“Central and intimate, this riad is an oasis of modernist Parisian-Moroccan chic and excellent value”
The 5 rooms, all with ensuite shower bathrooms, have Arabic women’s names, and are beautifully decorated with a mix of contemporary style and Moroccan artistry.
Nahema, one of the largest, is delicately hued in pale beige, grey and silver, with big silver lamps that throw patterned light across the walls. This room has twin beds.
In the same category, Samsara has a grey and terracotta floor, and silver and grey walls. There’s an Art Deco mirror, a large bed with a big grey upholstered headboard, and an orange and tan rug. Shalimar has similarly restrained and harmonious design, with inlaid folding chairs.
Slightly smaller Chamade has a central queensize bed, with the shower and sink tucked behind a dividing wall, plus a Berber rug and a little desk. Bagatelle is the smallest room, and the cheapest. It has a lovely white Berber rug and silver pouf, embroidered cushions, and black bedside tables that set off the gleaming white linen.
Rooms have no TVs or DVD players, but you won't miss them with so much to explore outside. Free WiFi is available.
Breakfast is served on the roof terrace, and is a sumptuous array of pastries, coffee, freshly squeezed juice, yoghurt and fresh fruit. Light meals such as salads are available throughout the day.
If you require dinner, you should order it in the morning and you'll later feast on typical dishes such as Moroccan salads, couscous, pastilla and tagine. It’s a fixed menu that will vary according to the season (you can let them know any preferences in advance). You eat on the roof terrace, or in the salon in colder weather, surrounded by candles and roses; Moroccan wine (including excellent local rosé or red) and beer are also served.
If you don’t want to dine in, there are lots of restaurants within walking distance, and staff can give recommendations and book for you. La Mamounia and The Tangia both get great feedback.
Riad Dar More is not an ideal place to go with small children - the peace and quiet of the place, plus the exquisitely pale furnishings and floor candles, would contribute to making your visit feel rather stressful. Older children, however, would be fine, and children of all ages are allowed. Babysitting and extra beds can be arranged.
