We had no expectations other than the pics online. We were fully and absolutely well looked after from the moment we were picked up at the airport. If you never been to Marrakesh, the first time you step foot into the Medina could be somewhat overwhelming but the hospitality from the Riad Darna made out transition smooth and safe.
The Riad is extremely well located as its on the out-skirts of the Medina yet not in the heart of it which could be too much.
Our hosts, a lovely young couple did everything with in their power to make sure we were happy.
Breakfast in the terrace its out of this world.
The oasis inside the Riad bring a sense of calmness amongst the chaos going on outside its walls.
I would highly recommend anyone going to Marrakesh for the first time to stay here.
