Casa Lila is exactly how I had imagined a riad to be. Right in the centre of the medina, but completely sheltered from the chaos in the streets outside. The furnishings are beautiful, shabby chic, with creative (subdued) lighting, plants, and rose petals strewn on the towels and beds each evening. Each room has a different colour theme - we were in ivory and rose petal. Both were lovely in different ways, although ivory did have a very small bath in the middle of the room. Breakfasts were served on the roof terrace, weather permitting, and were fresh and delicious. There is a beauty salon where I had the best massage I have ever had! What really made Casa Lila special was the staff, however - they were without exception charming, helpful and friendly. There were some irregularities in the plumbing (a leaking sink) but this in no way detracted from a great experience. I would thoroughly recommend Casa Lila and would love to return.

Room Tip: We stayed in two twin bedded rooms. Both were quiet, placed round a lovely central courtyard covered when the weather demanded. Rosebud was lovely and both were beautifully decorated and furnished, but Ivoire had a small bath in the middle of the room, without screen or doors. Perhaps a screen (as this is a twin bedded room) would be appropriate.

À vey Nice Riad in The center of Essaouira. The staf makes you veel very welcome. Our room (The green room) was à very sweet and romantic place. The breakfast served on the roof of Casa Lila is prepared fresh every day. À special recommandation for Hyat, she has her own beauty salon in Casa Lila. We tried several massages, all very well and professional.

Casa Lila is amazing, like a beautiful palace full of lanterns and beautiful artefacts. The pink powder room is really special and even better than the photos.
The roof terrace for delicious breakfast was perfect. The staff all made us feel at home and welcome.
It is well situated as it is close to the gate to the port and sea.
We stayed for three nights and I'd definitely stay there again. I was sad the leave.
I loved the rose petals too!
Thank you making our stay so special.

Room Tip: The rose powder room is amazing. It has a bath AND hot water and towels with rose petals. The bed is inside an arched alcove with curtains and more petals! Like a princess palace. Oh yes, and a fire place with incense. Perfect.

Our stay in Riad Casa Lila was excellent. We really enjoyed the level of service of the hotel staff, the beautifull views during breakfast and the clean comfortable rooms. It's possible to get massages in the Riad and I could highly recommend those.

We stayed here in June 2012 and discovered we were the only guests! We got the option to pick any room we wanted and went for the top floor. Room was perfect. Simply perfect. No imperfections. Beautifully decorated and cleaned properly every day with rose petals put back on the sink and bed. How romantic!

Location is great. Its a small medina anyway but if you come from the main gate its a straight walk and easy to find.

Food: Breakfast was fine. Nothing amazing but not bad also. We didnt eat all the food given to us so the owners personally asked what we would like to eat. Very attentive. Like this.

Service: The chap at reception was a little quiet and came across as indifferent but he just struggled with english. We decided (twice!) to bring food back to the riad to eat and he laid out a table for us with music. Who does that? Good service.

Only criticism is the noise the seagulls make in the morning. They tend to come sit on the roof and so if you're staying on the top floor you will hear very loud seagulls who will def wake you up.
