We stayed at Dar Chakia for a long weekend at the end of September. Dar Chakia is very well located, about 10 mins easy walk from near the medina and the same from the main square. Located down a quiet, classic little Marrakesh lane, this riad is a lovely, peaceful place. It is absolutely spotless, and tastefully decorated with all the rooms arranged around a beautiful old courtyard with lots of comfy seating and a plunge pool. Our room was very comfy, with aircon which was helpful even this late in the summer. Breakfast each day is delicious.
The owners, Michael and Lisa, are very personable and friendly without being over the top, and gave us a whole load of really useful information on places to shop, visit and eat. They even sorted out restaurant reservations for us before we turned up, at places that book up early. They, and all the staff, couldn't do enough for us and made us feel very welcome.
All in all, Dar Chakia is a great spot that I would thoroughly recommend. The place itself is very pleasant, but the thing that makes it really work is the effort put in by the owners and staff.
