Dar Charkia is as good as everyone says because of Lisa, Michael and all the staff. If every hotel, accommodation outlet and the likes could be half as enjoyable then all of our holidays would be phenomenal. From the time my wife and 2 kids aged 19 and 17 stepped off the plane and were greeted at the airport by a pre-arranged taxi to the time we arrived back at the airport by a pre-arranged taxi, the service and quality provided by Lisa, Michael and the staff was fantastic. Nothing ever seemed to be too much to ask for.
The riad itself is nestled in a quaint back street alley, typical to Marrakech and all its riad’s, so anyone expecting to see a massive sweeping drive then please go to Disney in Florida. The ambiance once you walk through the wooden door is of peace and tranquility and the service offered is second to none. Nothing was ever too much an effort for Lisa, Michael and the staff.
During our stay our hosts were more than willing to help us in any way they could, recommending restaurants, all of which were varied and excellent, to advising on the town and its surroundings plus any local sightseeing trips, to even assisting in a little bit of shopping. What more could one ask for when on a short stay?! As with the other reviews the riad is spotless.
The food, especially the breakfast was excellent. Fresh fruit, sweet pastries, local pancakes, mint tea, coffee, English tea, fresh orange juice, local bread, tomatoes, cheese, plus other niceties you may desire by request such as eggs, but honestly, the standard breakfast was more than sufficient. The riad also accommodates evening meals which again were just as complimentary as well as tea, coffee and a variety of alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks throughout the day (obviously at a cost).
The question is would I go again. Absolutely, assuming I can get a room, as I now know why it is so popular. I can’t thank Lisa, Michael and the staff enough!!!
