Absolutely top notch!!
I was planning to stay in Essaouira for a few days, and initially booked another Riad online for the first couple of nights.
I met Taz and Abdul at the local tea house, and asked them for pointers in the town.
Fortunately they pointed me to their wonderful Dar Afram. I visited them that evening and was treated to a fabulous show of live music, entertaining chat and a delicious home cooked meal.
I decided to move in the next day, and ended up staying for the best part of 3 weeks.
Abdul and Taz made me feel right at home, and almost one of the family.
I cant wait to return for another few weeks of R&R, creative vibes and fantastic live music every evening!!
One of the best places I've EVER stayed, and I am very well traveled.
