We spent a week here and had a wonderful, relaxing time - we were after a peaceful retreat and we had just that. It is quite remote, but once you've done the journey a couple of times in a taxi (to and from the main town for example) it's easy to direct to, plus the riad can arrange airport transfers... More

Must start by saying how beautiful this Riad is, with a lovely pool and Bedouin tent outside great for chilling out away from the sun! The staff and owner were really friendly too, and even gave us a lift into Essaouira. As other guests have mentioned the breakfast was superb, rivalling a four star hotel. However, unless you have your... More

This was a fantastic riad and well worth finding. It was hard to find with no signpost off the main road and we had to ask three people before anyone knew it! It's off the essaouira agadir road. From essaouira cross the river and on entering the next town look for the Swiss flag on the "k" restaurant ( I... More

We stayed at Dar Etto after two nights in Marrakech before our Riad in the Medina oc Essaouira. We wanted quiet and relaxation and that's exactly what we got. The chap running things day to day speaks very little (no) English but despite this we were treated incredibly well from the moment we arrived after bumping in an ancient Peugeot... More

What a wonderful place to stay. We cannot recommend this place enough as the space was stunning and was incredible value for money. You do need to be prepared to pay for the distance out of town but we knew this beforehand and can certainly confirm that you should pay no more than 50 dirhams. The taxi is booked by... More

A beautiful place, the room was just fantastic! we got the one in front of the swimming pool!!! We were there in October and still I could enjoy the swimming pool and the amazing tent! The only problem is that it is a bit difficult to find but is part of the adventure! You'll have one more reason to remember... More

The place is absolutely amazing. There is a little garden at the front with a swimming pool hugged by a big tree. The rooms are beautiful, the decoration is very pretty and relaxing. Breakfast was great with natural juices!... It's a bit far from the town but its away from all that fish smell that covers it. Sayid was extremely... More

This is a lovely little riad tucked away from the main town, about a 10 minute taxi ride from the centre. There is a loittle swimming pool and the rooms are well decorated and air conditioned. The place is really peaceful and the people who run it are friendly and helpful. We went as a couple, but I think it... More

Although difficult to find, this riad is really beautiful. We were lucky to have the room next to the pond so we were sweetly awaken by running water and birds singing. The tea and delicious pastries were fantastic. We had a Hamman and a massage and it was very relaxing. Strongly recommended.
