“Very, very good - just what we wanted”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 November 2010

I stayed at Dar Zouar last month with my three teenage daughters and we had an excellent stay. It complimented a memorable week's visit to Marrakech - our first time in Morocco. My daughters quickly adapted to the bustle of being in the old town and we did a lot in one week both in Marrakech and on several day trips. The owner Thierry was very helpful and I hope we can go back soon for another stay - my wife missed the trip because of work and she is very envious of all the things we did!

Stepping inside the door in this small charming riad, is like stepping into another world. An oasis in the bustling metropolis when peace descends completely and there is room for contemplation. We were received with myntethe of the nice owner Thierry, who briefly informed us about practical issues and proposals for activity ..
We stayed in room with fireplace down in the courtyard and were very happy with this. There were the necessities we needed. The staff at the Riad is very nice and service minded. Riad has a lovely terrace on the top, where there is also shadow option.
Breakfast is nice with lovely fresh squeezed orange juice.
The only disadvantage of this riad is that it can be hard to find, both day and evening, and that the taxi can not drive right up to the Riad.
General: Beware of hustlers in the medina who call themselves wizards, and will show you the way and subsequently charged them head 200 MAD (18-20 €) by you or more for the inconvenience. Furthermore, I assume that single women may feel insecure by going into the medina at night.

This was the second time that I have visited Dar Zouar, this time with my partner. The quality of the service (from the delightful Amina and the other staff) is still of the highest, discreet but efficient. The guesthouse has now gained a reassuring “maturity” and feels like a family home that one loves to visit again and again to find that familiar atmosphere of relaxation and quiet cocooning.
Since my last visit Dar Zouar has acquired two new rooms which are equally attractive and comfortable.
Absolutely no hesitation in recommending this brilliant Marrakech oasis.

We stayed at Dar Zouar for 5 nights from 10 Sept 2010 and were made to feel so welcome that we will come back next year and take the wole house with friends. Thierry and his team, Mohamed, Ahmed and Amina are fantastic and nothing ever seems to be too much trouble for them. Thanks to Mohamed for deliveringus to restaurants two night on the trot - not sure we would have found out way there but we did make it back!

I have been back in the UK for less than a week and I am missing both Morocco and Dar Zouar - go there!!

We are a group of six friends travelling from Oporto. We went to marrakesh last month and we couldnt imagine a better place to stay! Forget all the bad reviews about this place! The house is amazing, very unique and with the mood and the details you search on a trip like this, as almost anyone does when travellling to marrakesh. The staff is always trying to make you feel at home. Thierry was the perfect host for a trully enjoyable stay. A word must be said to Ahmed and Mohamed, who are available to your demands 24h a day. The place is not that difficult to find once you know the area and its a safe area. Dont bother with dangerous tips about the hotel zone. We felt safer than we do sometimes in our country. We have only one 3 words to say about the Dar Zouar... Go, Go, Go, you will love it. Rui, Luisa, Bruno, Henrique, Sophie and Carina

I visited Marrakech for the first time with seven of my friends to celebrate a "big" birthday. The Riad was totally charming and authentic, the friendly welcome together with the service we received from Thierry and his staff was fabulous. The Dar Zouar Riad is a peaceful haven within the buzzing Medina and can thoroughly recommend taking advantage of the very reasonably priced taxi to pick you up from the airport on arrival. The Riad is situated on the edge of the Medina and we found that finding your way backwards and forwards was half of the fun...being 8 women on our own was not a problem at any time. Our rooms were bright, clean and very large and would really recommend that you experience the wonderful cuisine of an evening meal cooked by Thierry's staff. My friends and I will certainly return again soon as three nights was not enough time to experience everything Marrakech has to offer. Also I would like to thank the trip advisor staff who answered all of our pre trip questions promptly and ensured that our holiday experience was perfect.

great stay in this very charming and cosy riad, which offers peace and charm. Thierry, the owner, and his staff are so welcoming. The days start with the magical touch of the singing of the birds in the patio, the smile of the people who serve you the breakfast and do end up with divine diners and local tea. Quite a dream! I will definitely come back in this litle paradise one day! Inch allah! :)
