This is our first ever review on Tripadvisor and it was our experience at Dar Darma that has prompted us to leave one. First of all, the Riad is Beautiful. The renovation of the Riad has been done to...

We have just returned from 5 days at Dar Darma and having never bothered to leave a review for anywhere we ve ever stayed before this time I had to. This riad and its staff are simply wonderful.

The Red Apartment in Dar Darma is mesmerizingly beautiful with incredible decor and stunning architecture. The Riad is a perfect harmony of modern and historical and is one of the most beautiful settings from which to enjoy amazing Marrakech.

From the moment we were collected from Marrakech airport we were treated to the luxurious, private and friendly 'home from home' at the Riad Dar Darma. The staff were exceptionlly kind to us, and ensured that we were well looked after. We were upgraded to the Red Apartment; a suite bigger than our own home, with ornate and opulant decorations...

in the middle of the Marrakech medina, a quiet and luxurious riad where you feel at home exquisitely decorated by its owners with local objects, antiques and Moroccan details all around rooms are very quiet, maybe a bit dark for some tastes, but providing absolute privacy breakfast at the rooftop terrace is a must! they also do dinners on request,...

We chose Marrakech as the destination for a pre wedding trip - myself and 5 girlfriends and were recommended to look at Riad Dar Darma. From the point of booking with Laura (based in Milan), everything was great and nothing was too much trouble. We chose the Red Apartment as there were 6 of us and this was a 2...

We had high expectations of this "Mr and Mrs Smith" recommended Riad - and they were dashed. Overall the Riad is stylish - but it's a case of 'fur coat and no knickers' . The dimly lit rooms were depressing and a bit tired. On the plus side - the breakfasts were spectacular - and the folks were friendly and...
