We stayed in Dar One 13th-17th December.
When we arrived in Marrakech we were picked up at the airport, which Dar One arranged.
Upon arrival we were greeted at the door by Jean Peres, the owner. He made us feel very welcome. The staff are courteous and polite and made us feel at home straight away. We had a few hours to relax then met with Jean Peres who gave us a detailed overview of places of interest and recommendations on were to visit.
The Riad itself it stunning. Tastefully decorated, with each room having its own character. We stayed in Saint Ex, which was a lovely spacious room with high ceilings, a lovely big bed, a large bathroom with a huge shower. The Riad is very clean and comfortable.
Taking breakfast on the terrace was superb. Even for December we had sunshine everyday with temperatures topping 23c.
The Riad is a minute or so walk from Bahia Palace and around a 6-8 minute walk to Jeema El Fna square.
Although Marrakech is a crazy city, it is still an amazing place to visit, from the hustle and bustle of the Jeema El Fna square to the souks and further afield with tours to the Atlas mountains, which were breathtaking.
We chose to eat at various places to experience Marrakech, but one place did stand out that Jean Peres recommended, Le Comptoir, which was just outside the Medina. The is a trendy upmarket restaurant and bar, but still very Moroccan in decor. When we arrived they played live music and we also had belly dancers. The food is a mixture of classic such as Tagines, to modern Mediteranean.
Overall we had a great stay at Dar one. Jean Peres is a lovely host, helpful and friendly. The Riad is located well to everything. Although we had a continental breakfast it was slightly different everyday which was a nice touch. All the staff are always on hand to answer any questions or just to order some of there lovely mint tea. The lounge area with the log fire was lovely just to chill in the evenings. We shall certainly be visiting again!!
