Score from 413 reviews Excellent
As it is so close to the sea, the sea mist doesn't allow clothes to dry and everything is damp in the morning but part from that the hotel is lovely
the location directly by the sea is great. The service of the Mohammed was excellent
just next door are 4 smoking chimneys of a hamam!
We had s wonderful stay at this Riad. Love the staff. Our room was at the back on the edge of the Atlantic. How fantastic.
The location was a problem at first but you soon got use to the Medina and dark streets. Always felt safe.
Well placed. Staff friendly without being intrusive.Wonderful views from the roof. Roof terrace nice to sit and have a glass of wine through the and snack in the evenings - you can buy wine at a shop next to the medina walls out through the Bab Doukkala...
We had the room (the only one) on the ground floor 'behind' reception. It was very small and the windows opened onto the streets from two sides. All the visitors entering and leaving and having breakfast are outside your bedroom door! Our fellow travelers were on the 2nd floor and it was wonderful.
Amazing views from the rooftop, clean rooms, comfortable beds, and doubled-up windows to keep out any street sounds.
Breakfast, service and the view.
Location is great, and also easy to find. From the terrace, there is a nice view over the sea. Beautifully decorated.
The room was a bit small, but that was no real problem. Very nice place.
very nice interiors, beautiful terrace overseeing the ocean - overall highly recommended!
Close to sea wall, to better hear the ocean. Nice view from roof.
Nice view from the rooftop if you don't mind walking 67 steps to get up there.
We ended up in the Zahra twin-bedded room which is the size of a broom closet and on the main floor tucked behind the reception desk. This meant we could hear everyone coming and going through the main door and walking along the street outside our windows. Bathroom had a pronounced sewer odour which was very off-putting. Suggest you stay at the gorgeous hotel (I forget the name) a few steps away instead with fabulous décor and amenities. FYI, Dar al Bahar does not accept credit cards.
Ambience of tiny provincial hotel.
Friendly staff and seaside location on the old wall in ESsouira.
Rooms were small with double beds even smaller. location in a seedy part of town and the whole place is quite dark and clostraphobic. The owner, John Claude, gave us a part refund when we cancelled our last night but we had to fight hard for it even though we gave 24 hours notice.
Excellent roof terrace
All the staff at Dar Al Bahar were very friendly, the room was lovely with simple, unfussy decor and very clean. Most importantly for us it was very quiet! Highlight definitely must be having breakfast on the lovely roof terrace in the sun, overlooking the waves breaking against the sea wall. We would definitely stay there again.
This isn't a dislike per se, but solo female travellers might not feel 100% comfortable with it's location, tucked away on a quieter back street.
Breakfast upstairs on the roof was lovely.
The ground floor room is dark, cold and its windows are on ground level. This leaves you with a choice of closing the thick dark curtains or being on view to passers-by. Being right behind reception it is also noisy.
Breakfast is very good and you can request more. Location is not far from the fort. I booked 3-person room which is clean and nice but a bit tiny. No heater in room and bathroom but you can request more blanket. Staff can speak very little English but they can understand basic word.
the location was fabulous
the room was a little too small
Fabulous location, comfortable, quaint and characterful hotel. Friendly helpful staff.
Lovely little room (but plenty of space for what we needed). Great views out of the bedroom window of the crashing breakers of the Atlantic. In the Medina so easy access to cafés and shops but very quiet (with double glazed windows to keep out the noise of theatlantic if you want to). Would definitely stay again
Only having time to stay one night!
Location is beautiful
room malika has a wonderful ocean view. beautiful room.
The hotel has a cozy and homely atmosphere with a wonderful oceanic view ideal for a couple's getaway. Its authentic and simple decor provides a peaceful and serene experience.
hotel in the old town, close to cafes and shops. Helpful staff, delicious breakfast, beautiful terrace with panoramic views
Great terrace on the roof with exciting sea-view. Location in medina, on the seashore Friendly and helpful staff
It was a little bit difficult to find the dar in the heart of medina. In November it was rather cold in the room and there was no heating device inside
The staff were absolutely fantastic. The location was perfect. We would recommend this place to anyone.
