The best thing about Dar Ness is its location. It is really close to a gate that opens into the main plaza, close to the beach and the sea port. It is also conveniently located near the souks. The Riad itself is beautiful, and has charming interiors with helpful staff. All that said, you might expect that the review should... More

What a beautiful riad. Clean and tastefully restored, peace permeates the rooms. Each room is unique and perfect. Breakfast is fantastic with proper coffee, homemade yogurt, fresh orange juice and baked goods with butter and jams. You can order dinner in, and do it's fantastic. The staff was always helpful and friendly.

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

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
