“freindly and comfortable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2011

we had a fabulous time staying at Dar Atta - we all thought the rooms were clean, quiet and comfortable and the Riad itself was peaceful and relaxing. We had no complaints - the breakfasts were fine (could have had fresh orange juice though). The riad is in a great location, close to the square but still quiet. The best bits were the hammam and the staff - Andy and Marcie were very welcoming and really went out of their way to welcome us and help us with our trip.
We would all definately go back.

The great staff and friendly service make this comfortable Riad feel like your own home. Located just on the edge of the Medina means you can loose yourself in the souks within minutes but still easily find your way back home at night.

I cannot stress how helpful Andy and the team were during our stay at Dar Atta. From the very first they looked after us and made us feel at home in the beautiful surroundings. We had booked the 3 night kgb deal, however Andy had no problem with us changing our plans and splitting our stay into 3 single nights rather than 3 consecutive. They were very knowledgeable about Marrakech and the rest of the country, and gave us some very good advice about where we should head to next.

The rooms were large and well finsihed, and there is a great chill out area downstairs or a roof terrace for a bit of sun bathing. The breakfast is very bread based, but once we told them my friend was gluten intolerant they provided fruit and yogurt for her. The only tiny niggle is that the towels and robes provided were a bit scratchy, but this seemed to be the same everywhere we stayed in Morocco.

Once again, thanks to Andy, Ismail and Ali for being such great hosts.

We had an awesome 3 days in Marrakech thanks to Andy, Ismail and Ali! We found the well located Riad very easily and were greeted by the very friendly and helpful Andy who upgraded us to a a massive suite! The riad itself ticks all the boxes - well located, small enough to be personal but not too small, amazing staff, clean and quiet. It is not a super high end luxury boutique hotel ( and doesn't claim to be) so as a mid to high range Riad I cannot fault it one bit. The staff go out of their way to help you ( so far as helping us track down camera equipment) and nothing is too much trouble. The breakfasts ( standard Morrocan pancake, bread, coffee and juice) were lovely each morning and the in house hammam is highly recommended! Andy was an awesome host and made us feel very much at home and we would gladly go back. Thanks guys!!

Room Tip: Book the Hammam - it's well worth it!

10/10 to the professional photographer who took the promotional photos of Riad Dar Atta, as the reality is nothing like them. We found it to be very tired and dirty. The bathrobe, towels and bed linen were of a very poor standard, with stains and tears. Many facilities in the room did not work, and this was normal. We had the "Grand Suite" and paid £140 extra for not much extra. The riad was like hostel accommodation and the KGB "deal" of 73% off was in fact what the riad should be, although you can find many better riads and hotels far cheaper.

The Riad is beautiful, centrally located, clean with big rooms and an amazing roof terrace - it's not any of this that makes the place though - it's the delicious coffee at breakfast time and the staff, who, without exception are helpful, attentive, polite and very friendly.

Our only regret was not staying longer.

Do go on the day trip to the Atlas mountains. Don't stay up the night before trying to drink at the same rate as two Scottish boys.

We booked this as part of a KGB offer, meaning that it was £99 for 3 nights. For the money we can't complain but if we had paid full price we would definitely not have been particularly plesed. In all it was a bit of a mixed bag.

We liked:
Friendly manager (Andy)
Large rooms
Very close to the square
Our room was air conditioned (not all are)

We didn't like:
VERY scratchy towels and robes - fabric softener would have helped
Shabby and stained linens, cushion covers
Nowhere at the riad to get even some water
Surprise £40 charge for airport transport sprung on us 5 minutes before we left
Sullen staff at breakfast

They specialise here in 'adventure' trips, white water rafting etc. and there is definitley a hostel feel to the place. If I go back to Marrakech I will be paying a little more for a nicer experience but as I say, for the price it was ok.

Room Tip: If you are there in the heat of summer make sure to get a room with aircon
