Staying at the Dar Elma was a very good experience. We got wonderful service - especially Khadija was outstanding - she really went beyond any of our expectations when we needed her help. The rooms were charming, nicely decorated and very clean. The riad is centrally located - if hard to find - but we asked their driver to pick... More

We spent two nights at the Riad. The service was superb and the facility was very clean and tidy. From picking us up and delivering us our every need was attended to with courtesy and helpfulness. One evening we had our dinner prepared for us and delivered to the roof top terrace. A great meal and a wonderful experience. We... More

We stayed for 4 nights at the Dar Elma and went half board, the food was very good and the ladies working in the Riad were very friendly. The only bad point about this riad is that you can hear everything, we spoke in whispers at night as to not disturb the other guests, you can hear everything so if... More

We stayed there a couple of nights during our visit to Marrakesh last year. The service was good, they picked us at the airport ( which youhave to request in advance and pay an extra) which was awesome as we arrived at midnight and they offered us fresh mint tea upon arrival to the hotel.. the room was clean and...

If you stay at Dar Elma or its sister property L'heure d'Ete you will certainly meet Hassan. He's the one with the big smile. He speaks good English, is charming and personable, and has a great sense of humor. He divides his time between the two properties and is one of the friendliest and most helpful people I encountered during... More

This riad is beautifully presented, and the hospitality of the staff was very warm and welcoming. It is located in the medina of Marrakech, the old city. By staying here we were simultaneously immersed in the daily lives of Morrocans while having a peaceful oasis to stay in. The staff, especially Hadija, made our stay exceptional. Nothing was too much... More

This is a nice little riad with a pretty interior and a lovely roof terrace. The location is good and away from the noisy marketplace. The staff were friendly and offered a very warm welcome. The bed was comfortable and the riad was very quiet which meant we slept well. However, the cleanliness of the room was a bit lacking... More

In a nutshell, I'd go back for more! Me and a friend booked the spa package which I believe you can book direct through their website (we did so through an agent). It involved one hour of treatments for three days and was incredibly reasonably priced. The Riad prefers a modern style over traditional Morroccan style. The rooms are minimally... More

I was so turned off by our poor experience at Dar Elma, that I had to write a review in order to encourage others to stay elsewhere. The rude attitude of the manager here bordered on offensive and turned what should have been a lovely stay, into one that we couldn't wait to end. Although the rest of the staff... More

Arrived tired after a long drive and were welcomed warmly. The tranquility of this Riad is wonderful and yet it's only a few minutes walk from the hubbub of the markets. Our rooms were comfortable, clean and well-equipped and we found the staff extraordinarily helpful and hospitable - courteous, friendly and amiable all at once. We particularly liked the cool...
