“Truly lovely”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2014

We are absolutely delighted we stayed at Riad Dar Dialkoum for our 6 night stay in Marrakesh. We were greeted with sweet mint tea and Muriel spent a long while welcoming us and discussing directions, recommendations and hints for during our stay. These recommendations were perfect and the location of the Riad meant we could venture everywhere in a short distance - the new town, all areas of the medina, the henna cafe, spas and the gardens.

We were in touch with Muriel and Laurent before we arrived and arranged dinner at the Riad for our first evening - we then chose to eat there another two times during our stay because the food was that good! We would highly recommend the caramelized tomatoes in honey and sesame - it is amazing! We also loved the tajine of lamb with apricots and almonds. We should also mention that as my girlfriend is gluten intolerant the staff made gluten free pancakes every morning for her which was fantastic.

Water, fruits and mint tea are available on demand but the one thing we wish we had had more of is time with Laurent and Muriel - they are such genuinely nice and interesting people it was a pleasure to speak with them and learn of their love of Morocco and the care they have for their staff.

We were upgraded to a suite for no extra cost - it was decorated beautifully and arranged with rose petals all over when we arrived. We would highly recommend this Riad to anyone wishing to visit Marrakesh - on the days we didn't wish to venture out into the chaos we were able to relax on the roof terrace and in the plunge pool - what more could we have asked for!

Room Tip: Leila Suite is beautiful. Eat dinner on the roof terrace its divine.

We spent four days at Riad Dar Dialkoum and had a fantastic stay. Laurent was extremely helpful and spent around 20minutes with us when we first arrived explaining the city and all the things there were to see and do. We took his advice and went on a horse and cart ride and saw lots of the city it was great. The free taxi from the airport made finding the hotel and checking in really easy and stress free - much appreciated in the stiffling heat! I can not recommend this hotel enough, Laurent and his staff really go out of their way to make sure you enjoy your stay and the Riad itself is beautiful and so peaceful inside, a real gettaway from the hustle and bustle of the city.

We stayed 4 nights at the Riad for a short break. The Riad is a taste of paradise. Once behind the solid Wooden door it is a place of tranquillity. There are so many areas to relax, we loved the roof top.

On arrival we were greeted by Muriel who gave us an introduction to Marrakech, taxi costs, places to visit, directions etc, we were also given Moroccan tea and pastries.

Muriel and Laurent are very passionate and this is reflected in the service they offer. The staff are amazing. A Must place to stay.

Thanks for your kindness, you will be seeing us again. Inshallah.

This could not have been better. The Riad itself is a perfect oasis of calm in the middle of the madness that is the Marrakech medina. Absolutely beautiful rooms and common areas and a level of service that cannot be bettered. From advice on how to get around in the city and what to see to arranging a trip to the Atlas, the airport pick-up, the plentiful and complimentary fruit, water, coffee and Moroccan tea and exceptional attention before we even came - including even calling us one evening in immediate response to an email question we had!

Location can't, from my point of view, be better. Close to one of the main gates and in a definitely "local" part of the Medina but still only some 10 or 15 minutes walk from the main tourist areas. The welcome meal they offer is very well worth trying as well.

All in all for value, atmosphere and experience and if you want the real Marrakech experience this cannot be beaten.

We have just returned from 5 days at the Riad Dar Dailkoum. What a beautiful place. As soon as you entered through the big wooden door, everything was peaceful, so different from the business of Marrakech. The owners, Laurent and Muriel, couldn't have been more helpful, from the price to pay for taxis/caleches to how not to get lost - which of course we did ! Laurent organised our trip to the Atlas Mountains, which was a great success. The driver spoke excellent English and took us where WE wanted to go not to any carpet shops ! The Riad itself was great - from the rooms to the living areas. We even made use of the pool and sat on the roof terrace. Breakfast sustained us for the day and there was always tea/coffee/orange juice/water and fruit available. We can't praise the riad and staff enough - we shall certainly tell our friends. Thank you for making our visit so memorable. Jan and Brian Robertson.

Room Tip: All rooms are excellent but the one near the breakfast area could be noisy first thing in the mornin...

Absolutely amazingly beautiful Riad. It was so nice and quiet to stay there you almost dint want to out. Muriel and Laurent were wonderful hosts and took excellent care of us, gave us loads of tips and made us feel like home. Rooms are big, spacious and beautiful. Highly recommend this Riad to everyone, super nice place :)

We have just come back from Marrakech, and our Riad was wonderful, a definite oasis from the hustle and bustle of the town. It's in a great location to get to everywhere and also very easy to locate (we saw lots of people lost in the streets unable to find their Riad).
Muriel & Laurent gave us great advice when we arrived about places to visit and what to expect from the locals.
If you want to stay in the town and have an authentic stay in a Riad, then this is the perfect way. The rooms, we stayed in Malika, is the perfect size with a little terrace. Very clean & comfortable. The free taxi to the Riad from the airport is also a bonus, makes the start of the holiday - I imagine we would be lost trying to find our way otherwise.

Room Tip: Malika - it's upstairs at the back & has a small terrace area outside
