My fist visit to Dar Afram was in 2004 and I instantly fell in love with beautiful Essaouira and Dar Afram. On my first visit I met Abdul and Doris and their little daughters. They made my three friends and myself very welcome. From that visit I have regarded them as my Moroccan family. Later the same year I returned with my daughter and the year after with my grandson. There have been many visits since with various friends. I have always had a superb stay and everyone who has visited with me has enjoyed the experience and have had nothing but compliments for Abdul, Taz and the riad. My daughter has also returned to stay at Dar Afram. I have always felt welcome and cared for and I have met some wonderful and talented people. The house is spotlessly clean, the food is excellent quality, the atmosphere is relaxed and happy. The music is fantastic and Abdul and his son Taz are excellent hosts. The girls who keep house and cook have all be lovely, friendly young women who have ensured the needs of the guests have been met. Over the years I have become good friends with Abdul, Doris and Taz and I know that when I visit they will make sure my stay is a happy one filled with good memories. That to me is priceless. My next visit is booked!
