Riad Emotion exceeded all of our expectations and we had a very enjoyable 2-night stay here. We had a very warm welcome and were offered the best mint tea and pastries of our trip. Siad and the owners were very friendly and helpful and provided us with a useful map and information on the best restaurants in town. We had... More

Having arrived in Essaouira by Supratours around 9pm bus we made our way to the Riad Emotion - but of course got lost. Luckily the women in the hammam we went in to ask for the way called the riad and 2 min later Said picked us up. The sign on the door is a small sticker so although we've... More

Great breakfast and staff were so friendly, but our room was so dark and the decor was just odd (shoes as lamps). The riad was more expensive than others we stayed at and we could not understand why, the one prior had a huge terrace and big bath in the room and was really suprerior. We were disappointed and just... More

We had a very enjoyable stay at Riad Emotion, and were glad we gave ourselves a couple of nights to enjoy Essaouira properly. The Riad is stylish and charmingly furnished, as well as being in a convenient location in the centre of the old town. We particularly appreciated the recommendations of our host, Albert, who pointed us in the direction... More

We stayed here for 4 nights during our two week honeymoon in Morocco. We loved to stay in the Riads in Marrakech so we were glad that we could stay the last 5 days of our honeymoon in this riad in Essaouira. Riad emotion is built on emotion: you can see it in everything, it has a story. The riad... More

Was just emotional, great dinner and really lovely service! The breakfast on the terasse was perfect and selfmade. So we recommend the central place in the Medina from where you can do your trips around Essaouira.

My sister and I stayed at Hotel Emotion in October 2013 for just one night as we were only in Essaouira for a couple of days.

Herve and Hanane provided tips on what to see and do in Essaouira. During tea we made a great decision by deciding to have dinner at the Riad. There... More
