“A Gem at the end of the Street”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

Unable to book 4 nights at Dar Chakria just along the alleyway we were recommended to book into this riad by Dar Chakria's owners and we were delighted by the whole experience. Arriving late in the evening and with the taxi unable to take us all the way to the front door we were ' escorted'! on the final part by two local boys who whisked our suitcases away from us and proceeded to speed us through the twisting dark alleyways to DR's front door. This was quite an unnerving experience and we wondered what we had let ourselves in for given the condition of the outside walls and narrowness and darkness of the street but we had nothing to worry about. One tip: as a westerner you are viewed as a walking cash machine and these two lads tried to scam us for a 100dirahms for pulling our cases about 500yds. We didn't pay and neither should you. We paid 40 dirhams but suspect that they would have been happy with 20. One we stepped inside the riad it was like entering a different world. The phrase oasis of clam is overused but it really was. All the staff were very welcoming and the setting was an absolute delight. Whilst the room was only of average size it was all that we needed, clean and well presented and with aircon. The scattered rose petals were a nice additional touch. We ate in on the first night and we would recommend this especially if you are arriving in the darlk and its's your first time in Marrakech.The cooking was superb and we had a very enjoyable meal even though we were the only guests eating . Breakfast on both mornings was once again very good and set us up well for the days ahead. The staff were all extremely friendly, attentive and polite, obviously proud of the riad and determined to look after us as well as they could.Given its location we suspect that this riad does not get the custom it deserves but it really should, given that the cost of staying there is extremely reasonable and anyone, especially if on a tighter budget, would be getting very good value for money and a lovely experience.

A must for any time we return to Morocco. Jamila and her staff know how to look after visitors and facilitate a sense of adventure while providing the comforts of home. Food delightful, bedrooms so comfortable and converstaion relaxed and informal.
Wish we'd known about it when we still had the kids with us

our first time in Marrakech and this was a beautifully maintained riad, that covered every aspect that was desired. Jamilla ans the staff continually strive to ensure a peaceful and releaxing stay and are on hand to assist with your every need. The food and meals cooked are second to none and highly recomended - its like hiring your own personal restaurant for the evening. It is very hot during july and august, the rooms are air conditioned which is a necessity if you go at this time.

My four children and younger sister loved the Riad. Jamila made it like home for us. She cooked great food and made us feel welcome throughout out stay. My son who is aged 9 loved the splashpool and Jamila was kind to me and family throughout. I loved the decor, ambience and hospitality of the Riad. I would definitely go back!!

First time in Marakech and staying here made it feel like home. The housekeeper, jamila is very friendly, helpful and is a very very amazing cook! If you stay here you must taste her cooking! Loved Staying here! It has a homely feel and the fact that we was the only ones staying here made it that extra special. Would definitely come back here.

Words cannot describe the haven that was hidden away within the little ally's and behind the door of this Riad in the heart of Marrakech.

Jamila & Jalil where so fantastic, with every single little detail seen to, they really do know how to look after you in this wonderful Riad. Even the lady that cleans the room had ensured her little touch was the personal touch and done so from the heart.

From the time you step into your little moroccan escape to the time you leave, its truly an experience you will never ever forget. My family and I will always remember this holiday as one of our best.

A must for anyone of any age. Thank you to Helen & Ian for your patience throughout the booking. Perfect customer service.

Will definitely visit again.

We stayed for three nights in the Berber room which was beautiful - fresh roses in a vase and rose petals adoring the bed when we arrived. Jamilla and her team run an excellent riad - the home cooked food was delicious. Nothing is too much trouble - Jamilla booked a restaurant for us on the first night and Jalil walked us to it so that we didn't get lost amongst the souks! They arranged a trip to Essouria for us - a beautiful coastal town and a real contrast to Marrakech. We would definately recommend staying here.
