This is our second stay in Essaouira, at Ryad Lyon Mogador. Last year we stayed for 9 days but as we had such a wonderful time we decided this time to stay for 2 weeks. We were not disappointed - as good as ever! The owners are wonderful and welcoming and very informative. Giving us good information about good restaurants... More

This was a wonderful riad for our family. It is right in the heart of the medina but with a rooftop terrace high enough to have an unobstructed view of the ocean. The rooms and the entire riad were very clean and they cleaned and straightened the rooms every day. The breakfast was enormous and varied in someway each day.... More

We booked in this Riad for two nights but ended up staying 4 nights instead. This stay was by far the best experience in terms of hospitality we made in two weeks of traveling through Morocco. We stayed in the room called "Egypt". The cozy room was very need and clean just as the rest of the Riad. Towels were... More

A gem in the heart of Essaioura, the couple who owns the guest house are amazing hosts. My brother and I stayed for 2 nights in December and really enjoyed the hospitality. The rooms are all nicely themed and decorated, very clean and neat. The hotel is located on a quite alley and has secured entry, close to all the... More

We stayed here for 4 nights at the end of December 2014 after travelling through Morocco and staying at 5 other destinations. We are a family of 5 adults and a 4 year old. This riad is probably the best. It's located in a quiet part of the medina. Everything you want to see is within walking distance. The owners,... More

The Ryad is a real gem in the heart of the Medina. Lorianne and Didier are excellent hosts, very warm and friendly and always available for advice or just 'a good chat.' We stayed over Christmas and were invited to share a glass of Sangria and to join other guests to listen to live music at a Christmas Eve reception... More

My family stayed here just after Christmas 2014. The riad is clean, comfortable and very conveniently located. The breakfast served on the roof terrace is superb and fuelled us for the day. The owners are knowledgeable, friendly and very welcoming. I have no hesitation in recommending this riad to everyone.

stayed for Christmas Day in dec 2014, and had a wonderful stay in their simplest room. Clean and cozy, the hosts welcomed us and gave us an excellent orientation and was extremely generous throughout our entire stay. The breakfast was also delicious on their patio overlooking the city. Highly recommended.

We visited this Riad end of October and unfortunately only stayed there for 1 night. It took us a while to find a Riad or hotel with acceptable reviews. This Riad fully lived up to our hopes and wishes. Happy we booked this Riad.
