The house was great. we were with a group of 5 people. The service with zakaria was great. She is a very kind lady who made delicious breakfast and dinner for us for a reasonable price. she does her job with love and we really loved her kindness and delicious food.(( really recommend to take the dinner+breakfast))
The rooms are all very clean and the airco works really well(( a must with the hot weather in marrakech))
The reservation went very well with philippe. He responds really fast and gives good information and useful tips. The location of the house was a little bit far from the square, u had to walk 10 minutes to a place to take a cab. We had some locals in our group so it was not a problem with the language, but it might be difficult if u dont speak french or arabic, to found the way. The transfer from the airport was also organized really well.
I recommend this place for groups and also families with childeren. Its a nice place to discover the true old city of marrakech with its traditional streets and houses. Thanksss for the great experience.

J’aime beaucoup Le Maroc et surtout les rapports humains avec les habitants de ce beau pays ou j'envisage de finir mes jours.
Même si mon professionnalisme et mon coté organisateur laisseraient croire que je suis du métier, vous avez bien affaire à un particulier qui loue sa maison et non à une agence.
Mes 8 années d’expérience dans le domaine de la location meublée à Marrakech de particulier à particulier font qu’aujourd’hui le succès de dar Essattatia et de dar al Mandar est incontestable.
Je souhaite partager avec vous un maximum d’informations pour que vous puissiez préparer votre voyage en toute quiétude et avoir le moins de surprise possible une fois arrivé sur place.
N’hésitez pas à me contacter je serai ravi de répondre en toute simplicité à vos demandes concernant l’organisation de votre voyage.
