Dar Liouba
Ranked #25 of 178 Essaouira B&B and Inns
Reviewed October 23, 2012

Essaouira was the first town where we stayed in Morocco and we felt that the Riad gave us a traditional, authentic introduction. All the staff were very helpful and friendly. Advice on where to visit and where to eat was given freely and proved to be excellent. The night that we ate in, the staff cooked our choice of food (tagine of course) which was delicious. The room was comfortable and clean, and the terrace was perfect for breakfast.

The Riad was nicely, and comfortably decorated, the staff were friendly and helpful. The roof terrace was very pretty. The location is great and the rooms were very quiet and clean. Breakfast was good. We didn't eat in the Riad but there were plenty of good restaurants nearby.

Overall a very good experience: excellent staff, especially the owner, who went out of her way to help. They have excellent recommendations for places to eat, which is something i recommend people try to leverage (all the awesome restaurants are cannot be easily found by tourists on their own). They have wine and other things in case you decide to relax back in the hotel. Very hastle-free stay. The hotel has a rooftop, which not many other hotels seem to have in Essaouira - nice for evening and morning relaxation.

Room Tip: Dont be afraid to ask for a free room upgrade - they may give it to you, if they have some available

We had a wonderful, relaxed stay here. Great location and great hospitality. The Rhiad was very bright and spacious and we enjoyed the views and sitting out on the roof terrace. Despite warnings in the travel guides about the wind on the beach, this was not experience in September during our visit.

We really loved Essaouira and Dar Liouba made the holiday extra fantastic. Breakfast on the roof terrace was delicious and changed daily. Rooms were so spacious and perfect for what we wanted. It was frustrating we couldn't stay longer - would have preferred a few more days here! We will hopefully be returning for another trip next summer and will certainly try and book a room at Dar Liouba again!

Room Tip: Ocean or sky rooms are light and spacious!

A great place (central, but not noisy), and a great staff. Dar Liouba enabled me to rediscover the medina with my whole familly in perfect conditions. The bedrooms look great and are cosy as well. And we loved the breakfast on the roof

We have just come back from Morroco and it was a lovely Riad to escape to away from the sweltering heat in Marrakech. Patricia and her staff were very welcoming, rooms were very clean and great location, it is a warm and welcoming home. This Riad was recommended to me by a friend, i would definitely recommend Dar Liouba!
