courtyard is peaceful and beautifully decorated. Upon arrival we were greeted with mint tea and biscuits. Said, the manager was extremely friendly and helpful in planning our stay. We scheduled an excursion through the Riad that was very fun and reasonably priced. Said organized everything for us and...

I've just spent 9 days at this wonderful oasis in the middle of the medina. The Riad is beautifully decorated, and the suite was such a luxury. Dar Akal is a perfect location for getting to know Marrakech and the outskirts. The assistance of the owners, and especially the manager Said, added greatly to the convenience of our stay. Day...
