Spent 2 nights in this beautiful Riad. Can't fault it. The staff were so friendly, our room was fantastic, great buffet breakfast on the terrace with stunning views out to sea. Would definitely stay here again. Loved our stay and we were sad to leave. Highly recommended

Dar L´Oussia seems amazing at first sight, a nice, little Riad, amazing rooms, breakfast at roof terrace is an unique experience. The location is amazing too, just at the entrance to Medina, 5 minutes walk from the beach. Nevertheless later you start to see the dirt under the bed and on the floor, you need to wait one hour for... More

We stayed here for 7 nights. It was our first time in Essaouira. I have mixed feelings about this place although the hotel was nice & pleasant it lacked atmosphere there was no ambience or presence of staff. Our room was tasteful but found it strange that there was just 1 socket free. We travelled with 3 kids so all... More

We left the kids behind with the family in Agadir in order to have a weekend break by ourselves. And WOW did we find the perfect place for it! We have stayed in Essaouira on many occasions, in riads and hotels - but this was BY FAR the best. It really is as nice as on all the photos. Best... More

For our first visit to Morocco we booked this Riad after looking at various reviews. It completely lived up to the Internet expectations: it looks just like all the photos! The Riad arranged taxi transfers for us between Essaouira and Marrakech, and staff were also on hand for advice about where to shop, visit, etc during our stay. The room... More

My wife and I loved every part of our journey through Morocco, but Essaouira was very special to us since we both love seaside living. Dar L’Oussia is a lovely riad located in the Essaouira Medina; it is also a short walk to the pier and the beach. When we first arrived at the riad, we were welcomed warmly with... More

We were attended by a young chap with questionable manners upon arrival but I was so enchanted by Essaouira that I decided to just ignore him. The room we had was tastefully designed and spacious, so that made up for the negative energy at the reception. The lady at the breakfast was so kind and smiling and she served us... More

We were assigned a delightfully spacious room with a lounge area and excellent bathroom facilities. Beautifully furnished and draped. The windows opened out onto the inner courtyard. Very nice indeed. Wifi was good. The hotel in general is very clean and well set up. Breakfast is served on the uncovered roof though where the meal is served is covered which... More

This Riad-style hotel is within the walls of the town of Essaouira. The location is really good with easy access to the town and sights and also to the beach, prom and harbour, which is full of fishing vessels. As is typical with Riads, the room look our onto a bright central courtyard. There is a rooftop area with loungers... More
