I have stayed at a couple of places in Essaouira and this is THE BEST I have experienced. We stayed for 3 nights and while it is not in the center of the medina (which we knew) we really enjoyed the short stroll back through laid back Essaouira to the Riad every night. The rooms are large and bathrooms are nicely appointed and stylish. The breakfasts on the rooftop terrace were great with plenty of food. It is wasn’t just a traditional Moroccan breakfast of breads and jams. We had made-to-order eggs, yogurt, french toast, endless fresh squeezed juices and amazingly fresh fruit. And I should mention that the roof top terrace is wonderful. It is large and open and is made for reading on a warm sunny afternoon and then falling asleep. Just a great place to relax and absorb the Moroccan way.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Chez DarMa is beautiful, comfortable peaceful riad that feels like home. As in the original meaning of "Bed and Breakfast" we invite guests to come share our wonderful home with us. Completely renovated in 2008, the riad is layed out on 4 floors with 5 spacious double en-suite bedrooms (although we normally don´t have more than 3 rooms rented at a time). We have 2 kitchens, a spacious central courtyard and 3 wonderful terraces with views over the medina and free WiFi. Located in one of the more traditional districts of the medina the riad is short stroll from many restaurants, shops and of course the beautiful sandy beach. ... more less
