Hi, We recently spent a week at Dar Limoun. Overall, well worth the price. Great location with a few drawbacks.
1- Bring cash. I booked through hotels.com. They verified that this Riad takes credit cards. I show up and the friendly host Fayid tells me their credit card machine is broken. I ask how long it will be to fix it; he said that it won’t be fixed. This is not accurate. When staying at a hotel in nearby Essouira they had a technician out to fix their credit card machine within hours. So this started the aggravating trek to find a way to get some extra cash in Marrakech. Most ATM’s in the Medina do not accept magnetic strip cards. A hike to the newer section and a helpful security guard later and we had cash in hand.
2- It’s difficult to find. There are signs leading to the alley way it’s on, but once there they had work done to the door and thus hand no sign. It’s a blue door on the right, right next to the collapsed building. There is a girl there throughout the day to open the door for you. If you need any help or directions, email me firstname.lastname@example.org .
3- Most of our stay we were the only ones in the Riad. The manager Fayid would bring in friends and family to eat downstairs some evenings. No problem, kids running around etc. One night we were there alone and a young unknown man opens the door and comes in. He goes to the roof top and enters the small computer room. This was a problem and incredibly scary. We knew the hosts there, met families, but for one guy to come in and hang out on his own, not so good. We left and were going to bail to another riad. Upon returning the man was gone and Fayid was there. I told him we were fine with family and friends coming in to visit. Fayid then strangely said that family and friends do not visit. This was within 3 hours of him introducing us to them. I asked about the man. Fayid told me his name and that there is a group of seven managers that share responsibilities between riads. They all have keys and in this case he was just coming in to check on things, use the computer. It would have been nice to know this when we checked in.
4- Toilet paper is scarce in Morocco.
5- There is a mosque about 70 feet from Dar Limoun, bring ear plugs if you are not ok with loud noises early in the morning.
