We just returned from a long weekend in Dar Zelda. We arrived in the hustle and bustle of the Medina from the taxi arranged through the Riad. Entering the Riad is like entering a another world from the medina, it's quiet and peaceful. We had a fantastic tagine that night and enjoyed a drink on the beautiful roof terrace. We had trip to the seaside which was good, but much more worth while is visiting the Atlas mountains.
We stayed in the grand suite room which was incredible. I thought it put the Bahais Palace (one of the main sites) to shame.
As with everywhere in Marrakesh, you are never far from a minaret of a mosque. So expect to hear the call to prayer at around 5.30am. This was not a big deal for us as we easily went back to sleep in our beautiful rooms.
