“Look no further for perfect stay in Essaouria”
Reviewed August 16, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

This is a wonderful house, easy booking excellent communication with owner and everything just as described. The owners arranged a transfer from Marrakech and everything was done according to plan.
We spent two weeks here and enjoyed lovely breakfasts and dinners prepared by the housekeeper for a really reasonable price. The house itself is beautifully decorated, cool in the heat of summer and very relaxing several different floors each with their own bedroom and bathrooms so if you are a large family or group of friends there is plenty of space and privacy. The roof terrace is a great place to eat or relax. The house is a short walk from both medina and beach but not in the old part of the town so a little quieter as far as location is concerned and also we felt very safe. I spent a long time choosing accommodation in Essaouria and personally do not feel you could get any better and excellent value for money!

Thank you for your kind words. We are pleased that you had a wonderful time. We have made some small improvements in 2015. There is now a new much larger television in the salon. We have purchased some fresh new linen and pillows to ensure everyone has a comfortable nights sleep and the roof terrace is now fully lit with new lighting so our guests can enjoy dinner and relaxing on the roof terrace into the evening.

It was very easy to book this apartment.The owner was very friendly and approachable.Everything was as we arranged,including the airport pickup. On our apartment we've had a warm welcome and a dinner waiting for us,as arranged.
The apartment is very neat and tidy and very closely located to the centre. There is a lovely balcony overlooking the town,t's a great place to eat and relax.
This was our second time round in this apartment and no doubt we will be returning again.

“Perfect base for a family in Essaouira.”
Reviewed February 5, 2014 for a stay in December 2013

person found this review helpful

This was our first time in Essaouira , we have 3 children (2, 6 and 8) so chose to stay here as we wanted a decent amount of space for them. It turned out to be a great base, close to the old town and a short walk to the beach for our children (a definate buggy push for the younger one). There was plenty of space and bedroom options and the roof terrace was a fantastic retreat after the days activities to catch the evening sun. Carima was a delight as was her food and breakfasts (although her english is very limited - it's best to communicate through Fouad, who looksafter you and the house during your stay). Fouad is super helpful and happy to help with what ever issue you might have. Street noise (kids playing football) in the evenings was sometimes an issue when they played until late but only on holidays and because our kids don't go to bed particularly late. But if you are out and about this doesn't matter. We had brilliant weather!!! In the 8 days we were there, there was one day sunny but very windy when we did a camel trek - brilliant, and another half day when it was slightly cold. The rest of the time was sunny, and not too windy, and really quite hot! Perfect for the beach!!!!!
All in all a great success.

“Excellent”

person found this review helpful

Both the accommodation and the breakfasts and the dinner which we had were excellent and extremely good value for money. The riad is within easy reach of the medina and beach but very peaceful and quiet. Our daughter, son-in-law and children who at the last minute could not accompany us missed a real treat.

Very nice location close to the Medina and the ocean by feet. Rooms are clean and the terrace on the roof is appreciated. Thanks to Karima (cook) and Fouad (manager) for their good services at a very good price.

“Lovely flat in Essaouira”

Dar Doughri is a beautifully and tastefully equipped holiday flat just outside the wall of the medina of Essaouria. The location was ideal for us, and much quieter and more relaxed than within the medina itself. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone.

“Lovely relaxing stay”
Reviewed May 8, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

Stayed here two weeks ago. Had an amazingly relaxing time. If you want big hotels, shops etc don't bother. The house is as advertised nd very spacious. In a great location, but within walking distance of everything, but if you feel really lazy the petite taxis are about 60p per journey. We did not do any of the offered activities as we hve probably done them all before but Faoud will organise everything for you. The roof terrace was wonderful, very private and great for breakfast and evening meals, oh and sunbathing. Everyone raves about Karima's food and rightly so, it is superb. We ate out at a French restaurant in the Medina and paid £120 for 3 people and all agreed that Karima's food was far better. So ate in the rest of the week, the fish BBQ was lovely and the onion and raisin tagine was gorgeous (I cook a mean lamb tagine courtesy of allrecepies but this was fantastic). Karima will come in and prepare breakfast for 25dhr about £2 per head, so much food and served on the roof terrace a great place to start the day.
We would thoroughly recommend this rental, Fiona is lovely to deal with and will arrange everything from the taxi to Karima cooking a meal for your first night. Wind surfers will love the beaches and breezes. Go here before it is developed as it surely will be. Thank you Fiona and Lindsey.
