Everything. Location, small intimate riad with helpfull friendly staff made our stay perfect,
Beautifully decorated. Lovely garden and roof terrace. The couple who run the riad were always on hand to help. Breakfast was a feast of homemade treats. I even got the recipe for the banana jam... Delicious.
Glad I stayed in the medina as you get a chance to experience real life Would highly recommend this place
The room was beautiful, the Garden, breakfast and staff also Great.
Riad is located in a bit doggy side Street. Is not absolutly quiet there - you can hear the mosque everytime and noise from the streets nearby.
The Riad is very well located in the middle of the Medina. It's only a 10 minute walk to the harbour, where you can enjoy a very nice sunset :-) The breakfast was very delicious with fresh fruits, yoghurt and omelette. The garden of the Riad with many flowers is a nice place to relax. Many thanks to the helpful hosts! We would definitely recommend this Riad!
Good location in the Medina. Our hosts were very helpful on our arrival and throughout our stay. All the rooms have been very nicely decorated. Breakfast was lovely, and included home made jams and yoghurt.
Sometimes the hot water system couldn't cope with three of us wanting a shower at once. The 5AM call to prayer was close-by and very loud - bring earplugs.
- Very friendly couple who were more than helpful in recommending restaurants and things to see - Strong wifi - Comfortable place with terrace to chill out - Good location in the middle of the medina
A really good place to stay at. Wonderful owners and staff.
The riad is just beautiful and full of little details that makes you feel in paradise in every spot. It is a really quiet and relaxing place. The owners are lovely and friendly. They give you help and advise for restaurants and best places to see along with some tips for the shopping. We are just delighted with our stay there. Highlight recommended and for sure a place to go back.
We liked the staff, the great breakfast they made and we like the room. we also liked Essaouira al lot: great seafood, nice atmosphere!
Very friendly and helpful staff and extremely well kept rooms and garden. If the owners happen to be there they also make you feel very welcome and are good fun.
This a very nice location, beautiful garden and wonderful decorated rooms. The owners are very kindly and helpful. When it's cold outside they have fireplaces and heater. The breakfast in the morning is very delicious, specially the pan cakes and the homemade yam. That's a place to come back. We enjoyed everything.
Nothing, everything Perfect.
Lovely hosts, pleasant surroundings
Such a great place to stay, would recommend it to anyone visiting. So hospitable and rooms are gorgeous.
wifi could have been better in the rooms.
We really enjoyed staying in this small and well located riad. It has a beautiful and quite garden where we had a very nice breakfast in the mornings. Our bedroom was really cozy and had beautiful light in the afternoon. The hosts were very friendly and helpful.
We stayed for over a week and would have been nice to have the bedlinen changed.
This riad is really a diamond:) Unfortunately we stayed only one night, but we would love to come back. The design of the rooms with different colours and style is lovely.And so is the couple who owns it. With breakfast in the garden, we couldn't have a better start on the day.
Nothing that I didn't like.
It was a perfect place for me stay after a very busy week of meetings. The location was very easy to find off the bus from Marrakech, it was small, intimate and friendly. I also loved the fireplace in the room, i live in a very hot country and never get the chance for a fire so it was a wonderful addition to an already comfortable room.
Location in the City Centre. Lovely rooms, good breakfast.
This was our second stay in Dar Dayana. The rooms are beautifully decorated, the breakfast plentiful. The owners Patrick and Odile are helpful, kind and it feels more like visiting good friends. The staff Hakima and Adil are taking care of you as if you were royals. Personal and very friendly service. The riad is placed very central in the medina and with good shopping facilities nearby. Extremely good value for the money. Thank you Odile, patrick, Hakima and Adil.
Nothing to complain about :-)
Lovely riad, easy to find by yourself with a map, just a 5min walk from one of the entrance doors of the medina. Best breakfast i've had in Morocco! Staff welcoming and friendly. This is a wonderful stop for a short visit to Essaouira.
Very friendly and committed owners with a lovely riad. They helped us with renting a car and stuff like that. We also had a nice evening with them and a bottle of wine. A real 1001 nights experience. As soon as you open the front door you feel at home in the amazing courtyard. Location was fine and all very clean. After 3 weeks Morocco we've had our share of hotels and riads, but if we come back it will be to this place.
Nothing to dislike really.
A good place to relax after a few days in Marrakech.
Nothing to dislike.
Breakfast was really good, as was the dinner we had on one of our nights during our stay. The staff is helpful and very friendly, though note that the restaurants recommended to us by Hakima are not necessarily the best in town. The garden is really nice and peaceful and the whole place is nicely decorated.
The location in the medina is good, but note that a mosque is very close so you will wake up around 5am every morning. There is some noise from the street until ca 23.00 (as noted by other reviewers) but later at night it is mostly very quiet. Note that the Corail room we stayed in is quite small.
Charming Riad in the old city centre. Excellent and friendly employees, always going out of their way to serve you. Great breakfast with fruit salad. Great price for what you get.
The room was a bit smallish. We had a lot of noise on Saturday evening, but it did stop around 1 am. Though in the city centre, it is not in the touristy part (which did not really bother us, as it was a 10 min walk only)
The people who work at Dar Dayana are very nice and friendly and help you with any request. The riad is located in the old part of Essaouira, which for me is the nicest part, next to the souks, port and restaurants. The beach is only 5 mins walk away. We had a very nice time at Dar Dayana, the breakfasts were great and had lots of variety every day. In general we felt very at home.
