Some of our pals stayed in Dar Charkia earlier in the year so we knew we would like it, and Wow it was great! Marrakech is a full-on, crazy busy shopping, haggling heaven...if you didn't have an oasis to retreat to I think you'd go loopy. Behind the unassuming walls and wooded door of the riyadh lies a serene and... More

This was our first trip to Marrakech and it certainly won't be the last! The Dar Charkia was a beautiful and relaxing place to stay just a few minutes walk from the bustling Souks and some fabulous bars and restaurants. We were lucky enough to be upgraded, our room was spacious, spotlessly clean and had the best decor of any... More

Before our stay i had been avidly reading the reviews on trip advisor, and was getting slightly worried that Dar Charkia would not live up to all the fantastic reviews. However the Riad, owners and staff were every bit as wonderful as the reviews suggested. The evening meal we had on the first night was fantastic and the breakfasts were... More

Hidden away in the bustling medina, we arrived to the magnificent sanctuary of Dar Charkia to a warm welcome from the English speaking owners. An excellent dinner was enjoyed in the riad the first night and we also thoroughly enjoyed the breakfasts served on the roof terrace in luxouriuos Moroccan style. We had the benefit of filling the whole riad... More

Myself and my partner stayed at Dar Charkia for four nights mid-September. The riad is beautiful, tastefully decorated, spotlessly clean, and very comfortable - the various seating areas made it a lovely place to relax after a day sightseeing. Lisa and Michael were very welcoming; Lisa in particular was very helpful, always willing to take time to give recommendations and... More

Had a fantastic stay at the Dar Charkia. The staff were so attentive to your every need. The owners were so welcoming and helpful, annotating a map to such a degree I'm amazed the pen had any ink left. Tips on haggling, restaurants, souks and ways to pass the day were very welcome and allowed us to make the most... More

Lisa and Michael were great hosts. They helped us plan everything in advance. Their recommendations for sights to visit and dining olaces were most appreciated. The staff eager to please.
