Dar El Kébira

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Noel and the rest of the staff were very friendly and helpful. The Riad is very authentic Moroccan and not terribly modern. The team treated us like family. The only caution is concerning the taxi service organized by the Riad - the fare is very expensive compared to what you can get on your own. Otherwise a great place.

A very beautiful property which is very nicely decorated. Staff including everyone is extremely friendly and helpful. First night was in a room on two levels. Lovely room but rather tight on space in the room and toilet. Very kindly upgraded next day to a larger room which was much more comfortable. Breakfast on the roof top was very homely and nice although the broken dishes could certainly do with replacement. No hesitation in recommending although for anyone staying the first time in a riad, please ensure you know how it compares with a regular hotel!

Friendly and helpful staff, clean and comfortable rooms. Dinner and breakfast were traditional and delicious. We only had a short overnight stay but it was a very nice one. The Riad was also in a great location.

Pleasant stay, very friendly and helpful staff, very good food. Pricey, but worth the money. As a business traveller it offered me the services I needed but remained a homey and rustic place. A gym is close by and other services such as internet are adequate.

This was our first stop in Morocco; what a wonderful introduction to the hospitality of the people of Morocco. A beautiful hotel, traditional decor, very comfortable rooms. We had a choice of rooms, chose a room upstairs for privacy and quiet. Dinner in the Riad our first night was delicious. Breakfast was plentiful and delicious. The staff (manager Nawal Rajabi; porters/waiters Youness and Hamid) were very helpful and attentive. Only minor complaint was wifi connection was inconsistent; Nawal admitted she was having trouble with the router.

My party of three stayed here for just one night, yet it was by far the most memorable venue we stayed at during our week in Morocco! Great location, clean rooms, good food, and amazing staff. I would absolutely stay here again! Big shout-out to Rawal for making our stay feel like home!

I have been in Riad Dar El Kebira and I was impressed with the quality of service and welcome we received by the staff. The food was very tasty and the beauty of the original decoration was just outstanding. I highly recommend it.

Very nice staff and great hotel. Nice and traditional, great experience overall. Good food, clean rooms, and phenomenal roof. The breakfast and dinner were inexpensive and very good. They provide water and fruit for the room as well.

We received a lovely welcome at this beautifully maintained period Riad. The architecture and interior design were a joy to admire and the service was first class. We ate a traditional Moroccan dinner in the comfortable area and we served breakfast on the terrace with great views of the city.

What a lovely place - it oozes charm. The service was outstanding - I found that speaking French was a big advantage with the staff. We had dinner in the riad and the food was excellent. We ordered quite a variety and we were happy with all choices. Recommend having a tea or breakfast on the rooftop terrace. Great perspective on the city. Front desk staff also very accommodating. Room for 3 was very nice - a little tight but that was actually part of its charm! So much nicer staying in abroad like this vs a big hotel.
