Arriving after midnight on a Thursday evening we were welcomed by a charming member of staff, Abdu, who even at such a late hour was happy to show us a tour and open up the roof terrace. The room was superb, and following a great sleep we awoke to a breafast that more than set us up for the day...

I stayed at Riad Dar Charkia with my two teenage sons, we chose it from the bewildering choice available because Lisa (The owner along with michael) responded to our questions quickly and efficiently, something many other Riads don't. We were not disappointed. Riad Dar Charkia is clean, cosy and beautifully equipped, and the owners do all they can to help...

My wife, Daughter and I flow to Morocco on "Easy Jet" from Madrid and the flight was very smooth. Lisa arranged for a a chauffeur to wait for us at the airport with a sign with our name on it; the cost for this service is 150 dirhams payable directly to the driver. We were able to exchange money right...

Dear Hesham, We have noted your comment about the bathroom door and are always receptive to constructive criticism - we have already attached a lovely embroidered curtain there so that when there are clients other than couples using the room there is total privacy in the bathroom. My staff and I love cooking and part of the hospitality of Dar...

We stayed at Dar Charkia for 3 nights in the Khmissa Suite. As the previous reviewers mentioned, the riad is fantastic. Our room was beautifully decorated, bed was comfortable and best of all there was the huge bathroom that had bright lighting. Wi-fi downstairs is great - the fastest we experienced in Morocco. Lisa and the staff at Dar Charkia...

Two minutes walk from the local taxi rank (and not down really dark alleys like another riad we visited!) this riad is gorgeous. I felt as if I’d walked into a Vogue fashion shoot, everything from the piles of embroidered cushions on your beds, to the handmade cinnamon soap in the glorious shower, were absolute luxury. Every corner has beautiful...

My husband and I stayed at Dar Charkia for 2 nights and had a wonderful time. We were looked after by the unintrusive yet ever present staff beautifully. They cannot do enough to help you and prepare the most fantastic and (unusually for Marrakech) healthy breakfast-with fresh fruit salad, delicious omelet and (of course) freshly squeezed orange juice amongst the...

My brother had stayed at the Dar Charkia last June, and when I asked him to recommend a place to visit for a short break as I really needed a break. He told me, no question, to go the the Dar Charkia, as this place was more than a hotel...... Until we arrived, I had no idea what he meant....

We stayed at Dar Charkia for 3 nights for a long weekend, and it was perfect. I had extensive email interactions with Lisa before arriving to arrange various trips and restaurant bookings: her guidance and assistance impressed us all (we were a group of 4). It all made for a perfect winter break.

This is a really lovely place to stay- it absolutely made the trip! The service from Lisa and Michael is so helpful and personalised. Everyone is so friendly and helpful. The whole riad is beautiful- so much thought has gone into its design and each room has its own unique atmosphere. The bathrooms are especially lush

On a recent holiday to Morocco I spent a couple of nights in Marrakech in Dar Charkia. I fell in love with Marrakech, and with Dar Chakia. I've travelled pretty extensively, and I normally feel life is too short to go to the same place twice, however I'm really looking forward to a holiday with the girls in Dar Charkia...
