I have just returned from staying at Dar Ilham with my wife. The trip was a surprise gift for her 30th birthday. She had been to Marrakech last year and loved it, although she stayed in central Marrakech. This time I wanted somewhere with a pool that wasn't too busy, and after reading all the different reviews decided on Dar Ilham. Most of the places in Marrakech itself had no pool or looked far too busy, so this looked perfect.
When arrived we were the only couple there, only to joined by another couple the following day. After emailing the hotel our flight details the driver was waiting for us on our arrival, which was very comforting, so we didn't have to negotiate with taxi drivers.
On arrival we greeted warmly and asked what time we would like dinner. The food was great, we ate their 3 evenings, and had lunch salads most afternoons. Although this wasn't included it was very reasonable for the quantity and quality. The evening meals were always traditional Moroccan. Breakfast was included and was extremely filling.
The whole team at the Dar Ilham were so friendly and helpful. Whilst we were there we went on one of the day trips, used the spa treatments and went into Marrakech several times. On one occasion the driver took us around several monuments for the day and waited for us. When we wanted to check out a couple of the bars in town they were happy to phone in advance for us. The main city center was around 20 minutes away which was not an issue, as it was nice to retreat to the calmness of the Kasbah after all the hustle and bustle of the city centre. I can't think of a bad word to say, considering it was towards the end of Ramadan the whole team made it the perfect get away.
Can't wait to return, with some friends of family!
