The Dar Darma Riad is truly stunning! No expense was spared on decor, but it was very very dark, you can barely see and enjoy the decor, forget putting on make up, in all of the rooms(we stayed in 3 different rooms by the end of our stay), and freezing too. It was so cold that on our first night...

Albeit the hotel being beautiful and impressively well decorated, the stay was appalling and very disappointing. We were a family of 6 members travelling and we found it a rather uncomfortable stay. First of all, I'd like to mention the hotel temperature was always very low and the heater was broken in one of the rooms. Being a very high...

In writing my review, I'm having a tough time picking my favorite thing about Dar Darma. If traveling to Marrakech and you've done your homework, you know that you have to stay in a riyad. It's one of those "only in Morocco" experiences. We chose Dar Darma, and from the moment we walked in the front door we were in...

Dear jfg2003 Thank you very much for this heartfelt review. It was a real pleasure to have you here. Next time you choose Marrakech to be your city for a few days, be sure, here at Dar Darma we will be your family again!

We stayed with a large birthday group for a good four days or so. The accommodations were unlike anything I've seen in my life. Incredibly gorgeous and ornate. Staggeringly beautiful rooms with ornate ceramics, beds, tables, fountains - everything was ornate and finely detailed but not in a gaudy way. It was like some kind of magical opulent maze. The...

I was lucky enough to stay in Dar Darma with 13 friends, old and new. We had the privilege of renting the entire space, but I'm not sure that made a bit a of difference in terms of the experience. We all arrived in fits and spurts, and when it was my turn I was warmly welcomed by the staff...

This place is just incredible! We spent only one night but enough to get the ambiance. The architecture is elegant, the fireplace room the perfect place for drinks some mint tea. The best to discover is definitely the Hammam. Very authentic. Thanks Said and the staff for your kindness

To start off, the riad itself is a beautifully designed mansion with a lot of "potential." My partner and I arrived in Marrakech after a day of travel with much excitement and anticipation. The driver that picked us up from the airport (arranged by Dar Darma) was one of the rudest people we've ever met (and we are from NYC)....
