I spent 7 days in Marrakech, 1st time ever in Marocco. When i arrived i was not sure what to expect, from the city, the riad & the culture. Travelling from the airport to the Riad is one of the best experience ever. From an airport with taxis and wide street to the Dar-K Riad ,hidden in the Medina of Marrakech. Taxi and Porter were organized by the Riad. When the doors opened In Dar-K you 1st see 4 beatifull orange trees with a wonderfull smell of the flowers. Sarah welcomed me and made me feel immediately confortable like at home. She made tee and took me to my room, which was on the 1st floor. Just gorgeous, simple, but functional. No TV, no phone, no radio, just a beatifull room with floors and bathroom in tadelakt, just my style. I went immediately to the roof terrace. Here you can enjoy the real relax & chill out. even here simple but beatifull style, with a tend that make you feel being in the desert. I spent quite some time on the roof, after breakfast or just when you feel like to retreat from the souks to your home, the Dar-K. I found out that Dar-K means "Your Home". I had dinner in the Riad on my 1st night. After the appetizer is was already done but then even more delicious food arrived. Sitting and eating in front of the fireplace and listening to chill-out music made the dinner very special, absolutely worth it. In the morning i was in bed and could here the kitchen preparing fresh squized orange juice, just this makes you feel to get up and go for a delicious breakfast, lunch is not needed if you take your time at breakfast, why hurry, you are on holiday, forget time and just enjoy in a relaxed mood.
Sarah and the staff are just great, she shows you how to get to the main square and takes you to the restaurant at night, dont try alone, you will get lost.... :-). When you are in the Riad you can always ask for a tee, coffee and snacks. The location of the Riad is in a safe place, at night you even find a security person that watches the ways. All in all i can just recommend Marrakech and the Riad Dar-K. I will definetely return to this Riad.
