“Second time round and still as wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2012

This was our 2nd visit to Dar Ilham because our first was so fabulous ! our son (who is 11) was determined we had to go back. My elderly parents came this time around too and they were looked after so well by Ali and his amazing team of people. I honestly speak highly enough about this place - truly beautiful ! As my last review says, they are a bit further out than they state and you do wonder where on earth you are going !? but it is well worth the journey and the wait ! Absolute heaven on earth !
I cannot rate the spa as I never used it ! but the pool was as clear as could be and the hot tub is very relaxing.

Then we had our second stay at Riad Dar Ilham, and it is just as overwhelming and amazing as the first time. Stay in this hotel made Marrakech more and more spectacular, what to say? The decoration, the service, the food Oh my god!!! If I could I would go there every 3 months, it's a wonderful place to stay. My husband was amazed by this incredible riad ( that I choose myself by searching at "tripadvisor") and seriously the reviews were helpful and true. I highly recommend this amazing palace (for me) if you want to go for a trip to Morocco - Marrakech

Room Tip: I recommend the room with the pool view it's just amazing!!!!

We celebrated our wedding at the Riad Dar Ilham and we could not have wished for a better location. The Riad and Kasbah have the perfect Moroccan charm with great quality accomdation and service. The staff are wonderful and be it for a weekend or a special celebration, they will make your stay a memorable one. We will definitely be going back!

We stayed at Kasbah Dar Ilham Hotel for 4 days. it is very nice, friendly staff. The rooms were comfortable and nicely decorated.
Conclusion: TOTALLY AMAZING. Truth be known, i was going to stay at either the Sheraton BUT a good friend of mine told me you MUST stay in Kasbah Dar Ilham Hotel.
THANK GOD i did! Kasbah Dar Ilham Hotel was more luxurious, friendly and serene than any other hotel i could have stayed at.

Room Tip: In fact, a good place

The riad grounds are lovely (the pool & loungers look out of an ad) and have a very accommodating staff & yummy breakfast. However, it is truly a good 10-15 minute ride from town, in the middle of NOWHERE (literally down a dirt road with feral dogs jumping up to chase any vehicle that passes). Also, as we were 3 people, we had booked a junior suite but when we arrived we were given a regular room (as far as we could tell) with pullout bed for the 3rd guest. The room itself was very nice, with a great balcony overlooking the pool, and the bed itself was super comfy & the bathtub was nice & big and deep.

Hello,

First of all, we would like to thank you for your comment. Our guests’ opinions are really very important for us to move forward.
We are also very pleased to learn that you liked the food in Riad Dar Ilham; we assure you that our chefs try to offer an exceptional range of the highest quality gourmet dishes with a very adequate value. In your comment you mentioned “Literally down a dirt road with feral dogs jumping up to chase any vehicle that passes” I think that’s not our fault if you found some dogs outside jumping up, it’s not riad’s dog.

Secondly, our reservation team send you an email with all the information with the link to see the room before you book it, as you request a room with three beds, and we have informed you in the email, that we have no room with three separate beds, so we prepared a sofa bed in the junior suite for the 3rd person with free charge exceptionally for you, normally in this case, the client must book the luxury suite which consists of a large bed with a living room to put extra beds.

Ultimately, we assure you that we have always been attentive to every guest’s request and every wish, and we always do the maximum to make our guests stay as pleasant as possible. This has always been our policy.

Best regards

A wonderful place to visit. Although on the outskirts of Marrakesh they offer a free shuttle service for day trips and reasonable taxi fares (with collection) in the evening. The fact it is outside the City is a blessing as it is so peaceful.
