From the welcome by Patrica to the departure everything was perfect. We really enjoyed our long weekend here and will certainly return. The riad is easy to find even though it is right in the medina surrounded by local families who couldn't have been friendlier.The breakfast was good and the dinner tagging excellent.

Very friendly, clean and relaxing hotel in the heart of the Medina. A great place to relax and switch off after a great day exploring Essaouira. The staff made us very welcome and were really helpful. Breakfast could have been a little more interesting, but I have fed that back. Overall thoroughly recommend Dar Liouba. Btw bed was very comfortable...... More

Patricia was the host par excellence, taking us by the hand, prior to our arrival, to introduce us to the people, Medina and environs of Essaouira and while in her house, helping us to enjoy our brief stay there to the full. Thank you Patricia.

Couldn't have chosen a better place to stay after travelling around hot and dusty Morocco for 2 weeks. For me, when it is hot (it's been over 40 degrees in Marrakech this week) there is nothing more important than air flow in your accommodation, and so many places are stifling as they are so closed up. At Dar Liouba, this... More

Last stop on a 2 week trip to Morocco. What a great way to finish. Beautiful. Took a lot of pictures of interior. Breakfast was great. Had a wonderful dinner also. Staff, room, location, food all amazing. Loved it

Dar Liouba is hidden away in a small alleyway in the medina of Essouira - it is a place of peace, calm, tranquillity and beauty. My my short stay was absolutely memorable. The staff were welcoming and helpful. The attractive design of the hotel was a wonderful discovery. The rooms are all individually named and appointed with a colour theme... More

We decided to have a last minute trip to Essaouira and what a godsend this was. We booked 2 nights at Dar Liouba a charming intimate riad run by a lovely french lady with perfect english and it was one of the most relaxing weekends we have had in a long time. The riad is well positioned in the medina... More

This was our first visit to Essaouira and our third trip to Morocco, previous trips have always included a stay in Marrakech. Essaouira is totally different in that it is very relaxed, there is minimal hassle from sellers in the market and the roads and alley ways are so much cleaner, wider and less crowded. It makes it a far... More

Dar Liouba is filled with light and has very well-appointed rooms. Breakfast is excellent. The terrace (5th floor) is large, has nice furniture although the view is modest. We were in 2 different rooms (since our 1st room wasn't available for the 3rd night we wanted) and we very much appreciated the large cupboards and shelving to arrange our things.... More

We (my wife and I) stayed just two nights at Dar Liouba in early April - a bit of a flying visit as it was our first time in Morocco and we were checking out quite a few places to know where to come back to. On that note I'm quite certain that if / when we return to Essaouira... More
