Dar Afram is a good experience. Nice atmosphere, very friendly hosts that make you feel at home. Fine and clean rooms. Private showers. Big terrace at the top of the building, with a view to the sea. We had planned to stay there 3 nights. But we ended up spending 7 nights and all the vaccation in Dar Afram Essauria.... More

We spent a few days at Riad Dar Afram and it was a great experience. We were picked up at the Bus station by Taz, the owner, who makes you feel like home. The Riad location is great and easy to get around the medina. Breakfast can't get boring after 3 days but the dinner is really good and always... More

Had a great time during our stay in essaouira!! The rooms the host and the food were great! The owner Taz makes you feel comfortable and at home. No noise so we slept like babies will definitely return to this riad when we return to essaouira!!

Stayed for two nights in dar afram. And it were the best during my 10 day trip in morocco. The atmosphere is really good, thanks to the owner! It is easy to meet other travellers in the courtyard. In the evening it is possible to join a good dinner with the other guest. When I was there we had a... More

I spent a few days there and it was a great experience. It was like staying with a family, shared dinner and breakfasts lunches in town together and freedom to do your own thing. I got into the door and offered the host money and the firs thing he told me was, "Don't worry about the money you can pay... More

I only had one night here but I got to say that I loved the place. It was really comfortable and relaxed. The dinner that Taz cooked was delicious and was a really good way to get to meet other guests staying in the hotel. If you are going to Essaouira you got to stay here. The location is perfect,...

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
