A group of us booked it out for a week and had a fantastic time. Khadeesha the housekeeper was amazing, she cooks if you want and keeps everything spotless. The villa is quite remote so you will need a car if you want to get around easily. An absolutely stunning week away.

I have just returned from a very pleasant weeks holiday at the Villa Darko with friends. This is the first review I have ever written on Trip Advisor and the main reason for this is the hostess with the mostest, Khadija. Khadija influenced our trip from the moment we landed in Marrakech. Due to a last minute confusion over car... More

Stayed at Villa Darko with 10 friends in late Sept/early Oct 2014. When we turned up the answer was clearly nothing, the villa was immaculate, large clean bedrooms, 5 en suites (1 shared) and plenty of inside and outside space for probably up to 14 people. The grounds in which it sat were very well maintained and Khadija looked after... More

The housekeeper Khadisha is to thank for that! Clean, homely, GREAT local food, big spaces with different chill-out areas on the property in a quite area... More

We rented the Villa for 10 friends for a 30th birthday for 6days. The villa was beautiful, the pictures don't do it justice. Located in the quite countryside a short drive from the ocean and town. The most peaceful place I have ever been to! We decided to go with the maid for the week and that was probably the... More

We decided on Morocco for a family celebration because of the weather at Easter and the fact that none of us had really been before, and Villa Darko because of its size, and the pool. It turned out to be the perfect choice, with plenty of rooms and space for a big family both to eat and spend time together... More

It was natural and a Nice place to go to after a visit in à busy town. We like THE Maroc people even more. Family... More

We had a beautiful stay in the villa. Every day good breakfast, clean rooms and beds. Khadisja, the woman that cooked for us and cleaned house and rooms was very very kind. We will miss her and her lovely moroccon diners. She was very willing to help and to tell about local customs and give us directions to nice places.... More
