“Sublime”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

We spent just two nights here at the end of our Moroccan holiday but it was the perfect finale to an fantastic 10 days in a wonderful country and an amazing culture.

Dar Anika is in a great position with an easy walk to the main square and souks and just a stones-throw from Bahia Palace and El Badi Palace (both are must-see places). The riad itself is immaculate from top to bottom. From the moment you step through the front door it is a beautiful little oasis with its reception and central courtyard. Our room was spotless and really comfortably furnished with a nice firm four-poster bed (nice crisp linen) and then on the roof level is a dining area and also some sun lounges etc for chilling after a dip in the pool.

Food: The breakfasts we were served on the roof were great quality and abundant. A mixture of western (coffee, juice & scrambled eggs) and local (fruit, soup & pastries) fare. They set us up well for our days exploring round Marakesh. However the highlight was on our last night when we ate on the roof terrace. A Moroccan feast was bought to us course by course and the beef tajine was AWESOME! All washed down with a nice bottle of Moroccan red.

Service: As good as the Riad itself is and as great as the food was, its the service that gets this place five stars from me. It is very clear from the time you arrive that nothing is too much trouble for these guys. They really wanted us to have a perfect stay in their Riad and in Marrakech itself. They arranged taxi's, dinners out (& dinners in), a tour guide, airport transfer for us. No problems. They are thoughtful and very helpful without being in-your-face at all.

Bottom line: This is not a budget destination but you get value for your money. Perfect location, great accommodation, great food & amazing service.

Many Thanks Guys! :-)

PS: Dont forget to feed the pet turtles on the rooftop at breakfast!

Room Tip: We stayed in room 1 which was fantastic. I think there are only 12 rooms and whilst we didn't s...

The hotel had sent us a taxi to pick up from airport. Everything was v smooth. When we arrived, we were asked to sit in a lovely peaceful room and served tea and cakes! No reception formalities, 'no fill the form and here is your key' dryness. It was a lovely warm welcome. First room we stayed in was a bit noisy, but when we mentioned it to the owner, we were promptly moved to a larger, quieter room. The breakfast is served on a beautiful terrace lined with bright flowers. Food is delicious. Service is very friendly and always with a smile.
On our first day, we were given an orientation talk and a map by the owner himself. The map turned out extremely useful.
The hotel is 10 min walk from the main square and souk shopping. There is a petit taxi rank opposite the hotel. It is very convenient.
It was our anniversary and we were presented flowers and a frozen dessert/ icecream cake which was delicious.
On our last day, our flight was at 10pm and checkout was at 12 noon. They let us spend the whole day in the room which was absolutely wonderful as it was v hot outside. We are both extremely grateful for the hospitality. On our way to airport, they gave us packed food :)
Thank God they did because our flight was delayed. It was overwhelmingly warm hospitality and beautiful setting. There is a lot of loving thought put into everything that goes on here.
I would thoroughly recommend this place.

A true oasis of peace and relaxation in the heart of the Medina. The welcome we received from the staff, and their kind attention throughout our stay were truly exceptional. Spotless and charming rooms, incredible breakfast on the terras...We travelled with two adults and two teenagers. We will definately return to Dar Anika when in Marrakech.

Fantastic experience with the perfect support to enjoy the mystery of Marrakech. The staff was very cooperative and easy to communicate to. They went well beyond their duties as to set up a special table for us to watch the Soccer World Cup (too bad Brazil lost the way they did). They consistently provided us with refreshments and treats, without charging us for them.
Next time, we'll be certain to use their transfer services from the airport; at the end we spent more and had an uncomfortable situation; on the way back to the airport, we used their services and the driver really protected us.

Our family loved staying here. My children (21, 13 and 13) were happy to be here. The rooms are spacious and well-equipped. The flower petals all over were very welcoming also. The location is perfect near the town and the famous market. Samir was most helpful in recommending restaurants for lunch and dinner. Our last night we enjoyed a fabulous dinner at Dar Kniza restaurant. The breakfasts were wonderful. The staff gave great service. When we were commenting on the cherry sellers outside, they brought us bowls of cherries. Samir found us a good driver to take us to El Jadida the next day who helped with what we needed to do in town. WE would highly recommend this place. Thank you!

Room Tip: The suite was beautiful with its dome.

My wife and I spent 4 nights ar Dar Anika (June 2014) and were stoked with the beauty and the service of its staff. After our arrival at the Riad almost at midnight, we were welcomed with mint tea and very tasty local pastries. The riad is in a beautiful building with decorated rooms, a few steps to Djeema El-Fna Square.
In our first morning, before we go out to discover the city, the manager (Abu) called us for a little talk about the riad services and give us some tips about the city. By the way, the riad is situaded close to most of main tourists point of interest and it's possible go to everywhere in the Medina with a short walk and a 40/50-walking you can go to the new city as well.
We decided to reserve a typical morrocan dinner in the riad. I've got no doubt to say that it was the most amazing dinner in our lifes. Everything was just perfect, the main dishes (lamb and chicken tagines) and all the atmosphere around the Medina on the riad's rooftop. I really recommend have dinner in the riad, it's amazing. The breakfest is also fantastic, with fresh fruit juices, warm breads and cakes.
All the staff was very friendly, helpfull and polite.
In general, it's a first class hotel. Special thanks to Abu and his staff for the amazing days that we had there.
Definitely, we'll stay in Dar Anika when travel to Marrakech again.

The service is exceptional, from our arrival at the hotel until we left the hotel! Well, since we made the reservation, there was an email almost from the hotel for the details and if we need any help. Once we arrived, Abu also helped us with the trip planning. They helped us with the train tickets to Fez, and even packed some lunches on the day we left after our huge breakfast.

Location is good. Not far from the Jemaa el-Fnaa, and the two palaces. Taxi stands are just across the street.

Hammam is also good, if you'd prefer a private one.

Fantastic time in Marrakech
