Internet connection doesn't reach the upper level. (Still available at lobby/lounge room).
Located close to the port, helpful staff.
22 March 2015
Really nice owner and sweet and helpfull staff. The room was perfect and clean with a nice terrace. In the morning you can get a nice and simple french breakfast with bread, jam, orange juice and homemade yoghurt. I would definitely go again when I come back to Essaouira!

The riad is beautiful and very peaceful. It is in a central location a few steps from restaurants and bars. The terrace is lovely and there is also a cosy common room in the patio area.The owner and the staff were friendly and very helpul. They gave us a bigger room and didn't charge any extra fee for that. Great breakfast in the morning
28 February 2015
we got a bigger room than we expected for same rate
17 February 2015
The warm and friendly reception we received on arrival was superb. This was especially important for us as we had travelled down from Tanger, a distance of over 700 Kms. For the morning an excellent start to the day with a fresh and homemade breakfast. Moroccan breads and crepes with fig or apricot jam. Freshly squeezed orange juice and yogurts. Moroccan tea or coffee. The owner James and his team were very charming and willing to help with anything that they could.
10 February 2015
The lobby smells strongly of cigarette smoke and the bed was hard - but to be fair 5 out of 5 of the beds I slept in morocco were rock hard.
Location was everything. The hotel is pretty and free breakfast is solid.
26 January 2015
The owner of the Riad is not very friendly. Price quality one of the worst roads I have ever stayed in Morocco.
8 January 2015
there is really nothing.
beautifully restored riad, furnished and arranged with a great taste (furniture, lamps, pictures, plants...details), very nice bathroom. we loved the terrace. very nice and helpfull staff and owner. there is nothing other to say than this was in 2,5 weeks the most beautiful and cleanest place we have stayed in marocco.
6 January 2015
The taxes added on to the bill... Not expected and begrudged!
Quaint property, nicely designed rooms. Fire lit at night which was a nice place to retreat to at night. Breakfast on the terrace was a treat, particularly the yoghurts... Except the seagulls of course! The female staff were particularly helpful when out child was I'll, helping us to arrange a doc trams collect a prescription.

The one night that Ali was not at the riad, the other staff person was not so helpful and there was no one on staff when we needed to check out, so one of the cleaning staff ended up helping us check out.
Ali, the front desk person was incredibly kind and helpful. Our room was clean and spacious.

Took a while to find since it is kind of down a scarey looking tunnel. Not scarey at all though.
Just a nice place to stay. Close to the main Square but tucked away in a quiet alley.
21 October 2014
Very friendly staff accomodating our needs and kindly recommending restaurants, hammans, etc. Very quiet and clean place and simple morrocan decor, good beds and nice breakfast.
12 October 2014
The front door gives no indication of how good this Riad is. It's beautifully renovated with a sunny terrace and large, stylish rooms. The staff are very friendly and while it's right next to the main square it's quiet at night. The nicest place I've stayed in Morocco.

The staff atention.
12 July 2014
Breakfast was quite heavy with just bread (no fruits, no yoghurt) The hotel felt quite damp and moist - bed and pillows smelt like damp. The view is not really a view of the sea - you can mainly see into the unfinished construction work behind the hotel. Essaouira was a bit too windy and we would be unlikely to return as it felt quite uncomfortable at times. Not the type of place you can sit on the beach / walk comfortably close to the beach.
Location was very good - close to main square, good restaurants, nice spot to watch sunset, close to beach. We quickly realised that Essaouira was not our ideal holiday destination so asked the hotel to reduce our stay to 2 nights from the original 3 night booking. They did this without trouble and were very personable about it.

Peaceful, lovely terrace, very comfy bed and excellent breakfast all in An ideal central location
23 May 2014
There is no wi-fi in the rooms, and even in the public areas it is very weak.
Dar Ness is a very nice riad in a great location just off the main square. It is very comfortable and clean. If you are driving, there is a large, secure parking lot on the other side of the square.
18 May 2014
Breakfast somewhat poor by European standards (no sausages, eggs, or omelette). No elevator, just narrow stairs (this might be difficult for the people who are not physicaly fit...), but this is because the building is not modern! The town is very small, nothing to do if you stay for more than 2 days and are not surfer...
Very nice and helpful staff. Location in the medina, very close to the old port. No street noise in the room, fortunately.
15 May 2014
The layout and size of our bedroom limited any storage space and the stair case down to the bathroom/dressing area was very steep and difficult to negotiate.
Location and helpfulness of staff. The Riad was very traditional and authentic. The price was good value for money. It was situated very near the harbour, restaurants and a bar.
24 April 2014
Everything was great except it would've been nice to know the total cost of our stay before checkout. We imagined there may be an extra tax, which we were fine with, but it was much higher than we anticipated and we didn't have enough durham to cover the total cost.
Excellent location! The riad is located right off the main square, which was especially nice at night. The staff was kind and we were offered mint tea each night, which we really appreciated. The staff cleaned our room each day and replaced the towels. The riad is much closer to the sea than we expected--a pleasant surprise! I would definitely recommend the riad!
23 April 2014
Excellent location in the medina right off the main square. Quiet at night. Lovely, pristine room and beautifully tiled bathroom and shower. Delicious breakfast. Friendly staff. You can't go wrong staying at this Riad.
18 April 2014
Spaciousness of Riad that was hard to guess from the outside
