Out of Africa ( south)

A travel blog entry by jkjohnson

... tourists who have brushed up against her iridescent skin, trampled on her red earth, marvelled at the sharp pinprick points of light in her night sky. Africa is layered and varied and constantly shifting. She is impossible to capture in picture or word. A place that has to be seen, heard, and smelled; requiring patience and astute observation before she is ready to reveal. Africa is a craggy stone ...

Cape Town: Feel the rhythm

A travel blog entry by jkjohnson

... Under the expansive food tent, the Saturday crowd devours everything from barbecued springbok paninis to kingclip sushi rolls. Craft brewers pull pints of cold lager and local vintners pour glasses Sauvignon blanc. The solo musician loops djembe beats below the primal drone of the dijereedoo. The crowd bounces to the rhythm. We venture south to the Cape of Good Hope located at the most south westerly point of Africa. Here the basal shale mountains ...

Marrakech, Morocco Day 3

... today and followed an itinerary from the guide book. First stop was Tombeaux Saadiens which was closed yesterday! This is the royal tombs were the sultan Ahmed el Mansour and his family lays, it was just 10dh to enter which is about 80p. Although it was early it was very busy. There were dozens of men offering to give guided tours for a small charge but we declined and read the information in the guide book instead. The tombs weren't huge, with high ...

... either ignoring them or by saying nothing more then hello, in French, they would call after me some more, ask me if I’m racist, or just start cussing at me, saying **** you man, you ******* *****.

It wasn’t the best feeling in the world, waking up and exploring a beautiful place, trying to savor each moment and enjoy it, but instead encountering merchants who want my attention almost as much as they want my money. While walking the narrow streets, it was also a chore ...

... with both genuine and nervous laughter. With hindsight, Tasha and I realise that we were being completely mugged off and, ultimately, violated, and should have, at least, immediately run away, or you know, thrown a punch or two. It all started when we innocently walked into a standard shop on the skirts of the Souqs, where we are shown a picture of Colin Firth in the exact same shop, then the Berber men insist on dressing us as Berber women "Oh yes, Berber women, Berber women, ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Dar El Kanoun Marrakech

    Himmlischer Frieden und persönlicher Service

    from

    Ich habe mir auf TripAdvisor wahllos verschiedenste Hotels angesehen, in denen ich im Laufe der Jahre schon gewesen bin und stieß auf das Dar El Kanoun. Dort war ich schon ein paarmal (im Mai 2005 zu einer Hochzeit und dann im Dezember 2006 zu Weihnachten). Ich habe den vorherigen Kommentaren nichts hinzuzufügen. Wir scheinen allesamt die gleiche Erfahrung gehabt zu haben, es ist wie ein zweites Zuhause mit unglaublich netten und zugänglichen Eigentümern.

    Der beste Beweis dafür ist, dass ich hier ohne Wagen anderhalb Jahre später noch einmal wiederkam (das Hotel liegt außerhalb des Stadtzentrums) und die Tatasche, dass ich normalerwiese immer gerne andere Hotels probiere, das spricht wirklich für sich. Ein tolles Hotel.

    Exceeded All Expectations

    from

    Staying at the Dar El Kanoun was the best decision we could have made. Everything was perfect. The accomodations were clean and comfortable. The food was absolutely delicious. (You should definitely have dinner here.) But, most of all, Omar and his team happily take care of your every need. You should definitely take advantage of the taxi service arranged by Omar. We saved so much time and money.

    Omar is the greatest host EVER

    from

    We arrived in Marrakesh without reservations and Dar El Kanoun happened to have the first night available. The food was good, the riad is luxurious, and best of all Omar is possibly the nicest man in all of Morocco. He arranged for us to stay in an apartment in his apartment building, hooked us up with a rental car, and even arranged a taxi to the airport 3 days after we left Dar El Kanoun.

    Like many riads its a bit out of town (10 minute walk to the edge of the medina, and significantly longer to Djemaa el Fna), but if you don't mind that, this place is great.

    Omar est le meilleur hôte DU MONDE

    from

    Nous sommes arrivés à Marrakech sans réservations et il se trouve que le Dar le Kanoun était le premier endroit à avoir une chambre disponible.

    La nourriture était bonne, le Riad est luxueux, et surtout, Omar est probablement l'homme le plus gentil du Maroc. Il a fait en sorte que nous dormions dans le même bâtiment que lui, nous a mis en contact avec un service de voitures de location, et nous a même commandé un taxi pour l'aéroport 3 jours après que nous soyons partis de Dar El Kanoun.

    Comme beaucoup de Riads c'est un peu en dehors de la ville (à 10 minutes de marche de l'orée de la Médina, et Djemaa et Fna est beaucoup plus loin), mais si ça ne vous pose pas de problème, cet endroit est génial.

    Doesant get better ........

    from

    Cant say much more than the post below..........the guest house is refreshingly away from the town centre but Omar arranges cabs to take and collect you..just over £3 to the centre........no need to haggle and no chance of being ripped off..........the food here is superb.........would definetly stay here again.....Tim Pearse.

    Besser geht's nicht

    from

    Ich habe den anderen Bewertungen nicht viel hinzuzufügen ... das Gasthaus ist schön vom Stadtzentrum entfernt aber Omar besorgt einem Taxen, die einen überall absetzen und auch wieder abholen. Bis zum Zentrum kostet das Taxi um die 5 Euro. So braucht man um den Preis nicht zu feilschen und man wird auch nicht über's Ohr gehauen. Das Essen hier ist ausgezeichnet. Ich würde hier auf jeden Fall wieder einkehren.

    Home away from home

    from

    The Riad is modern, comfortable and clean. It has the feeling of staying at a friend's house (a very clean and tidy friend). Omar and Geraldine are lovely people. Omar gave excellent recomendations for places to eat and directions for getting around (great place to stay if you are renting a car). Geraldine was always very friendly. We felt very comfortable leaving our daughter in the house when we went out - we rarely do this (she is only 2).

    Fantastic Riad...

    from

    Stayed at the Dar El Kanoun riad in the quiet suburbs of Marrakech where wonderful hosts, Omar and Geraldine, were ever present to look after my family's needs. Lovely villa, pretty garden and pool, wonderful food, and Omar and his staff on hand to help. Great value for money and Omar was there for advice on restaurants, places to visit and even transportation, including the pick-up from the airport. Taking 3 children was initially a concern (you know what I mean!), but Dar El Kanoun suited them perfectly, from the pool, to the food, and even the English DVDs; baby-sitting was a breeze and allowed my wife and I to enjoy a couple of fantastic restaurants by ourselves. Would certainly go back and won't hesitate to recommend Dar El Kanoun. Greta for families and given only 4 rooms, couples in need of quiet! A top pick!

    A real gem

    from

    We have just returend from 12 days in Morroco travelling around 5 of which were spent at the Dar El Kanoun. This place is a real haven from the hustle and bustle of Marrakech. A bit out of the centre but well worth finding.

    Une adresse à recommander.

    from

    J'ai trouvé cette adresse un peu par hasard, mon seul critère étant de ne pas séjourner dans un hôtel classique!

    Nous avons été conquis dès le départ.

    On nous ont réservé un accueil chaleureux avec un service discret et attentionné tout au long du séjour, et toute l'équipe sur place se pliait en quatre pour devancer la moindre de nos envie ou nous renseigner sur les choses à faire.

    La cuisine est fantastique (à la carte), les chambres très confortables et joliment décorées et le lieu très calme.

    Une adresse à recommander et un bon rapport qualité prix si l'on recherche un hébergement et un service vraiment de qualité.
