I stayed in Dar One Riad several months ago, and looking back over my photos feel compelled to write my first TripAdvisor review!
I'm a frequent traveler and have stayed in a variety of boutique hotels around the world. Dar One tops nearly every one, and is, by far, the best value for luxury. 5 stars all-around.
For a bit of elaboration: 1) The ambiance! The rooms, lighting, terrace, waterfalls, music, candles- super. I felt like royalty, really. I think the pictures attached sum it up. 2) The service was impeccable. The owner, Jean Peres, and his team of locals will help you have the best possible experience in the city/Medina and while lounging around the hotel. Through their guidance we were able to partake in the best of Marrakech's restaurants, nightlife, historical sights, cultural venues and local spas (wonderfully priced, too!) 3) Details, details, details- from the linens to the towels to the furniture. I pay attention to these things. 4) The breakfasts on the terrace (see pictures, enough said). 5) Location- right in the Medina.
These are just a few of the highlights. Admittedly, I'm a bit reluctant to post this review given that I'd like to have a relatively easy time booking a room in the future! But, alas, I see the secret is already well out; 167 reviews at a 5-star average on this website alone...You can rest assured this boutique hotel experience is everything one could want, expect and imagine.
Thank you Jean Peres and your (attractive ;) Dar One Team!! Hope to see you again soon.
