“Medina Oasis”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

I have stayed at Dar Andamaure for four days with my wife. Marrakech was the last stop of our 3 week Morrocco tour. After our exhausting tour it was a relaxing stop. It is 5 minutes away from Jemal al Fna and yet far from all hustle. Marie, Phillpe and Abdullah do everything to make us comfortable. Rooms are clean, breakfast is fresh and they serve you delicious dinner.

At only a few minutes walk of the Djemaa el Fna, the oasis of Dar Andamaure awaits you. The moment you step in, it feels like coming home. The hosts Marie, Philippe and Abdullah are extremely kind and make sure you feel at ease at once. They help you out with everything, and always had time for some chitchatting or spoiling our one-year old daughter with all the attention she could ask for.

The building has been completely reconstructed a couple of years ago, and they did a marvellous job. The 4 rooms are well-decorated, clean and airconditioned (you'll need that!) and the roof terrace is the perfect way to unwind at nightfall.

All in all we had a very pleasant stay and felt sad we had to leave. Definitively a Riad we would recommend!

When we arrived hot and tired, Marie offered us freshly squeezed orange juice on the terrace overlooking the city. She also arranged for us to have a bottle of chilled rose on the roof terrace at sunset served with candied almonds. It was probably one of the most delightful experiences we had in Morocco.
The rooms were lovely, the breakfast was great and the location was fantastic. We had a wonderful time and a year later still have fond memories of our stay there. Marrakech can often be hectic, and this hotel was a lovely oasis in the middle of it. If we ever go back to Marrakech we would definitely stay there again!

Awesome location in the middle of all the action! If you book 3 nights they give you a free transfer to the riad, very nice touch. Abdul is the most warm person you will meet. He is sweet, attentive and speaks pretty good English, as well as fluent French, Arabic and Berber. Nice sit-down breakfasts, served by Abdul... Marie and Philippe are the owners and Marie gave my husband and I a nice token gift as we left the Dar. If you're a light sleeper you may need earplugs. Old riads carry sound and also one can hear 5am prayer call (heard at all riads in this location) and roosters and cats can be pretty chatty...all in all a great experience at Dar Andamure and we would return.
Winter can be chilly in the main areas and the rooms are a bit dark.

don´t loose time searching for another riad, this one is perfect.
I´ve stayed only one night in october and i regret not staying more nights.
Was by far the best place we stayed in Morroco,we travelled for 10days,
The owner is really nice, helped us to get to the Riad after we have landedgave us good tips.
We went to a Restaurant really close from the Riad recommend by the owner and the food was really good and they had live music. We went there twice.
The staff abdulah is really professional and really passionate on what he does, he is a gentleman ,always around us.
Helped me carrying my surfboards :) Thanks.
The room and the Riad was absolutely clean.
My girlfriend was in Love for this Riad, so if you are travelling with your Lady :) for sure you will get approval from her :)

Dar Andamaure is an ideal choice for visiting Marrakech and the nearby Atlas Mountains. The hosts Marie and Philipe are warm and welcoming. We were met at the airport and transported to the entrance of the Djemaa el Fna and then escorted by Philipe right to the door of the Riad. A welcome glass of orange juice was enjoyed in the common room in front of the fire place while our luggage was taken up to our room. The entire Riad is extremely clean and well maintained. It glows with pride of place. Our hosts found a local guide for our trip to the Atlas mountains who was well informed on Berber culture and artisan markets. A delicious breakfast is included and dinner can be arranged with advanced notice. There is also a hamman (spa) and a roof terrace. The Djemaa el Fna is right down the lane and taxis are available at the square. We would definitely return.

Room Tip: Rooms are reached by stairs. No lift.

We stopped over for a short break over the New Year and had a really good stay - our host Marie and Phillipe could not have been more helpful or welcoming and ensured we had a very pleasant stay.
Had it not been for the fact that I am an ignorant monolinguistic Brit with rudimentary French only, I am sure that we cold have got even more out of the trip with a better grasp of either French or Arabic.
Marie and Phillipe don't push it but they can provide a really good evening meal - particularly if you like something stronger than water to wash it down.
We really recommend a stay if you want to be in the middle of the edina while enjoying the peace and quite which this lovely dar provides.
One word of warning, avoid the scrum in the nearby main thoroughfare (Derb Dabachi) on a Saturday evening - it can be a bit frightening with the sheer crush of people pushing their way in and out of the main square (Djeema al fNa) - but I am sure Philipe wil advise.
