“A perfect Riad in a perfect town”
Reviewed July 10, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

I went on holiday with 5 of my friends and Dar Qawi could not have been more perfect. The House was beautiful, private and comfortable with plenty of room for 6 girls. We did not want for anything at all in the house (the roof terrace being ideal for sunbathing if you don’t fancy the beach). Zara made amazing traditional breakfasts and dinner if you wanted to relax in the Riad for the evening. Essaouira is a gorgeous market town, with plenty of places to get good food, and you can make your stay as relaxing or activity based as you want with quad biking, water sports, and various other activities on your doorstep. I cannot recommend Dar Qawi enough and I will certainly be returning.

“Wonderful, wonderful!”
Reviewed July 10, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

I stayed here for the second time recently, with some friends - the riad was just as lovely, if not lovelier, than when I was here last (see earlier review). I had an absolutely heavenly time - the rooms are gorgoeus, each one having a lovely ensuite. The terrace and sitting room are just wonderful to spend time in. Zara comes and cooks a sublime breakfast every morning, and her meals in the evening (upon request) are amazing... my favourites were cous cous royale, and also the lamb tagine with vegetables. Also, her pizza and salad - ah, it's all amazing! I had such a lovely time and hope to be back again one day - highly recommended.

“Gorgeous, centrally located apartment with beautiful terrace”
Reviewed May 7, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Dar Qawi was a delightful place to stay. The rooms were beautifully decorated with eclectic Moroccan and contemporary furnishings, were light filled and peaceful. The courtyard and terrace areas are both fantastic. The courtyard is very private and a perfect place to have breakfast. The terrace overlooks the rooftops of Essaouria, and has plenty of sun lounges. We never had the opportunity to meet Sandra, however Zara and her son Redoin were perfect hosts. Redoin organised some excellent places in Essaouria for us to see, and was very helpful and welcoming. Breakfasts cooked by Zara were delicious. It was wonderful to sit in either the lounge area or the courtyard for a leisurely breakfast of eggs or fruit, Moroccan bread, jams, juice and coffee.
The location was fantastic, very central and easy to find your way around. Redoin met us at the bus station on arrival and directed us to the property. We were provided with maps and taken to a lovely place for lunch as we were hungry after the journey there. Dar Qawi was ideal for a small group of friends, and I would highly recommend the apartment.
