Dar Afram is probably the best place in Essaouira to meet other travellers. Everyone seems to gravitate towards it! Great atmosphere, super cute little riad full of like minded people. The rooms are a little small and could do with a few more furnishings and are a bit expensive for what you get, but it's worth it. The roof terrace is spectacular, wonderful views of the sunset.
I recommend eating in at least once, the food is WONDERFUL, 90dh and you get to meet everyone else before calming down for the live music after.

I've stayed in Dar Afram about three times already and probably will in the future as well. It's a cute place, a bit like a youth hostel in Moroccan style. Most rooms are pretty spacious and definitely very clean, bathrooms are all shared. It locates in the medina, right next to the sea, you can see it from the rooftop terrace. The price includes a breakfast which is very traditional and plentiful. By traditional i don't mean youth hostel traditional toast and milk, no no, i mean Moroccan breakfast - bread, tea, orange juice, honey, olives, jam etc. The owners are a son-dad combo of Australian/Moroccan ethnicity, there's a strong musical vibe in the house because the father has/had a band and they both play an instrument. It's not a budget place though, and also not a traditional riad, like i said before - it's more like a cozy youth hostel with a Moroccan flare.

An amazing riad tucked away at the back of the main square. Run by an Aussie/Moroccan with a penchant for acoustic guitar. The rooms are spacious and clean, atmosphere chilled and friendly and the food great. Evening meal is available on request nightly. A group usually gathers for evening meal around candlelit tables. There's lot's of chatter and a bit of guitar strumming by the owner. A youngish crowd but anyone would feel welcome. Upstairs there's a roof terrace with amazing views over the town. I came for 2 nights and stayed 8!
