“A pefect retreat'”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2010

My husband and I had a four day break in Marrakesh and found the holiday an 'interesting experience'. The guys in the Dar could not have been more helpful and attentive. The accommodation was so peaceful and cool after spending time in the square and soukes, it became our haven to relax away from the hustle and bustle. They showed us round the Riad, across the 'road' (also owned by the same person) and wanted to converse to practice their english. We would recommend this place to anyone thinking of visiting Marrakesh. Excellent, a perfect retreat.

This is a super Riad in the heart of the city. It is a tranquil haven amidst the frenetic bustle of Marrakech!
Staff are very attentive and speak some foreign languages.
We were fortunate to be able to choose our rooms and chose Cannelle and Curry. Both were en-suite, and beautifully decorated throughout. Cannelle looks out over the serene courtyard which has a small pool and varied options of places to sit. The courtyard is full of plants - bananas in particular which are fruiting - but not ready to eat when we were there!
Thre's a resident tortoise too, who loves tomatoes!
If you wish dinner you have to book in the morning of the evening you wish it otherwise you have to go out and scout around but there's plenty of choice. Try to eat in small restaurants that the locals use - you will not be disappointed with the couscous!

Dar Soukaina has 3 houses. We stayed in 2 of the houses both beautiful and peaceful. We had issues with flight delay and staff went out of their way to help us; calling the airport etc.

We have enjoyed our stay in Marrakech but the hustle and bustle is not to be underestimated: therefore staying in a peaceful riad with friendly staff and fresh orange juice on demand was wonderful. It is amazing that just a couple of turns off a main street can result in such quiet. The roof terrace is nice to relax in and the huge quantity of bread rolls for breakfast are delicious; I particularly enjoyed seeing the sparrows come down to nibble the crumbs.

The riad is in a very good location. About 15 minutes walk from the main square. Lovely and cool after the bustle of the medina and the souk. Very helpful and friendly staff. Comfortable rooms and good breakfast.

One minor criticism is that we were asked on the last morning to pay in cash for our stay which we were unprepared for.

We would definitely recommend it to others and would return there ourselves. Jenny

After overcoming the initial challenge of locating Dar Soukaina after dark it became a home from home, a tranquil refuge from the frenetic activity of the Souks. Omar and his staff took good care of all our needs and gave good advice on places to eat. Breakfast in the riad was an excellent start to each day. The location is very good for exploring the souks to the north of the main square which itself is 15 minute walk (longer if you pause to barter) away. if you want meals other than breakfast then you must advise the staff in good time.

Dar Soukaina is very cozy. The service is good and the staff is very kind. However, not all the personnel speaks English. We had a lovely stay and got very nice help and advices when organizing our stay in the city. However, the Riad is quite small and there is a lack of privacy: it was not possible to close and lock the door of our room and since the riad is very small we could hear everything was going on inside the house.

Myself and 2 friends have just come back after 3 night say at Dar Soukaina. Everything was fabulous...friendly staff, lovely food ...breakfast and dinner (the best meal we had while we were there) and comfortable rooms. The staff were so helpful, making recommendations on trips etc to make our visit a truely memorable one! Lovely roof terraces & lounge area with open fire in Sophia (building across the alley from main building).......great venue for night in with a few drinks (you can bring your own in). If you are thinking of staying, the best rooms are Marjolnime & Guofle (spell check!) in the main the riad.
