My wife and I stayed 3 nights with Allison in her Riad and it sure was a "home away from home".
We enjoyed the room, the roof terrace, the breakfast, the atmosphere and most of all Allison and her visiting mom.
The small medina of Essaouira is very nice, easy to navigate, less touristic than Marrakech and with some very nice, at times crazy small and/or decorated, restaurants.
However, be aware of the constant, at times strong, wind from the north, so bring something warm.
And if cats are not for you, don't go to Morocco.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Chez DarMa is beautiful, comfortable peaceful riad that feels like home. As in the original meaning of "Bed and Breakfast" we invite guests to come share our wonderful home with us. Completely renovated in 2008, the riad is layed out on 4 floors with 5 spacious double en-suite bedrooms (although we normally don´t have more than 3 rooms rented at a time). We have 2 kitchens, a spacious central courtyard and 3 wonderful terraces with views over the medina and free WiFi. Located in one of the more traditional districts of the medina the riad is short stroll from many restaurants, shops and of course the beautiful sandy beach. ... more less
