“Abbiamo fatto centro !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

Fascinating ryad in a most convenient location, extremely nicely furnished. Excellent cuisine. Nice though sometimes not totally efficient personel. Very good prices for the true beauty you get.
Be aware that they do not accept AmEx cards, but they forget to tell you until you produce the card for check out ( even though it is the same card you used to secure your reservation !).
And remember that they only have one key to each room, so do not take it with you for the day or they would not be able to clean your room.
All the above we learned at our expenses, but would gladly forgive in consideration of the fact that everybody was extremely kind. I would go back tomorrow !

A very beautiful and spacious riad with lovely courtyard and two sunny roof terraces. The food was stunning and the service very friendly and patient (our French and Arabic was limited!). They even offered to post our postcards as we forgot to find stamps while shopping!
We like to try different places but think it'd be hard to pass up Dar Doukkala for our next trip to Marrakech.

Room Tip: From what we saw all the rooms were beautifully fitted out and very large

Riad Dar Doukkala is a haven in the middle of the chaotic city that is Marrakech. From the moment we were greeted at the door on arrival by the owner, Philippe, we were made to feel totally at home. The Riad is decorated in a tasteful style combining local style and touches of the owners native french style. Each bedroom is different and ours (number 5) was perfect for two female friends traveling together. Opening onto the central courtyard, it had a wonderful bathroom and a separate sitting area. The atmosphere in one of total calm, in contrast with the atmosphere on the streets of Marrakech, just outside your front door. The location is perfect, a five minute walk to the Souks or the Square and despite warnings from everyone, we didn't get lost once. We dined in the Riad on two of our 3 nights and the food was delicious and served in the tranquil surroundings of the courtyard. The breakfast was also delicious and served where ever you wished to have it. In your bedroom, in the courtyard or on the roof top terrace where the views over the city are spectacular.
I could not find a single fault with Riad Dar Doukkala and would recommend it for anyone travelling to Marrakech who likes an oasis of calm to escape to.

As has been said, from the moment you walk through the door, you are transported to a heavenly place. The rooms are spacious, beautiful and well appointed. You feel as if you are in a fairyland. The personnel is attentive to your every need while totally unobstrusive. And the food is "a party for the palate" - If you go, be sure to eat in at least once! While the breakfast is pretty much the same every day, we found ourselves looking forward to it as it is quite good. As for location, after experiencing the madness that is Marrakech, we realized that the location is outstanding for visiting anywhere in the Medina while also allowing taxis to drop you off within feet of the door.

If you want to experience a true Riad atmosphere and indulge yourself like a Pascha, this is the place to be in Marrakech. It was my second time there and can't wait to go back !!!!
