dar beldi is 3 traditional houses knocked togehter, so typically Moroccan with gardens in interior courtyards and only four rooms. Owners live on site, and are very hospitable although requiring guests to speak French, however badly ! Pierre Ives ran us around the town when we arrived to orientate us to restaurants, beach and how to get back to Dar Beldi. Most accommodation in Oualidia is near the ocean front, many caravand and holiday homes, most empty in March. Dar Beldi is a good fifteen minutes walk away in the old town, and the wal;k did not appeal at night either by road or along the rocky shoreline. Happily Pierre Ives or Guy or a restaurant owner drove us and this appears to be standard practice. The main beach faces ther Atlantic with great rollers and sand dunes, marred for us by quad bikes making walking not as relaxing as it should have been. There is another beach, with safer sswimming, behind a lagoon. We were there out of season and had restarants to ourselves- good to great food but no atmosphere. Wine is readily available, despite being a Muslim country and ther Sahara labels are good value. There are no tourist shops or facilities other than small kiosks. All four rooms in Dar Beldi face into the courtyards and were dark and cool - we had bad weather so this made them gloomy, but there is a TV room and the roof terrace is very nice.
