We had a long weekend in Marrakech to celebrate a significant birthday, and stayed three nights at Dar Tayib. Vincent and Latifa are amazing hosts, and they made us feel as if we were at home. They arranged an airport transfer for us and this was very helpful as, until you know your way around the souk, it can be confusing to find. We had an amazing home-cooked tagine ready for us when we arrived. The accomodation is on three floors, with the courtyard as its centre, with a fountain and orange trees. On the ground floor are rooms for lounging and reading in (and plenty of books available), with the evening meal served at tables in the courtyard itself. Bedrooms are on the first floor, with the upper floor a rooftop sundeck with loungers and a canopied sofa. We stayed in the Yasmina suite, with a four poster bed, romantic drapes and a HUGE bath tub. Definitely the room to choose for romance!
Vincent took us into the souk the first morning, and showed us landmarks to find our way back. It worked! We negotiated the narrow passages on our return that evening with no difficulty, something we would not have believed possible when we arrived.
Right in the centre of things
Good breakfasts (included) and evening meals (on request)
Amazing, authentic decor
Great for couples/groups of adults
Hard to find (arrange a transfer)
Steep steps to accomodation
Probably not good if travelling with younger children
