After our wonderful stay 2 years ago, we come back with other friends in our favorite B&B ! It's still the retreat we love to stay at, as Mireille and Jerome are fantastic hosts!! The dinners are the family holidays gathering we need... We love!! Essaouira without Dar Diamar won't be Essaouira. The house is out of the touristic zone...

Dar Diamar is a beautiful place to stay, about 20 to 30 minutes drive from Essaouira. It has stunning views over low hills, and wonderful gardens. Very peaceful and relaxing. The building itself is beautiful too, with a fantastic design and attention to detail. There are some nice little walks that can be done from the door. Jerome and Mireille...

We spent a week at Dar Diamar, and loved it. Jérome and Mireille are first class hosts, taking their role to heart and providing a unique experience. The property is beautiful and was designed from the ground up for guests. We spent hours in and around the pool, as well as in surrounding gardens: resting in hammocks, reading under the...

Dar Diamar is a stunning place to stay. Beautiful rooms, fabulous pool and wonderful views. It's located about 15 minutes via car from Essaouira and after the hustle and bustle of The Medina, it's the perfect place to unwind. What makes it particularly special is the wonderful hosts and the amazing food. Mireille and Jerome made us feel so welcome...

I stayed at Dar Diamar for two nights with a group of friends and we absolutely loved this place. The lovely hosts created an European/oriental paradise where you feel at home right away. We were welcomed late in the evening with an extraordinary menu at the terrace right under an old olive tree, charming conversations and great moroccan wine. The...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A few kilometres from Essaouira and protected from the strong north winds, Dar Diamar overlooks the hills of Heharta. Its elevated position offers views of the Atlas mountains as well as glints of the Atlantic Ocean. Set in one hectare of walled gardens with century old olive trees, this Maison d'Hote is a fine example of local craftsmanship using tradition and materials in a harmonious dialogue with an architecture reminiscent of Frank Lloyd Wright. We apreciate good food and we alternate Morrocan and French cooking. Most of the time meals are served under the great olive tree, close to the fish and water turtles. The large overflow swimming pool (12m x 6m) has a pool house for shade and coolness. ... more   less
