From the moment we walked through the lovely entrance we knew we had chosen well. Dar Sholmes was the Moroccan experience we had hoped for in every way. The walk through the neighborhood and alleys after being picked up at the airport and driven as far as we could be was exactly as exciting as we had read about and looked forward to. The riad was romantic in decor, the mint tea ready for our arrival and the staff as helpful as we needed. The location was perfect for our exploring nature and gave us a feeling of being away from the tourists but close enough to walk to the tourist attractions. Sara, our hostess, even walked with us to be sure we were oriented to our location. After two full days of sight seeing locally and enjoying wonderful breakfasts and dinners on the rooftop of the riad I fell and needed medical attention. Luc,the owner of the riad took immediate control of the situation, got us to a first rate clinic where I received excellent care for my broken arm. We are so grateful to both the staff at the hospital and the riad and especially Luc for treating us like family and attending to my every need. Even before my fall we felt the attention we received above expectation. After two days of rest and great care from everyone at Dar Sholmes and personal attention from Luc, Sara and Suede we were able to continue our exploration of Morocco by train and hired car and driver. We can not say thank you enough to Luc and staff and even the other guests for the wonderful care we received and for the memories we created through our stay at Dar Sholmes. Thank you Luc, Sara and Suede for all you did!! Stayed as a couple, March 7th, 2014.
