We have just returned from a week at Riad Dar One to celebrate my 40th birthday on a journey just for us as a couple. We have come across the Riad via Tripadvisor, and there is hardly anything to add to the many excellent reviews for Jean Peres and his team at the Riad. The only thing I would recommend for other travellers: We booked through EBookers who had a good deal for flight + riad, but they messed up in communication with the Riad, so the room we had chosen had already been booked. In the future (and as many others have said, there will be no question where to return to when we come back to Marrakech --- although Jean's own soon to open second Riad may be a tempting competition, for sure!) I would only book through the Riad's website and emailing Jean himself, not through an unreliable agency. In fact, it was only when I contacted the Riad directly for arranging the airport transfer (recommended, well worth the money) that we established the missed communication with them, and Jean had other stories of travellers turning up with bookings he had never heard of. The fact how Jean dealt with this hiccup of Ebookers, upgrading us to Scirocco room with its own roof terrace for the part of the stay our chosen room, the Dune with its smashing bathroom, wasn't available, speaks for the excellent and personal service. For thosen who haven't been there yet, imagine it a bit like that hotel suite from Sex and the City-movie Part II where the girls have their own private butler 24 hours a day - here, you got the suite without the rest of the hotel, and the same level of discrete, superb service from Abdel and Khalid, and the supporting ladies, all of whom were brilliant, including organizing a birthday cake for me!
