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.

This was my last riad, after a very busy adventurous holiday! I loved this hotel and i found it to be so peaceful and relaxed. Unfortunately we only had two nights here as my friend and I were heading home. The riad was beautiful inside. The owner must be in to art as most of the riad is very colourful... More

A friend and I booked 2 nights here and were welcomed very warmly by the staff. The breakfast was good and the view from the terrace is breathtaking! I was happy to arrive and sad to leave. I felt so comfortable and at home there. It made my visit to Essouira complete.
