We stayed at Dar Maya for two days in March 2014 which turned out to be the highlights of our Morocco trip. Credit mainly goes to Dar Maya and the team around Gareth who made us feel very welcome in their beautiful house. The entire riad could easily appear in a design magazine without being over stylish and making you feel uncomfortable. Rooms are large, airy and have the most amazing bathrooms (think of mini hammams). The roof top terrace offers great views of Essaouira and the ocean, there is stable wifi throughout the entire building (rare in Moroccan hotels), homemade breakfast is delicious - in essence it's hard to think of a nicer accomodation to spend relaxing days in the heart of Essaouira's medina. The best about this riad, however, is the helpfulness and friendliness of Gareth, his staff and his two cute dogs. We hope to return as soon as possible!
