I've been back from marrakesh for just over a week now and I still can't get over what a fantastic place it is ... I had some reservations about a group of 40 something women travelling to that sort of country but it far exceeded my expectations. Dar Habiba from the outside looks fairly uninspiring, however the minute you walk through the door your senses are awakened. We were hit with the beautiful smell if jasmine oil and rose petals strewn over the riad courtyard. All the rooms are beautifully ornate with lovely linen, artwork, objects d'art etc. the decor from the polished copper sinks to the gilt and fretwork is stunning. There's even a resident pair of tortoises!!!!!
So as a riad hotel I couldn't quite workout the set up. We had the whole use of the riad which was luxury. We had two lovely ladies who catered to our every need - food delicious. We had a traditional haman on site and also the use of Moustafa - who's presence was very reassuring and we greatly appreciated his advice and usefulness when booking Cabs, carriages and restaurants. NOTHING WAS A PROBLEM.
We couldnt fault the accomadation - am not sure what one of the previous reviewers expected for silly money each night but we all thought was awesome and between us all we've stayed in some nice places. I'd give it 50 stars!!
