La Casa del Mar
Ranked #74 of 180 Essaouira B&B and Inns
Reviewed 17 February 2013

What's not to love about Casa del Mar!!, which provided us with wonderful hospitality, superb location and exceptional value. We arrived with upset stomachs after being on the road for a while, and the owner Su and her manager, Mouna, prepared us a special cleansing dinner. We really appreciated a few days in the Casa's calm and relaxed atmosphere, the beautiful retreat on the roof-top terrace while listening to the surf crashing outside the walls, and accommodating staff.

Room Tip: We were in the Mallorca room, just below the terrace.

Beautiful interiors to the rooms and communal areas here. The roof terrace has a sea view. The staff were good but did not really offer any local tips or pointers. Also, some of the neighboring properties were a bit noisy at night which woke us up a couple of times. Would recommend.

Great location, in old town Essaouira just beside the wall overlooking the sea. Narrow streets just off the main walking street with all the merchants. Little Beautiful view watching waves breaking while having breakfast on the roof terrace. Very friendly and personal atmosphere. Each room a little different touch, clean and tidy. Hotel service super, recommend to book traditional Moroccan dinner home cooked in the hotel's open kitchen.

I loved it here. Mouna and the ladies made me feel most welcome. Delicious breakfasts. Beautiful interior decor. My bed was a tiny bit hard, but I slept so solidly while I was there, it can't have mattered that much.

We arrived in rain and walked into the Casa del Mar and couldn't have been made happier by a fabulous welcome from Mouna and a roaring fire and both Mint and english tea. Beautiful large rooms and a roof terrace with a view to die for. The atlantic ocean is just over the wall and the sound of the waves crashing just made the stay more exciting and unusual and specially moroccan. We were given excellent advice on where to visit and where to eat, and I can't recommend this gorgeous riad enough.

Room Tip: Both rooms I saw were lovely.

We were so happy we stayed at La Casa del Mar, our room was perfectly spacious, clean, light, airy and comfortable. The riad was relaxed and the roof terrace was just gorgeous. We spent 3 nights here during our honeymoon and would certainly return. Great value and Mouna was very hospitable and friendly. Thank you!

Oh wow. What a place!! the interior decoration gives a very pleasant and comforting mood. The full white concept is the closest comparison to Santorini! :) The service is just wonderful...and the best part: they have a great terrace on the roof, which is just next to the beach!! so u wake up on the sound of waves...and feel the water breeze during breakfast!
on my second night I had to wake up at 6am to take pics of the beach at the first moments of sun rise from the roof... u should be able to see those on PICS! I went back to sleep right after to build up the energy to another long day in this wonderful city!

Room Tip: Only problem with our room was that the toilet was technically IN the room.. no door.. no window! th...
