“Medina Oasis”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

Riad Dar-K was an amazing experience that was the highlight of our trip to Morocco. The Riad is in the heart of the Medina yet it is peaceful once you set foot inside. It is a short and easy walk to the main square and right adjacent to Ben Youssef Madrasa. We were shown our way to the main square by Sarah who is the owner of the Riad. She gave us lots of good hits on how not to get lost. At first we felt we would not find out way back but Sarah's hints were precisely what we need any time we felt we were going off track. After the first trip to the square we felt like we knew the route like the back of our hands.

The highlight of the Riad has to be its employees. Everyone took great care of us and showed genuine care towards our happiness. We spent late night talking to many of the employees about travel and life.

The architecture of the Riad is stunning. The rooms were extremely clean and conferrable. Our only regret is that we only spent one night here. It was by far the best Riad we stayed at in morocco over our 5 days traveling through morocco.

Best mint tea I had anywhere in morocco.

We were recommended to go to this Riad and it was everything we hoped it would be. Close to the bustling Medina, but so quiet as soon as you close the door. You felt very safe within the walls of the Riad which was very stylish with its simplicity decor. The rooms were very nice, newly renovated with stylish features. We stayed in a first floor room, large in size and it had everything we needed. Hairdryer in room, safe deposit (even though it wasn't screwed down to anything) towels changed daily and beds made.
You must have dinner at least one night in the Riad. The fire was set, rose petals around the table, a very romantic experience and the entire lounge area to ourselves. We controlled the fire and chilled out on the cushions in the corner whilst listening to the music. You can control the Bose docking station with an iPod already in place to set the local ambient of your choice. Lovely 3 course dinner and wine made by the in-house chef. 18 euros each plus 10 euro for a bottle of Red.
Jeep trip to the Atlas Mountains was very enjoyable through the rough terrain of the hills. Lunch at the top and a smoother drive home cost 150 Euro for 2 or if you share a trip with another couple like we did, it will cost 100 euro per couple for a full days tour. We got to experience a Moroccan house in the mountain including the toilet!!!!!! An experience you need to have just once at least.
New year we went to the restaurant Le Foundouk which was 2 mins around the corner to the Riad. This was a very classy restaurant at very high prices but it was new year. It worked out with wine to be around £230 for the evening but as I said it was new year and we had an amazing 6 course meal. Must try on a normal night though.
Overall the trip was very enjoyable and the Riad was in the middle of the old town 1 min from all the Souks. Will definitely return one day.

Room Tip: All 4 rooms are great

We stayed at Riad Dar-K for 5 nights in Dec 2012, at the Patio room and the Suite. We loved both rooms. The riad is very stylish and peaceful, a very comfortable place to relax after walking around the bustling souks of Marrakech. The location was very good.
Sarah, Malika and Yasim were very helpful and caring. We felt we were very well looked after. They even guided us to local restaurants so we wouldn't get lost in the medina.
We had the dinner at the riad for 3 nights and the food prepared by Malika was the best we have had in Marrakech. After travelling for a while and eating out everyday, the home-cooked food was very comforting.
Overall the experience was excellent. If we return to Marrakech, we will definitely stay here again and recommend it to our family and friends.
Thank you Sarah, from Jady and Jono.

This is a beautiful Riad with lovely views from the roof and a very warm, friendly and helpful host Sarah. The staff were also very friendly and lovely. They made our stay there over New Years really pleasant and a great relaxing break. We also ate in the Riad for one night by the fire, and the food was great and the setting very peaceful. From the pick up to the drop off the whole experience of the Riad was great.

The decor is modern and beautiful and looks every bit as good as the photos.

They made the stay really pleasant and the Riad was a peaceful haven from the madness of Marrakesh.

We went to the Atlas mountains on an excursion which was good. The mountains are beautiful but it’s more a case of going and having a few photo ops on the way rather than any walking or adventuring.

A great place to go and alot of fun.

My husband, my 2 yr old daughter and I stayed here for 5 days, and It was by far the best experience I've had. The owner Sara was very welcoming, kind, and professional. She answered all of our questions, and had reservations ready whenever we needed them. The atmosphere is relaxing where you feel right at home. The staff members Yassine and Malika were great in every way! Yassine showed us around the the old city, gave us so many tips and pointers, and most of all, my daughter loved playing with him in the open yard. Chef Malika is one of the greatest cooks. We loved her food so much, that i had to ask her to give me some cooking lessons. You have a few areas to choose where you would like to eat your meals. they are all great choices, from the roof top where you can see the whole city, to the court yard downstairs, to the balcony in front of your room. We had such relaxing mornings with some great breakfasts, best way to start your day. The Madina offers a whole new shopping experience. From all the small shops, to the open area full of performers and restaurants. Every street in this old city has a taste of its own. I would go back there in a heart beat!

Room Tip: We had the 2 bedroom suite. Nice size, and very comfortable

Our trip to marakech was made 10000000 times better by the caring of Dar K. What a wonderful experience in all ways. Everyone on the staff is lovely and warm. The food was the best I have had anywhere for a long time and ...I'm fussy! All in all a lovely experience. Sarah the owner is a gem. Trust the reviews on this one and enjoy a beautiful experience! My only sorrows was that I had to leave...and without letting Sarah know how she embodies graciousness and hospitality!
Thank you!

Room Tip: Loved the suite but all good!

We have just returned from Marrakech which we thoroughly enjoyed. What made the trip so special was this amazing santuary in the Medina. It is simply but beautifully decorated and Sarah and the rest of the staff were absolutely lovely and went over and above the call of duty. The location is perfect for exploring the city. Marrakesh is a crazy but wonderful place and it was great to have such a nice place to come home to each day. I would recommend drinks on the terrace in the evening too - lovely! Would be very surprised if anyone did not enjoy this riad. Stay here!
