Reviewed 7 March 2011

We're a family of five with three teenagers. We spent the first two nights of our Moroccan vacation here in this peaceful hideaway. Omar helped us to plan the remaining four days of our trip, but did not push us to use his suggestions. In fact, he advised that we ask around and see if we could get better prices, encouraging us to enjoy negotiating as Moroccans do. Our kids say that the hearty, delicious breakfasts were their favorite part of the riad,. My husband and I especially liked the rooftop oasis. But honesty, don't try to find Dar Soukaina on your own! When we called from the nearby square, Fatima was there to meet us in no time, and staying in the maze-like medina was a huge part of the charm. Every staff member went of of his/her way to make us feel pampered and welcome. Thank you!

We stayed in Dar Soukaina for 5 nights and what an amazing 5 nights they were. Had it not been for our schedule, we would have spent our entire trip there; we truly felt at home. Rasheed, Abdel Reheem, Fatma, and Omar, the staff, were only an amazing add to our stay; not only did they raise the standards, but they also made us feel like part of one big warm family.

Difficult to find at first but that was our own fault because the staff did offer to met us outside the Medina, however our plane was delayed so we decided to have a go!

On arrival all was perfect. We were treated with every care and consideration throughout our stay. Rooms comfortable and interesting. Breakfast delicious and plentiful. Free drinks
(not alcohol) through out the day. Helpful information and impartial advice about trips/outings.

Staff kind, attentive and gentle. They became our Marrakech friends. Anyone who chooses to stay elsewhere is losing out in a big way.

Beautifully decorated, very clean, very friendly, attentive and helpful staff, good location - though hard to find the first time! - a haven of tranquility. Huge and tasty breakfast and mint tea, hot chocolate etc available all day and included in price. Fifteen mins walk to main square. Would definitely return here.

Well, this is not my first stay in this splendid boutique hotel in the medina of Marrakech and it is definitely not my last...
It was not easy for me to find it at the first time, but with a little help from a local I realized it was not far from where I was.
"WOW..." was my first reaction when I entered this unique riad. The place is simply amazing! you feel the special attention given to little details. All rooms are lovingly designed with elegance and good taste. The beds are comfortable, the bathroom is equipped with shining brass accessories. I personally just love the 'Poivre' room with its exotic ambience and design.
the place is blessed with the magnificent orange tree in the middle of the compound, where it is great to have breakfast by it or sit at night and look at the sky with the smell of citrus in the air.
The place is very clean and cozy. It is good value or money.
The crew is great, helpful and friendly. Every time I came back from my trips around the city I felt welcome... this is definitely my home in Marrakech..!
