I decided to have a look at a few other riads this year whilst I was in Essaouira – just in case Dar Loulema is ever full when I go to book in future. Although some I saw were lovely, none matched Loulema in my opinion, so I will just have to work my dates around their availability! This riad... More

After Marrakech, Essaouira is a relaxing way to wind down. This riad is in the centre of the city providing easy walking access to all points of the city. The rooms and rooftop tearrace were well decorated in traditional style. The staff were friendly, helpful, and always ready with a smile and a drink. Shopping for gifts was somewhat more... More

Spent two nights in May at Dar Loulema, second time we've stayed there. Loved it! Right in the medina, very convenient for restaurants etc. Wonderful welcome from the French owner and the lovely staff, who do everything possible to make your stay a success. We stayed in Mogador, which is decorated in blue and white and suited us perfectly. Delicious... More

After the hustle & bustle of Marrakech, Dar Loulema was a wonderful tranquil place to relax at the end of our holiday. We had a quirky well appointed room & enjoyed excellent breakfasts served on the lower roof terrace. On our final evening we enjoyed a delicious evening meal served in a ground floor room by a log fire. Fantastic... More

Spent 2 nights there in a double + side bed on the second floor. Excellent everything, with special mention for breakfast in the ground floor room by the fire (it was raining and on the cold side during our stay). Location is perfect, the riad is beautifully built and appointed, staff and management helfpful and friendly, so another good experience... More

Nathalie and her staff are lovely and welcoming to all their guests. The riad is beautifully decorated and the views from the roof are amazing. The location is great. When I arrived I wandered through the Medina, but then I discovered if you just follow the road to the end by the fishing docks, you can easily walk to the... More

A warm welcome from Nathalie and her charming staff awaited us. The location is certainly brilliant for exploring, and we found Essaouira very easy to get around without getting lost, unlike Marrakech! Great place to shop till you drop too! We bought from the wood co-operative, although you can buy cheaper from some of the little independents. We liked the... More

We stayed for 3 nights after staying 4 nights in Marrakech. Our room was on the 3rd floor so we had plenty of stairs to climb. However it was convenient for breakfast on the roof terrace. The bedroom was fine and had a kettle for tea/coffee, but no safe. Free WiFi was available on the 1st floor. There was no... More

This riad was in an amazingly central location and was both beautiful and inviting. The view of the town and the Atlantic Ocean from the terrace was unforgettable. Breakfast was just fine. We cannot recommend this riad enough!

We were a party of seven and virtually took over the riad. Madame and her team were charming and helpful, the rooms were enchanting and having breakfast on the rooftop was very special. We had a very delicious dinner on our last evening. Everything was perfect.
