We loved this accommodation as it was tasteful, full of charm and good value. We found it fairly easily. The art work and decorations were amazing and the room was large with interesting furniture. The service was good, especially the guy who was on at night.

Behind a tiny white moroccan door off main streets of Essaouira this hidden pearl is located and it is definitely worth a visit. Every room has it's own special interior design and the entire hotel is packed with modern art, odd furniture and special ornamentations. Top floor rooms has their own terraces with both ocean view as well as view... More

We only needed a hotel in Essaouira for one night on our way from Marrakech to Casablanca. This hotel is perfect. It's decor is fantastic: art work everywhere, quirky lamps and objects d'art all over the place. The bathroom is sort of weird by North American standards but this isn't North America. The bedroom has 2 great arm chairs and... More

My partner and I stayed at Dar Adul for 5 nights in June 2015 and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We read reviews in national newspapers and the Lonely Planet guides and were not disappointed. The hotel is owned by a French artist and the bright decor and artwork gives the place a unique feel. We were in the smallest of... More

Dar Adul could be so much more, but it was clear from the moment we entered the hotel that the owner and management have not kept the property up. Everything could use a very thorough cleaning, and some repairs throughout. The powder room in the entry area set the tone for the entire stay - the towel was dirty and... More
