We arrived after a long flight via London to be met at the airport by the designated driver. Upon arrival in the city Sasheem met our car and escorted us via foot to the hotel which one would never find on their own. You pass thru a door, down a small staircase and suddenly you're in another world. They had a candelit dinner waiting for us beside the fireplace. Our room, the orange suite was wonderful. I had concern how we might be treated as a gay couple but the staff went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. The hotel has a mystical feel and you can actually get lost making your way to the roof deck. We enjoyed a a sunset on the roof and the sights and sounds of the city are magical. The first morning they will escort you around the corner to the museum which is a must to get your bearings. You have to resign yourself to the fact your going to get lost in the souk and once you do then everything is ok. We spent 4 days in Marrakech and used one of the days to do a day trip in the Atlas Mountains. We checked out the Riad Farnatchi around the corner from Dar Darma and much preferred the feel of Dar Darma. Kosybar is a great spot for drinks. Le Foundouk is around the corner from the Riad and a great place for dinner. Enjoy the Riad it's a worthwhile endulgence!
