“A Fantastic Place to Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

I stayed here for 3 nights for a friends birthday, there was a party of 6 of us. The Riad is a stunning surrounding in which to stay! There is plenty of attention to detail every where you look. The three rooms we stayed in were all lovely with vibrant colours and an exclusive feel. The staff could not have been be more accommodating and catered to our every need, without being pushy. Nothing was too much trouble for them.
Breakfast every day was lovely and on our last day we requested it up on the terrace which felt amazing!
Lisa helped make our break. She is so knowledgeable and gave us lots of recommendations for places to go, both in the day and at night as well as arranging taxi’s etc for us throughout out trip. None of her recommendations disappointed. Lisa's gives a great welcome talk on your first morning with plenty of information to help you out during your stay, a must if you are only staying for a few days and her map is a god send!
I would not hesitate at booking back at Dar Charkia.

My husband and I recently stayed at this fantastic Riad for four nights. Lisa and her team were very helpful, charming and the perfect hosts. We loved our room, the central location and the handy hints. Breakfast was a highlight, served at any time with something different every day. We would most definitely stay here again and highly recommend it!

I stayed here for my sisters 40th birthday so there was a party of 6 of us. The Riad is simply stunning, when we arrived it was all that we could do to not to spend the evening photographing the place. There is so much attention to detail every where you look. The three rooms I saw were all fabulous with their own characters and vibrant colours, it felt very exclusive. The staff well they couldn't be more attentive but not in your face. Nothing was too much trouble especially when I managed to lock myself out the safe!
Breakfast was lovely especially on our last day when we sat up on the terrace so relaxed. The staff really looked after us and even sprinkled 40 confetti over the breakfast table and put happy birthday banners up in my sisters room, lovely touch.
Not forgetting Lisa, who helped make our holiday what it was. Lisa is so knowledgeable that all her recommendations were fabulous. Due to our party size she booked restaurants for us and none of them disappointed. My favourite was Pepe Nero, such lovely scallop risotto. Lisa's welcoming talk is one not to miss, so much information which if you are only staying for a few days is a must, her map is a god send.
Already looking at flights to go back and wouldn't hesitate at booking back at Dar Charkia as simply loved it.

Stayed here in May.
Everything about the experience was perfect. The rooms are wonderfully decorated and very comfortable. The staff and owners are beyond friendly and very helpful. I would highly recommend staying here!

My wife and I spent 3 nights there in May. Great staff very helpful advice. Location is just right central to everything.Wonderful breakfast and food. Couldn't recommend highly enough.
Listen to all the advice Lisa and her staff have to offer....it will save you time,money and avoid some of the pit falls unsuspecting tourists can sometimes fall into.

We stayed at Dar Charkia for a week during May 2014, and it was the perfect oasis away from the hustle and bustle of the medina. The riad is small enough (6 rooms) for a very personal service, with an opportunity to get to know the staff, but big enough, with lots of little corners and spaces to have some time out and enjoy some down time, whether that is on the roof terrace, or by the plunge pool.

A perfect location! 5 - 10 minute walk to the main square and to the souks, and even within walkable distance to the new town, a taxi only costs 30 - 50 dirhams, so it's nice to have the choice.

Michael's "induction", along with the annotated map and local knowledge made us feel much less apprehensive, and we got straight out and explored the medina. We had a free transfer from the airport, an endless supply of delicious Moroccan tea, and the BEST lychee lemonade. All the staff were fantastic and couldn't help enough, from recommending and booking restaurants and excursions to discreetly cleaning our room daily.

The perfect stay, and we'll definitely return!

just got back from a four night stay in Dar Charkia;
it surpasses all others, for location, quality of the interior and décor, staff helpfulness and friendliness.Upon arrival, Samira gave us the tour and a great map of the city. Lisa had figured out that we were recently married and our room was all decked out in honeymoon decorations. She also arranged for a cake at Pepe Nero, which was very nice.
