“Fantactic”
Reviewed 15 April 2009

I have just returned from marrakech, my first visit there and it will not be my last as I picked the most adorable riad dar charkia that made my experience one to remember. The hose Lisa & Michael were so accomodating. The style of the riad was truely memorable. Also the staff made me feel like a royal, something I have never experenced on a short break. If you go to Marrakech you must stay at the Dar Charika.

Myself and my friend have just returned from a week in Morrocco. We had only booked the riad for 4 nights and were going to head into the desert for the other 3. Dar Charkia was so wonderful and welcoming that we choose to stay for a further 3 nights. Lisa and Michael pass by several times a day and are incredibly helpful. Their recommendations and local knowledge is amazing. The weather was fantastic the week we were there so we were able to make the most of the beautiful roof terrace. We loved the drumming in the square at night but also the variation of going to the more modern part of town for a different experience again. This Riad is very serene and calm and I would recommend anyone to try it for themselves.

Hi, just a quick rave review for the Dar Charkia riad in Marrakech... Our experience was lovely. The riad has incredible style, and is really a little oasis in the heart of the chaos of the city. What really made this experience unique was the great advice that Lisa gave us upon arrival, including everything from tips to a great spa experience to how much to pay for taxis to where to find clean restrooms in the middle of the city. The food and service here was wonderful, and I would highly recommend the Dar Charkia to you all!!

Dar Charkia is a very attractive and welcoming riad with exceptionally helpful staff - nothing is too much trouble. We were 3 girls travelling together and it was the perfect haven to relax with a G&T after a busy day exploring Morocco.
Lisa, who runs the riad, is charming and her great advice about places to go was invaluable - we felt we really made the most of our few days in Marrakech.
The hospitality in Dar Charkia is second to none - and the food some of the best we had!
Many many thanks.....Lindy, Daisy and Yvonne
PS. The Atlas mountains are great to visit but would avoid lunch at Kasbah Tamadot!

Our hosts Lisa and Michael have received us as if we were at home, and made us feel immediatly comfortable in busy Marrakech. They gave us great tips to visit the town for our first time, and told us how to do a good bargain.
We really have enjoyed our stay, having a lot of fun (and not too much sleep) and also enjoyed the sweetness of the staff and the great food !
We will certainly come back soon and chose this rhiad again.

After reading great reviews on tripadvisor we booked Dar Charkia for 5 nights. We were not dissappointed ... from the second you walk through the door you know your stay @ Dar Charkia is going to be wonderful. It is a very peaceful & romantic retreat from the outside world. Our room opened out onto the pool where you can enjoy breakfast. Lisa, Michael & all the staff were very friendly & made you feel @ home. They gave us some great recommendations for restaurants, guides, shops, barbers & spas which Lisa booked for us before we arrived leaving us with no hassels & just time to relax & enjoy. We would highly recommend the Dar Charkia & will certainly return again.

We were made to feel as if Dar Charkia was our home. Lisa, Michael, Abdu and the staff were warm and helpful in planning days and outings. The Dar was relaxed and comfortable. The breakfasts were outstanding and could be taken either on the rooftop overlooking the medina, in your room or in the courtyard. Mint tea was served whenever we requested it. The rooms were decorated very tastefully in Moroccan style. An outstanding Riad!!!!
