Booked this Riad after reading excellent reviews and having never been to Marrakech it sounded ideal. Michael provided us with a through talk about the area on our arrival that helped greatly and enabled us to get out exploring right away! The Riad is beautiful and excellently located with quality service provided by the friendly and helpful staff that made the stay a pleasure. We stayed in the Khmissa room, which was beautiful, spacious and quiet. Breakfast we found to be adequate and varied slightly each day.
After lots of recommendations provided by Lisa & Michael prior to our arrival we arranged to eat at Pepe Nero our first night and had an excellent meal in very nice surroundings. After we had got our bearings we arranged to eat at another two of their recommended restaurants, which were also excellent.
We had a a day trip arranged to Lalla Takarkouste Lake & Imlil valley with lunch at Kasbah Angor and a camel ride in the afternoon! This was a brilliant day out and we got to experience life outside the city and the spectacular scenery. We also arranged to have a hamman, massage & lunch at Palais el Miria, which was a great way to end our 6 night stay.
Thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to Marrakech and Dar Charkia and its staff made our stay all the more special. A special thanks to Siaid the night watchman who was absolutely lovely and very interesting to talk to.
