We arrived in Essaouira by coach, and did take a taxi, but I can easily be walked (10 mins). The approach is down a narrow alley , there was a whiff of cat urine in the air. The Riad was clean, but felt a little damp I guess the sea spray. We stayed 2 nights. The location is great for... More

Any needs are fullfilled, always welcoming, friendly and helping Nathalie and all stuff. Ambience, local culture relfection, authenticity - everything made our stay in... More

We stayed here in February for 7 nights as part of a friend's birthday celebration. Nathalie and her staff team were great - from the warm welcome, beautiful individualised rooms, breakfast on the terrace (fresh fruit and pancakes always works for me), cocktail hour and the central location - it's just a perfect place to stay. We had a wonderful... More

We stayed with a group of friends for a week at the end of February. We did not know Dar Loulema, it was a recommendation - but what a great find! I cant recommend it highly enough for the care taken, the warmth of the welcome, the attractiveness of the rooms and overall ambience. I would book there again without... More

My friend and I shared a room for 4 nights here. It was just perfect for us. Firstly, the people at the riad are lovely. I may not have the names exactly spelt right, but Fahima, Karima (who have been there since it opened some 13 years I think, which says a lot about it) and Mohammed were so welcoming,... More

I decided to have a look at a few other riads this year whilst I was in Essaouira – just in case Dar Loulema is ever full when I go to book in future. Although some I saw were lovely, none matched Loulema in my opinion, so I will just have to work my dates around their availability! This riad... More

After Marrakech, Essaouira is a relaxing way to wind down. This riad is in the centre of the city providing easy walking access to all points of the city. The rooms and rooftop tearrace were well decorated in traditional style. The staff were friendly, helpful, and always ready with a smile and a drink. Shopping for gifts was somewhat more... More
