On reading other reviews we decided to stay for 7 nights, and were glad we did. We felt at home and very relaxed after a warm welcome by Gareth and his staff . From the time we were picked up by the taxi arranged by Gareth to the time we left we had a wonderful relaxing holiday. Just wandering around the streets and markets of Essaouria stopping off at a cafe every so often kept us occupied along with some long walks along the beach. A few afternoons spent on the rooftop terrace listening to the sea and seagulls, and using the newly installed Jacuzzi added to the relaxed feel. The riad is beautiful. The understated design is cool and calming compared to the busy medina. Gareth seems to know everyone and everything about the town and his recommendations for places to eat were spot on. We have told everyone we know what a great place Dar Maya is. Highly recommended.
