In the district of Sidi Mimoune, a few steps from the Jemaa el-Fna Square, the luxurious Riad Darmina is, in itself, the epitome of refinement and traditional Morocco.
Decorated with a particular taste for details by its owner, the harmony of the colours of the furniture and the architecture offers a seductive setting to which a service of house staff of high quality is added.
Between the Royal Palace and the Gardens of Mamounia, its huge traditional patio gives way to a pool on the terrace, from which it is pleasant to admire the view of the Medina and the majestic Atlas Mountains and take a relaxing dip. And, to relax more, you will have the right to incredible massages in the room dedicated to this art.

The staff was very nice and accommodating. The food was a treat and better then in restaurants. The rooms and the whole riad was always perfectly clean. The entire stay was a dream.

Communication with Villanovo always works perfectly. Special Thanks to Bettina and Simo

Très agréable, bien décoré, personnels très attentionnés, excellent cuisine, la piscine sur le toit etc...
Un seul point: l'effet écho dans la cour intérieur de l'appel à la prière de 4h du matin qui malgré des boules Quies réveille de façon certaine

Riad splendide, décoré avec raffinement. Les chambres sont grandes et les salles de bains magnifiques.superbe adresse! Le personnel est aux petits soins pour les hôtes , d’une gentillesse incroyable. Tout ici est fait pour vous faire plaisir ! Et surtout surtout Meryem la cuisinière véritable top chef qui nous a concocté les meilleurs plats de la cuisine marocaine. Un vrai délice! D’ailleurs nous y avons pris tous nos repas! Les petits déjeuners étaient incroyables, jus frais et différents tous les jours, crêpes marocaines, cake maison orange ou citron, brioches, etc etc! La plus belle adresse! Nous reviendrons certainement! Merci aussi à rezlan pour son œil attentif au besoin de tous!

Son confort et sa situation géographique permettant de visiter la ville à pied
Sa décoration raffinée
Son roof top

De la part de Villanovo, nous avons aimé l’attention aux questions posées et la diligence des réponses
Sans être une critique l’éclairage dans les salles de bains

We really loved, loved, loved the ambiance of the riad. The home is beautifully and intentionally designed. We also loved the service staff! Very soulful human beings, very friendly, welcoming, and trustworthy. We also loved the interactions with Bettina of Villanovo, she was speedy in her responses and a great communicator.
We disliked that there was a broken communication chain with the driver we had booked. It was a bit stressful to converse with Bettina about the drivers arrival/pickup vs. being in touch directly. And even when we requested the number of the driver to "text him" when we're done at a museum, we reached a woman at a service desk, and couldn't converse with the driver directly, which lead to frustration on his end and ours. ALso on our departure day, the luggage pick-up didn't arrive, so there was time lost for us waiting for them, and the driver waiting for us :)

While the food was good, that was prepared by the staff for us, we felt the ambiance of a dinner experience was not as high-end/visually appealing as the rest of the villa would suggest. The same for breakfast. We felt the breakfast could use some variety conversation in advance, what's wished for breakfast. (We LOVED the fresh juices, fruit and home-made pancakes though!)

Lastly, we felt a bit uncomfortable having to pay in cash upon check out, when the rest was paid via transfers/creditcards. Problem was solved immediately (By paying half in cash) but you could feel the frustration on staff side.
