Dar Zaman Team
Hassan is our guest manager and has worked at Dar Zaman since 2008. He comes from a Berber family, originally from Ouarzazate, three hours south of Marrakech. He’s one of nine children! Hassan is sweet, kind and always cheerful, a delight to have around and he takes your comfort and well-being very seriously. Hassan speaks four languages – Berber, Arabic, French and English.
Karima is our housekeeper and chef and has worked at Dar Zaman since 2012. She comes from Marrakech, and is a mother of two school-age children and one infant. Karima makes the most delicious Moroccan dishes, the secrets to which she will happily share with you in our cooking classes.
Yassine is our night watchman and the younger brother of Hassan. Currently studying Physics at university, Yassine speaks Berber, Arabic, French and he’s learning English!
And then there is me, Peter, the English owner of Marrakech Riad Dar Zaman. I manage Riad Dar Zaman so there is a very good chance we’ll meet in Marrakech. I’ve lived in Marrakech since 2007 and until now am still under the spell of the blue sky, sunshine, delicious food and medieval charm of this magical city. We will do our best to make sure you get the most out of your stay in Marrakech with lots of insider tips and information on what to see and where to go.
