We spent just two nights here at the end of our Moroccan holiday but it was the perfect finale to an fantastic 10 days in a wonderful country and an amazing culture.
Dar Anika is in a great position with an easy walk to the main square and souks and just a stones-throw from Bahia Palace and El Badi Palace (both are must-see places). The riad itself is immaculate from top to bottom. From the moment you step through the front door it is a beautiful little oasis with its reception and central courtyard. Our room was spotless and really comfortably furnished with a nice firm four-poster bed (nice crisp linen) and then on the roof level is a dining area and also some sun lounges etc for chilling after a dip in the pool.
Food: The breakfasts we were served on the roof were great quality and abundant. A mixture of western (coffee, juice & scrambled eggs) and local (fruit, soup & pastries) fare. They set us up well for our days exploring round Marakesh. However the highlight was on our last night when we ate on the roof terrace. A Moroccan feast was bought to us course by course and the beef tajine was AWESOME! All washed down with a nice bottle of Moroccan red.
Service: As good as the Riad itself is and as great as the food was, its the service that gets this place five stars from me. It is very clear from the time you arrive that nothing is too much trouble for these guys. They really wanted us to have a perfect stay in their Riad and in Marrakech itself. They arranged taxi's, dinners out (& dinners in), a tour guide, airport transfer for us. No problems. They are thoughtful and very helpful without being in-your-face at all.
Bottom line: This is not a budget destination but you get value for your money. Perfect location, great accommodation, great food & amazing service.
Many Thanks Guys! :-)
PS: Dont forget to feed the pet turtles on the rooftop at breakfast!
