Breakfast in hot sunshine sitting on sofas on the roof terrace, early evenings by the log fire downstairs and all the wonders of beautiful, laid back Essaouira to enjoy and explore within a few minutes walk. Alisons Riad is beautifully designed and is well equipped with everything youll need including an invaluable roof top kitchen for those cold beer and glass of chilled rose moments. The bedrooms are all large and comfortable and all with ensuite shower rooms so no-one got a raw deal! Thanks to Alison, Halima and Hassan for all their help and friendship and to Said for the great taxi service from Marrakesh. Look no further than Chez Dar Ma, its beautiful and you wont be disappointed! Jane Keene. Cornwall. (February 2012)

We rented Allison’s whole Riad for our family for 4 nights in March. We had a lovely welcome from Allison who guided us from the bus to the Riad and gave a good intro of the town and recommendations. The Riad was very homely, nicely decorated, clean, comfortable and bright!. Even though it wasn’t that cold we enjoyed fire place in the evening and had a great dinner in the Riad one evening. Our 3 year old daughter appreciated all the space and being able to run around. The location is good and it’s a quick walk to the beach and main shopping street (the town isn’t big anyway). We enjoyed putting together our own breakfasts on the sunny roof-top terrace. Would highly recommend! Nilesh Patel. Cambridge (March 2012)

I booked the whole riad for three nights for a group of friends following a long weekend in Marrakech Chez Dar Ma and Essarouira provided the perfect contrast to end our holiday. The accommodation was spacious and comfortable and well-suited for our groups needs. Allison was a source of excellent information about the town and offered very helpful advice about the town and its amentiies. Her restaurant recommendations were all fantastic. Halimas delicious breakfasts on the roof terrace provided a great start to each day, with a plentiful selec tion of fresh and delicious items. Our stay at Chez Dar Ma provided excellent value for money and I wouldnt hesitate to recommend it to anyone thinking of visiting Essaouira. Jane Fowler. London (May 2012)
