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!

This riad rocks. Young or old, straight or bohemian, travelling or just weekend tripping this place is a must needed respite from all the other craziness in Morocco. From sunrise breakfasts on the terrace through to brilliant home cooked dinners after dark dar afram will look after you and more than likely refresh you from daily rubbish grind of real... More

We were recommended Dar Afram by a friend and were not disappointed! We arrived on a beautiful sunny day and were greeted by the hotel staff with mint tea on the incredible roof terrace, this followed by delicious breakfasts and a delicious dinner cooked by the staff just for us! The service was impeccable - not only was the manager... More

I could go on for days about how good Dar Afram is, but you should just see for yourself. Abdul is an absolute legend. We had the joy of being one of the few guests staying at the time, but he looked after us so well. We felt more like we were visiting a friend then staying in a hotel.... More
