It was such a nice place you can feel like you are staying at home. But it was really hard to find. Breakfast was poor there was just jam and bread but we had our breakfast in terrace they have such a nice terrace you can see ocean.

Was hard to find at first but when we arrived it was nice. Room was okay but there was a damp smell. It was very close to the sea and was very refreshing on the terrace. Good location and very peaceful. Didn't see the manager whilst we were there however the ladies that worked there were nice and made a... More

We cannot confirm the current high-level ratings of this guest house as there were several severe quality issues: 1. Our room was humid and we could see a long stream of mould on the edge of the ceiling. Thus, there was an awful smell in the whole room despite venitlation (room "Cabrera"). 2. After reclamation, the manager of the guest... More

Hello, I was sorry to read your review, and I write in response. About a week before your visit we had a burst pipe 2 floors up and unfortunately some water came down through the 2 levels. It was repaired but the wooden ceilings got wet in a couple of places. In the medina it can take a while for... More

La Casa del Mar was exactly as I'd hoped: quiet, bright, airy and good value. The ladies who worked there were lovely and very relaxed. The rooftop terrace is great - often no one is up there, so it's a good spot to take a book and chill out. I didn't particularly enjoy getting hassled down the tiny bazaar street... More

We stayed here for a couple of days to wind down after traveling throughout Morocco. The great thing about the riad is the location and on the rooftop you have a view of the ocean. Its nice to have breakfast there and listen to the waves. Our room was cute and well decorated. Unfortunately, I must agree with some of... More

I'm so glad we booked this lovely riad. We stayed for five nights and loved it! Amazing rooms, breakfasts, terrace, and lounge area. Go to the alcohol shop and by a bottle of wine, stick it in the fridge and enjoy a drink before dinner on the roof terrace. Mouna and her staff were fantastic from start to finish. Mouna... More

A wonderful, peaceful retreat in the heart of the Medina . My daughter and I stayed here for 3 nights early July. Organised by Mouna (who can organise anything you require during your stay in Essouira!)a “barrow boy”, guided us through the narrow streets of the old town from our taxi to the front door of La Casa del Mar,...

There were highlights in each city but the most relaxing stint of my holiday was La Casa del Mar and its proximity to the water. I stayed in the Ibiza Room, but no parties here, just the sound of the ocean. The terrace, just one flight up from my room overlooked the coastline and was the PERFECT place for breakfast... More

I booked the entire beach house for my 40th birthday. When we arrived we couldn't believe how beautiful the communal area was in the ground floor. Open fire, vases of fresh roses, lovely chill out space ... We were so impressed. Then we saw the rooms and we truly felt like we were in a beautiful beach house. All the... More

We have just enjoyed a wonderful stay at La Casa. We were lucky to have the top room - Mallorca, with the sound of the sea lulling us to sleep. The room was beautiful - enormous bed, and everything very - and a hot shower! (not everywhere can manage that) . The ladies who looked after us were so attentive,... More
