This was my first trip to Morocco and I have truly fallen in love with the culture. I especially enjoyed my stay at Dar Fakir as it made the experience even more special... and I would love the opportunity to return.
The location is superb as it's only a 5 min walk to the main square. So, there is plenty to explore on your doorstep which is ideal especially for a short stay.
The riad is breathtakingly beautiful from the first moment you step in. It's a treat for all your senses with the exquisite aromas from the reed diffusers and burning candles, to the soft music playing in the background through to the sight of the open court yard with the pool.
The rooms are super clean and quite frankly stunning! The beds are enormous and extremely comfortable. I would really enjoy to wake up the sound of the little birds singing that came to the open court yard every morning.
The service is impeccable and the staff are so friendly, professional and helpful if you need advice.
We only had breakfasts here and they resembled a banquet, filling the table with a variety of croissants, cake, yoghurt, baguettes, pancakes and more! Unfortunately, I'm gluten intolerant so I'd always opt for the omelet with Moroccan cheese. It has to be the most delicious omelet I've ever had, (thank you Ridwan).
We could have our breakfast laid out anywhere we chose within the riad, and quite often we would chose to sit by the grand fire place, but on our last day as it was warm and sunny we decided to sit on the roof top terrace overlooking the Atlas Mountains in the distance. It was the perfect way to spend our last morning in Marrakech.
