I too was incredibly surprised to read the negative review below as this couldn't be further from the truth. I suppose there just isn't pleasing some people! My long weekend to Marrakesh for a friends Hen do, was made all that more special by the fabulous stay at Dar Charkia. Unlike this other reviewer, I can honestly say service was second to none - friendly; welcoming; informative; helpful - bend over backwards kind... need I go on. Anything we wanted was made possible. Lisa and Michael couldn't have been better hosts and their staff were just as fabulous and great fun.
Upon our arrival we were greeted with such warmth and made to feel very welcome instantly. We had dinner in the Riad on the first night and the food and wine (try the local vin gris) was exceptional. Not a single one of us went hungry! The next morning we were given an incredibly thorough and in depth 'top tips' chat with Lisa, which set us up perfectly for the days ahead. I had been to Marrakesh only a few months before and didn't receive anything like this from where I stayed previously, and had this been the case I definitely would have had a more enjoyable and better educated stay first time around.
All in all, I just couldn't think of a bad word to say about Lisa, Michael, their staff and generally Dar Charkia. I absolutely loved my stay and will most definitely be coming back. If I could rate 10* I would!!
