NEW: Check out Dar 91 in the Desert!


We rent Dar 91 on a self-catering basis, but our staff are on-hand to help you throughout your stay. Daily cleaning, fresh bedding, towels and a ‘welcome pack’ of tea, coffee and other household essentials are all included in the price. If you book direct with us, we offer you a daily delivery of fresh breakfast ingredients.

Before your stay we are happy to help you think through your travel plans, including how to achieve the right balance between Essaouira and other destinations. We can arrange airport transfers (we take no commission for this) and can advise on public transport and car hire.

We can also help you organise local activities and our staff can provide evening meals, hammam trips and babysitting (all extra, paid locally).


We welcome children at discounted rates; those under 5 stay free. We have a travel cot and bedding, and in Wahed there’s a small selection of games. Please note that Dar 91 has high terraces and lots of stairs.

Disabled access

Unfortunately, due to the structure of the building, we have been unable to make Dar 91 wheelchair accessible.

Stay in

Far better than a riad, where you’ve got no privacy at all - we loved being able to close ourselves away but still peep out through the shutters and see life going on from a distance.
