Dar Al Bahar is certainly the name it deserves: the house by the sea.
Built on the ramparts of the city of Essaouira in the "San Dion" area, she faces the ocean and its trade winds. From the terrace the view is one of constant movement, winds breaking against the rocks of the coast, offering an amazing spectacle. From there, you can also enjoy the panoramic view over the medina with its northern fort of the ancient Scala and the Mellah (the former Jewish quarter). In the distance, you can see the sand dunes, which actually touch the northern outskirts of the city.
Jean-Claude and Lise, a french-dutch couple, have completely renovated this house which was built at the turn of the last century. At that time, this part of Essaouira was much more animated thanks to the presence of an authentic windmill which formerly provided flour for the city and the back country. At this place, a new hotel has been built but the street name remained: Touahen, which means mill in Arabic.
Today, the peacefulness of this place is only disturbed by breaking waves and shrieking seagulls.
You will certainly have a pleasant stay in Dar Al Bahar !

Really nice warm welcoming team, perfect location in the old medina, and awesome view during breakfast on the ocean and the skala. The rooms are very clean, and decorated with taste. I recommend Dar Al Bahr to anyone who wishes to have a pleasant stay in Essaouira.
Wir haben es nicht gleich gefunden, die Begrüßung war unspektabel.
We had a wonderful new years eve on the terasse of this fantastic accomodation. It is quite easy to find, the room was super nice and the breakfast, which you can choose to have on the terasse or the dining area was great. Afterwards we heard from friends that we stayed in the best place in Essaouira and we're not going to argue with that.
The staff were very nice and accommodating. Our room was very tiny but the spacious terrace made up for it - such an incredible view!
We werden hartelijk verwelkomd. We konden van kamer wisselen omdat we graag zeezicht wilden. Onze kamer was zeer schoon, overal in de riad stonden verse bloemen, rozen. Het ontbijt was zeer verzorgd en op het dakterras met geweldig uitzicht over de medina en de zee. Het personeel was zeer vriendelijk en behulpzaam.
I had a wonderful stay at Dar Al Bahar in Essaouira - the location is perfect, the room was comfortable and well decorated, and the staff were very helpful and friendly. Falling asleep to the sound of crashing waves and waking up for a delicious breakfast on the rooftop terrace was a dream come true.
