We stayed in Dar Nafoura for four days, booking the entire house for a foodtrips.co.uk cookery trip. I have never experienced a similar level of hospitality in any Riad, hotel or guest house. Sylvie and Jacky were focussed on making our stay as enjoyable as possible and gladly agreed to us taking over their entire house and staff, turning it upside down.
Their enthusiasm in making our trip enjoyable is probably best expressed through an anecdote. Lacking cooking equipment for a whole lamb Jacky helped us in creating a technical drawing, finding a welder and ultimately pulling the resulting monster of an oil barrel barbecue through the open courtyard onto the roof.
I am not sure if this is something you want to do on your trip to Essaouira. (Actually, I am. You don't, do you?) But whatever your plans are for Essaouira: The team that runs and works at Dar Nafoura will, based on my experience, work tirelessly for you.
Is the Riad also beautiful, located in a less touristy and more interesting part of the Medina, with lovely breakfast and all that at a surprisingly low price point? It is.
Go. You'll love it.
If you are traveling as a couple, Loubna is the most spacious of the doubles.
