Where to begin... A truly amazing place. Dar Fakir was fantastic. Hidden away nicely from the hustle of the Medina but close enough to be able to enjoy a walk to the Souks or a terrace bar for a drink and an afternoon of people watching.
We stayed at Dar Fakir for four nights mid November and it was perfect.
We choose to stay in Suite Iswane and it was everything i hoped it would be. It romantic, classy and very refined.
The Riad is maintained to the highest standard, the decor is amazing and the staff are helpful, attentive and most importantly very friendly. The director Kerstin is brilliant, her knowledge of the area, restaurants and pretty much anything we wanted to know helped to make us feel very at home and relaxed and created a real lasting impression. She offered us a number of high class services ranging from drivers to and from destinations, night porter services to walk us back from nights out as well as an excellent suggestion of restaurants and bars to try out, all of which were brilliant. Great food and fantastic atmosphere in each of them. (La Salama, Tanjia and L'Avenue were our choices and I would thoroughly recommend them all)
A personal highlight for me was the amazing meal we had cooked for us in the Riad itself. Situated in the room with open fire it made for the most prefect way to spend a night after a day out and about. It was quiet, relaxing and with the fire burning in the background very atmospheric.
As I said before, a truly amazing place and one I would definitely recommend.
Thank you to Kerstin and everyone at Dar Fakir for making Marrakech a very special holiday.
