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 Marrakech is famous for. What brightens the riad is the wonderful staff, and their constant desire to ensure you have a wonderful stay with them, as well as while you are in Marrakech in general. Maria, has a wonderful laugh and a glowing smile that never fades, even while she walked us through maps of the Medina and the winding routes to get to one of our many destinations. Said, like Maria, is always smiling and is always on the move to fetch you a refreshing orange juice on the rooftop garden as the sun falls over the city, or offering to walk you to your evening meal through the initially confusing streets. Isham, was always available with a story, or personal insight into life in Morocco, that gave you a feeling of welcome and ease as you wandered the riad or relaxed while enjoying breakfast in the fresh morning air.
While some travelers may desire flat screen TV's in their room, a bedside phone, or room service at their beck and call... this is not the place for you. Dar Darma is purely a stunningly beautiful and tranquil riad in the heart of an amazing city. The decor was charming and clean, the staff was warm and friendly and always working to improve our stay. We found it to be wonderfully romantic and would highly recommend it if you seek a unique riad while in Marrakech.
