    A Little Something Different

    When the intense summer heat and the hustle and bustle of Marrakech get too much, those in the know head two hours west to Essaouira. First ‘discovered’ in the Swinging Sixties by the likes of Jimi Hendrix and The Rolling Stones, this historic small fishing port on the Atlantic coast, with its pretty blue and white medina overlooking a seemingly endless golden beach, remains a firm favourite with actors, musicians and those who appreciate its laid back charm and relaxing ambiance.

    One of Essaouira’s best kept secrets is Dar Qawi, a British owned riad, in prime location within the old city walls and only five minutes walk from the beach. Step over the threshold and the tinkling of an antique alabaster fountain welcomes you into this peaceful oasis...

This was my third time in Essaouira, and my third stay at Riad Dar Qawi. What a beautiful and tranquil place it is! The stunning Riad and its surroundings create such a calm environment, and has been a perfect place for me to stay with my partner or friends. The riad is very spacious and has two roof terraces, an... more

As soon as we arrived in Essaouira I was blown away by the warmth, the colours, and the textures of the old city walls and the shabby chic wooden turquoise doors. It was like a dream! The Riad was a WOW as soon as we walked in. I stayed with 5 of my close girl friends and we felt very... more

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Excellent location and tastefully decorated. Kitchen on top floor so we could cook in if we wanted. Redoin, the housekeeper's son, was absolutely brilliant assisting and advising us with activities and day excursions, a gem! Bedrooms were a little small and each had an en-suite, the accommodation overall was charming. Really glad we were lucky enough to stay here as... more

The safe does actually work. Perhaps you didn't find the instructions? I am sorry to hear about the arm chairs... more
