Gareth did a fab job of arranging our transfer from our Riad in marrakesh the back to the hotel in marrakesh for a cost of 1000dh each way. It was all arranged by email before we left Britain and worked sweet as a nut! Thank you.!! The riad is beautiful and the staff are really friendly. Not a traditional riad... More

Stayed 4 days in essauriou for a sunshine break, Gareth was helpful and informative, the area was safe and weather amazing. There is much to enjoy here, a must if surfing, watersports, beach, fine food or riding is your thing. Fast taxis available from hotel, clean with air con, will definitely come back

We traveled to Morocco last December and we found this incredible Riad in the Medina of Essauira. A gorgeous place where design meets tradition to offer guests a unique experience. A great example of how architecture enhance beauty. Gareth and and all the staff have been exquisite host. Breakfast on the sunny terrace is marvelous and the restaurants suggested great.... More

If you want to be in an Architectural Digest structure this may be your place but its all form and no function. And before readers think I'm being petty, Dar Maya is marketed as a "luxury boutique hotel" and at 130 Euro's per night in Africa there is expectation. We paid extra for a terrace room. The terrace is big... More

We stayed at Dar Maya in November, 2014. What a perfect place to stay! it was up a little side street, an easy walk to the main street and the port. The room was impeccable, bright, quiet, beautifully decorated, no frills, but sublime. Breakfast in the courtyard was perfect. Couldn't think of a nicer place to stay. The service was... More

We probably seemed like nightmare guests before we arrived, as we had to amend our booking at the last minute due to a family bereavement. Gareth could not have been more understanding or helpful, replying to my email immediately, and arranging the booking amendment without any fuss or charge. We were on a nostalgic return trip to Essaouira, and could... More

My wife and I only stayed one night at Dar Maya and we wish we had more time there. The owner Gareth, was very hospitable and directed us to some great restaurants and spots to get a drink. The room was very nice and modern, with heated floors in the bathroom. Dar Maya has a beautiful rooftop, a great lounge... More

This was a lovely place to stay, staff pleasant and helpful. Breakfasts were lovely, and lounge area and rooftop terrace were nice places to chill. We were met at the airport and dropped off in Marrakech for the day by taxi, arranged by Gareth. They provided us with a hot soup when we arrived late at night, and also arranged... More

We stayed at Dar Maya for 2 nights during our trip to Morocco in November and we loved it!
