We loved staying here. Riads can sometimes be quite dark but here lots of light streams through onto balconies and sitting areas. Wonderfully located near all the action but yet still quite and secluded. The place was immaculately clean with soft linen sheets and feathered down pillows on huge beds. Every 'apartment' has it's own fridge and kitchen but we... More

Dar Lazuli is a wonderful Moroccan riad in the heart of Essauira's ancient medina. The riad is huge - it's like stepping into a Tardis! It is beautifully decorated with vibrant colours. You can see the owners (Rachel and Nicola) have really given the riad a homely feel. Thoughtful additional apartment features include; iPod player, safe, books and games. My... More

Fabulous spot to stay in the old town, very centrally located but also quiet. Rachel (the owner) was fantastic to deal with, sent through great instructions to find it and very useful tips/recommendations on what to do & where to eat in town.. All were spot on! The on-site housekeepers are super lovely too. We stayed in the top room,... More

We went to Morocco as a big group so staying in this riad was perfect - the rooms were clean and it was in a great location by the square with restaurants and shopping on the doorstep. The owner recommended some amazing restaurants and activities and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their stay. Latifa and Vincent were ever so helpful as well... More

I stayed at Dar Lazuli with my Dad and two sisters for two nights in September and couldn't recommend it highly enough. It's absolutely beautiful and perfectly placed in Essaouira medina a stones throw from the beach and just round the corner from the buzz of the centre and some delicious restaurants. Rachel arranged for the fantastic housekeeper Rachid to... More

We have been travelling in Morocco and stopping for a rest in Essauira. As a family with 2 small kids (5 years and 1,5 years) we were very happy staying at Dar Lazuli. Everything was cool and pleasant, the house is charming and comfy and in no time we felt like home. Both Rachid and especially Latifa are open, friendly... More

We had a lovely time at Dar Lazuli appartment.The house is really charming and we were fortunate to have it to ourselves during our stay. Rachid and Latifa were very kind and welcoming. It was a brilliant location for exploring Essaouria. We visited Essaouria after a few days in Marrakech and the combination of the two places made for a... More

Travelling through the Moroccan countryside at sunset from the airport gave a real sense of getting away from it all. On our arrival, Rachel organised Latifa to cook the best ever lemon, olive and chicken tajine with delicious pastries to be eaten by the welcoming log fire. The riad is comfortable, beautiful and romantic, cleverly designed to suit both couples... More

We were 8 persons, stayed in Dar Lazuli for 5 nights and occupied the whole Riad, which was of course very convenient - to have it all for ourselves. Rachel organized the transport and cared for us from the distance. During all our stay we felt careful and discreet attention of Latifa and Rachid. Latifa kept the house perfectly clean,... More

We had a wonderful stay in Dar Lazuli for 5 days with our 3 young children and although not ideal for small people in the sense that the rooms have mezzanines and aren't adjoining it all worked fine. The location is superb. The riad was quite, very clean, comfortable and quirky in the interesting way a riad should be. Latifa... More
