Charming small dar/riad in the Medina of Essaouira. I had the only room with a private bathroom, which was accessed via a stone spiral staircase, and was tiny and just-about functional. But the bedroom was fine, with one of the comfiest beds I've experienced in Essaouira. Breakfast was typically French/Moroccan, and would have benefitted from some eggs, but was fine.... More

This hotel is in the perfect location. Right in the middle of the medina. Close to the beach and supratours bus station. It is hard to find but as others have said look for bobs music and it's down the end of that lane. However it's not clear which door is theirs. It's the black door with the caging. Just... More

Great location, welcoming, friendly and helpfull staff. The rooms are clean, nicely decorated and spatious. Shared bathroom (for 2 rooms) was not a problem. A great place for couples budget backpacking.

The riad is in a good location down an alleyway within Essaouira's medina. The hosts were very friendly and happy to give recommendations about attractions and restaurants. Breakfast was excellent and plentiful. It was particularly nice having a special dish cooked freshly each day to compliment the standard breads, juice, coffee etc. Each day we ate a communal table and... More

The owners of the Dar Latigeo are very welcoming and make you feel at home. The rooms are beautifully, traditionally furnished, quiet and clean. In the evening, other guests often gather downstairs, share experiences of Morocco and their own lives, which is very interesting. The Dar is situated in the Medina, so that you can experience true Moroccan life first-hand.... More

We spent a couple of nights a Dar Latigeo. The place offers what you may expect for the price: a good breakfast (which can be taken at the upper terrace or in the lower flor on a shared table), clean rooms and a helpful owner who made some interesting recommendations for dinner and different day trips. However, we had a... More

Me and my friend stayed at Latigeo for 2 nights in October, and we thoroughly enjoyed it. When we arrived they had the room all made up and ready for us, even though it was before check in time. Service was great- George you are great and a good laugh! The breakfast was by far the best we've had in... More

- The strong sewage smell was very annoying - The house maid not very nice, no smile there - We were requested to pay in advance, which is very uncommon in Morocco - There is no website, and thus no map - We had a shared bathroom

Before we left we put our luggage on the ground floor to go out for an hour. During that time 800 Dirhams got stolen from one of the bags. Since the Euros were left inside, we figured it must have been one of the house maids. However, delicately addressing this issue to the owner, we never received an answer. To... More

It is very difficult to figure your way out if it is your first visit as there is no signs to guide you on what way to take. Even maps applications get lost in essaouira's narrow alleys so search "MOHAMED BEN ABDALLAH" street and once there look for the alley that has BOB MUSIC panel on its entrance, the riad... More
