Casa Lila is a perfect oasis in the busy streets of the Medina in Essaouira. Its beautiful, with lovely decor, and its very comfortable with fantastic staff. We really enjoyed our break away from the winter blues there and the Hammam and Spa too. Our traditional meal was delicious, and we got great advise on where to visit and which... More

We stayed over Christmas at Casa Lila and were a little sad when we left after 4 days. This riad is just gorgeous and even though in the heart of the Medina, it was so unbelievably peaceful, yet just perfect in every way! The staff were the friendliest and most animated we had during our time in Morocco. The owners... More

We (partner, nine-year-old child, and me) stayed at Casa Lila for two nights. It is absolutely gorgeously-decorated and our room (Ivoire) was no exception. It is also very central, but we heard no noise at all in our room. Best points: the beautiful decor, including a lovely bath, the lovely terrace for breakfast, and the central location. Only niggles: our... More

We stayed as a group of girlfriends in this Riad for 3 nights and you cannot fault anything. We have been amazingly greeted by the owners Fanfan and Michel who sorted us a great deal of trouble when we decided to go for x2 rooms instead of the big suite apartment. That flexibility has been greatly appreciated! Each Riad is... More

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

We had an amazing stay at Casa Lila! Every single staff member we met was friendly and accommodating!! Even the other guests were happy!! We met many guests who come back yearly to visit the Riad! The owners are a delightful couple who have re-done the house. The rooms are cute and well polished. We arrived to a room with... 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
