.A beautiful Oriental house, in an arabic dream. A warm and pleasant wind is blowing during the day, and makes your thoughts change. We stayed for a week to relax, in this kind of family without expectations. The rhythm in the house as a dance during the day. The warm, sweet and always cheerful staff. Thanks for this wonderfull and... More

The staff were really friendly and chilled, they made every effort to make our stay here fun and relaxing. The food that Fatima cooked was... More

We stayed in essaouira three extra days just so we could stay at this place! Abdul and taz's hospitality, friendliness and easy going attitudes made us feel like we were with old friends back home. Dar afram is an exciting place and you can make it what ever you want, from chilling out and escaping during the day on the... More

There are many riads to choose from in Essaouira, many of which have similar sized rooms and similarly decorated. Dar Afram is in a great location close to the shopping streets, the ramparts which are a great place to sit and take in the sea air, the port and a large plaza with cafes. The staff are very friendly and... More

We had been in Imlil for a few days and wanted somewhere a bit livelier. As soon as you arrive you are made welcome by everyone and anyone that happens to be staying at the time. I think that the owners must make everyone feel friendly? A simple but nice breakfast served on the roof terrace on the morning, music... More
