Dar Chakia is a beautiful and restful riad on the edge of the markets and main square of Marrakech. My wife, 11 year old son and I have just finished a lovely four night stay with them,
We arrived late at night but were guided from our airport taxi (organised by the riad) by Rashid, who was the night manager. Rashid only speaks a little English - which Iwe loved as we were able to dust off our very shakey French. Rashid was a calming host, who generously walked us 10 minutes to our restaurant one night - we would never have found it without him - and then walked us back after our meal.
The dinner we pre-ordered our first night, and the daily breakfasts were delicious - especially the fresh orange juice.
The have a lovely plunge pool in the courtyard which was a great way to unwind after the day in the souks. And there were plenty of comfortable nooks to sit and read our check emails with th efree wi-fi. Lisa and Micheal own the riad and Lisa met us on our first morning and provided an invaluable annotated map and personal notes to help guide us through our days. Each of her recommendations were great - we were really pleased to have enjoyed four lovely nights with dinner out for three of them without suffering any health issues from our dining - thanks to the great recommendations.
I can't recommend Dar Chakia enough, it was a lovely stay, with lovely people.
