“Wonderful Riad with great access and roof top terrace”
Wow we have just returned from a 10 day stay at Dar Doughri, a very nice spacious accommodation, with very easy 5 minute walk to the Medina and around 10 minute walk to the lovely beach. We loved the Roof terrace for having meals and enjoying the evening sun. The breakfast and dinner was provided at a reasonable price by Karima on request and was wonderful and plentiful. Well worth considering if staying. Karima was excellent as she was there cleaning, cooking and washing which was a bonus to our holiday. We loved the big bath for our girls at bath time and with so many bathrooms there was no waiting in the mornings.The rooms were all clean and spacious with nice comfortable beds. This area was very safe and secure. Around the beach there is a lot of work being done to regenerate the area and the promenade which once done will really enhance the beach area. We had a very enjoyable time going through all the various nooks in the Medina and it is definitely worth it, just remember to barter. It was great meeting Fouad who was available anytime and very helpful with any enquires, even though he must have many identical brothers as we kept bumping into him in the Medina!! The owner Fiona was very helpful and was only an email or Whatsapp away if anything was needed. This was a lovely place to stay, all the family members really enjoyed their stay, the only downside is if you don't like stairs then you will love them by the end of your holiday and have legs of steel!! Thank you Fiona x
Owner's reply: It is lovely to hear you had a super holiday with all your family and that Fouad and Karima looked after you all. Walking up and down the stairs definately help to burn off the calories from Karima"s delicious tagines! Thank you for choosing to stay at Dar Doughri.
We had a great time and we were so well looked after. The breakfasts were amazing! The house was very clean. We just loved it and would return in the future. It was also very good value.
