The Riad itself was nice as you can see from the photo of our bedroom. However it seemed a little on the expensive side to me (85 euros for double room) and I have to say that after our tremendously personalised experiences everywhere else in Morocco, the fact that the Riad was stylishly furnished, well located etc could not compensate...

Enjoyed two nights staying at this lovely Dar in the heart of Essouira. James the host, and his staff are very hospitable and helpful and arranged a good driver to take us back to Marrakesh. We had been spoilt at our riad in Marrakesh with respect to our breakfasts so were slightly disappointed with that provided at Dar Ness but...

After being let down by Jack's Appartments just before arrival in Essaouira, I booked Dar Ness and had an amazing time there. The Dar is in the perfect location - next to the majority of shops, cafes, restaurants and a 2 minute walk to the beach. The rooms are large and tastefully furnished with amazing showers. The staff are friendly...

Stayed here with a friend for 4 nights in May 2007. The location of the riad is excellent, adjacent to the main square (including the excellent Taros bar next door) and very close to the historic parts of Essaouira as well as the beach. All rooms are clean and tastefully and individually decorated; try and stay on the first floor...

Stayed here for 2 nights at the beginning of April. One word - brilliant. The location is possibly one of the best in the town - right next to the main square, the ramparts of the fort, the port and 3 mins walk to the beach. The rooms are spotless - and the breakfast outstanding. Suggest eating breakfast on the...

I would endorse entirely the views of the two previous reviewers. My friend and I stayed there for two nights, paying around 48 pounds sterling each for a twin-bedded room for the two nights, inclusive of taxes and breakfast. We found the riad delightful and the staff equally so. Our most comfortable room was a reasonable size and was tastefully...

The Riad is a centre of calm and well located. It is very stylishly and tastefully decorated but not in an over the top way. The rooms and the bathrooms are large. The terasse has a good view and is a wonderful place to relax in the day. The staff were very helpful. Breakfast was good too. And all for...

Dar Ness is an excellent Riad in the centre of Essaouira. James the French owner was really helpful before we arrived and arranged for a very friendly taxi driver to pick us up from the airport in Marrakech. The room was spacious and clean and very tastefully decorated. The Riad itself is beautiful, set around a courtyard. It is bang...
