“marvelous stay in Marrakech”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2010

We had a unforgetable stay in Riad Dar One in the stunning beating heart of Marrakech. This ideal located Riad, did us feel at home from the very first moment at our arrival. The host and his staff gave us a very warm welcome and super service. Breakfast on the roof terrace when you want, flexible service and very nice decorated and clean rooms. The typical style with a modern touch. all the comfort you need, just as home...

What a fantastic establishment. The service was more than excellent. The staff are hospitable, cheerful, helpful, informative and attentive. The patron is available everyday and is more than happy to assist and make your stay more enjoyable.

Unfortunately our visit was in July where temps. reached the mid 40s. This means less outdoor time and more in-door time (mostly in the Riad) which leads to my point:

I think that better in-house entertainment is worth while especially during the summer months. So, If you're planning your travels any time soon bring your own entertainment with you.

Other than that Dar One exceeded my expectations.

Dar One is a santuary of peace and luxury in the middle of the loud and vibrant city of Marrakech. Situated in the midst of the hub-bub of the small and maze-like alleys of the centre of Marrakech, Dar One is a well protected santuary of understated luxury and elegance that only the French can achieve with real pannache.
My sister had booked the entire Riad for a special birthday to be celebrated with a mixture of family and friends, her choice could not have been better. Marrakech never fails to amaze with its difference and it's unexpected friendliness and ease of being for Europeans. Dar One was the icing and gold dust on a rich and succulent cake. The welcome which felt real and sincere, the information, personal and forthcoming without request was subtle and not patronising.
If you choose to stay do not leave without ordering at least one meal cooked in the Riad. I have never tasted food quite like it ,the flavours were extrordinary, real Morrocan cooking not to be missed under any circumstances.
The rooms were all comfortable and stunning with a mix of French and African decor, the roof top open to the heat of the sun and the lower floor cool and subdued from the heat by the rose petal fragrant waters of the plunge pool hewn into the rock. quite stunning
We will go again and we will go either back to Dar One or maybe to Dar White which we believe is the next project of Jean our host who made a very special occasion truly wonderful and unforgetable.

Our trip to Marrakech was for the birthday celebration of my very best friend, and gave us the opportunity for a fascinating but brief glimpse into the bustling, colourful and chaotic world that is old Marrakech. Dar One was the perfect base, especially when we worked out the straight road into the souks! We loved the plunge pool, the perfect way to cool off after a hot day shopping, and the staff could never do quite enough for you .

A memorable trip and a wonderful experience at Dar One.

I hired this riad for exclusive use for a birthday celebration. I cannot fault anything, from the booking arrangements and correspondence to the welcome and sumptuous rooms. The style and attention to detail are fabulous, both rich and funky - Morocco meets French chic. The roof terrace was the perfect place to lounge and listen to the sounds of the city and the reception area on the ground floor was a cool and tranquil place to relax from the heat and dip your feet, or take a plunge in the plunge pool.

One of the highlights was the meal we had cooked for us here. All my guests said it rated as one of the best meals ever, full of subtle spicy flavours. You must have at least one meal here. Forget Jamie Oliver in Morocco,the food here will blow you away! The friendly and knowledgeable advice given by Jean, the owner was a real plus. Nothing was too much trouble for him or his staff. All were both friendly and professional and obviously proud of what they have achieved with this riad.

The location is very central for the Place Jamaa al Fna and the souks. The riad is located in a labyrinth of terracotta homes teeming with family life. This is perfectly placed to experience the colours, smells and noises of this fascinating city. The riad is secure, but there is no issue with safety in this city.

The service here is much more personalised than in a hotel. Breakfast is served at your leisure and staff are there day and night to serve drinks and help you have a truely memorable holiday.

I can't thank Jean and his staff enough and will never forget my stay here.

Beautiful, stylish, and peaceful! And the staff is amazing! I came to Marrakech with friends for my birthday and Jean and the staff were so helpful with setting up dinner & spa reservations, a cooking class for us, fabulous breakfasts and cocktails on the roof. Every detail in the place is gorgeous - the rooms are well appointed, with beautiful bath products, fluffy towels and even fresh flowers! Loved it and I hope to return to the magic of Marrakech and the Riad Dar One.

had a fantastic stay at this riad..could not fault the staff service and friendliness. The riad is very stylish and cool. We stayed in Dune which was nice with a huge bathroom..the only awkwardness was the hand held shower but if you like having baths in hotels.. this is the room for you. The surrounding area is very traditional within the medina and can seem a little difficult to negotiate but its easy after a trip out and back! Very peaceful place within the craziness of the medina and I'd recommend for sure!
