After seven visits to the riad, I still believe this Dar Darma has a special atmosphere. The lovely staff which remains the same since my 1st visit in 2009, gives me a sense of comfort, homecoming and loyalty. Maria, the riad's chef, shares her cooking secrets in amazing Moroccan cuisine classes (everytime I learn some new recipe within the classic...

This was our first time to visit Marakesh. And to stay right in the medina was a full on experience! We were completely out of our comfort zone to begin with but once we got our barings it was cool! Riad Dar Darma, was all that we could have hoped for and a little bit more, we have never stayed...

My friend booked us in and while I've happily stayed in other mid-range Riads before and been perfectly content, I'm afraid I'm now ruined and will never be able to go back to those. The Dar Darma is beautifully decorated and fitted out, a mix of modern design and antiques populate the spacious rooms. The double baths in the bathroom...

We have just returned from 5 nights in Marrakesh staying at the beautiful Dar Darma. From the moment we arrived the staff were so welcoming - Maria helped with our luggage and Said helped us so many times finding amazing places for us to eat. Unfortunately the wifi does not work in the rooms and it is a little erratic...

This is a cool and luxurious place to stay in a dazzling city. Most interesting things to do/see are very nearby And the staff is excellent! A real treat to book and start your holiday at this place. Havent tried the cooking class but i would love to come back for that and stroll around the city again.

The interiors in this stunning riad have real wow factor - I wasn't disappointed. The red and blue rooms especially are straight out of Elle decor. Staff were lovely and helpful and the riad itself was a quiet and peaceful cocoon. Lovely breakfast on the roof terrace. Only unfortunate thing I feel I should make people aware of is the...

Dear Amethyst456 Thank you for your review! Glad to know that you loved our interiors and look forward to have you back in the future!

I stayed in both the red and blue rooms post a long backpacking trip throughout Morocco. It was a stay/an experience highly needed as it was very peaceful, quiet and serene compared to the week of intense non-stop traveling we did.

This is a nice hotel with great service but in a not so nice area. Staff would not allow us to walk alone even during daytime. That means even if you want to go out for any meals you need to be walked with their staff escort. We had 2 bedroom blue apartment and it was very dark, aircondition in...

We stayed in the red apartment and were dazzled by it. A suite of rooms big enough for the children to play hide and seek in, all richly decorated and furnished.
