This is a nice place, perfect to relax. Essaouira is a beautiful place: the Ocean, the small streets, the smell of spices, the surfers hanging around... you'll like it. And then, you will be back at the Dar Assalama, where the beautiful smiles of the staff will make you feel at home. Great breakfast too!

This place is tucked away in a back alley but it's totally worth the detour. This is because it offers astounding value for money - I paid approx £15/night for a triple room with ensuite, a lavish breakfast and snacks & refreshments on demand. What's more, the views from the terrace, the friendly service and the cozy architecture make a... More

I don't think I have ever been on a trip where the hotel was the highlight. We went at a very unfortunate time where it rained extremely heavily for two days, unusually for the region in May. the price was excellent (by worldwide standards) and the quality was very high. The room was very nice, the owner of the hotel... More

We stayed here for 4 days over Easter. The Riad only has 6 bedrooms and this gives it a very intimate feel. It was formerly a house and the downstairs is a quiet public space for all residents to use. The excellent breakfast was varied and plentiful. The roof terrace has a few sunbeds and a great view towards the... More

Initially the shower overflowed into the open bathroom but once the drain sieve was removed the water flowed without a problem. Just be weary of this before you have a flood on your hands which we had to mop up! We stayed here on a recommendation of daughter and her husband. They spent some time here a few years ago... More

I booked at Dar Assalama based on very good reviews and it was as good as or better than expected. The host and staff were friendly and accommodating, breakfasts excellent and rooms decorated beautifully, comfortable and clean. Location great and lovely upper terrace for lying in the sun.

We have nothing but praise for this Riad. It really felt like a home from home. We stayed in one of two superior rooms which in our option are well worth the money.

This was a great choice. Very Clean, fabulous breakfasts (possibly the best on this trip to Morocco). Yassin was so helpful and made sure that we had great advice on where to go, where to eat and where to buy Moroccan wine. the views from the roof terrace were lovelyl and the bedrooms very comfortable and quiet.

Great correspondence from host before we arrived in Essaouira. Location was great, not far from Bab Marrakech and taxi was waiting for us at Agadir airport as promised.
