We traveled to Essaouria from Marrakech via hired car. This Riad is in the walled Medina, which is a walking area only. We entered the Medina from the main parking lot, which is opposite from the water. Take the third right, then the first right, then the second right. Sounds daunting, but a porter quickly loaded our luggage onto a... More

I travelled to Essaouira with my girlfriend, we got to the central bus station and it was a total caos getting to the city center, once there a man asked us what were we looking for, so we told him the street where Dar Liouba is and he took us there, for free. Entering this Dar was like getting into... More

Our stay at Dar Liouba has been excellent. The owners are such nice people and they do their best to fulfill al your wishes. Upon arrival, we were welcomed with tea and information about the city. Our room was spacious, very clean, light and had a nice bed. The lobby is also decorated beautifully and feels very "homesy". Breakfast can... More

Location: Perfectly centred in the medina, it's a good compromise between being close to the beach (5 minute walk if you take the right route) and the 2 main streets in Essaouira. The Riad is situated perfectly so that it feels cut off from the noise and hub bub of the medina, yet not enough so that you feel isolated.... More

Dar Liouba is conveniently located near the center of the Medina. It is a wonderful cozy place to escape to pace of the medina. The owners work incredibly hard to ensure your comfort and enjoyment. The rooms are beautifully appointed. The lobby is cozy. And, the food is amazing thanks to Chef Youssef and the kitchen staff.

Upon arrival, we were presented with maps and brochures with information about the city, and suggestions as to what to do and what to see, including how to get to the various places. The staff was very helpful, chatty and eager to make our stay there as good as possible. This made me feel very at home in the riad.... More

About the riad, has a lot of light inside and the location is totally convenient, its only a few steps away from the harbour,... More

We really enjoyed our stay at dar Liouba, Patricia was a kind and professional hostess. The breakfast was very nice and our room (lavande) was lovely with dual aspect windows. You felt like you were staying more in a private home and were well looked after with a night porter and funny, engaging cook and good kitchen team. I would... More
