“Amazing riad with amazing service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

Marrakech was the first city we visited in our honeymoon and we stayed in Riad Dar Anika for 4 days... It was indeed the best way to start our trip, with this riad full of nice decoration details and our room was amazing with a small patio just for the two of us. The service is simply incredible, all the people at the riad make you feel welcome and they are very helpful for every little thing that you need, from restaurant recommendations and bookings, to having your laundry done. Breakfast was served at the terrace and it was great. Every day they had different pastries and a choice of tasty dishes, our favorite was the Moroccan omelette and of course the mint tea that they serve you all day long. I would definitely recommend this place!

From the pick up at the airport to the warm welcome when we arrived we couldn't have asked for a nicer, sweeter, professional staff. They treated us like gold! Made reservations for dinner, cooked an incredible dinner another night on the rooftop for us, and scheduled a tour through the old city which was beyond fantastic! The room was beautiful, immaculately cleaned, bottle of water left everyday along with fruit and snacks. The Moroccan tea and fresh orange juice is to die for, and don't miss their breakfast.
Samir the manager goes above and beyond to ensure you have the absolute best experience not only at the Riad but in Marrakech. Can't wait to go back and visit them!

My sister and I stayed here for 10 days in August. We were warmly welcomed with refreshments and a very helpful briefing by the manager, Samia, with particular reference to our safety (we were two women travelling alone). He even gave us his personal mobile number. The room was cool, comfortable and spacious, and was kept very clean and tidy. Breakfast was extensive, served on the roof terrace with the riad's two resident tortoises. The waiter remembered our orders and preferences throughout the stay, and all of the staff from the manager to the cleaners were smiley and helpful. This was particularly appreciated when my sister fell ill in the middle of our trip. The staff helped me to cancel/ reschedule reservations for spas and excursions we had made, taking pains to retain the deposits I had paid wherever possible. They also brought us lunch in our room, despite usually only serving lunch and dinner with 24 hours notice, and then didn't charge us for any of it at the end of our stay. We were very sad to leave!

Room Tip: Ask for a room away the main road, Zetin el Kedim (call to prayer right outside our window!)

Everything in this place was just perfect. Since the way the staff makes you feel at home every time you get in, bringing you hommade cookies and an addictive mint tea, to the decoration details in every corner of the Riad. There was magic everywhere, It really was hard to leave that place.

Wow! What a beautiful place. The drive to Anika didn't suggest we'd be met with such opulence when we arrived. We had the traditional mint tea by the lovely pool before being shown our gorgeous rooms. We were upgraded to a lovely four poster - very spacious, cool and clean : we found the air con v effective! A huge comfy bed was most welcome after a tiring day negotiating the souks. Breakfast was fine. We had lunch a couple of times - it was okay but 1) nothing special and 2) expensive. It's quicker to walk to the square rather than taking a cab but it's not a scenic route (!) and a little unnerving so ask the hotel for a guide..at least for part of the way. The square is amazing at night and a real experience. Try the food stalls - we survived! Number 75 was excellent. The riad was a welcome oasis in the madness! If I returned to Marrakech, I'd definitely go back to Anika.

We stayed with Abou in Riad dar Anika in January of this year for a week on our honeymoon.
It was our first time in Morocco travelling from Ireland.
On first arrival in Marrakesh it looks like a daunting city, but the warm welcome from Abou and his staff (and tortoise called couscous) made us feel right at home :)
We were brought into the beautiful Riad from a busy street and greeted with pastries, mint tea and milk.
Once we had relaxed after our travelling, we were invited onto the lovely roof terrace that has full views of the old town were Abou spent an hour with us giving us our bearings around the city with a map and drawing points of interest and telling us the do's and don’ts.
On arriving in the city we were sure we would hire a guide to show us around, but after the hour with Abou he had put our minds at rest and we felt happy to venture out by ourselves.
Abou pretty much organised our entire week for us, booking restaurants and show’s -without him we would not have seen a quarter of the things we did and would have fallen into the usual tourist routines and traps.
The Riad is a beautifully decorated in a traditional manner and is a calming spot in the middle of a bustling city, the staff could not do more to make you feel welcome.
Fresh flowers in the room and rose petals on our bed!!
The food is unreal - just be aware that there is so much of you will probably put on a few pounds!!
Traditional Moroccan breakfast is served on the beautiful roof terrace - this is a real treat.
The Raid is a real gem in the heart of the old town in Marrakesh and Abou and his staff honestly could not do more to welcome you to the beautiful Riad and their city.
My wife and I both travel regularly on business and we have never experienced service like it.
Top marks and highly recommended :)

My daughter and I spent 3 nights at Dar Anika and were blown away by its beauty, tranquillity and tasteful interior. The level of service of its staff was without compare. We were welcomed with piping hot mint tea and wonderful pastries and cakes. Our room was decorated with rose petals and the plunge pool gave welcome relief after the heat of the day. The top terrace, where we enjoyed a scrumptious breakfast, had wonderful views over the medina. Situated close to most of the main tourist points of interest this riad is a must to stay at.
