We got married at Dar Ilham, with our guests coming in from 4 continents (Asia, America, Australia, and Europe) and everybody unanimously agreed that Dar Ilham was a gem of a find, with excellent service from Alain, the owner, Asmah, the manager, and their team of friendly and helpful staff.
We picked Dar Ilham as our wedding site because we had visited before, and stayed once, and we felt it would be a great place for guests which ranged widely in ages (6 months to 70 years old) and interests. They exceeded our expectations - they helped us find a babysitter for our guests with young kids, they were responsive to our guests varying needs like meals, car transfers, spa requests, and late night drinks request in the lounge. Specifically for the wedding, they were tremendously helpful in a lot of logsitics that we could not handle because we were not in Morocco, eg finding the type of musicians that we liked even though it was new to them (we gave them the name of the restaurant where we had heard the music and they followed up and hired the musicians for us), and ensuring the event ran smoothly. It was important to us that the food was excellent, and they delivered on that as well - different guests have told us that they had their favorite beef or chicken tagine in Morocco at our wedding. They also do a mean chicken pastilla, tabouli salad, and beef keftas. Not to be discounted is the trustworthiness of the staff - our room was in the 4-room riad, which have no door locks, and we left our room unlocked for our entire stay without any incident. Last but not least, they also have excellent local contacts that helped us with organizing events outside of Dar Ilham, eg they managed to get us reservations at a popular restaurant in Guéliz (new town) when we couldn't get in touch, and they had an excellent transport agency that handled our very complicated transport needs because we had guests staying in various riads in the medina as well as at Dar Ilham.
