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

We booked through booking.com which certainly helps in Morocco. Staff was great, helpful and accommodating. View from certain rooms is great, but you do pay for it. Terrace has a stunning view as well and breakfast is basic but very satisfying. Overall, if you care for a view and sound of sea to put you to sleep and wake you... More

As a solo traveller, I stayed in the room on the ground floor for two nights and while the room was small, it was neat and clean and suited me just fine. The light in the bathroom could have been brighter, so shaving was more of a challenge, but hot water came on instantly, so I'll take that! Breakfasts are... More

We stayed at Dar Al Bahar for two nights in April. It's a lovely little Dar, perfectly set location off the main hustle and bustle, beautiful terrace with views overlooking the sea. The star were warm and friendly, breakfast nice. The rooms were each unique and individually decorated, clean and comfortable. Would highly recommend Dar Al Bahar.

We stayed here five nights. Our room was small, but inexpensive, and we had a magnificent view over the Atlantic. The staff was friendly. Breakfast was served on the roof terrace, where we also spent some afternoon siestas. Very centrally located.

I really liked the location and sea views. The staff were very friendly. Especially Suad who always had a huge welcoming smile and a contagious laugh. She always took an interest in how our day went. Najaht was lovely and welcoming too. We were two women traveling alone so being in a riad with all women made us feel like... More

the location just by the sea, above the old walls of Essouira, the room was basic, clean & nice, to be able to sleep and hear the ocean waves! ouch it was a bless, we stayed only one night, and we really wished to stay more. Outstanding view from the rooftop, take a jacket, bottle of wine and go up... More
