At the end of a busy trip in Europe Dar Moda was exactly the retreat we were looking for to relax and explore Marrakech. Elana and her team made our family (2 adults and 2 teenagers) feel "at home" in the beautifully rennovated Riad in the heart of the Medina. Attention to detail not only with the rooms but also their service was exceptional. Elena was an amazing hostess and provided much advice and help in planning and booking a 4 day 3 night trip across the Atlas Mountains to the desert and back again with a local guide/driver. An experience of the Morrocan culture, history, hospitality and scenery that we will never forget.
We parents stayed in the red room which had a perfect "office" space for us to attend to emails etc and the teenagers stayed up on the Terrace in their own suite with twin beds. The pools looked very inviting but being Winter the water was a little chilly to tepmt us to jump in! Daytime weather was perfect - blue skies and low to mid 20's -ideal for wandering around the medina and city.
We looked forward to breakfast every day and also at two evening meals in the Riad which were better than the "smart" restaurant we went to one night. Nothing was too much trouble for them and we really appreciated sitting down over tea with Elena to share with her the stories of our day out and about.
I highly recommend Dar Moda!!!
