“We thank you with all our hearts, Mokhtar. The hospitality that you have shown us has been wonderful. It has made our stay in Marrakech very memorable. The food was excellent, adding to our Moroccan experience. Your medina is a treasure, your people even more of a treasure! Our advice to future guests is to eat here in Dar Basyma! Modern Moroccan design in the home is exceptional! We wish we could find the stores to replicate this at home! And we really appreciated the maps and books!”

"We absolutely loved our stay at Dar Basyma.
The staff accommodated our every need, they were like family members, made us feel at home very welcoming and the hospitality they showed was super.
The day trips Mokhtar arranged for us were exactly what we wanted and within our price range. We visited some lovely historical places close by and enjoyed exploring the local surroundings with a phenomenal guide Abdullah—he was so proud of his country and heritage and that shone through at all times. Our stay at Dar Basyma was fantastic, all the facilities were as stated and the home was very well maintained with a housekeeper on site who ensured everything was cleaned to perfection.
We would highly recommend your home and would love to return.
Thank you for having us and for making our first stay in Morocco a very pleasant one!" —Tanzila, UK
“Such a lovely stay and such lovely people! Thanks for teaching us about the country. And thanks for the instruction on making delicious tajine!”

“As we write this note, just having finished our last dinner on the rooftop of this WONDERFUL riad, we are so grateful for our stay. Mokhtar and his team were extremely welcoming and ensured we always had everything we needed during our stay. The pride they have for their country and this riad were contagious. We are walking away with amazing memories, great pictures, tons of trinkets and new friendships. Thank you for making our trip better than we could have ever expected and unforgettable. We look forward to our return visit! All the best and see you soon!"

“Dar Basyma was the highlight of our trip! This riad is beautifully decorated; a perfect getaway. We spent one night in this wonderful gem and it couldn’t have felt more like home. We love it so much. We spent most of our time at Dar Basyma. In the evening we took a lovely stroll through the souk (amazing artisanal finds there!) and into Jmaa el Fnaa.
Despite our short stay here, the staff definitely made us feel like family. Kudos, Jane, on all you have done with this place. Gorgeous Moroccan details, luxurious tidbits, and a welcoming space! I wouldn’t mind living here! :-) And we loved the books!"

“I just wanted to say thanks to you and Mokhtar. We had an absolutely amazing experience in Morocco—it was too short. We were truly touched by the love, sincerity, and friendliness shown by everyone,
"We can't thank you enough for your kind hospitality
that you have shown us.
We can’t wait to come back and we will be
