We came across this place after already having booked another Riad. We loved it so much, we left the Riad we were staying in after the first night and moved into a junior suite at Dar L'Oussia. What a wonderful and romantic experience! Spacious living room with king bed and an incredible luxury double sink bathroom with Venetian style walls,...

The place is nice enough, if you get the right room, but the staff ranged from unhelpful to downright rude. When we first checked in we were given a room we later discovered was over the hamam. The room was VERY hot, and the floor felt like an oven. Given that it was nearly 40 degrees C outside, we complained,...

The riad is in a great location - easy walking to the beach, medina and port. We stayed for one night and were upgraded to a suite (was booked on a double room). The room was huge, with a large bathroom as well. There is no air-conditioning - could be because there is no need for one in Essaouira since...

I really liked staying in this Riad. It was more comfortable than the one we stayed at in Fes, except that the bed was hard. We learned that that's how Moroccans like it. The windows all had a glass window that could be opened. We stayed in room 14 and had a small balcony onto the narrow street. There was...

We spent 4 nights in this lovely riad. Ours was a very adequate de luxe room, but some of the suites were beautiful - worth upgrading. The riad is on 4 levels with no lift, so not suitable for people who have mobility difficulties. Weather permitting breakfast is taken on rooftop, which is very nicely presented with some comfy sunbeds...

We loved staying in this Riad. Great restaurant and very helpful staff. Perfectly placed in the medina and the rooms are lovely. Breakfast was a little boring. Fruit not fresh and always the same. Every day ! That's my only criticism really.

“All room sizes are very nice, but the junior suite is the best. Pick one with numerous windows, so the natural light comes in.”
