The apartments at residence Louzani are the perfect place to stay while visiting Essaouira. If you stay in a sea view apartment you're in paradise - the view of the beach, sea and sunsets are priceless - I wish there was an option to buy the apartment!!
The apartments have everything you need, and grocery stores are close by (supermarkets are a short taxi drive away) so you can cook whatever you fancy, or if you prefer there's plenty of restaurants and cheaper takeaways round the corner.
It's a small family run apartments with owner Zakariya who is always so helpful, we just can't help but feel at home... Iv lost count how many times we've been to Essaouira and we always stay here (and many friends have stayed after our recommendations)
Overall it's clean - actually spotless, airy and light, very spacious, well worth the money, brilliant location - opposite the beach and a short walk to the old medina, friendly helpful staff who make you feel at home, amazing views (even better from the roof top terrace), nice hot shower, comfortable beds, free wifi... I think I could go on and on
Just be aware, all apartment are reached by stairs, there's no lift. We have stayed with a baby and toddlers and it's manageable, they allow you to keep the pram downstairs.
We stayed here for five nights in the top appartment with sea view. Not only this appartment has an excellent value for money, the friendly owner, Zakarias, is always at hand for information, the doorkeeper (Abdel Karim) also is really supporting and the appartment is thourougly cleaned every day, including clean towels. It is sufficiently equiped and close to the beach and restaurants (cheap ones and more expensive ones). Really a great place to stay.
