As per other reviews - Jean and his team were incredible in every way. Friendly and consummately professional - they made our stay in the height of Marrakech's summer as pleasurable as it could be.
Situated right next to he Palais Bahia, Dar One oozes style and luxury. We stayed in the Mirage room and were blown away by the chic modern decor. Jean certainly has an eye for detail with rows of French Art coffee table books scattered along the bookshelf of our room as well as a large vase of fresh roses.
Every morning, we were served breakfast anywhere we wanted in the Riad. This consisted of some toasted crusty bread and a daily specialty ie. Moroccan crepes etc.
Jean was present every day and was supremely helpful - organising us a spa session at Les Bains de Marrakech, a dinner reservation at Dar Yacout and an amazing cooking lesson/market tour with a local Berber woman who took us to her village (a lot less touristy than some of the other operators).
When my fiance was struck down with some Moroccan belly, Abdul even offered to brew us some Tissane tea at breakfast. He even organised some alterations for my fiance and paid for this upfront with his own money.
Jean's dogs which visited and lazed around the Riad were absolutely adorable and so well-behaved! Free Wi-Fi everywhere was also a bonus.
We had an incredible time at Dar One and are already planning our next trip back.
Don't look anywhere else in Marrakech.
