So happy to have chosen Riad Baladin for our stay in Essaouira. Location is perfect in the heart of the medina, the riad is hidden away down a little side street so get a luggage helper to show you the way when you arrive. The rooms & general decoration are beautiful & the jacuzzi is a lovely addition (included in... More

This is truly a hotel within the small, narrow streets of Essaouira integrated into a Riad. There is simply nothing going wrong here: great design, above par breakfast, enough space on the roof terrace and a jacuzzi free of charge. Expecially for couples, this may be a romantic retreat. However, it does come at a price tag.

Riad Baladin is a gem! White-washed, relaxed, elegantly and tastefully appointed. A wonderful jacuzzi to soak in before bedtime. Breakfast was delicious, served on a terrace with a view of the ocean. The room was very clean, bright and airy. The beds were comfortable. We called when we arrived in Essaouira and Claudia met us at the car. She showed... More

We spent 5 days at the Riad Baladin and loved every minute of it. Claudia and Axelle were both fantastic. Axelle met us at the Supratours bus station as we made our way to Essaouira from Marrakech which was very helpful as we had no idea where we were going. On our arrival Claudia sat with us and showed us... More

A hidden gen in Essaouira's streets, in centre ( almost ) of the Medina this place is luxuriously equipped, tastefully decorated and secure. The management were helpful and the rooms cleaned regularly and well. The breakfasts on the roof - well suffice it to say I did not want them to end. A really special place.

We spent a couple of days in the Riad Baladin and enjoyed it very much. In the morning you woke up by the noise of the sea and the seagulls and then started with a great break breakfast. From there you could dive "prepared" into the Medina. There was no problem that our daughters could go out as well (14,... More

From our first steps inside Riad Baladin we were blown away by the tranquil, stylish, and beautiful interior. Our expectations were exceeded further by the manager, Nicole, who made the effort to pick us up from the bus station and guide us to the Riad. She even took the time to explain to us, and mark on a map, which... More

A big thanks to Nicole and her wonderful staff for their warm welcome and a pleasant, comfortable stay with my tour group in May 2014. Before we headed to our blissful, white washed, beachy-style rooms, Nicole took the time to fully inform us of Essaouira, great places to visit, eat and see…accompanied by a pocket map…very practical. The rooms were... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Riad Baladin; Nicole and her team were very welcoming to us and Nicole took time on both days to sit with us and help us come up with itineraries. She gave us some good recommendations. Our room ('chambre blanche') was beautiful and light, with a very relaxed and beachy vibe appropriate for Essaouira. The... More

What can I say about Riad Baladin, but absolutely beautiful. My husband, son and myself stayed there for a week. We wanted a holiday where we would see enough culture and also be able to relax, due to our hectic working life in the city (London). Well I could not have asked for anything more. Nicole was just so accommodating... More
