“Home away from home!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

My husband stayed 3 nts and had a wonderful experience. We were treated like honored guests in a friend's house. All the staff were very professional, warm and friendly. They made sure our stay was as comfortable and pleasant as they could make it. Reservations were easy to make, and we were met at the airport so we did not have to worry about finding the Riad. The location is perfect, just off the main road and close to the market square and some of the key tourist sites. Once inside the riad, you really don't hear noises from the outside. The indoor atrium, living room, balcony areas and the rooftop terrace were all nicely set up with comfortable areas to sit, lounge, read, etc.
We chose room #2 which we believe is their largest room. It had a king size bed, and a dome with little glass covered holes so at night you can look up from the bed and it looks like you are looking at stars; during the day it lets additional light into the room. When we first got to the room, they had rose petals strewn about, which we thought was very romantic. There is no bath tub so we had to get used to the open shower which is very common in Europe, just have to accept that water will splash around, not really an issue.
Had dinner at the riad our 1st nt. We ate at two other places the other nights and we have to say that the food at Dar Anika was equally good and the service the best! There was a really cool nomad tent up on the rooftop terrace and that's where they had set up our dinner. The food kept coming and it was delicious! The presentation of the different dishes was very well done, like being in a Michelin starred restaurant. And service during dinner was impeccable.
Breakfasts were feasts! They have the best ever homemade yogurt which my husband loved. When you come back from sightseeing or shopping, someone is always ready to get you some tea and cakes. We also got a nice picnic lunch on our departure day. On top of it all, the staff brought flowers and a birthday cake for my husband while we were having breakfast one day since we were there for his birthday. They sang happy birthday twice, including one in the traditional Moroccan way! We were very touched.
Our stay really was one of the most enjoyable we've had in our travels. If we are ever back in Marrakech, will definitely stay at Riad Dar Anika again! Thank you so much for all you did to make our stay memorable.

Service was fantastic. When we arrived, the room was decorated with rose petals, as if we had hired a romantic package. The staff took care of us not only when we were at the hotel, but also being very helpful in dinner reservations, booking taxis and even gave us a small basquet with sandwiches and fruits when we left for the airport by lunchtime.

Location is great, walking distance from main atraction in the Medina. From outside, Dar Anika looks like any other house in the Medina. But inside, you find a charming and confortable place to stay. It is worth visiting!

Room Tip: we haven´t visited all the rooms, but a friend of ours had a room facing the street, and it was more...

Just spent 4 glorious days at this wonderful place. To Mr. Sanir to the rest of the staff - thank you for treating us like royalty - nothing was ever too much to ask! The friendly greetings, the friendly smiles and the effort all went to was just incredible. We were treated with total respect, kindness and total professionalism from the minute we arrived. The rooms were comfortable, clean and all attention to detail were taking into account. Mr. Sanir and the staff of this lovely and great place - will be one of the good reasons we will return to Morocco. Thank you from us all!!!! SP and friends from Johannesburg SA.

Room Tip: you just have to ask - the staff will be there for you.

I wasn't sure what to expect when visiting Marrakech as I hadn't really heard of anyones experiences before hand. Upon arriving to Dar Anika, the hustle bustle that surrounded the Riad was close to my expectation, however after entering the Riad it was as if I was transported to a fairytale land, somewhat resembling Aladdin. The welcome that I recieved from the staff added to my fairytale making me feel like Princess Jasmine.

The Riad itself was beautiful and the attention to detail in the décor was truly magical. The rooms were comfortable and no televisions truly enhanced the feel of a traditional Riad. The terrace where breakfast was served was an experience in its own. It was wonderful to sit and watch over the Medina and all that was happening outside whilst being in an environment so serene.

Breakfast was lovely with an orange juice, coffee, fruit salad, yoghurt and cake every morning, as well as almost anything you request. The staff were kind and attentive, constantly ensuring that my stay was comfortable and whatever I needed was available to me right away.

All in all, I would rate Dar Anika 10 out of 10. For anyone looking for a relaxing holiday or one with a true feel of Marrakech, Dar Anika would be the ideal place to stay as alll your needs will be met and all your expectations will be exceeded.

This place was truly mystical, magical and memorable.

We stayed here after being on the coast for a week. We were greeted with kindness, professionalism and style. In what has been one of our nicest stays on our travels in Morocco.

The hotel is well located, a short 5 min walk from main square, giving you some peace and tranquility, but with all the convenience that you need in the city.

Recommendations were excellent, pool was cooling and breakfast roof terraced delight. We were also surprised and touched at the snack provided for us for our flight home.

A thoughtful and lovely place.

I have travelled a fair amount for both business and pleasure. Dar Anika was our final stay in Morocco. I can honestly say that the service at this riad was the best I've ever experienced in over 30 years of travelling beating out even 5star hotel chains. From the riad's owner, to the manager, to the service staff, all were willing to do anything it took to make our stay comfortable. This included providing us espressos in the morning from a coffee shop across the street to buying is kilos of spices from their own supplier for fear that we'd be taken by unscrupulous vendors in the souks. We had an incredible multi-course meal at the riad that trumped any other Moroccan fair during our 10 days in country. The rooms were small but comfortable. The riad was an oasis.
