From the moment we arrived at Dar Roumana, I knew we'd made the right decision! We walked through a rather ordinary door to find the most extraordinary Dar, restored beautifully throughout and every bit the Moroccan dream I'd hoped for. Our ground floor room was vast, beautifully decorated, super clean and luxurious. I was completely blown away and then we made it up to the rooftop - the view left me speechless! It must be the best view in Fez!
The service, wifi, breakfasts and atmosphere was the best we had in Morocco, if not our entire 3 month trip through India, Turkey and Morocco. That is quite something!
What made our stay most memorable though were the hosts Vanessa and Vincent. They are warm, welcoming and go beyond what is expected of any hosts. Vanessa taught us so much about the region and recommended countless experiences, restaurants and places of interest that we would never have discovered without her. So not only was our stay in Dar Roumana fabulous, but every time we stepped out to discover the area, our experience was beyond what the normal 'traveler' might have seen. For that we were incredibly grateful!
I'm honestly counting down the days until we get back, as Dar Roumana feels like a 'home' in Fez that I will continue to revisit.
Thank you to Vanessa, Vincent and all the staff for making our stay so exceptional!!
P.s. You absolutely MUST eat at Dar Roumana one evening... You could serve Vincent's food anywhere in the world and be in awe of how creative, fresh and delicious it is. By far the best meal of our trip!! The secret seems to be out though so make sure you book in advance :-)
