Dar Charkia is exactly the kind of place you want to stay when coming to Marrakech for the first time (or any time, for that matter). It can be a confusing and bewildering city, but Lisa, Michael and the rest of their staff make it very easy to have a great time there. Once you reserve a room, they send over a very helpful list of recommendations, from the best restaurants to activities around the area. I found this very helpful in planning my honeymoon. And once you get to the riad the staff will go out of there way to make reservations for dinner, spa trips, or anything else.
Lisa's name also carries some weight around the souk. You mention her name to prefered vendors and the price will drop significantly. We were very happy with the recommendations she gave for purchasing a rug. I didn't feel comfortable shopping their without her recommendations, as there are a lot of people selling junk in Marrakech.
The riad itself is in a great location. Being there is very relaxing, with the rooms being large and well appointed. Lisa has also done a great job decorating the place. One night we canceled our dinner plans because we were just enjoying hanging out in the courtyard so much,
My wife and I felt truly at home in the surroundings and would definitely come back again. Dar Charkia is an incredibly great value for your money.
