Essaouira was our first stop on our little November adventure to Morocco. It was great being picked up at the airport and delivered to the door of our first home at Dar Lazuli. There was just one other couple occupying the ground flat so we practically had the top of the house and terraces just to ourselves. We got the smallest top room which was just great. and with the biggest bed. very comfy. the place felt like home and you could feel was truly cared for by Latifa on a daily basis and by the owner in how it was restored. the little details like having some wood to light a fire in the room, nice warm duvet (whilst the daytime was a touch of summer, evening had a touch of autumn) and the traditional decor with a modern eye.
it's just the kind of place we like: comfortable, clean, authentic, friendly and feeling like home.
the place came recommended by a colleague and so we pass on this recommendation to others. do try the hotel next door for an extensive breakfast and view on the harbour.
