Our stay at Dar Roumana came near the end of a month-long tour of Morocco and it could not have been more welcome. The building itself is a marvel - a meticulously restored traditional Moroccan riad that is stunningly beautiful. Our room was very large with intricate tile and filigree work - it was quite literally breathtaking when we entered it.
Jennifer and Sebastian are great hosts. They know what they're doing and do a great job without being overbearing. The afternoon tea (or juice, or whatever you like) was a treat that we enjoyed every day. They gave us a good tip for a rug dealer so that we didn't have to waste a lot of time in trial and error.
We had the misfortune of one of us getting quite ill during our stay (not due do any fault of Dar Roumana!) and Jennifer graciously prepared some special meals, directed us to doctor and pharmacy and generally help to regain health - all very much above and beyond the call of duty.
The only struggle we had was with the hot water system, which proved to be a bit too complicated and/or sensitive for us to master. This was not a big issue, just a minor annoyance.
