Just back from a fabulous stay at the Dar Anika - it and Marrakech exceded our expectations in every way.
They pre arranged a car to meet us at the airport and effortlessly whisk us to the hotel. The door is a simple door - but then inside - an incredible moorish decor just oozing care and quality.
We were shown to our room of good size with a large bathroom decorated in the same vein with rose petals strewn thoughout. All spotlessly clean.
And then up onto the roof for an amazing Morroccan dinner - and Morrocan wine - they have a very good Morrocan wine list.
So all very good so far - then you get up the next morning and after a sumptous breakfast, again on the roof. They hit you with their secret weapon - service.
We were given a map and they sat down with us and explained where to go, what to see, how to get there, what a caleche/ taxi would cost for this route etc. (it kills the haggling when you go -"hotel says it's this much" - price comes straight down.
As for restaurants they just booked them, arranged a driver and that was all there was to it. By the way, you give the restaurant the driver's card when you are finished and he comes and takes you back.
All of this service is very discrete and in in no way pushy - they are are just there to help you have a great time. We had a truly effortless break - The team just organised everything quietly and efficiently for us.
The location is very good - it is just a straight line walk (say 5mins) to Jamaa Al Fna Square - you can't get lost and it felt safe walking back at 11.30 pm plus.
On top of this we had the Hamman and Massage in the hotel's facilities - very good and relaxing, I was falling asleep over dinner that night. Finally they arranged a car to take us back to the airport.
This was probably the most relaxing holiday we have ever had - all down to the efforts of the Dar Anika team - thank you.
