For the first time ever my wife and I returned to a hotel. We've stayed in lots of places and often said "that was nice - we should go back" - but until now we've always ended up trying a new destination. However, when looking for some winter sun this February we decided to head back to Dar Charkia, where we had stayed in February 2008.
As before, everything was great. Smooth transfer with Mustapha, their very safe and reliable driver, big room (the Douiria suite), great breakfast. As ever, the hospitality from Lisa and Michael was exceptional - great suggestions for restaurants, well organised day trip to the Atlas, annotated map with their latest finds in the city. We noticed that almost all of the staff were the same as a year ago, which is a great indication of the relationship that Lisa and Michael have with them. Lisa also very kindly offered to arrange for a cushion-maker who had produced a number of cushions for the Riad to come in to discuss making some cushions for us - which she did, within the space of three days.
All in all, we had a wonderful time as before. For anyone wanting to visit Marrakech and get the best from it, I can't recommend Dar Charkia, Lisa and Michael enough.
