Dar Ness opens off a covered alleyway & you are immediately ushered into a light & airy space with the impeccably restored rooms radiating off a central, open-air courtyard. Our room had soaring ceilings and large glazed doors opening off the galleried landing adding to the feeling of light and space. The beautifully decorated ensuite bathroom included a golden wash...

Just off the main road at the port, this is a very nicely renovated and clean riad. Most important of all in this moist and damp city, it does not smell of mold and there is a very cozy fireplace where you can read your books or surf the web on rainy days.

Nice clean tidy Riad in a great location. Very clean and tidy and the breakfast was lovely. Friendly team running the place. We stayed for 2 nights and our room was comfortable and very clean. Shame about only being able to pay in cash.

This is a lovely house in Essaoura, easy to find, right off the main plaza, run by an interesting French couple. When we arrived, Booking.com, which issues bookings from several sources, had caused the riad to be overbooked, so the proprietors paid for us to stay in a riad a block away and upgraded our room, as an apology. There... More

We stayed in this Dar for 5 nights. Very helpfull staff. In the evening they made a fire wood in the sitting room where we could use our laptop to watch tv via wifi with a nice cup of mint tea. A good breakfast is served on the rooftop terrace or in the patio. We could park our bikes in... More

Very well restored Riad, rooms furnished with great taste and very clean, each of the rooms has its own atmoshphere and colours, with all necessary confort (without TV thank god). Breakfast on the terrace is wonderful. Located inside the Medina, but calm and very close to port (seafood from the grill) and beach, and just next to Café de France... More

Spent two weeks in Morocco at Christmas and ended the holiday at Dar Ness. What a great finish! The staff were helpful and friendly. The night manager recommended some great restaurants for dinner and made the best mint tea in town when we got home in the evening. Was so nice to sit around a nice warm fire at night... More

We travelled to Essaouira from Marrakech for a change of scenery and cooler temperature and stayed overnight at Dar Ness before returning to Marrakech the following afternoon. We found it easily in a very central location along a quiet street just off the Main Square and very close to the beach. Although not on the sea front, the sea can... More

I stayed in this hotel for three nights during the annual Gnawa festival. It was ideally situated, being close enough to the main stage to be agreeably lulled to sleep by the last concert of the night, but far enough away not to be bothered by crowds in the street outside the hotel. The staff are charming and helpful, my... More
