A lovely gem of a Riad, beautifully decorated and hosted by the very welcoming Nicole. Although I only stayed one night, it was the perfect place to retreat after exploring the sights and sounds of Essaouira. Highly recommended!

My friend Mel B organised the most wonderful treat to Morocco and Riad Baladine was part of our "just chill out " week. Nicole and Claudia and the great people that work with them will remain with us and we can't wait to re visit. It hit the spot.They called us the massage queens, ask for Marcello or Valerie or...

Wonderful three nights here in exquisite accommodation with lovely staff and excellent Host in Nicole- nothing was too much trouble for her! She gave us loads of local tips about places to visit, restaurants, terraces and shopping! She made restaurant reservations and organised our transport back to the airport. Thank you for a fab weekend.

My wife and l own a small bed and breakfast and can only praise the level of dedication of Nicole. A host making you feel like you are staying at the house of a friend. Perfect view too and the fireplace in the bedroom was the cherry on the cake. We ll be back and merci Nicole!

Really liked the style of this riad, stayed in the amore room which looked fabulous with a rustic 4 poster bed but it literally creaked with every turn so don't go planning anything too romantic as the whole riad will hear you!! Plus there's no door from the bedroom to the bathroom so if you're squeamish about toilet privacy maybe... More

Had a lovely stay despite the weather . We arrived in floods of rain, but Claudia negotiated us paddling through the medina ! We did get a couple of sunny days and enjoyed relaxing on the roof terrace. It has a good atmosphere and was quite sociable when we were there . Excellent location - near to sea, restaurants, and...

My wife and I stayed there for two nights and we had a great time. The riad is managed by a Swiss lady named Nicole. She was very helpful re: activities and restaurant recommendations. The riad itself is very, very nice and clean. It has a bit of a hippy vibe to it! It is also well located. The breakfast... More

Nicole looked after us beautifully in her well run Riad for our five night stay. Our room (chambre blanche) was bright and breezy and to be recommended. The Riad reflected the laid back atmosphere of Essaouira and is a great place to base yourself for a few nights. I'd also thoroughly recommend Valerie the in house Raiki practitioner.

What a great place to be in the Medina. It is a very detail-oriented hotel that focuses on looking like home while still being exotic. It is greatly located and they also have a jacuzzi, which makes anything much better. I just cannot recommend this riad enough.

What a treasure tucked away in the heart of the Medina! A beautiful , bright and spotlessly clean Riad run by a very friendly hostess, Nicole. An nourishing breakfast was served by very friendly and amenable staff on the rooftop. The Riad had so much character and the hot tub was an added bonus. Nicole gave us great tips on... More
