Dar al Bahar, Essaouira
A lovely riad in an amazing location.
Everything about this riad was just what we wanted. On arrival we were offered mint tea and Moroccon cookies before being shown to our room which was great. As with most riads, our room wasn't huge but it had everything we needed. We had one of the sea view rooms which was great. The riad couldn't be closer to the sea, so to look out every morning was a really lovely start to the day. The breakfast on the roof terrace is great - coffee, fresh orange juice, omelette and roll. Lovely to eat as you sit and watch the city come to life and plan your day. The location is great - it's quiet but only about a 2 minute walk from the centre of the medina. The staff were really helpful too. I can't wait to go back!

Fantastic ocean views.
Fantastic views of the ocean from the roof terrace. We could have watched the waves all day crashing over the rocks. Also great views of the sunset. Everyone made us welcome and we had the most lovely breakfasts delivered by dumb waiter up the outside of the building, a bit unusual to see. Excellent hot shower and fresh towels every day. A nice relaxing riad to stay in.

Nice hotel with roof terrace for breakfast.
Stayed here three nights and we were happy with the hotel location and the staff, the breakfast was very nice. Showers were decent enough too - consistently warm :)
