This is a great guest house; really friendly staff and owners. It's a little bit out of the way, about 2km off the main road, but Didier organised a rental car to be dropped off for me and it takes about 15 mins to drive to the beach in Essauoira. It was always quite tempting to just stay at the...

Two night stay, a couple with two young kids. We had a lovely time, just the right base from which to explore the area. Didier and Bernadette and the staff are lovely and made us feel very welcome. The food is great, the rooms are great, the pool is nice, there is enough to entertain the kids (donkeys, a chicken...

A lovely guesthouse or 'riad' experience, with strong Francophone African influences, in a Moroccan setting. Didier and Bernadette and their staff are very warm, welcoming and attentive hosts. You need a car to access the Villa, as it's 20mins from Essaouira, the last 5-10mins on an unsurfaced road (though a 4WD is not needed as it's only a bit bumpy,...

This place is a few minutes from Essaouira. it's a good and cool guest house owned by cool people. You have 7 suites and one pool. The food is so fresh. I tasted a very good lobster there with my friends.

I booked seven nights at Villa Daba for myself and sixteen year old daughter. We wanted some sun, relaxation and to explore this area of Morocco a little. Villa Daba is so beautiful and relaxing. Our room was big and comfortable with a large outside terrace space. We enjoyed the pool and chatting with other guests. Bernadette and Diddier and...

Lovely family run place. Nice pool and rooms. 10-15 mins from medina (and airport) by car. Very good breakfast and dinner. Didier and Bernadette made it a very relaxing stay. Children loved the place and we would love to come again.

We recently spent four days at Villa Daba on the recommendation of friends and were not disappointed. This small hotel offers oozes character with each of its rooms having a unique theme - we had the Japanese room which is light, spacious and comfortable and is situated on the upper terrace overlooking the pool. Best of all are the owners,...

We read the reviews before we booked Villa Daba and they were spot on. It is a little paradise about 8km away from Essaouira! I can not find enough good words to describe this little gem. -Bernadette and Didier are such great and lovey hosts, always helping with our enquiries and believe it or not Didier gave us his car...

Villa Daba is a little corner of paradise outside Essaouira! Bernadette and Didier are great hosts - they couldn't do enough for us - and the villa is, as Bernadette said, totally 'zen'! The rooms are well-decorated and spacious, the pool is great and the garden is a lovely place to while away your holiday hours in the sun. Overall,...

After a week roughing it on the road along the Moroccan coast, it was absolute bliss to spend a couple of days in the mini paradise which is Villa Daba. Didier and Bernadette have created a beautiful environment to kick back and relax just outside the chaos and hustle of Essaouiria. The garden with the pool and numerous lounging options...
