We stayed for a week in this charming place. Dar Lazuli have been decorated tastefully with attention to details. The owners with the staff manage to ensure guests feel relaxed and well looked after. We loved our daily breakfast prepared by Latifa and we were fortunate to sample Madeleine’s fig jam. The place was very clean, our room was cleaned... More

Our stay in Dar Lazuli was wonderful. It's right in the center of everything, with an incredible view of the sea and the medina from the roof terraces. The whole dar is decorated beautifully. Rachid and Fatima were wonderful hosts, so kind and helpful. We stayed in the Ghibli room and I have never experienced a more comfortable bed. The... More

We booked Dar Lazuli because of the great reviews on Tripadvisor but the accommodation disappointed us. The price was good, the communication with the owners before arrival great and the staff super friendly. The Dar itself was in a good location but the alley towards the house always smelled of urine and garbage. Not a big turn on. Inside the... More

Dar Lazuli is ideally placed on the edge of the Medina, close to the harbour and the beach. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff - breakfast was served on the terrace, dinner was beside an open fire, and every request for help was no problem.

Communication with the owners Jean-Marc and Madeleine was faultless from beginning to end. Rachid has a beautiful smile indeed, and his wife Latifa was warm, friendly and conscientious. Everybody was always quick to response with queries and the language barrier was not an issue when we needed help. Lots of attention to detail and charming little touches in a house... More

This was our first visit to Essaouira and I have to say it was absolutely fantastic. The riad was just perfect for my family and I. The Keepers of the riad were all such lovely people and very helpful too. The location of the riad was just right. Everything was within a short walk away... the beach, restaurants and souks...

This was my second visit to Dar Lazuli - I had to visit again after being so impressed during my first trip to Essaouira. We hired the whole riad for a group of 7 of us and once again, it couldn't have been better. The best location in the heart of the medina, the riad is beautifully decorated in modern... More

The Riad is huge with a nice roof terrace set over 3 tiers, a perfect sun trap. Very hospitable hosts who cooked us food and kept the place spotless, would highly recommend to a friend. The town is lovely and perfect for a relaxing break
