Naddie goes out of her way to answer all questions and give information. DarEl Paco is easy to find from the Supratours bus station, a 10 minute walk, is clean, in a great location ( with the exception of being very close to the loud speaker for the call to prayer) but they are holy words!

The hotel was really nice with welcome mint tea on arrival. Our room was clean with a great en-suite. The roof terrace is really handy if you fancy a spot of sunbathing or some place to sit and relax. The staff were super helpful, trying to call me when I was really late, then going out of their way to... More

I visited here 3 years ago and when I was returning to Essaouira with 6 other friends, I really wanted to return here. I am so glad I did. We were the only guests in the place and were welcomed warmly and told that the house was ours and we could use the kitchen etc as we wanted. Everyone was... More

Generally dirty - room not cleaned properly - there were signs of the previous occupants. I didn't even want to handle the door key, the tag was so greasy and dirty and the sheets and towels were 'tired' to say the least. The lighting in the ensuite shower-room was so dim, I can't say whether to not it was clean... More

Beautifully designed and well-located, Dar El Paco is an excellent choice for a short stay in Essaouira for a couple or a single traveller. Our room (which was called Sahara) was in a yellow/orange/red theme and was really pleasant to stay into. The breakfast was really good (the fresh orange juice!) and Annie, the supervisor of the riad, was a... More

Really lovely and cozy little riad in the centre of town. The location is simply excellent, easy walking distance to anywhere in town. Furthermore, the rooms are each uniquely furnished, reflecting a Moroccan theme. Each room and corresponding bathroom is cozy, comfortable and sufficiently equipped. Furthermore, Annie the hostess is truly a wonderful person who takes special care of her... More

As a young couple on a budget, we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. This riad exceeded our expectations in every way. Staff are lovely, giving spot on recommendations for places to eat/things to see and do - must try Chez Driss! We stayed in the Sahara room which was very inviting, cosy and clean. Overall, this...

Lovely little riad. Perfect location, good breakfast and superb hosting from Kitchu. Nothing was too much trouble and good recommendations for hammams. Would definitely recommend and stay again. Favourite riad in Morocco!

For the money you can't go wrong with this riad. Set right in the heart of the medina but quiet enough for a decent nights sleep. Rooms are smallish but cleaned regularly with decent facilities. You really get the feel of a Moroccan family home here and are made to feel very welcome indeed. Kitchou was the perfect host and... More
