Score from 55 reviews Excellent
Everything was wonderful. Said was a fabulous host. He was very accommodating to a friend and her child who came to visit a couple of times, and went out of his way to be helpful and literally to guide us around. Nothing was too much trouble. The room was beautiful, the dinner we had one night on the rooftop was absolutely delicious and the place was tranquil, gorgeous and spotless.
Host - 'Said' Location Facilities Plunge pool Breakfast Big rooms
Patrick, the riad manager, was exceptionally friendly and helpful. He went above and beyond, was very welcoming, and made our stay delightful. The facilities are beautiful, clean, and aesthetically pleasing. The breakfast was also really delicious.
My only complaints are that the location is a bit tucked away, so more difficult at night if you're prone to getting lost (which is definitely likely in Marrakech). The wi-fi was also extremely spotty from our room on the first floor, but this wasn't a big issue as we just walked outside to the lounge area to use the internet.
Location:easy to find and reach. Despite the central position it is in a quiet area. Service: the manager was extremely helpful, friendly and professional. And he supported us with everything during our stay. Place:quiet, relaxing, elegant, peaceful. Facilities: wifi, delicious food, nice little hamman, terrace with view and swimming pool.
We liked everything about Dar Akal. We wouldn't change a thing! The staff, especially Said, were so helpful and accomodating.
We loved everything about Dar Akal -- the outstanding service, the gorgeously restored riad, the location, the wonderful meals, the rooftop view, the hammam experience, a fantastic massage, excellent recommendations, insider tips - we could go on and on. Said and his team were top notch and we couldn't have asked for more!
Everything was perfect. Compliments to Said and his team.
Perfect place to stay for a short stay with friends or family. Great staff and in the heart of the Medina to get a real Riad experience
Our stay was absolutely amazing. Riad is well located within the medina, 5 min walk from souks, 10-15 min to Jemaa el-Fna. Decor was beautiful, very tasteful, airy feel, not too many bric-a-brac bits. Roof terrace with plunge pool also fab, lots of different areas to sit. Dar Akal is very clean and incredibly well run place. Said who speaks several languages was a fantastic host, nothing was a trouble for him!
Accommodation, food and service was 5 star. Great place
Everything, it is a beautiful Riad with an incredible host (Said) and amazing food. We would not stay anywhere else!
We received an excellent welcome introduction to the Riad - we particularly liked the map showing our whereabouts and used it on all our visits out. The room was fresh and clean - we had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. The staff and manager Siad were very polite, friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were delicious and always surprised us as something different came out on each of our mornings there!
The location is a bit far from the square (although we knew it was 10 mins away when we booked). It's not a total negative but it can feel a bit stressful getting too and from the Riad because of all the motorbikes, twists and turns. But hey, I guess that's half the fun of Marrakesh!
Said and his staff were very helpful and friendly. The hotel was a lovely quiet oasis of calm in a bustling mad area. It was a bit scary on arrival down so many narrow alleyways but we did get used to it - it was an adventure! We enjoyed two evening meals there as well.
A beautifully restored riad run by lovely helpful staff. A great base for seeing Marrakech and the surrounding countryside.
Dar Akal is a very lovely Riad. Wonderful staff! Said is the best host ever. With his advices you can't get lost in the Medina's alleys
Said is the best host ever. We loved Marakech. Dar Akal had everything to do with that! Thx again
the best reception I've ever had in my life! The manager/host was execelent. We feel the medina vibration due to the location.
The location was a little intimidating at first, then we have become accustomed.
Great staff, especially Said, a true host. Always concerned about the guests. I will be back to the riad in my next trip to Marrakech.
We liked everything. The warm welcome. The beautiful décor. The location in the heart of the medina which was close to must-see places like the Maison de la Photographie, the Musee de Marrakech, Medersa and of course the Jemaa El Fna. Excellent food and wonderful staff. A big thank you in particular to Said for his patience and help. His advice and local knowledge was terrific.
Dar Akal was amazing, serene and relaxing. The staff went the extra mile to ensure our stay was perfect. The riad is situation within the medina so can be difficult to find through the maze of alleyways but its all part of the morrocan experience.
Said is the best host serene & quiet riad in the middle of the old city. This beautiful gem feels like home. Perfect place to enjoy the busy city life and relax at the same time.
The medina is a labyrinth.
The host/caretaker, Sayyid, was gracious, kind, enthusiastic, understanding and very helpful. The riad was well maintained with its traditional Moroccan design. It had a serene and comfortable feel. There are luxurious features (hamman bath, pool, lounge) on rooftop and the ground floor to 'get away from the busy activities of the medina outside. I had a wonderful stay.
Staying at the center of the medina gives you the true experience of Marrakech. But the 'cost' of staying in the heart of the 'old city' is that Dar Akal can be a challenge to find or get back to. The medina is a labyrinth everywhere, especially at night where getting disoriented with which path take can be a burden.
This was the last riad at the end of my trip to Morocco and this was the best place that I had ever stayed in. I could honestly not ask for anything more. As soon as you enter its doors, you find yourself in an oasis of calm in the middle of the bustling city, the Riad is tastefully and beautifully decorated. The best thing for me was the staff. They really made my stay special, they really go the extra mile for you, their attention to details was very personable and truly made you feel at home. I will absolutely go back to Marrakech and only stay in Dar Akal. Book this riad for an unforgettable Marrakech experience.
It's a fantastic riad with everything you need. Said was a brilliant host who went out of his way to make our stay perfect. You couldn't ask for anything more.
