My partner and I stayed at Dar Adul for 5 nights in June 2015 and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We read reviews in national newspapers and the Lonely Planet guides and were not disappointed. The hotel is owned by a French artist and the bright decor and artwork gives the place a unique feel. We were in the smallest of... More

Dar Adul could be so much more, but it was clear from the moment we entered the hotel that the owner and management have not kept the property up. Everything could use a very thorough cleaning, and some repairs throughout. The powder room in the entry area set the tone for the entire stay - the towel was dirty and... More

We stayed at this hotel for four nights and the service was excellent. This is a fabulous with an artistic theme to every room which manages to combine a homely guesthouse feel within its art decor. It also has a gem of a restaurant serving traditional Moroccan food with a quality of a top top restaurant. Its worth a visit... More

We stayed at Dar Adul for a week so got to know it well. The staff is just delightful---amazingly helpful and eager to please. When we first arrived we were a bit concerned at first glance because this isn't a typical hotel, but we needn't have been. The hotel is quirkily decorated: colorful and very artsy. (And the art is... More

Beautiful little Dar. Room and bathroom were very clean and well appointed. There is an exquisite terrace on the roof that overlooks the ocean. Well located - it was easy to walk to everything in the medina and along the beach. The biggest delight was dinner. It was by far one of the best meals that I had in all... More

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
