We recently stayed at the Riad Baladin and as soon as we walked in the door we knew we had made the right choice. It has a lovely soothing atmosphere, decorated in calming tones with lovely rooms, a decadent hot tub and a great welcome from Nicole and her team. Stay there if you can!

Service was excellent and the hotel manager was lovely, very helpful and approachable and spoke excellent English. She recommended the best places to visit and eat and made us feel very welcome.

Myself and my husband stayed at Riad Baladin for 7 nights and it was everything we had hoped for. The Riad is beautifully decorated, cool and airy. Breakfast is served on the roof top terrace by 3 wonderful ladies-always smiling and accommodating! Nicole is a lovely person and very knowledgeable about her local area. She recommends restaurants, days out, massages... More

By accident we stumbled on this hidden gem. We were welcomed by the lovely Nicole and her friendly dog. We planned to stay for 2 nights but end up staying 4 as we loved the place so much. As we did not make a reservation we had to switch between 3 different rooms but that was no problem at all... More

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!
