We had a pleasant stay in the Dar el Souk. Arrived at the airport and our taxi was waiting. It's only a short trip to the Riad, about 10-15 mins.
Once there, Madeline, the owner, sat us down in the courtyard and explained a little about Marrakech and recommended some great things to do and some fantastic places to eat. You are given a map on arrival, and trust us, you really do need it if you plan to venture around.
We stayed in the Sagha room which was very nice. Breakfast is served wherever you like, we ate ours outside our room but i would recommend eating on the roof terrace too. Breakfast consisted of pancakes, fruit salad, bread, tea/coffee and freshly squeezed orange juice.
You can eat in the Riad, you just have to tell the cooks the meal before what you want, although we did not get a chance to do this as Madeline recommended so many nice places to eat that we ate somewhere different every lunch and dinner.
Depending on your budget you can eat as extravagantly or as cheaply as you like.
The first night we ate on the square which was quite an experience. There are many stalls to choose from and you just sit down and order what you want. All the stalls generally cook the same things, and they are all of the same quality.
Some restaurants i would recommend if you want to splash out are Sultan hotel for lunch, and Les Tobsil for dinner - this restaurant is a converted riad and its a 5 course meal fantastically cooked with rose petals on the table by candle light.
I would recommend the tour bus also which takes you around medina and new city outside (hop on hop off).
After the day exploring the Medina, it was relaxing to come back to our Riad and chill on the roof terrace with access to the 'honesty bar'.
All in all a lovely stay at the Dar el Souk and would recommend Marrakech for an eye opening long weekend!
