I stayed at the Riad Dar Darma in February of this past winter. I've wanted to write a review for them for some time but work and life got the better of me. I have travelled to Morocco (I'm half moroccan myself) many times and this is easily on of the best Riads I have stayed in. The house is...

Dar Darma is oozing charm and tranquility. As you enter in off the hectic streets of the Medina, you are instantly transported into a cool, quiet and calm sanctuary from which you just left. The halls and communal areas are dimly lit that some may find stuffy, we found to be the perfect dichotomy from the intense sensory overload that...

We arrived at the airport taxi stand and nobody new this place so it took the taxi driver a good 15' to find out. We found out the Riad is close the the "Maison de la photographie" which every body knows! So in case you need just let them take you there and is just 5m from there. B&B with...

The Dar Darma Riad is truly stunning! No expense was spared on decor, but it was very very dark, you can barely see and enjoy the decor, forget putting on make up, in all of the rooms(we stayed in 3 different rooms by the end of our stay), and freezing too. It was so cold that on our first night...

Dear Beagy Thank you for your comment. We are glad to know that your liked the decor.

Albeit the hotel being beautiful and impressively well decorated, the stay was appalling and very disappointing. We were a family of 6 members travelling and we found it a rather uncomfortable stay. First of all, I'd like to mention the hotel temperature was always very low and the heater was broken in one of the rooms. Being a very high...

Dear Casilda, Thank you for your review. We are terribly sorry to learn that Dar Darma did not match your expectations. We normally like soft lightning but conscious of that we are still able to fit extra lamps in suite if required. Right now we provide bath amenities made by local argan oil but can consider your suggestion. We will...

In writing my review, I'm having a tough time picking my favorite thing about Dar Darma. If traveling to Marrakech and you've done your homework, you know that you have to stay in a riyad. It's one of those "only in Morocco" experiences. We chose Dar Darma, and from the moment we walked in the front door we were in...

We stayed with a large birthday group for a good four days or so. The accommodations were unlike anything I've seen in my life. Incredibly gorgeous and ornate. Staggeringly beautiful rooms with ornate ceramics, beds, tables, fountains - everything was ornate and finely detailed but not in a gaudy way. It was like some kind of magical opulent maze. The...
