After a hetic but very enjoyable few days in Marrakech this was a wonderful change. We have travelled to Essaouira for many years and have always managed a visit there. Go to 8 dirham coffee shop at the end of the beach where the camels are.

An incredible building to stay in. Clean rooms with wifi and lots of hot water. Friendly welcome with mint tea. Lovely breakfast- the hosts even got up extra early to prepare breakfast for us when we had to check out early in the morning. Couldn't have asked for more. Essaouira is wonderful!!

Very nice building, with an exquisite decoration. The structure of the building, around a central octogonal stair is superb.The staff is very professional and helpful, and Patrice (we assume that she is the owner) was very friendly. The possibility of having breakfast in the terrace is very nice, and we did it even it was winter. The rooms have an... More

We returned to the Dar Liouba after 5 years and were delighted to discover that it is still as beautiful and hospitable as before. It is well-placed in the heart of the medina. You can have breakfast on the roof in the sun, walk through the souk, and be at the lovely old port and beach in ten minutes. The... More

Spotlessly clean rooms. Nicely decorated throughout. Friendly staff. Beautiful rooftop terrace with a slice of a view of the ocean. Essaouira is tiny. So it's easily just on the edge of being in the middle of everything.

Tucked away in a nook in the old markets.... That's the best part! An ancient raw market, then a GEM of a place! Super super staff! Yousef was so hospitable along with the rest of the staff. The owner came out to personally meet and greet me and make sure all my needs were met. She really cared and emailed... More

A charming, reasonably-priced riad in the heart of the medina only a short walk from the sites, souks and port. The rooms were tastefully decorated, and perfectly clean. Yusef’s appearance each morning brought a smile to our faces, and breakfast on the roof is lovely. We actually enjoyed our stay enough that we changed our plans to stay an extra... More

We arrived in Swira with an apartment booked, but it didn't quite do it for us, so after one night we cast around for somewhere bright, welcoming and nicely Moroccan in an unchallenging way. We were so lucky to find this. It's a lovely tall Riad on four floors plus terrace, built round a central staircase, flooded with light from... More

The living room of the place is unique and nice but that's just about it for the Riads structure. Room was extremely small and had no window viewing the outside. Room walls are thin so any person passing can hear what you are talking or doing inside the room. Generally Morrocco is farly cheap but in compare to other places... More

Dar Liouba is a beautiful little Riad in the heart of busy Essaouira Medina, short walk from Bab (Gate) Marrakech. For the foreigner, like myself not familiar the the concept of Medina at first, it wasn't easy to locate ...seek more accurate directions before arriving. Spotlessly clean and well managed, it is central to everything you would like to explore... More
