“The perfect honeymoon!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013

Where to begin? Dar Liqama is the perfect combination of old-world beauty and modern amenities. The property is gorgeous, tranquil and serene. One could run the risk of never wanting to leave.
The staff are so welcoming and warm, you instantly feel like family. The quality of food is superb, and the amount is endless!
Get a massage, enjoy the hammam, sample the honey from the hives, and the fresh eggs from the chickens.
I really never wanted to leave the property, but with everything so near, exploring is a must.

I hope to come back here, it was amazing!

Dar Liqama is just amazing - we stayed there a few years ago and have THE MOST incredible time - its very tranquil, architectural, beautiful and every space is unique. We took a camel ride from Dar Liqama which was so much fun and there is loads to do -visiting Marrakech, lazing by the pool, walking around the huge gardens, we even have an authentic cooking lesson at the house and a hammam. Breakfast was served on the terrace every morning by the pool....Oh and the views are wonderful too. Its not to be missed.

We stayed at Dar Liqama in Dec 2012. We found the hospitality to be amazing, beautiful grounds to walk and a lovely outdoor pool surrounded by Palm trees. The house was located perfectly for day trips to Marrakech (very nearby) and into the mountains and other tourist sites which they arranged beautifully for us. Would def come again!

I have just returned from 5weeks in Europe and Morocco, travelling with a dear friend. Our last week was spent at Dar Liqama villa just outside Marrakesh, for a week-long cooking school. It was a truly wonderful week. The manager of the villa and teacher of the cooking classes, Rafik, quickly proved to be extremely knowledgeable about traditional Moroccan cuisine, and shared this with the group in a professional,but fun manner. He was ably helped by his chief assistant, a charming young woman,Mouna. Many recipes were demonstrated and we shared in a number of the steps. All the students enjoyed the experience and appreciated the effort put in to the final night's graduation ceremony.

Mention must be made of Rafik's beautiful wife Hind, who gave me by far the best massage I've had in years and my first experience of a Hamman bath. My skin has never been so clean!

The villa itself is traditional in design and the rooms, all with private bathroom, were more than comfortable and serviced daily. All the staff were friendly, yet unobtrusive.

What made the week so enjoyable, apart from the cooking classes and spa treatments, were the trips that we made both in Marrakesh itself and further afield to the Atlas mts. The mix of cooking, excursions and free time has been carefully thought out. It was a great balance.

I have no hesitation in recommending both the cooking course and the villa. Altogether a wonderful memory to treasure.

I went to Dar Liqama as part of BBC Cuisine trip. Where we will learn about the Moroccan cuisine. Dar Liqama serve the purpose of the trip and more. Mr. Rafiq, the resort manager and the chief was so helpful in all aspects. He took us (8 ladies) through cooking sessions wherein we put our hand on famous recipes as well as tops and advices in cooking as general. The team at Dar Liqama make us feel home. They attended all our needs, from shopping lists to different dishes requests. The place is very well maintained and clean. the rooms are so big with nice terrace. The weather was amazing during our stay. The Moroccan Hamam And massage service at Dar Liqama is a must as (Jamila) the masseuse is the best in town. They chief Mr. Rafiq went the extra mile to tailor a special menu for one of the ladies who has food intolerance. The team not only suggested places for tour but took us to many great places.
Definitely i recommend Dar Liqama as a second home in Marrakech

I spent nearly a week at Dar Liquama and highly recommend it. The approach to the hotel leaves a bit to be desired but once you're through the gates, you won't regret it! The buildings and grounds are quite lovely - nicely furnished rooms & common parts + beautifully landscaped gardens. Probably one of the best features of the hotel are the staff - Rafik, the manager was very kind and accommodating and his lovely wife gives one of the best massages I have ever had! They were happy to arrange cars/excursions - it's about a 20 minute drive from the main city/souks. Nothing was too much trouble - they even got me a box of my favorite apricot teabags that I had not been able to find anywhere else!
This is a great place to relax - 2 pools, tennis courts and their own Hammam. I can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: All nice that we saw!

There are so many places to stay in Marrakesh, it feels like they are opening one new Riyad every day and you have the best and the worst. So Dar Liqama was a really fabulous pick and I cannot recommend enough this truly magical place. We have just returned from a week holiday with my wife and our three young boys and from the very minute we got off the taxi it was Wow! wow! wow! We were totally inspired by this place. Being a keen photographer I had so much fun talking great pictures of the house and grounds (?!! well you tell me...). The setting in the heart of the Palmeraie with the Atlas mountains in the background was extraordinary, the house design, the bedrooms, the giant pool, etc... there were just no fault, everything was well over our expectations. But what really made it so special for us was the staff and the cuisine. We felt this house belonged to us, the staff was amazingly kind and friendly with our kids, very efficient as well when they organised a trip in the Atlas for us, camel rides, quad bike hire etc. And the food.... this was like master chef coming to you. Our oldest child just turned 13 loves cooking and he made bread, pancakes, tagines with the help of the kindest and inventive chef. Being very fussy when it comes to holidays, I am trying hard to finish this review with a "but" and I just can't find one! A truly exceptional place.
