After the hustle and bustle of Marrakech, we spent 4 nights in Dar Lazuli, and it was amazing. It was a home away from home, with all the comforts you could want, from decent pillows, massive bed, to ipod docs, and a kitchen with everything you might need. Rachid and Latifa were wonderful, helping with suggestions of where to go - Les Jardins de la Villa Maroc was a great tip, and a perfect way to spend our last day in Essaouira soaking up the sun by a gorgeous pool. Latifa did a great job in tidying up after me (!), and the apartment was spotless. We spent most evenings enjoying the sunset from the roof terrace with a gin in hand - doesn't get much better than that! The approach to Dar Lazuli is a bit dark, it's down a short passageway, but it's in a great, central location and there's absolutely no need to feel intimidated, and if you ever did, there's a night guardian on duty, who was really friendly. I'd also recommend visiting Taros - great bar with live music, and wonderful sunset views. All in all a fabulous holiday!
