We arrived in bustling Marakkech on a cool January night after a horrific experience with Royal Air Maroc Airlines from London (As a travel agent, I would NEVER book them or travel with them myself again!). Our flight was nearly two hours late and despite this fact, Dominique Raby, owner of Riad Dar More was patiently waiting with a drive. In spite of the late hour, we were warmly greeted and swiftly taken on a short drive from the airport into the main city, inside the Medina. We navigated charming little alleyways and stopped at the "Mini Eiffel" tower where had a quick stroll to the Riad itself.
The moment we were met at the airport (this is something you have to request) we were treated like royalty. The Riad itself looks like something out of a Conde Naste article (I've already written to them to recommend this riad!) Dominique's design taste is nothing short of impeccable. The color palatte, grey's, creams and steels creates the perfect marriage between French sophistocation and Moroccan eloquence. Softly lit corridors and plush chaise lounges make for the perfect romantic escape. Our room was gorgeous; Spacious, comfortable, bright, lovely and the beds were divine. Enjoy your delicious breakfast of fresh-squeezed orange juice, homade yogurt, and a few other goodies. Take your breakfast on their beautiful terrace and take in the magnificence of the Atlas Mountains. After an endless day of trapsing around the medina, rest your weary soul in the beautiful lounge while Jalil (one of Dominique's fabulous staff members) fixes you the most perfect pot of Mint tea you will ever have. Take advantage of the cooking classes!!! Mahassine will take you into the market to pick your ingredients, work her magic with you in the kitchen and voila, you're coming home with a few new recipe's to show off to your friends and family. Location? PERFECT! It's located no more than an 8 minute walk from the main square and all the souks-shop to your heart's content!
We loved Riad Dar More so much, we sent our parents there! They were just there at the beginning of March 2010 and are passing on the recommendation to their friends also. If you are ever in this great city, consider staying at Dar More, it really is a little gem!
