One of, if not the most beautiful place that we stayed in in Morocco. Natty was very helpful and the breakfast was good while the room was exceptional The balcony is nice also while the Riad is very near the city centre

Paco is a great host and all the staff is nice and kind. The location is great, just 1 min from the heart of the Medina and 10 min walk from the beach. I found the room very neat and elegant, the absence of closet was not a problem for me. Bathroom was a little bit small but it's a... More

All in all a great place to stay. Very cheap, excellent service, central location and nice atmosphere. We enjoyed two nights in this Riad, and as a family of three, with a 1,5 year old boy, we couldn't be more happy.

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.

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.

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.
