Just returned from a 4 night stay with extended family, including 2 yr old and 8 month old and had a wonderful stay at the Riad Dar Charkia - it was an utter delight to walk through those doors from the chaos and noise of the Medina into such a stunning, tranquil setting. The location is very central and walk-able to all the popular sights whilst being relaxing and quiet while you are actually inside the Riad...even the beautiful rooftop terrace is peaceful. We booked out the whole Riad as we were a large group with small children, which was great value for money and meant we were able to feel very much at home there for the whole trip. We also got to see all of the suites, which were all beautifully decorated in a local style and were all en-suite and spacious.
The breakfasts were delicious, and some of our group had an evening meal at the Riad, which was a buffet of local Moroccan dishes and was fantastic.
Lisa, Michael and their friendly welcoming staff are incredible at making everything run so smoothly and efficiently, whilst making us feel like we were in our very own home from home. The initial welcome chat from Lisa was very informative and useful, as was all the help with restaurant and excursion bookings before we left the U.K. which made the whole trip easier to manage - their inside knowledge is invaluable.
We would definitely love to return one day!
