WE enjoyed just one night in Dar Maya which is a beautiful riad with a modern feel, clean lines and ambience and very well situated in the medina. The roof-top terrace was great for breakfast and views and the rooms were very comfortable.

We enjoyed a fantastic weeks stay at Riad Dar Maya. The hotel is beautifully decorated and our room was large, comfy and consistently clean. The staff went out of their way to be helpful and no request was to large. The owner, Gareth, was very helpful and arranged our transport from and to Marrakech which went seamlessly. I would highly... More

We stayed at Riad Dar Maya for 9 nights during which time we were made to feel at home and & the service we received was superb. The room and hotel in general were spotlessly clean beautifully & tastefully decorated. The staff were very genuine and looked after us so well. All excursions and trips were taken care of for...

Beautifully decorated, clean, great location and excellent service! Gareth the owner was very warm and helpful and seemed like a genuinely good person who treated everyone with respect and Abdel the manager (?) was amazing! This was part of our honeymoon stop but unfortunately on our last night there my husband and I got adventurous with our food choices and... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay at the beautiful Riad Dar Maya. We arrived by bus from Marrakech (very comfortable by the way) and were met at the bus 'station' and walked to the Riad. Gareth the owner met us and welcomed us with mint tea and a rundown of the town and the Riad. Our room was very luxurious... More

Architecture is Art and this new from old building is a delightful piece of interior architecture interpreting traditional themes to provide a series of modern contemporary spaces. We were fortunate to "live" for four days in the Tignna Suite on the top floor with a double door opening on to the public living room feeling as though the whole top... More

We stayed 5 nights at the Riad, it has a great location right in the Medina, staff to meet you at the Medina entrance to guide you to the Riad. The accomodation is really oustanding, the rooms beautifully decorated, bathrooms a total luxury - you can enjoy as well the Jacuzzi on the roof, or a Hamman & Massage (to... More

We stayed in this beautiful riad for just one night and wished it could have been longer partly because Essaouria is a wonderful place for ambling and relaxing, but also because this riad was a simply lovely environment to be in. Very tastefully decorated with the comforts that come with a modern building (not that you'd know it from the... More

Only a fleeting stay at Dar Maya but have already raved about Dar Maya to family and friends! Gorgeous place - clean, modern, chic but with some eclectic furnishings and real Moroccan spirit - and a terrace to die for if you can bag a lounger! Looking out at the rooftops and the sea from the jacuzzi, sun beating down... More

After a long journey in the car, we were met by Riad staff at the town gates and escorted with our bags through the narrow streets of the old medina to the Riad, where we were greeted by a tall handsome Englishman (yes, it’s Gareth, the owner) and his two dogs Nini and Eddy, and brought into into the warm...
