Owned by an artist, the place is lovingly decorated with art. Each room is unique, one room nicer than the other; which makes choosing quite difficult. The manager was a super-friendly chap from Africa who stayed overtime to check us in, walk us to a bank machine and then to a restaurant he had recommended (Restaurant Les Ramparts). After handing...

Dar Adul has an ideal location in Essaouira. The view from the rooftop is incredible. Be sure to enjoy dinner here at least once- the food was incredible and you will be entertained by a magician or musicians. They were all very talented and entertaining! I had a small room and was a little disappointed in it. Very small and... More

The place was amazing, they upgraded our room which was great. The restaurant is delicious and the musician playing is very very good. It's really a great place to be in the summer since essaouira is so windy. I loved the atmosphere. Don't expect it to be to quiet, because it's a restaurant too. If this is not a problem... More

The Dar has a great location just on the side of the ramparts. It is a magic experience that delighted my senses. I stayed at room tatlaa with a double layer, it was great to jump up stairs to get my bed!i would describe the room as a full of joy and colors! The restaurant of the Dar is one... More

Dar Adul is situated in the center of Essaouira, very easy to find! Upon entering the riad I had a shock, as the whole house is plenty of beautiful paintings by the owner. Every little corner of the house present a piece of art, scuplture or beautiful furniture, it's quite mindblowing for the first five minutes, but after you just... More

I spent two nights at Dar Adul with my adult daughter. We were welcomed upon arrival by Gwen, who offered us mint tea after our long voyage, where our luggage, regrettably did not accompany us. Gwen helped make several calls and gave us access to the house phone to try and run down our luggage and to schedule a camel... More

We spend two nights at Dar Adul and enjoyed it very much. The room was clean and lovely decorated as was the riad with colourful paintings. Breakfast at the roof terrace was good. In the evening we dined at the restaurant at the ground floor. The food was delicous. We had live music both evenings until about ten, which you... More

We finished our Morocco Trip in this comfy wonderfull riad and were very glad to stay there. Gwen and all the people did their best do make our stay as comfortable as possible. Food was really delicious. What makes Dar Adul especially special is its all-over-art-paintings.

I dined here for the first time with a good friend. We knew it was the same owner as the Caravane cafe in Essaouira. The food was OK but not great. The price was pretty good at 150 DH for starter/ main or main/ dessert or 200DH for 3 courses which we had. As ever, same as the Caravane, plates... More

Spent 3 nights in this great riad in good location. Wonderful room for the 4 of us, with the kids well catered for. Fantastic views over the ramparts to the sea, and good breakfasts. Loved the art scattered around the riad and the rooms.
