“Loved Dar Qawi”
Reviewed 19 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We had a wonderful time at Dar Qawi and Essaouira. We loved everything about this riad, it was beautifully decorated, had comfy beds and pillows, spotlessly clean, we enjoyed chilling in the living room upstairs, having plenty of bathrooms and lots of space so that we weren't always under each other's feet.

Zara's breakfasts and dinners were an absolute treat and Redouin was lovely and very helping showing us the shortcuts through the medina and to the beach.

Kia provided us with extensive notes about the riad and Essaouira and communication with her prior to the trip was excellent. I would definitely return to Dar Qawi for me it's the only place to stay in Essaouira, I don't normally give 5 stars for accommodation but I loved this road.

Liked best: The interior decor was very cool and calming. Also the Nespresso machine!
Liked least: Perhaps the lack of microwave in the kitchen to reheat Zara's generously proportioned meals!

“Dar Qawi, a Riad with the WOW factor”
Reviewed 5 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Our first visit to Essaouira via Marrakech and we loved it and the icing on the cake was the beautiful riad we stayed in, Dar Qawi has been thoughtfully and tastefully furnished to a high standard and ticks all the boxes for a comfortable and relaxing holiday. Fresh flowers, towels and robes along with bottled water in each bedroom, breakfasts discreetly prepared by Zara the housekeeper every morning, all made for a wonderful experience. The riad is ideally located for exploring Essaouira being just minutes away from the centre of the medina,busy harbour, great restaurants and beach. For a modest cost, Zara will provide an evening meal, we can certainly recommend her tagines! Sandra, the agent for Dar Qawi was welcoming and handled our transfers efficiently, Zara's son Redouin was always available if required to arrange trips and activities etc, The friendliness and help of all made for a truly relaxing stress free holiday.
