I booked this Riad exclusive hire to celebrate my birthday - inviting my friends for a five night stay.
Dar Fakir has THE BEST location for any type of visit to Marrakesh; no matter if you are 1st timers, party people, or have sightseeing and culture interest, want to maximize your shopping spears and visit all the best restaurants and nightclubs. Dar Fakir is within super easy reach to it all and they leo offer a really reliable car service with close dropp off and pick up even if you stay right in the Medina.
Dar Fakir har THE BEST service and NICEST people/staff you could ever wish for. Every one of them gave us so much care and attention through out or stay - they really made sure we had everything we needed and wanted at all times. They booked excursions, guides, transfers and restaurants and nightclubs for us and no matter how many time we rearranged our program they sorted it out for us and fixed ad-hoc solutions in the most brilliant way. They served us lovely and magnificent breakfast on the stunning roof terrace were we also enjoyed many hours in the sun drinking coffee and tea as well as champagne and wine. No matter what we asked for or what time of day or night we were up - so where they and with a smile and service willingness out of this world.
Their chef is excellent - not only did she make amazingly good cakes and breakfast omelets but she also cooked outstanding three course dinners for us that we truly enjoyed in Dar Fakir ambient and beautiful setting.
Dar Fakir has THE BEST atmosphere and decor - its simply so stunning, warm and welcoming. We all felt that it was like living in this magic hide away place in the world.
This was THE PERFECT place to rent exclusive - I could not be more happy about my choice. This was a treat for all of us and my guest could not praise the people, the service and the location and look and feel of Dar Fakir enough.
There are only two things one should be aware of when checking into a riad in the middle of the Medina - you cannot expect the shower/bathroom standards to be like in a modern hotel. Some rooms had low water pressure in the showers. Also the traditional and beautiful decor of the rooms do not provide to much light - so the rooms can come across as a little dark when trying to put on makeup or find a misplaced clothing item :) No big deals just put your expectations at the right level - if you want modern big hotel chain standard to not choose this beautiful, traditional, extraordinary, well situated Riad Dar Fakir with the BEST SERVICE and BEST STAFF in Marrakesh!
