I have just returned from a wonderful three night stay at Dar Akal - a peaceful oasis in the heart of the busy medina and the best riad I have had the pleasure of staying at. It is beautifully decorated in a traditional style and the amazing staff take the experience to the next level. I recommend the transfer service from the airport which the riad offers; it is the best way to start your trip. The Manager, Said, will meet your taxi and guide you through the medina to the riad, he offers great advice on making the most of your stay, and is on hand to answer any questions or to have a chat with – always with a smile. Nezha and Sophia also looked after me well and were lovely. Nezha cooks beautiful food, from the breakfasts to the tagines, and you will not go hungry. I definitely recommend dining at the riad in the evening – there is no better restaurant than the roof terrace! The rooms are spacious and nicely decorated from the ground floor right up to the roof. The riad also features some excellent Moroccan photographs which I love! All in all, an amazing trip and can’t wait to return.
