A charming hotel, off the beaten track but close to all amenities. Amazing view of the sea, fantastic roof top terrace with a delicious breakfast, extremely friendly and helpful staff. Thank you for an enjoyable stay

Having a room with an ocean view was fabulous! Dar Al Bahar is situated at the tip of the medina with an amazing view out to sea, and of the medina behind the ramparts. I could watch the fishermen heading out in the morning and evening. The rooftop terrace was also situated perfectly, and on a warm day it was... More

... you have a room with a sea view. A rocky shoreline at low tide and waves crashing right under your window at high (the double glazing helps to reduce the noise). I guess the rooms on the other side look out at the wall opposite on a narrow alley. The reception area has a wow factor to it but... More

My room was beautiful, with an amazing view on the ocean, very clean and comfortable. The location in the medina is great. Breakfast is excellent, and the staff is very pleasant. This is a very good hotel if you are looking for a peaceful place, and not for luxury or trendiness. The only caveat is that the common area where... More

This hotel is located in the medina, next to the see, but nevertheless rooms are peaceful thanks to sounproof windows... Breakfast can be taken on the roof with a very nice view to the see and the city. Our guests were very kind and thoughtful.

Pleasant stay, accommodating staff, attractive lobby, decent rooms. Easy walk to just about everywhere. I would give it a 3.5 if I could. Had a massage and Turkish bath - they had to use a regular hotel room for the massage, but had a room for Turkish bath... I expected spa type accommodations but all in all a good stay.

Hi there! My and my girlfriend spend two nights at Dar Al Bahar and the first impression when we arrived was "wow". We booked our stay in "Malika" room which has a window in the sleeping room facing to the sea. There is nothing between this window and the sea besides some seagulls flying around. First thing I did was... More

Directly on the sea in the center of medina, yet very peacefull. Unfortunately the rooms are rather dark and not good lamps. Also the walls around the roof terrasse are so hight, that you have to stand up to see the wonderfull ocean right below you. But on the other hand it's rather cheap.

There's nothing like slowly falling asleep with the sound of seagulls calling waves breaking over the reefs. That's what you get at Dar Al Bahar. Nice location along the ramparts of Essaouira, Dar Al Bahar is a quaint restaurant with extremely friendly staff and a traditional feeling. Clean rooms, good breakfast, free wifi, and many restaurants and sightseeing opportunities within... More

A nice Dar! Clean presentable and accommodating hosts. Great views with sound of sea waves rocking you off to sleep. Breakfast basic but fine. Could do with a few more options such as toast or eggs. Prepare to park car outside of medina and walk to the Dar as it is at the far end best to park in port... More
