I can't say enough good things about this Riad and its manager, Taz. The location is fantastic: right beside the city walls and the in the Medina, yet hidden enough to be very peaceful - I always slept very well in the beautiful ensuite red-carpet room we stayed in. The downstairs meanwhile has beautiful artwork and wonderful chill out areas... More

Amazing place. Great atmosphere, inside the medina, hosts very helpful, amazing hospitality. It was a bit hard to find our way there but in hindsight it's not that hard. A bit expensive for my taste but I would visit again! A must go!!!!

Unfortunately, we only had two nights at Dar Afram but our time there was the highlight of our time in Morocco. The owners/staff provided wonderful hospitality that made you never want to leave. We could have just stayed at Dar Afram all day rather than exploring the city because of the chill, creative, welcoming atmosphere that was provided. The room... More

Dar Afram has excellent owners. Good music is played throughout the day, and there is live music at night. But the guests and owners smoke in the main rooms, and it drifts up through the entire riad. The bathroom shower head was kind of broken too. The room was clean when we came in, but nobody came in the second... More

We absolutely had an amazing stay of 10 days at Dar Afram! The place immediately felt like home, thanks to the super friendly staff and the special and relaxed atmosphere. Me and my friend shared a very big and beautiful room together. We enjoyed amazing home cooking, thanks to Soufiane and Mounia, and super funky and beautiful music, thanks to... More

My stay at Dar Afram was a wonderful experience and I will certainly return. The decor and the artwork are very tasteful and Abe and his staff really make you feel at home. Great views from the terrace where you can enjoy a relaxing breakfast or watch the sunset. I had booked for seven nights but truly did not want... More

Found this place on Lonely Planet and the 'Moroccan-Australian' owner sounded like someone we'd like to meet (us being 2 Australians). Easily found the Riad and was welcomed into a lovely lounge and met about 4 fellow travellers who were all so friendly and interested in talking to us. Was offered a beverage (beer and wine! A rarity in Morocco!)... More

I had planed to stay one night. I ended up staying 10 nights. The hard facts: Rooms, beds and bathrooms are clean and the food is excellent. But arriving at Dar Afram, I stopped thinking in hotel-dimensions, I just felt at home and enjoyed life in Essaouira.

Staying at Riad Dar Afram was the perfect end to our holiday in Morocco. We spent 3 relaxing days in Dar Afram and wish we could have stayed longer. I'm so glad we bumped into the manager Sofiane while looking for a place to stay in Essaouira. The Riad was exactly what we were hoping to find, it's in a... More

We couldn't have asked for a better Riad for our stay in Esoueira! They were great- so welcoming, so easy going and the place is beautiful!!! More like staying in a beautiful home! The roof terrace was perfect for the evening. We were truly spoilt! The perfect place for your holiday or weekend!
