We stayed in essaouira three extra days just so we could stay at this place! Abdul and taz's hospitality, friendliness and easy going attitudes made us feel like we were with old friends back home. Dar afram is an exciting place and you can make it what ever you want, from chilling out and escaping during the day on the terrace overlooking the sea, to singing along with Dar Afram at night after a delicious home cooked meal. The riad is beautiful and has lots of natural light.
Don't be put off thinking its a noisy party place; go experience it for yourself and you'll see what I mean. I will be definatly youtubing Dar Afram songs when I get back to Australia, and hope to return one day !
