We booked 3 nights, we had a wonderful visit. Nicole and nadine, who manage the riad, gave us a warm and informative welcome, fantastic hosts who go the extra mile. Lovely atmosphere, great recommendations for where to go and what to do. Very personal and experienced knowledge always given. We felt very safe as 2 female travellers. Would recommend though...

Very nice place, it's not your standard hotel so don't be expecting that! It doesn't take away from how good it is though. The rooms are beautiful but take care - they are super personal so if you are travelling with someone you aren't very close with it could be too personal! Totally secure - we left our room wide...

My family (4 persons) stayed in Riad Baladin for 6 nights in December 2015. Amazing place with nice rooms, fantastic terraces with great views and a delicious breakfast. Nicole (the owner) is very helpful/resourceful and can recommend the best restaurants or organise any activity for the visitor. We had an amazing horse ride on the beach.

My boyfriend and I stayed in 2014 for just 2 nights, and although we loved our short trip, we left feeling like we hadn't spent enough time in Riad Baladin and Essaouira. So we came back again in 2015, this time for a week over New Year's Eve. We're so happy we did - although Essaouira is a small place,... More

Very charming riad, nicely decorated and very comfortable stay. Breakfast on the rooftop was especially nice. The owner Nicole was very helpful and friendly. She gave us recommendation on all the must see and must try places in Essaouira. Despite our short visit (less than 24 hr stay), we were able to hit all the highlights. She helped made Essaoura...

Tucked away in a side street close to the sea facing walls. Nicole had a porter waiting to help me with my bag when I got off the bus from Marrakech. That was such a great help with getting to the riad. The room was quaint and just lovely with it's thatched ceiling, wood floors and wood frame bed. Bathroom... More

They take time to make us feel welcome. Very child friendly as well. Always ready for advice. Clean (small) rooms. Good advice on the city. Very good taxi service. Bigger than it looks on the outside. Nice roof terrace.

Main worker says she told me to take my things out by noon, but neither we nor two of her coworkers had any recollection of that. -walls made of glass and wood are... More

Dear guests of Riad Baladin Those guests stayed at our Riad for only one night and left the hotel by 3.00pm by leaving all their stuff in their room till then without asking for it.... Since we had some new guests we had to take everything out by 1.00pm (we waited for their return all morning!). Our house rules are... More
