About Dar Al Bahar

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 - now a ruin - , which formerly provided flour for the city and the back country. 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!

We are thrilled to inform you that, during October 13-17, 2012, the town of Essaouira witnessed the filming of parts of the third season of "Game of Thrones", the popular medieval fantasy series. On October 15, some of the scenes were filmed on our street and near Dar Al Bahar, both almost magically transformed in a medieval set by the crafty crew, some of them also being our guests in the hotel. For the current and future fans of the series, we share some of our photos of the stars, extras and set, and, for those of you wishing to experience the "Game of Thrones" atmosphere, we look forward to having you as our guests.

Remarks: Please take note that, at the establishment, we accept only cash: euros, US dollars, GB pounds and dirhams.

Rates do NOT include tourist taxes applied by the city (23 dirhams/person/night), to be settled also at the front desk.

Cancellation fee: 7-14 days before arrival 50% of the total amount, less than 7 days before arrival 75% of the total amount and for no - show or cancellation during stay 100% of the total amount.
