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... More

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,... More

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,... More

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... More

The Villa Daba is a very nice hotel some kilometers south from Essaouira, a very warm and welcoming environment with Didier and Bernadette as the perfect hosts: genuinely friendly, very good tips for finding the right things to do in Essaouira and the wider area, and offering a top cuisine - at a level of quality which you will not...

We stayed here at Villa Daba in July 2013 and I've been meaning to write a review since, which I've never done before. This place had a wonderful energy to it thanks to the lovely owners. It's extremely relaxing and the food is amazing. I also had one of the best massages I've ever had here. Loved it and highly... More

We arrived on the Sunday afternoon to a very friendly greeting by Giles & Brigitte who were house sitting whilst the owners were away. Brigitte was very courteous in offering us a meal when normally the kitchen is closed, but we were disappointed with the quality for the price. However, although not Moroccan themed, our room was spacious and comfortable... More
