“Very Peacefull”
Reviewed 11 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Lovely Villa, very peacefull. Just make sure your taxi driver knows where it is.... ours did not and we drove up and down very bumpy roads for about an hour before arriving. Khadeesha, the wonderfull housekeeper, cook, masssuese is lovely!!! Cooks beautifully, keeps everything emaculate and is so happy and helpful.Cooks Moroccan food... was a brilliant guide round Essaouria. While we were there, there was virtually no internet connection, let alone high speed so if this is an issue be warned.Tv is all in French..... Also the pool is not heated... probs not a problem a lot of the year but it was freezing when we went. Beds fairly firm.......... Hammam in villa so you don't have to go anywhere else......

“An ideal spot”
Reviewed 31 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

This villa is perfect for any occasion - with a group of friends or all the family. There was 10 of us that stayed for 6 nights and we couldnt have been treated better. The housekeeper Khadisha is to thank for that!
Clean, homely, GREAT local food, big spaces with different chill-out areas on the property in a quite area 15 mins drive from Essouira.
Only negative thing is the pool is a bit cold but that could be seen as refreshing!

Thank you Khadisha for making our trip so amazing - we will be back!

“5* Villa and 5* service.”
Reviewed 31 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We rented the Villa for 10 friends for a 30th birthday for 6days. The villa was beautiful, the pictures don't do it justice. Located in the quite countryside a short drive from the ocean and town. The most peaceful place I have ever been to!

We decided to go with the maid for the week and that was probably the smartest fissdon i have ever maid. She was amazing, worked so hard everyday, cooking the most amazing food, a feast for breakfast ever morning! She was so lovely, they even bought us a massive birthday cake on the last day. I strongly recommend getting the maid - (kashadisha) worth every penny! And to top things off the day i got back to the uk she rung and said she had found £100 in the room and asked for the address to post it!

Amazing Villa, amazing people and worth every penny.

“Holiday of a lifetime!”
Reviewed 21 April 2013 for a stay in March 2013

We decided on Morocco for a family celebration because of the weather at Easter and the fact that none of us had really been before, and Villa Darko because of its size, and the pool. It turned out to be the perfect choice, with plenty of rooms and space for a big family both to eat and spend time together and to get away from each other. Khadija was as much of a treasure as other reviewers have said, and more - a wonderful cook and tireless launderer who would hardly let a garment hit the floor before whisking it away and returning it clean and folded later in the day. I had to beg her not to iron underwear! She was full of useful information about local customs and places of interest, and even joined us on a shopping trip into Essaouira and made sure we were treated fairly by the car park attendant. The Wednesday souk in the village nearby was fascinating. Men in biblical robes with shepherd's crooks and donkey transport looked much as their ancestors must have done, but they were only mildly interested in, not disapproving of, our lightweight colourful western dress. People, including the children, we met while walking in the lanes and argan woods around the villa were all very open and friendly and happy to have a chat, even invite us to their homes for mint tea. The small grocer just before the supermarket in Ghazwa was much cheaper than the shops in Essaouira for almost everything, especially spices, kohl for the eyes and Atlas mud for the hammam! The narrow pot-holed track leading to the villa is a damage trap for hire cars and you might be wise to take out maximum insurance with an excess waiver.
