“The perfect ending to a wonderful vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2012

Our last night in Morocco spent at the Riad Dar Binebine, with our hosts Clovis and Mahjouba, was the perfect ending to a wonderful vacation. It was our last night together as a family before going our separate ways. I wanted to visit Marrakesh and its famous main square Djemaa el-Fna, but my husband and I were a little reluctant to spend our last night in a busy city with chaotic driving, haggling over prices; the potential frustration of having to deal with last minute hidden additional costs when paying a bill. We did however, still need to do some last minute shopping and a place to stay, so our youngest son aged 25 and his girlfriend recommended the Riad Dar Binebine.
After a stressful hectic drive consisting of a series of misses and near hits as my husband maneuvered amidst a jungle of cars, mules pulling carts, big trucks and often what appeared to be a whole family on one moped, with women holding babies in their arms, we finally made it into the Medina, by going up a one way, and parked the car. We walked through narrow streets lined with every manner of shops, then at the end of an alley; beyond a big old locked door lay an oasis of peace, tranquility and beauty, with all the creature comforts of home. This Riad is an honest to goodness pearl, with a lush courtyard and super clean and stylish accommodations. The very best part though, was our gracious hosts Clovis and Mahjoub, both friendly, easy going and delightfully smart and funny. We all (myself, husband, two sons and girlfriend) enjoyed their company so much that we never did make it to the souks for the last minute gifts. Later that evening Clovis brought us to visit the sights and sounds of the Djemaa el-Fna. We all ate at his favorite food stall where we sampled a tasty variety of local delights. The next morning after the most restful and comfortable sleep, of the previous 7 nights, Mahjouba made us a delicious breakfast. I can honestly say that our stay at Riad Dar Binebine with Clovis and Mahjoub was most definitely one of the highlights of our trip; given the chance, we would all return and spend a lot more time!

This Riad is a beautiful place to have a rest after a day walking around the Medina. This is great because you could walk from the big central place to the Riad in just 10 minutes. Or going to the souk is even shorter.
Drinking a delicious Moroccan tea, made by Clovis the manager, under the Berber tent on the flat roof was really relaxing.
It was so nice starting the day being awaken by the small singing birds and having breakfast on the nice courtyard with of lot of greenery. The breakfast made by Mahjouba is quiet simply gorgeous.
The room and the bathroom are really clean and the atmosphere in them brought me in the perfect holiday mood.
It was such a good time chilling out in the two cosy lounges, or sharing some stories with Clovis and Mahjouba. By the way, they give me really good advice to visit the city or to go out! This two hosts are so nice. Always smiling and ready to help.
The Riad Dar Binebine give me a really simple welcome. It was like going back home.

We travelled to Marrakech recently and had a fantastic Stay at the Riad dar tyor. The Riad itself is a beautiful building. The guest rooms, terrace and countyard are immaculately presented and very welcoming after a long day exploring the surrounding area. The Riad is well located and approximately a five minute stroll to the souks.
Valerie and Majhouba and the rest of the team are perfect hosts and incredibly accomodating. They were always on Hand to offer advice or assistance, whether it be for day trips or dinner réservations. We would absolutly recommend a laid Jack evening in the Riad One niche.
We are really looking forwrd to côme back

You'll be overwhelm with the hustle and bustle of Marrakech and certainly afraid to get cheated! Never fear as Valerie, Jean-Pierre and their wonderful staff are the perfect people to welcome you to the city. Good location, great value for money and best of all fantastic staff. I spent hours looking at Riads online not knowing what was good or not, I can highly recommend Dar Tyor! Make sure to ask for a "stay-in" dinner! AND best of all you can always ask Valerie for advise, recommendations and or reservation - she'll be more then happy!

We spent five nights at this Riad. It is very nicely decorated in typical Moroccan style and very well managed by an extremely friendly/helpful French couple and Moroccan Staff. Well located in the old district. Rooms are spacious, clean and well maintained. We where their with our two daughters (aged 9 and 11), on the last day they organised a lady to give them a henna hand painting which was beautiful and authentic.

We had a delightful stay in Riad Dar Tyor. It’s a beautifully stylish but comfortable place where we were made to feel completely at home. Valerie was a brilliant host and very thoughtful. We would happily stay there again and would recommend it to anyone.
