Gareth's Dar Maya is a lovely oasis hidden in the Essaouira medina. Not only is the space stunning, as detailed in every other review but Gareth and his team went the extra mile to make sure my stay was every bit as decadent as possible. Word is obviously already spreading as during my visit were a variety of different guests from honeymooners, families and couples from around the globe all who also loved their time there!
The rooftop pool and setting is gorgeous for a glass or two of rose after hours in the medina or the beach and both the communal lounge and dining areas are lovely to just relax in. I would also recommend having the hamman and massage as well, this was a fantastic way to finish a day.
Though it has to be said my absolute favourite part of my stay was the two furry helpers who are so adorable and if you ask Gareth nicely you might even get to take them for a stroll on the beach like I did! I had an amazing four days here!
