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. We absolutely loved this little hotel - beautifully decorated inside, they told us to choose a room with no extra cost as we were the only guests staying that day. We chose one of... More

Upon arrival in Essaouira we phoned for directions and were pleasantly surprised by Herve's offer to come and collect us. Check in was quick and accompanied by tea and Moroccan biscuits. 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

As soon as we arrived at the bus station, we were greeted by Otman, who was replacing the owners at the time. He made sure that we had everything we needed and had a great experience in Essaouira. He went out of his way to help us whether it was looking for a place to eat or figuring out our... More

my boyfriend and i stayed here in June and had the best time. We looked at around 10 riads before stumbing upon this beautiful place. The rooms are all immaculately decorated with hand painted furniture and the morning sun shining through the coloured glass in the rooftop room was stunning to wake up to each day. We feel as though... More

There were a total of 7 of us on our holiday. After spending a few days in Marrakech, we took a bus to Essaouira. We had a lovely welcome by Ismahane at the station, greeted with a glass of mint tea and cakes on arrival at the Riad. Hana and Herve are a sweet couple who own this Riad. They... More

We rented the whole Riad as there were two families on this trip. It is in the Medina, and also a very short walk to the beach. Everything you could possibly want is within a short walk. The rooms are imaginatively decorated and stylish. The only reason I haven't given it 5* is because our shower was a bit substandard... More
