I stayed at Dar Charkia with my girlfriend for five nights (three nights in the suite and two nights in one of the "regular" rooms). The experience was nothing short of amazing. The owners, Lisa and Michael, are extremely helpful and knowledgeable about Marrakesh and its surroundings. Their restaurant recommendations were spot on (do yourself a favor and go to El Fassia - you will not regret it!). Oh, and I did mention that they are both really, really nice people?
The riad itself is just perfect, a real oasis of peace and tranquility in the hustle and bustle of Marrakesh. The rooms are nice and clean but the courtyard was my favorite part of the riad - I loved sitting at one of the little tables at night and drinking tea or wine. The breakfasts are great too - everything is very fresh and tasty. The staff is awesome as well - especially the night guard Mohammed who always greeted us with a big smile on his face and made sure we had everything we needed.
All in all, I would totally recommend Dar Charkia if you are thinking about going to Marrakesh (don't think too long, just do it!). It totally felt like home away from home.
