“Coastal Retreat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2012 for a stay in May 2012

Chez Dar Ma offers a brilliant casual and homey atmosphere- Allison and her staff (Helima) tend to our every need- providing excellent breakfast meals and clean, comfortable rooms.
Our hostess Allison provided top notch restaurant suggestions and local places of interest.
A fantastic "chill" spot from the craziness of Morocco.

“Beautiful Riad with just the right amount of local help and support”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2012 for a stay in February 2012

Breakfast in hot sunshine sitting on sofas on the roof terrace, early evenings by the log fire downstairs and all the wonders of beautiful, laid back Essaouira to enjoy and explore within a few minutes walk. Alison's Riad is beautifully designed and is well equipped with everything you'll need including an invaluable roof top kitchen for those cold beer and glass of chilled rose moments. The bedrooms are all large and comfortable and all with ensuite shower rooms so no-one got a raw deal! Thanks to Alison, Halima and Hassan for all their help and friendship and to Said for the great taxi service from Marrakesh. Look no further than Chez Dar Ma, its beautiful and you won't be disappointed!

Liked best: Sitting in the sunshine on the topmost sun terrace as the seagulls wheeled over the roof tops al around me.
Liked least: Getting to the roof terrace and remembering I'd left something on the ground floor!!!

“A Jewel in the Medina”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2011 for a stay in November 2011

We've stayed in many places in Essaouira and this our favorite in the medina. We find that usually places are either comfortable or beautiful and Chez Dar Ma is both. We rented the whole place for a stay with friends. Between us we had 5 children. We also ordered the breakfast two of the mornings. I'm always a bit nervous when we book sight unseen, but the pictures on the website well represented the house. The owner has taken great care to create a well curated space with artifacts from around the world. Still it wasn't overdone so as to make us uncomfortable with the children. Our first day there was sunny and to welcome us she served us tea on the roof top terrace. On the roof is an indoor as well as outdoor sitting area and a small separate sunbed area. The location is tucked in the far corner of the medina, but we didn't the find the walk to be a problem. It rained our next few days there but we were cozy as could be even with rain falling in the central courtyard. When the DVD player wasn't working for the kids, she went out immediately to purchase a new one. The owner is friendly and helpful without being overbearing. Its hard to express just how much we enjoyed our time. Thank you Allison! I know we will be back when we can.
