“A haven in the countryside!”
Reviewed 25 September 2012

Helen & Said are the most amazing hosts! Fantastic home cooked food, casual but informative walks in the stunning surrounding countryside, attentive but not obtrusive service all make for a perfect stay! We stumbled across this cafe/restaurant/b&b whilst exploring the area and after having a coffee with a view to die for and a quick tour of the house we booked to go back the following night for dinner, bed & breakfast.
Thank you for an fabulous stay - sorry it has taken so long to write this, thought I had written it with the other reviews earlier in the year!!!

“Tranquil location”
Reviewed 6 July 2012 via mobile

We stopped here on the way back from a Berber souk. Sayeed was an excellent host, and we had lovely food there. The view over the hills to the sea is stunning, and this is a quiet, peaceful location. Excellent. We were lucky to have a tour of his private riad, with even better views from the roof terrace.

“A Hidden Away Gem”
Reviewed 5 June 2012

We stopped here for lunch after visiting a local souk and were treated to a wonderful meal, freshly prepared and accompanied by a huge plate of lovely Moroccan appetisers. The shaded outdoor seating provides an unfettered view of the ocean.
The owners were very welcoming and friendly and made our brief visit a pleasure.

“Simply Stunning”
Reviewed 22 March 2012

Wow, what an amazing day we had. I fell in love with Dar Na straight away, it's such a stylish property with sublime views. Helen took us on a walk through the countryside, we passed shepherds with sheep and goats. The surrounding landscape was beautiful especially when we arrived at the waterfall. The views of the beach are breathtaking. We spent a while relaxing on the beach watching a local fisherman fixing his net. We walked back to Dar Na over the headland and sand dunes back up to the village. Such a wonderful walk that I will never forget. I can't wait to experience it again. Thanks Helen!
Lunch was delicious we tasted an assortment of traditional Moroccan starters and dips, the veggie couscous was really filling. By this time everyone was ready to chill out, we relaxed on the terrace and once again took in the breathtaking views. Hoping to visit again in April.

“Personal hospitality above and beyond the call of duty”
Reviewed 26 September 2011

This privately owned riad by sayeed and his English wife Helen is perfect if you want to be off the beaten track but close to the sea and the charming seaside town of Esseouira. sayeed is the consummate host and guide if you want to see authentic Morocco. We will be back!
