We were looking so forward to having a bath when we arrived in Essaouira given that we had felt chilled during our entire time in Morocco . . . chilled but so blessed to be experiencing such an amazing country. Our room here in Casa Lila had a bathtub and it was made of beautiful glazed concrete (I believe). Our... More

I stayed at Casa Lila for 3 nights nights and it was simply perfect! I was traveling with my mom and we rented the apartment which was so charming and big enough for us to have separate space with a fantastic room in the middle. Not only is Essaouira a must if in Morocco but if you're going to go,... More

Essaouira has a bustling charming medina, and casa lila is the perfect place to explore it from. As soon as you enter, everything is calm and quiet. the staff are so lovely, and helpful. Loved every minute.

This Riad is a vision in beauty, tranquility, and superb service. From the moment you step in from the street, you are as enveloped in tlc and genteel living. The room is gorgeus, there is fresh rose petals on my bed, scented oil lamps, silk cushions and an open fireplace. In this bed i sleep better than at home. At... More

Everything was really good. We would definitely return. We were upgraded free of charge, given a welcome tea. It is very close to everything, and they went through the map and wrote were everything was. Beautiful rooms, helpful, friendly staff. Best breakfast, very accommodating of my food allergies. Had a free drinks and nibbles night with the owners one night.... More

Casa Lila is amazing! It felt like a real treat. They upgraded us to a bigger room at no charge, and the Rose suite was phenomenal! I loved the bright colors and the design of Casa Lila, and how it felt both old/antique and new/modern at the same time. In the room was the most amazing bath, part of the... More

Location - 5 minutes from bus station, 5 minutes from beach, in the heart of the cool Medina (where you want to be) 3. Breakfast - more than adequate, although on 2 occassions, my requests for more fruit... More
