We had a wonderful time at the Riad Dar Anika. They were thoughtful and greeted us with lovely homecoming when we arrived as well as sat with us to arrange any events we were interested in. Better still they thoughtfully answered my unending questions about the area. Our only suggestion is they add variety to the restaurant menu (both for breakfast and dinner). The staff were outstanding..very thoughtful and friendly. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

I had the good fortune of experiencing what I consider a trip to the past by staying at this Riad. This is where to go if you fantasize about staying in a far off land in an old world style glamorous, romantic and intimate hotel. It is located on the edge of the medina in the old Jewish quarter where you feel like you will run into Indiana Jones. A hotel that caters to your every whim. The food is exquisite 5 star quality, The rooms make you feel like you are back in time with old world glamour. The staff is dedicated to ensuring that your stay is 100% memorable and will go all out to provide for your every need. If they don't have something you desire then rest assured that they will go out and find it for you. Don't waste your time going anywhere else. Trust me me, you will leave there with a lifetime of fond memories.

Our family went for a wonderful five day trip with our two teenage boys. We had a brilliant time. Are well. Enjoyed the fabulous weather. And the staff were fabulous. Full of trip ideas and booked everything we wanted from visiting masseuses to nail appointments and swimming pool access at nearby hotels.

It had been a long drive from Fes to Marrakech, and when we arrived at the Riad Dar Anika, I was tired and grumpy. It was hot, and the Riad itself did not compare to the grandeur of the Riad in Fes. It didn’t help when we walked the medina, because when compared with the quiet calm of Fes, the medina of Marrakech was dusty and dirty, and one was assaulted by the diesel and gas fumes of the motorbikes that seemed more of a presence than the busy crowds. There was the constant worry that you would be run down by them on the narrow streets. Our room turned out to be small and cramped, as all the rooms were full. That night, I told my wife that I was prepared to give it a two out of five stars despite the thorough briefing about “the what to do and not do” in Marrakech when we first arrived. We were to stay four nights, and I did not have high expectations.
But gradually, almost imperceptibly, we were thoroughly seduced by all that is the Riad Dar Anika. A Riad is a home. Its outer walls are unassuming, but inside it is inviting and protective and a sanctuary. Riad Dar Anika represents the best of that tradition. In retrospect, it began with that very first briefing when we were asked what was of interest to us, and we were then presented with options. We were guided as to how to negotiate with the vendors, how much to pay taxis, what areas to avoid, and where not to eat. We left that briefing wishing that we had been given that introduction when we first came to Morocco a week before. We were moved to the number 1 room when it became available. Recommendations were spot on.
Every member of the staff attended to our every need. We were asked not to tip them and that leaving a tip at the end was at our discretion and not expected. It allowed us to enjoy the interaction with them rather than struggle with the barrier of a monetary interaction. Complimentary pastries and fruits were always available. Staff would escort us down the street to hail a taxi. When I asked for a paper clip to pop out a SIM card for my phone, the manager actually produced one on the spot that was already bent. He said that he carried them with him because the guests sometimes requested it. When one young staffer was asked about how he liked working there, he said that he enjoyed it very much and that the manager was like a father to him. On the terrace, one staff member brought extra peanuts rather than the usual mixed nuts because he noted that my wife preferred them. And at breakfast, crêpes and eggs were brought without request after noting our preference. At the end, when we left for the airport, the owner and manager and staff said goodbye, and we were given a carrying bag of fruit and sandwiches with a customs form that was already filled out for the both of us. The attention to detail, the smiles, the caring about our well-being, were ever present. Abu is one of the owners, and it is his warmth and caring that cascades down to the staff. And just as Dar Anika gave a sense of being a guest of a family, I too felt that I had developed a sense of family in that I sincerely invited him to see us if he ever came to San Francisco so that we could host him as well. We felt that the Riad Dar Anika was a home away from home.

Where to start ? If you have already read many of the other reviews, you get the idea. The entire staff is very friendly, service oriented, with the sole intent to make your stay as easy and enjoyable as possible. If you have thought about something out loud, it likely has already been put into action for you to just enjoy. You will no doubt appreciate many of the special touches they have planned for your stay.

Do take advantage of everything Dar Anika has to offer, including a visit to their Sister property Riad Kaiss just a short walk away. It is all exceptionally well done. Abu & Antonio have fine tuned the experience you will have staying with them in Marrakesh, wether it be for a few days or a longer stay.

Our only regret was not having more time in this wonderful city. We will definitely return.

Many thanks <3
