Reviewed yesterday NEW

The Riad is perfect. Well located, excellent multi-lingual staff who helped us with everything: driver, airport pick up, touring, restaurants. The breakfast was wonderful with Moroccan specialties each day and the views from the roof top terrace are great. The hotel is perfectly located within walking distance to the Kasbah, medina and many great restaurants.

We had just flown 15 hours plus taken a Train from Casablanca to Rabat, so we were tired. We were given great directions to find the Riad, the only problem I did not read which gate to start at. Plenty of signs directing you if you start at the correct gate. Smail greeted us at the door and took our...

I enjoyed my stay at Dar El Kebira!! It was tricky to find but there are large signs showing the way. The riad was gorgeous and I enjoyed my room. I arrived very late after a delayed flight and the gentleman quickly checked me in and showed me to my room. Breakfast was on the roof top and more than...

A beautiful common area and lovely rooftop. Staff were very friendly and food was delicious. Harissa soup for dinner was particularly good! Room was comfortable, not as spectacular as some others we have stayed in (but we had been quite spoiled up until that point!) Location was excellent- close to the sea, all major monuments and the old town.

I stayed at this Riad for two nights with two of my friends. The staff were extremely helpful as I needed to email them with a couple of queries before we arrived and they always responded promptly with helpful information. Finding the Riad was easy - we had difficulties with finding our accommodation in Marrakech so were concerned - as...

We park outside the medina and wind our way on foot through the covered alleys to our lodging for the night - the Dar El Kabira Riad. We walk through an unassuming wooden door and into a courtyard, 3 stories tall, covered at the top with a pyramid-shaped glass ceiling. It is astoundingly beautiful, filled with light, as well as...

Very friendly & helpful staff. Nice rooftop breakfast. Excellent position in the Medina next to the souk. The Necropolis of Chellah complete with nesting storks is worth a visit only a short blue taxi ride away. Entrance fee 10Drm.

Not only an authentic and beautiful setting, the staff, especially the manager is devoted to the well being of her guests.

One night stay in Medina area. Charming staff in hotel which seems like it could have been a residence. No elevator. Small room but common areas and rooftop sitting area are really nice. Close walk to waterfront, sook, and Oudayas casbah.
